need to export this table in a mdb file and mail
this mdb to several locations.

trigger or stored procedure. How to export the table in mdb.

2.there are two tables one is cns and second is cns i am having fields
In route i am having fields

I wouldn't recomend doing that in a trigger

by Tony Hopkinson In reply to sql server - trigger/proc ...

I'm not sure you could anyway but you'll be adding everything the trigger does into the transaction it self, the overhead could go from silly to dangerous.

My recomendation would be to create another table and simply flag the requirement to transfer the data.
Then have a separate script/application/sp do the export and mailing if the flag is set.

I'm a bit out of date on SQL Server so I don't know if it will do an export to access and mail the resultant file, but you definitely do not want to do that much processing in a Trigger. They should be in and out things, dead quick, little room for error and be very wary of cascading them.

P.S. questions like the should go the Technical Q & A
Homage to Deepsand.

Wrong forum.

This is a tech. problem, in search of a solution.

It properly belongs in "Technical Q&A," not in "Discussions." Please re-post there.

Not only will you be more likely to attract the attention of those seeking to provide answers, but you will also make it easier for those seeking discussions to find such.

Thank you.
