I am building a Auto-It script that connects to ms sql and returns a field for a variable. Here is my query:

SELECT TOP 1 sde_id FROM  sde.SDE_process_information
Displays:

sde_id
116648


But I would like it to just return 116648 only. How do i get results for just one field without the row name.
Thanks

Without looking at your script, it's very hard to change it.
Normally, a query would only return the value, so your script must be specifically inserting the column name.
Does it actually return as a string with embedded line break?

if you are running via sqlcmd try the -H parameter...alternatively  use a stored procedure and an output parameter,,,

Here is the code I am still working on. Mainly I need to figure out the query part. Also this is MSSQL not mysql.
Thanks
;AutoIt Code

$Query = "SELECT TOP 1 sde_id FROM  sde.SDE_process_information"

Func SqlConnection()
	If $adoCn.State = $adStateOpen Then $adoCn.Close
	$adoCn.ConnectionString = $Conn
	$adoCn.Open
	If $adoRs.State = $adStateOpen Then $adoRs.Close
	$adoRs = $adoCn.Execute($Query)
	If $adoRs.State = $adStateOpen Then
		$J = $adoRs.Fields.Count - 2 
		For $K = 0 To $J
		$Output = $Output & $adoRs.Fields($K).Name & @TAB
		Next
		$Output = $Output & @CRLF
		$Output = $Output & $adoRs.GetString(2, -1, @TAB, @CRLF, "Null")
		$adoRs.Close
		GUICtrlSetData($EditResults, $Output)
	EndIf
EndFunc

I 've had a very fast look to your code.
Maybe delete this line?:
$Output = $Output & $adoRs.Fields($K).Name & @TAB

Delete 4 lines otherwise you have a loop that does nothing. You also get an extra CRLF

delete
            For $K = 0 To $J
            $Output = $Output & $adoRs.Fields($K).Name & @TAB
            Next
            $Output = $Output & @CRLF

so you end up with
;AutoIt Code

$Query = "SELECT TOP 1 sde_id FROM  sde.SDE_process_information"

Func SqlConnection()
	If $adoCn.State = $adStateOpen Then $adoCn.Close
	$adoCn.ConnectionString = $Conn
	$adoCn.Open
	If $adoRs.State = $adStateOpen Then $adoRs.Close
	$adoRs = $adoCn.Execute($Query)
	If $adoRs.State = $adStateOpen Then
		$J = $adoRs.Fields.Count - 2 
		$Output = $Output & $adoRs.GetString(2, -1, @TAB, @CRLF, "Null")
		$adoRs.Close
		GUICtrlSetData($EditResults, $Output)
	EndIf
EndFunc
