PagerToTemplate Property

This feature will be removed in a future version of Microsoft SQL Server. Avoid using this feature in new development work, and plan to modify applications that currently use this feature.

The PagerToTemplate property specifies text used to build the To: address line of an e-mail message implementing pager notification for all Microsoft SQL Server operators.


object.PagerToTemplate [= value]


  • object
    An expression that evaluates to an object in the Applies To list

  • value
    A string

Data Type




Prototype (C/C++)

HRESULT GetPagerToTemplate(SQLDMO_LPBSTR pRetVal);
HRESULT SetPagerToTemplate(SQLDMO_LPCSTR NewValue);


SQL Distributed Management Objects (SQL-DMO) strings are always returned as OLE BSTR objects. A C/C++ application obtains a reference to the string. The application must release the reference using SysFreeString.


In the template, SQL Server Agent replaces the character string <#A#> with the pager address of a notified operator. Set the operator pager address using the PagerAddress property.
