Hi

I have a .sql file that I have to run on a database each day. When I make a new query on the database in sql server management studio express and paste in the contents of my .sql file it runs perfectly.

The question is, can this process be run automatically by a script or similar?

You're using SQL on a database, not on managment studio, so yes SQL syntax is the same in both.

Create a bat file with something like :
sqlcmd -i file.sql        // i'm not sure about syntax - try the link below

To run a script every day use Task Scheduler
