first you have to fetch your data from database
then write them into excel file and store in a path in your server
finally send excel file with email
here is a good sample that you want , please follow below link:

yes you can do it,
first export your data to excel and next send email with sql server
insert into OPENROWSET('Microsoft.Jet.OLEDB.4.0','Excel 8.0;Database=d:\test.xlsx;;HDR=YES',
'SELECT * FROM [Sheet1$]')
select * from myTable
follow below links:
for send email you can try :
@profile_name = 'nationstar University',
@recipients = 'email@example.com',
@query = 'select * from myTable' ,
@subject = 'Test email',
@attach_query_result_as_file = 1,
@query_result_separator=' ' -- tab
please refer to below links :
also here are many example from both of them together

Are you available to use VSTO or Excel VBA Object Model?
If yes, then you can create an Excel file from template from scratch, Then insert data in it from SQL Server and then send mail.
With VSTO you can use C# or VB.Net and with VBA you need to write code in VBA Editor in Excel.
Both VSTO and VBA share the same Object Model.
You can try to refer links below may help you.
Object model (Excel VBA reference)
Excel Object Model Overview
Example code to create Excel file from template.
Dim newBook As Workbook
Dim currBook As Workbook
Dim currSheet As Worksheet
Dim rCnt As Integer, cCnt As Integer
Dim dogNum As Integer, savePath As String, TemplatePath As String
savePath = "C:\Sample\" ' Set as needed
TemplatePath = "C:\Sample\sample.xltx" ' Set as needed
Set currBook = ActiveWorkbook
Set currSheet = currBook.Sheets("Sheet1")
Application.ScreenUpdating = False
Set newBook = Workbooks.Add(TemplatePath)
newBook.SaveAs savePath & "dog_c" & dogNum & ".xlsx"
Example to fetch data from SQL Server to Excel.
' Create a connection object.
Dim cnPubs As ADODB.Connection
Set cnPubs = New ADODB.Connection
' Provide the connection string.
Dim strConn As String
'Use the SQL Server OLE DB Provider.
strConn = "PROVIDER=SQLOLEDB;"
'Connect to the Pubs database on the local server.
strConn = strConn & "DATA SOURCE=(local);INITIAL CATALOG=pubs;"
'Use an integrated login.
strConn = strConn & " INTEGRATED SECURITY=sspi;"
'Now open the connection.
' Create a recordset object.
Dim rsPubs As ADODB.Recordset
Set rsPubs = New ADODB.Recordset
' Assign the Connection object.
.ActiveConnection = cnPubs
' Extract the required records.
.Open "SELECT * FROM Authors"
' Copy the records into cell A1 on Sheet1.
' Tidy up
Set rsPubs = Nothing
Set cnPubs = Nothing

How to send email with multiple attachments attached in Excel?
Mail the whole workbook
Same thing you can perform using VSTO.
Note: Office Automation will not properly on Server Side. So If you are working on server side then you may consider to use Open XML or other third party libraries.
