The SQLCMDPASSWORD environment variable lets you set a default password for the current session. Therefore, passwords do not have to be hard-coded into batch files.

Thanks, I have tested this :

SET SQLCMDUSER=B00A
SET SQLCMDPASSWORD=toto
SET SQLCMDSERVER=SRVSERVER\TEST
SET SQLCMDDBNAME=dbname
sqlcmd  -Q "select count(*) from ATEST" -o d:\test.sql

But, I have this error:
Login failed for user 'B00A'.

Thanks
