I have many Drop and Create Table/ Views statements that I need to automate and log into a file when I run the script. Basically, I need to create a Log file for that will Log all the Drop and Create tables statements and will give me a status of the operation after the SQL statements have been run.

Any help on this issue is appreciated.

I suggest you add a DDL Database Trigger and that will log into a table all the operations you need on DROP/CREATE/ALTER any SQL object in that database.

http://technet.microsoft.com/en-us/library/ms186406(v=sql.105).aspx

"SQL Server DDL Triggers to Track All Database Changes"
http://www.mssqltips.com/sqlservertip/2085/sql-server-ddl-triggers-to-track-all-database-changes/


I also suggest you right click your database in SSMS and check the standard report "Schema change history" for that same matter

"I need to create a log file when I run my DDL statements"

The DDL database trigger example I posted above has ALL the code for you and it populates a log table already from where you can create your "log files" whatever those would be. To be honest I'm not sure what easier and better solution than this to LOG all DDL changes you need?

"The approach is to take a snapshot of the current objects in the database, and then log all DDL changes from that point forward. With a well-managed log, you could easily see the state of an object at any point in time (assuming, of course, the objects are not encrypted)."
