I am trying to call a stored procedure  named spRunRefresh from php.  
The code is:
<?php
osql -E -d Iris -S Gamay-srv1 -Q "Exec spRunRefresh ;
?>

I receive the following error:
Parse error: syntax error, unexpected T_STRING in C:\Inetpub\wwwroot\CallFile2.php on line 2

the code osql -E -d Iris -S Gamay-srv1 -Q "Exec spRunRefresh ;

works from a bat file.

Any ideas

osql is a command line tool, and not php syntax.

so, you want to run it with the system command?!
http://php.net/manual/en/function.system.php
<?php
system 'osql -E -d Iris -S Gamay-srv1 -Q "Exec spRunRefresh;" ';
?> 

Open in new window


however, you normally would not do that from php ...
you would want to connect with either the mssql extension or with odbc, ado etc ...
mssql extensions: http://php.net/manual/en/book.mssql.php
odbc: http://php.net/manual/en/book.uodbc.php
using adodb: http://phplens.com/lens/adodb/docs-adodb.htm

Just like angellll said - it is not the thing you want to do (not very safe)

Thank you all for you help.  I will study up and see what I can do.  I may try to do this through a batch file.
