Hello,

I want to run a stored procedure using SQL Server Agent.

This stored procedure uses OLE and calls sp_AOCreate.

When testing I used the following:

sp_configure ‘show advanced options’, 1;
 GO
 RECONFIGURE;
 GO
 sp_configure ‘Ole Automation Procedures’, 1;
 GO
 RECONFIGURE;
 GO

Open in new window


to enable  OLE.

How should i run this job under SQL Server Agent?

Does running the above script only work for the current session, or does it apply to all uses in the database?

It applies to instance so if you already ran those commands to enable the OLE automation now create the job to run the  sp_AOCreate as you would for any stored procedure:
DECLARE @object int;
EXEC sp_OACreate 'YourOLEObjHere', @object OUT;

Open in new window

Hello,

I may not have been clear.  I already have a working SP, that i have tested a few times.  So i know that the code is ok.

What i need to know is how enable the OLE option for SQL Server Agent and this job in particular.

You only need to enable it once and will be permanent for the instance but if you only have it enable for running the job and then disable it then you need to put that code in the job and also for disable it after. Like this:
sp_configure ‘show advanced options’, 1;
 GO
 RECONFIGURE;
 GO
 sp_configure ‘Ole Automation Procedures’, 1;
 GO
 RECONFIGURE WITH OVERRIDE;
 GO

---Your code goes here
(...)


sp_configure ‘Ole Automation Procedures’, 0;
GO
RECONFIGURE WITH OVERRIDE;
GO
sp_configure ‘show advanced options’, 0;
GO

Open in new window

Yes, you need to provide a user with sysadmin role so it can enable the OLE automation procedure.
