Job Schedules – SQL Agent


This info should be easier to get than it is. Keep in mind that for something to run the subscription and schedule both have to be enabled.

To be fair, the majority of this code was grabbed from the internet, and this is not something I modified to the extent that I could call it my own. Michael Abair is the original author, and the original code can be found at the link below. My contribution is limited to very minor changes and a lot of hitting the tab key. I know it works just as well, maybe even 2ms faster, without the whitespace, but I had to do it.

  1. To save yourself time and lost fingernails from hitting the Tab key:
    - install Notepad++ (it’s a life/time-saver!)
    - under Plugins => Plugin Manager, get “Poor Man’s T-SQL Formatter”.

    Another thing you can do in Notepad++ is Languages => S => SQL. Very pretty!

    Apologies if you are already aware of these things :)

    • There’s never a need to apologize. I wasn’t aware of that feature, although I’ve had the program installed for years. It’s one of those things you never think to look for.
