How to run .sql file directly from query analyzer (MS SQL 2000).

I am attempting to run several sql scripts originating in different .sql files. How can I call these files / print files in query analyzer?

Example:

USE DB

Execute all contents in scriptone.sql
Execute all contents in scripttwo.sql
etc.


I have many datatransfer scripts and table populating scripts that I want to run all at once but do not want them to be in the same file for organization.

Thanks in advance.

You will have to open each one and execute from SQL Query Analyzer.

Not quite the answer I was looking for. What about inserting the textfile contents into a variable and executing that? Stored procedures? Functions? Bribery, anything???

From SQL Query Analyzer that is your only realistic choice.  Alternatively consider using osql to run from the command line.

Umm... Can you create a stored procedure for each of the script, and then run it like your example? You may:

CREATE PROCEDURE proc1
AS
BEGIN
    -- The content of scriptone.sql goes here...
END
GO

CREATE PROCEDURE proc2
AS
BEGIN
    -- The content of scripttwo.sql goes here...END
GO

Then run it with:
EXEC proc1
EXEC proc2

DECLARE @strSQL nvarchar(max)
DECLARE @dbname nvarchar(max)

/*  
--- code here to select your specific database
-- example below
SELECT   name
into #tmpDB
from sysdatabases where name not in
 ('master','model','msdb','tempdb','dbadata', 'ReportServer','ReportServerTempDB')
*/

--- build your dynamic sql
SELECT top 1 @dbname = name from #tmpDB
WHILE @dbname is not null
BEGIN

--- build your osql statement and run it in xp_cmdshell (you will need to really clean up my tsql below
SELECT @strSQL = 'xp_cmdshell ''osql  -d' + @dbname + '  -  your other parameters and sql files'''
EXEC (@strSQL)

---after that one runs delete the one you just ran
DELETE FROM #tmpdb where name = @dbname

--- zero db name so when it doesn't pull one it will still be null
SELECT @dbname = null

--- get next db name
SELECT top 1 @dbname = name from #tmpDB

END

--- all done

Here is a working version from my system

DECLARE @strSQL nvarchar(max)
DECLARE @dbname nvarchar(max)
DECLARE @server nvarchar(max)

SELECT @server = 'PQA-IVDB'



SELECT   name
into #tmpDB
from master.dbo.sysdatabases where name not in
 ('master','model','msdb','tempdb','dbadata', 'ReportServer','ReportServerTempDB'
 ,'dbdata','RPQ00003_Logging','RPQ00008_Logging')

--- build your dynamic sql
SELECT top 1 @dbname = name from #tmpDB
WHILE @dbname is not null
BEGIN

--- build your osql statement and run it in xp_cmdshell (you will need to really clean up my tsql below
SELECT @strSQL = 'xp_cmdshell ''sqlcmd  -d ' + @dbname + ' -S ' + @server + ' -E -i "\\pqc-nas\engineering\Builds\eHR\ProdSupport\eHR.1.0.0.1\DBDeployment\eHR Conslidated upgrade script 02102010.sql"'''
--EXEC (@strSQL)
select @strSQL

---after that one runs delete the one you just ran
DELETE FROM #tmpdb where name = @dbname

SELECT @dbname = null

SELECT top 1 @dbname = name from #tmpDB


END

drop table #tmpDB

Also, use osql since this is sql 2000
