I have looked through the SQL Server questions and answers and I didn't see an answer to this one, if it is out there and I've missed it, please let me know.
Here's the situation:
I write stored procedures and views that are then run as reports (using Crystal) - this is not the problem. Before I am able to release the reports into Production, I need to have the end users run the reports and check them for errors, etc. In a perfect world, I would have a frozen test environment, but I don't live in a perfect world. Every night everything I place into my test environment is wiped out and every morning anything that is in end user testing needs to be re-added. This means that when I come in the first thing I do is run all of the stored procedure, along with a script that unhides the reports in the program we use.
What I'd like to be able to do is to write a package that would find all of the stored procedures in a folder and execute them to add them to the database and, then, run the script that unhides the reports.
I know how to set up an SSIS package to run a stored procedure, but I don't know how to set one up that would run an ever changing list of stored procedures. Is this even possible? And, if it is, how do I go about starting this up?
I should note that while I have more then 10 years of query writing experience, I haven't used VB since VB 6.0 and I very new to the SSIS and SSRS world.
Thanks in advance!
Good old nt shell will do the trick. Run this statement in the folder containing the files.
for %A in (*.sql) DO sqlcmd -i %A -S <myServer> -d <myDb> -E
if you want to include it in a batch file it could look like
@echo off for %%A in (*.sql) DO sqlcmd -i %%A -S <myServer> -d <myDb> -E sqlcmd -i script_to_update_config.sql -S <myServer> -d <myDb> -E
