Retrieves a list of all SQLAgent scheduled jobs, regardless of their type and active status.  
The list is augmented with last run status, duration, message and notification data.

** NOTE:  This code was written for SQL 2005 and greater.  There are slightly different views for obtaining data from SQL 2000, or for obtaining data in SQL 2005+ that has been subjected to an upgrade from SQL 2000.  While upgrading maintenance plans generally works, I have always found it beneficial in the long term to recreate them from scratch.  The feature set is better, and there are some tasks that are not 100% happy working across editions.  I have therefore not included versions of the code that support SQL 2000 version maintenance plans.


Stored Procedure:

DROP PROC usp_GetMaintPlanJobLastRunSummary

CREATE PROC usp_GetMaintPlanJobLastRunSummary

Purpose:   To list all SQL Maintenance Plan jobs
           scheduled using SQL Agent and
           the last run details if they exist.
           Utilised the following function(s) to retrieve
           results and/or to enhance readability:
               dbo.udf_GetMSDBJobList - gets a basic set of job details
               dbo.udf_IntToDateTime - converts the MSDB date and time integers into a datetime variable
           NOTE:  This SP is basically the usp_GetMSDBJobLastRunSummary sp with an additional join
           via the sysmaintplan_subplans table to screen out all non-MaintPlan jobs.
