Hi,

I have

D:\Tables
D:\SPs

directories. In D:\Tables, I have create tables scripts. Similarly in D:\SPs, I have create stored procedures scripts.

I have written a .CMD file to install these scripts in the database - creating tables / creating stored procedures etc...

D:\Sample.CMD
============

echo ---------------
echo --- Setup START
echo ---------------

FOR %%f IN
(
  ..\Tables\*.sql
  ..\SPs\*.sql

) DO (echo Executing %%f) & (osql -E -n -S localhost -d Sample -w 8192 -i %%f) || (echo Error %%f & exit)

echo ---------------
echo --- Setup END
echo ---------------

In this script:

Server - localhost
Database - Sample

This is NOT working properly when i double click on this file. Can you please FIX the above program and make it working ? BTW: when i double click on the file, it is showing the results and disappearing quickly. Can you make it stand by until i press any key ?

Thanks

When testing batch scripts, always open a command prompt and start them from there, not through Explorer; that way, you'll be able to see the error.
Anyway, try this:
echo ---------------
echo --- Setup START
echo ---------------
 
FOR %%f IN ("..\Tables\*.sql" "..\SPs\*.sql" do (
  echo Executing %%f
  osql -E -n -S localhost -d Sample -w 8192 -i "%%f"
  if errorlevel 1 (
    echo Error %%f
    exit /b
  )
)
 
echo ---------------
echo --- Setup END
echo ---------------

FOR %%f IN
(

      "..\SPs\*.sql"
) DO (echo Executing %%f osql -E -n -S localhost -d Sample -w 8192 -i "%%f" if errorlevel 1 (echo Error %%f exit /b))
 
echo ---------------
echo --- Setup END
echo ---------------

This is NOT working. Can you please verify my code ? Please test on your side.

Thanks

The syntax of the command is incorrect.

Missing closing bracket in the first line, this works:
@echo off
echo ---------------
echo --- Setup START
echo ---------------
 
FOR %%f IN ("..\Tables\*.sql" "..\SPs\*.sql") do (
  echo Executing %%f
  ECHO osql -E -n -S localhost -d Sample -w 8192 -i "%%f"
  if errorlevel 1 (
    echo Error %%f
    exit /b
  )
)
 
echo ---------------
echo --- Setup END
echo ---------------

Sorry, forgot to remove the ECHO I put in for testing, currently the osql command will only be shown, not executed. Just remove the capitalized ECHO in front of the osql command.
