Running SQL Scripts

We are deploying an application based on MSDE.  I would like to store the database creation and generation details in SQL Script files.  This is an easy solution with SQL Server because I can simply run the scripts from the command line in the installation with the ISQL tool. (Note, I can't use an interactive solution because from the user's standpoint, the database create's itself on install).  The problem is now the solution is based on MSDE, which I am not entirely sure if ISQL (not ISQL/w) is deployed with MSDE.  If it is not, is it redistributable.  If it is not redistributable, does anybody have some good ADO code samples to read an SQL script that uses the same syntax as ISQL.  What I mean by syntax, is support for the "USE <DATABASENAME>" and Go command?

If you have access to the SQL-DMO object libraries then you can use the following to achieve this:

 Dim sqlServer As SQLDMO.sqlServer
  Set sqlServer = New SQLDMO.sqlServer
  sqlServer.Connect "MySQLServer"
  sqlServer.Databases("MyDatabase").ExecuteImmediate Replace(strBatch,"GO",vbCRLF & "GO" & vbCRLF), SQLDMOExec_ContinueOnError
  sqlServer.DisConnect
  Set sqlServer = Nothing

Where strBatch contains the sql batch that you want to run.

I am pretty sure that SQL-DMO is installed when you install the SQL Client tools, like ISQL.

I think that you are on the right track when you say you need to read the scripts into an ADO project and then execute them.

GO is not a SQL keyword, it is an ISQL keyword that means just what it says.  So whenever you encounter a GO in your scripts, just execute your SQL string.

You should be able to use the command line version (OSQL) which I think is shipped with MSDE.
