comment What to do when Sql Server Agent refuses to run a Job Step that references a missing database snapshot
Great solution, exactly what I was after, thanks. (Though, for posterity: I actually have several references to [myDb_snapshot] in the script, including a "use" and some queries. So in the end I decided it was easier to have an additional Step in the job, that only runs on failure of Step 1, that creates [myDb_snapshot]. Best solution for me right now, I think).

@Jon Seigel Yes, what options are available in 2008 (or even 2012)?
