This is along the same line as my last question:     2013-11-15 at 17:33:08 ID28295719

In this case, it is one file that is being split into about 380 files.

Each section to be copied out begins with /*Sec and ends with the line before the next /*Sec.

The file should be named Sec-01-01.sql, Sec-01-02.sql, etc.

/*Sec-01-01:Connecting to a Database*/

USE AdventureWorks2008R2;


/*Sec-01-02:Retrieving Specific Columns*/

SELECT  NationalIDNumber,
        LoginID,
        JobTitle
FROM    HumanResources.Employee;


/*Sec-01-03:Retrieving All Columns*/

SELECT  *
FROM    HumanResources.Employee;


/*Sec-01-04:Specifying Rows to Be Returned*/

SELECT  Title,
        FirstName,
        LastName
FROM    Person.Person
WHERE   Title = 'Ms.';

SELECT  Title, 
        FirstName, 
        LastName
FROM  Person.Person 
WHERE Title = 'Ms.' AND 
        LastName = 'Antrim';
