How To - View and Disable SQL Agent Jobs with TSQL

Question

How do I list of all SQL Agent Jobs running on a server. You can use SSMS, however the script below will show you the same information using T-SQL. There is also a script to disable the job within each job record. Just copy and paste that record to disable the job.

DECLARE @weekDay TABLE (
      mask      INT
    , maskValue VARCHAR(32)
);
 
INSERT INTO @weekDay
SELECT 1, 'Sunday'  UNION ALL
SELECT 2, 'Monday'  UNION ALL
SELECT 4, 'Tuesday'  UNION ALL
SELECT 8, 'Wednesday'  UNION ALL
SELECT 16, 'Thursday'  UNION ALL
SELECT 32, 'Friday'  UNION ALL
SELECT 64, 'Saturday';
