How do I executing a .SQL file from a specific PC

Hi,

I have a .SQL query that queries a couple of tables and emails the results to an email address. This works fine from within SQL Management Studio 2012.

I have saved this query as a .SQL file and would like to run it from a specific workstation on our domain.

What is the best way to go about this? VBS, BAT, another?

Also what security rights will the end user/Station need in order to run this command and will they also need the Management Tools installed so that they can run SQLCMD.exe?

Many thanks in advance.

If your SQL Server instance IS NOT Express Edition, you can create a job and schedule the execution of the script.
Or else you can create a schedule task and run the script using the sqlcmd utility:
sqlcmd -S ServerName\InstanceName -i PathAndScriptName.sql

Open in new window

You can use SSIS. It will be best suited for you.

User for each file enumerator for .sql files.kept .sql files at your domain nework location.

use execute sql task with connection to execute received file in for each file enumerator.


Thanks,

I'd set up a SQL job and get it to run on a schedule. If you wanted to run it from a specific computer, you'd need to install SQL Express so you could have the correct software on the machine.

What are you hoping to acheive? Is this something that is run adhoc or regularly?

No need to. It will need MSODBC for SQL Server and SQLCmdLnUtil and then schedule the sqlcmd utility as I mentioned above.

Thanks for the suggestions. If I execute from the command line with the command:

sqlcmd -E -S SERVER\MSSQLSERVER -i P:\path\test.sql

I get the following error:

Sqlcmd: Error: Microsoft SQL Server Native Client 11.0 : SQL Server Network Interfaces: Connection string is not valid [87]. .
Sqlcmd: Error: Microsoft SQL Server Native Client 11.0 : Login timeout expired.
Sqlcmd: Error: Microsoft SQL Server Native Client 11.0 : A network-related or instance-specific error has occurred while establishing a connection to SQL Server. Server is not found or not accessible. Check if instance name is correct and i
f SQL Server is configured to allow remote connections. For more information see SQL Server Books Online..

I've followed various guides to make sure firewall is open, tested with it off, have enable the TCP connections. Any ideas?

Hey,
Here only three check required:
1.check server name correctly supplied.if you are pointing to local server.you can write localhost\mssqlserver.
2.file path correction.
3.user has access on sql server.you are using Windows authentication so make sure that user has permission. Or try to run cmd using administrator account.

I tried the same command without the instance name and it worked fine. Thanks for the help all.
