Yes. Missing_Backups should be a temporary table (#Missing_Backups),
Also, I would avoid the UNION:
insert into #Missing_Backups  -- Assuming you are going to use temporary table
SELECT d.name AS Database, CASE b.Type
                      WHEN 'D' THEN 'Full' 
                       ELSE 'Trn'
                      END as Type,
       ISNULL(CONVERT(VARCHAR,b.backupdate,120),'NEVER') AS [Last Backup]
FROM sys.databases d
LEFT JOIN (SELECT database_name,type,MAX(backup_finish_date) backupdate FROM backupset
           GROUP BY database_name,type) b on d.name=b.database_name
WHERE (backupdate IS NULL OR backupdate < getdate()-1) 
  AND d.name <> 'tempdb'

Open in new window


The rest of the code is to transform in HTML to send the information by email. Depends on what you want to do with the information.
Also, the example considers missing backup as a database that don't has a backup from more than 1 day.

Thank you.

Jim, I will remember that. the goal here was to make sure to use the latest syntax/provision, as our msdb files are big and planning to deploy in big servers with many databases.

thank you again.
