Hello,

I search how I can modify a txt file containing :

ALTER TABLE [dbo].[T_tbl]  WITH CHECK ADD  CONSTRAINT [FK_T_tbl_t_test] FOREIGN KEY([proc])
REFERENCES [T_test] ([Id])
GO

Open in new window


by

ALTER TABLE [dbo].[T_tbl]  WITH CHECK ADD  CONSTRAINT [FK_T_tbl_t_test] FOREIGN KEY([proc])
REFERENCES [T_test] ([Id])
NOT FOR REPLICATION
GO

Open in new window


Thanks

Regards

This should do the trick, including keeping the EOL characters currently used:
$Sql = [IO.File]::ReadAllText("C:\Temp\test.sql")
$Sql -replace "(?s)($([regex]::Escape('REFERENCES [T_test] ([Id])')))(\r?\n)(GO)", '$1$2NOT FOR REPLICATION$2$3'

Even shorter:
$Sql = [IO.File]::ReadAllText("C:\Temp\test.sql")
$Sql -replace '(?s)(ALTER TABLE .*?)(\r?\n)(GO)', '$1$2NOT FOR REPLICATION$2$3'

Thanks but syntax error is generated for alter table check constraint.
I add option NOT FOR REPLICATION only for ALTER TABLE ... FOREIGN KEY ...
I try :
-replace '(?s)(ALTER TABLE .*? FOREIGN KEY .*?)(\r?\n)(GO)', '$1$2NOT FOR REPLICATION$2$3'
But the replace isn't done.

That didn't work because you have a space between "KEY" and ".*?", while the script is "KEY([proc])", so there's no match.
$Sql = [IO.File]::ReadAllText("C:\Temp\test.sql")
$Sql -replace '(?s)(ALTER TABLE .*? FOREIGN KEY.*?)(\r?\n)(GO)', '$1$2NOT FOR REPLICATION$2$3'
