I have tried running a batch file which invokes first bcp to import data into a table, and then isql to process the data imported into the table. The isql fails to do anything and there is also no error output. But if I run the same isql command inside a different batch file a bit later, and separately from the first invocation, the processing is done correctly in that case.
Is there any possible negative interaction by running bcp then isql right after it inside a batch file, without delay in between? If delay is needed, what is the best way to accomplish. I have been spending hours trying to determine the cause of this problem. I do not have easy access to error logs, since it is a shared hosting server, but probably I could get to them if that is truly important.
