Thanks for your constructive reply. I am using db maintenance plan and
in sql sglagent job window I am storing the output in file. In case of
step 1 fails, my aim is to extract the output file name of step 1 and
passit as an attachment to second step.

Turns out that I was wrong. Eavesdropping on a discussion between some
of my MVP colleagues, I learnt that SQL Agent has a couple of tokens
that you can pass to a job step, including the job id and the step number.

For a list of available tokens, look in Books Online in the sp_add_jobstep

Also, see http://www.sqldev.net/sqlagent/SQLAgentStepTokens.htm for some

I used to be able to run the following ASP code on our corp machine (W2K Server Edition and IIS-5) and successfully send a net-msg to anyone on our intranet. Last week it stopped working... and I'm not sure what changed. (I had applied ALL the W2K update patches... but... I'm not sure if the problem started before or after that.) Did any recent W2K patches change the way createObject, wScript.shell, or "NET SEND" works?
