I'm newbie in SQL commands. Is possible to combine this commands?

INSERT ##filedetails
EXEC master..getfiledetails 'c:\filename.txt'
SELECT filename FROM ##filenametable

Command SELECT must be parameter of EXEC master..getfiledetails procedure and output I want to insert to ##filedetails table.

Like this: INSERT ##filedetails EXEC master..getfiledetails SELECT filename FROM ##filenametable

Thank you for response. Martin

Yes. you can execute lot of sql statements at ones. but I think before you run this SQL. You must create a temp table First.

Yes, the table ##filedetails was created first and the table ##filenametable contains a lot of path-filenames.

If I run script

INSERT ##filedetails EXEC master..xp_getfiledetails 'c:\pagefile.sys'

one row is OK inserted to the table ##filedetails. But I want run this commands for all rows in ##filenametable.

Can you help me? Thanks. M.

write cursor..

DECLARE @Filename varchar(100)

DECLARE CURSOR cur
SELECT filename FROM ##filenametable

OPEN cur

FETCH NEXT FROM cur into @Filename

WHILE @@FETCH_STATUS = 0
BEGIN
      INSERT ##filedetails EXEC master..xp_getfiledetails @Filename
      FETCH NEXT FROM cur into @Filename
END

CLOSE cur
DEALLOCATE cur
