Hi,
i am running following SQL at ssms which goes OK but I am not able to save output in a file. I wish to run this SQL and spool results in single file. This does work under oracle using sqlplus.

I think I can use sqlCmd .
Does it provide any formatting options?
How to pass a t-sql stmt file "a.sql" to run at sqlcmd?

a.sql-----
exec sp_spaceused test1
exec sp_spaceused test2
exec sp_spaceused test3

sqlcmd: The newest, fanciest command-line interface to SQL Server.
isql : The older, DB-Library (native SQL Server protocol) way of command-line communication with SQL Server.
osql : The older, ODBC-based way of command-line communication with SQL Server.
