I have a number of .sql files which I have to run in order to apply changes made by other developers on an SQL Server 2005 database.
The files are named according to the following pattern:
0001 - abc.sql 0002 - abcef.sql 0003 - abc.sql ...
Is there a way to run all of them in one go?
Create a .BAT file with the following command:
for %%G in (*.sql) do sqlcmd /S servername /d databaseName -E -i"%%G" pause
If you need to provide username and passsword
for %%G in (*.sql) do sqlcmd /S servername /d databaseName -U username -P password -i"%%G"
Note that the “-E” is not needed when user/password is provided
Place this .BAT file in the directory from which you want the .SQL files to be executed, double click the .BAT file and you are done!
