I have a table (tblMessage) with columns (id, title, contents, publishingDateTime, status). The publishingDateTime column is the Date in which the message will publish. I want to change the value of column (status) automatically from (pending to published - OR - from false to true) when it is reached to its publishingDateTime.

How it is possible in Sql Server 2005?

You need to change the status column in the table to a calculated field. This will need to be calculated like:

Case when publishingdatetime
This will result in 0 if pending or 1 if published.
If you prefer you can replace the 0 and 1 in the calculation to pending or published and then the status column will return the text instead
