Pivot and email in SQL


I have the following query

	SELECT UserName, Activity FROM Contact

) src
	COUNT(Activity)  for Activity in ([Call],[Contact],[Deadline])
) piv


Open in new window

It gives me the result like the following

Username Call Contact Deadline
user1     10    5      2
user2     2     2      2
user3     8     12     4
user4     5     2      6
user5     7     8      2

I need to use it to send out email, is there a way to do this? thanks (the email part is working fine, but I need help to put it in HTML format)

 SELECT         @MAIL_BODY1 = @MAIL_BODY1 + 
			'<tr>' +
			'<td>' + UserName + '</td>' +
			'<td>' + Something + '</td>' +
			'<td>' + Something  + '</td>' +
FROM            Something

Thanks for the quick reply. This is actually the original question, I got help from EE to display the counts. But I need to display it horizontally. I use pivot to do it. But I do not know how to put it in html.

ste5anSenior DeveloperCommented:
Did you run my sample? Did you put the HTML into a file to test it?

It exactly does what you want. It outputs your pivoted data. Obviously - as you have missed to post a concise and complete example, including table DDL with sample data INSERT statements as one runnable T-SQL script - I had to mock up yours. And why should I waste time doing so with the base table(s) and the pivoting, which you already have? Thus @Sample is your pivoted result.
