SQL Server scripts in VB 6

SQL Server scripts in VB 6

Question:
I have several SQL Server scripts that either CREATE or RUN stored procedures in a SQL Server database. I need to run these files (which I have in .txt or .sql format) from my VB application. Can you tell me how? I think there’s a way to do it using cursors.

Answer:
This sounds like a perfect opportunity to load those scripts into your database as stored procedures. You can then use the Execute method of the database or ADO Connection object to run them. The other way would be to use the Shell function to call the ISQLW program to run the script, assuming ISQLW can be run from a command line.
