sp_oacreate OLE object creation

Hi,

I want to call a dll from a SQL stored procedure, and I'm going to create an OLE object to do this.
So for the procedure sp_OACreate where should I place the dll file, so that it can be found or how can I specify a path. Let say the dll is called temp.dll

The way you "register" dll's with SQL Server is with sp_addextendedproc:

sp_addextendedproc 'xp_hello', 'xp_hello.dll'

But an extended proc has to be created to work with SQL Server--you can't simply register any DLL as an extended proc.

skyrise11, as long as the DLL is registered on the server, the location shouldn't matter.  You just need to make sure that all the dependencies you DLL needs (if any) can be found by it.

Maybe I should rephrase that....You can register the DLL as a stored proc (even if it doesn't exist), but if anyone ever calls it and it's not SQL friendly it could be a bad thing....

I C. It does seem a bit involved after looking into it.
