    @@Pathum Anjana why back history information using Power-shell and not from MSDB tables ? as you want to schedule a job for html output? – AA.SC Oct 30 '14 at 5:58

Code gets backup history for all databases on a server and generates HTML report

Step 1:

   DECLARE @Body VARCHAR(MAX),
        @TableHead VARCHAR(MAX),
        @TableTail VARCHAR(MAX)
    SET NoCount ON ;


    SET @TableTail = '</body></html>' ;

    SET @TableHead = '<html><head>' + '<style>'
        + 'td {border: solid black 1px;padding-left:5px;padding-right:5px;padding-top:1px;padding-bottom:1px;font-size:10pt;} '
        + '</style>' + '</head>' + '<body>'


    SELECT  @Body = ''



    SELECT  @Body = @Body + '<table cellpadding=0 cellspacing=0 border=0>'
            + '<tr><td bgcolor=#E6E6FA>Database Name </td>'
            + '<td width="100px" bgcolor=#E6E6FA>Backup Size</td>'
            + '<td width="100px" bgcolor=#E6E6FA>Time Taken</td>'
            + '<td width="100px" bgcolor=#E6E6FA>Backup Start Date</td>'
            + '<td width="100px" bgcolor=#E6E6FA><b>First LSN</b></td>'
            + '<td width="100px" bgcolor=#E6E6FA><b>Last LSN</b></td>'
            + '<td width="100px" bgcolor=#E6E6FA><b>Backup Type</b></td>'
            + '<td width="100px" bgcolor=#E6E6FA><b>Server Name</b></td>'
            + '<td width="100px" bgcolor=#E6E6FA><b>Recovery Model</b></td>'
            + '<td width="300px" bgcolor=#E6E6FA>Physical Device Name</td>   </tr>'

Step 2: create a new job add this code in step and schedule it according to your requirement enter image description here

  • Wow, you've hard-coded your table to be over 5,000px wide. How many monitors does that span? – Aaron Bertrand Oct 30 '14 at 13:55
  • Thanks @AaronBertrand you mentioned my mistake, I updated script. but width="100px" is optional property of TD tag. – AA.SC Oct 30 '14 at 14:02
