Hello Experts,

I have the following stored procedure in a SQL DB and would like to write a VBScript that will execute this procedure. Basically what this procedure does is searches a DB for invoices that are delinquent. If the invoice is delinquent, the message in the procedure will show up in the customers profile and we will not offer support until their account is brought current.

I am as new as you can get when it comes to scripting and would like some help trying to figure this out. If there is more info that you need from me just let me know and I will do the best I can to get that info. Thanks in advance for any help.

Just out of interest, why a vbscript? Is this a proof of concept?

You could use the SQL Server Agent to schedule a job to execute the store proc on a regular (eg nightly) basis.

Hi Chrisedebo,

Thanks for the response. From what I currently understand about this particular script is that we want to be able to reuse the script over and over if that makes any sense. Sorry I cant provide more info then that right now. I can try to elaborate once I get some more info.

Thanks,

Hello Again,

After looking at the SQL Server Agent as mentioned above, we actually do have a job that is specifically designed to do that every morning. That job is failing for some reason and I will have to look into this a bit further. Thanks for the help and I will reward points accordingly.

Thanks,

Our Dev teams are like yours. They’re continually cranking out code for new features/bugs fixes, testing, deploying, testing some more, responding to production monitoring events and more. It’s complex. So, we thought you’d like to see what’s working for us.

This should do it using osql, a command line SQL utility for SQL Server.

The below script will execute store proc "SQLStoredProc" in database "DB" on server "SERVER" using a trusted connection.

if you wish to use a different userid then you'll need the -U USERID switch with -P PSWD unless you wish to be prompted for the password.
Set WshShell = WScript.CreateObject("WScript.Shell")
 
'The server name is SERVER the database is DB and the proc is SQLStoredProc
WshShell.Run "osql -S SERVER -E -Q""EXEC DB..SQLStoredProc"" "
