I have a simple script that I run in VB asp.net each day from a button on a web page.
I want to run this automatically each day at the same time.
My first thought is to create a VB console application and set a batch job to run that. If that is the wrong thing to do please stop me now, because my querie is how I do this and connect to a database.
I have taken my script from asp.nt and it quite neatly drops into VB 2010 for me with a couple of exceptions. bascally how do I connect to the sql database.
Code is attached below. in asp.net the sql connection string is help in the web config file, is there an equivalent to that in VB. (I hope so as a bit down the road I want to creat a few more jobs running api s that use settings from the web config file.)
web confing strings :
<add name="MyConnectionString" connectionString="Data Source=My-PC\sqlexpress;In
itial Catalog=MyDB;Integrated Security=True" providerName="System.Data.
the initial error statement is that "ConfigurationManager is not Declared. it may be inaccessable due to its protection level"
Dim connStr As String = ConfigurationManager.ConnectionStrings("MyConnectionString").ConnectionString
Dim con As New SqlConnection(connStr)
Dim SQLCmd As New SqlCommand()
SQLCmd.Connection = New SqlConnection(connStr)
SQLCmd.CommandText = "SPUpdateALL"
SQLCmd.CommandType = CommandType.StoredProcedure
