USE Master

EXEC xp_startmail 'outlook', 'drive8'

Use inv_tracking

Declare @MyRecipients nvarchar (50)
declare @expirery_date datetime
declare @EmpID int(4)

Set @MyRecipients = ''

Declare MyCursor Cursor For

select EmpID, expirery_date from driver_licence_abstract where DateDIFF('d',now(), expirery_date) < 90

Open MyCursor

Fetch Next From MyCursor Into @EmpID, @expirery_date

While @@Fetch_Status = 0

Set @MyMessage = 'Please be advised that : ' + @EmpID+ '.
Drivers Licence will expire in 3 months. Please Notifie the Branch Mangers.
The experation date is : '+ @expirery_date + '.'

Exec master.dbo.xp_sendmail @MyRecipients, @MyMessage
