Hi All,

I want to create a script that says:

- Run scriptfile 1  (create database script)
- Run scriptfile 2  (create stored procedures script)
- Run scriptfile 3  (fill database script)

What is the syntax for this?

basically...

osql.exe -dDatabaseName -E -iInputfile -oOutputfile -SserverName


for the create database specify Master or Tempdb as the database

use -E for a trusted connection or -Uuserid -Ppassword for  a sql server login...

invoke osql 3 times once for each script type...

OK, so I can create a .bat file to do this. But isn't there a way to say it in a sql-script file?
Some kind of <execute file> statement or something?

DECLARE @CMD VARCHAR(800)

SET @CMD = 'osql.exe -dDatabaseName -E -iInputfile -oOutputfile -SserverName'

EXECUTE master..xp_cmdshell @CMD
