Hi,

I am looking for some powershell code to add a record to a SQL database.
Preferbly I don't want to use the SQL insert statement to messy with the formatting.

So is there a way I can do this with a ADO recordset or datatable etc?

Thanks,

PS. Adding another question for a sql update btw. :)

you general ADO question is this one (where I posted):

the powershell technique is like this (except that you don't use the .AddNew, obviously):
http://blogs.technet.com/b/heyscriptingguy/archive/2008/01/15/how-can-i-add-a-record-to-a-database-using-windows-powershell.aspx
$adOpenKeyset = 3
$adLockOptimistic = 3

$objConnection = New-Object -com "ADODB.Connection"
$objRecordSet = New-Object -com "ADODB.Recordset"

$objConnection.Open("<your connection string")

$objRecordset.Open("Select * From yourtable WHere keyfield = xxx", $objConnection,$adOpenKeyset ,$adLockOptimistic)

$objRecordSet.Fields.Item("ComputerName").Value = "atl-ws-001"
$objRecordSet.Fields.Item("SerialNumber").Value = "192ATG43R"
$objRecordSet.Update()

$objRecordSet.Close()
$objConnection.Close()

Open in new window
