Add a date in the @subject and @body of SQL dbmail

I would like to add the current date to the @subject and @body in the embeded exec for send_dbmail.

@subject ='Crowe files not created for ',
   @body = 'The processing of yesterdays Crowe Files did not occur.
			B/AR Close Day process has not completed. The Crowe files
			will need to be created manually after the B/AR module
			has been closed.'

Open in new window

What is the syntax?

You will want to create variables to hold the strings since they can't be manipulated inline then just use those variables for your sp_send_dbmail call.

DECLARE @subect NVARCHAR(255);

SET @subject = 'Crowe files not create for ' + CONVERT(VARCHAR(), GETDATE(), 100);

Refer to link below to find the date format you want:

You can just replicate this for the body.
