If Script files are properly designed then you can use following
void Execuate(string fileName )


            string sqlConnectionString = "Data Source=(local);Initial Catalog=AdventureWorks;Integrated Security=True";

            FileInfo file = new FileInfofileName ); 

            string script = file.OpenText().ReadToEnd(); 

            SqlConnection conn = new SqlConnection(sqlConnectionString); 

            Server server = new Server(new ServerConnection(conn)); 



Open in new window
