SSIS Newbie - How to send records from a table in an e-mail attachment using SSIS package RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hi dear all,

    I am  kind of desperate, please could anyone help me? I am very new into SSIS.

    My task is to send the records from a SQL table as an HTML email attachment using SSIS ?

    Following steps so far:

    In the SSIS package I have placed the following tasks:

    Execute SQL task, Foreach loop container, Script task within the Foreach loop container and Send Email task.

    I put the result set from SQL get data in a systemobject Variable ( NewVariableOject)

    In the next step I have configured the Foreach Loop Container and set the needed variable mappings.

    Further, I have put the C# Code into the Scripttask which is located in the ForEachLoop Container.

             * code needs to write to the variable.  To add the variable, save this script, close this instance of

    As a last step I send the E-Mail via Send Mail Task and it really works, meaning it displays the table data in the mail body.

    However, I need the results as a table in an attachment in the mail. What do I need to change in my Visual C# 2012 Code?

    Please explain for beginners ;-)

    I am using Visual Studio 2014.

    Please help me out. Thanks in advance
