Calling An External Program


Is there a stored proc or a function I can call from Query Analyzer to execute another .EXE and return when it's finished?

I'd like something like
SET @RET = sp_CallEXE('c:mypathmyprogram.exe myparameters')

(Except for the name of the function, there should be something that does this right? I mean, DTS does it already so it must be referring to a function or a SP.)

I want an answer to so that I can validate that everything went well (hence the @RET variable)

Xp_cmdshell - Need To Execute External Program Asynchonous


i need to start an external program ( from within a trigger. via xp_cmdshell everything works fine except that the execution of the trigger waits for the vb-program to finish.

now i tried a workaround with a "starter application" which only calls the program (asynchronous) an ends.

this works fine from a dos prompt (command prompt returns immediately and task is running). but when i call the starter app from the trigger with xp_cmdshell, the behavior is the same as before: execution does not continue until the task ends.

any other ideas that could solve my problem? submitting an agent-job is not fine for me because i need to supply parameters to the called program and maybe i need call it more than once at the same time.

Get Password To Start A Program

I have this Visual Basic program that if you are already logged into the application, the program get the username and password automatically to run the program. If the user runs the program not logged into the application, the program prompts username and password.

I need to know the T-SQL statement that will get the username and password when the user is already logged into the application. Basically I have the username part but the password keeps coming back as NULL and will not allow program to run.

Please help.

Uninstalled Program, Now SQL Won't Start

I have recently had issues opening a program. I called their tech guy and he said that since my SQL is stopped, their program won't open. He asked if I had uninstalled anything lately. I had uninstalled the Kodak Easy Share within the last couple of weeks. We use Windows XP. I have tried opening the Service Manger and when I click the refresh or start buttons nothing happens.

Please someone help me restart my SQL.

It Takes A Long Time To Insert The First Record Each Time When The Program Start

I am using VS2005 (VB) to develop a PPC WM5.0 Program. And I am using SQLCE 3.0. My PPC Hardware is in 400MHz.

The question is when the program try to insert the first record into sdf database after each time the program started. It takes a long time. Does anyone know why and how can I fix it?

I will load the whole database into a dataset when the program start and do all the "Insert", "Update", "Delete" in this dataset and fill it into database after each action.

        sda = New SqlCeDataAdapter(SQL, cn) 'SQL = Select * From Table
        scb = New SqlCeCommandBuilder(sda) 

I check the sda.update(), it takes about 0.08s for filling one record into database normally. But:

1. Start the PPC Program

2. Load DB into dataset

3. Create a ONE new record in dataset

4. Fill back to DB

When I take this four steps everytime, the filling time is almost 1s or even more!

Actually, 0.08s is just a normal case. Sometimes, it still takes over 1s to filling back a dataset which only inserted one record when the program is running. (Even all inserted records are exactly the same in data jsut different in the integer key)

 However, when I give up the dataset and using the following code:

            Dim cmd As New SqlCeCommand(SQL, cn) ' I have build the insert SQL before (Insert Into Table values(XXXXXXXXXXXXXXX All field)

           cmd.CommandType = CommandType.Text
            StartTime = Environment.TickCount

 I found that it is still the same that the first inserted record takes more time, but just about 0.2s. And the normal insert time is around 0.02s. It is 4 times faster!!!

Error 9004 On Start. SQl Server Fails To Start

It looks to me like the master database is corrupt. Can anyone tell me if that's a fair assessment and if there is a quick recovery from this one.

Get With The Program

It is very interesting to me that most people in this group can't do simpleSQL. Are you viewing MySQL as a simple file system?As long as you do that,you willnot understand SQL in any dialect. So from now on:When you have a question about SQL. post the table structures. Uh, "WithCreate".Post some sample data in the form of INSERTS.Regards,Rich--The journey is the reward.

Is It This Job Can Program In Trigger?

I've have following table,

tblHIT - this table will reveive record every minutes
Date | Time | Main_ID | Hit
3/1/2006 | 100 | 200 | 8700
4/14/2008 | 100 | 200 | 4500
4/14/2008 | 100 | 201 | 8700
4/14/2008 | 200 | 200 | 3500
4/14/2008 | 300 | 201 | 7700

I've also 1 job in SQL Server Agent will execute STORED PROCEDURE and will filter 7 days record before from current date and insert it into tblHIT_7days. tblHIT_7days shown as follow
Date | Time | Main_ID | Hit
3/7/2008 | 100 | 200 | 8700
4/13/2008 | 100 | 200 | 4500
4/13/2008 | 100 | 201 | 8700
4/13/2008 | 200 | 200 | 3500
4/13/2008 | 300 | 201 | 7700

I've plan to create TRIGGER. This TRIGGER will insert the appropriate record from tblHIT into tblHIT_7days and also delete a appropriate record in tblHIT_7days. This INSERT and DELETE transaction depend on current date.

Is it possible, TRIGGER can do this?

Using Sql Server In DB Program

I am about to build a program that will require the use of DB. In the pass I used Access as my back end, but this time I would like to use Sql Server. I just have a few questions before I begin.

1. After deploying and installing my program, do I need to have sql server installed on users system or can the DB file exist on its own and just use ADO.NET to access the file? (As I done in the pass to access my Access mdb file)

2. If I can deploy a sql file -- can it be done with Sql Server Express?

3. If it can't be done, what db program should I use?

Program Locking Up While Using Rda

On some occasions when trying to send data back to the server, the program will lock up for up to 30 minutes. The code below is the rda data transfer process and the function IsConnected() determines whether there is a connection.

If Not MainFrm.IsConnected Then
rda.ConnectionManager = True
End If
If MainFrm.IsConnected Then
Dim sCon As String = "Provider=SQLOLEDB;Data Source=;Initial
Catalog=OurDb;User ID=UserId;Password=pwd"
rda.InternetUrl = ""
rda.LocalConnectionString = "Data Source=Program FilesSysdata.sdf"
For i As Integer = 0 To RecCount - 1
rda.SubmitSql(UpdateRec(i, 0), sCon)
Catch Ex As SqlCeException
ErrTxt = Ex.ToString
End Try

Public Shared Function IsConnected() As Boolean
Dim request As HttpWebRequest
Dim response As HttpWebResponse
request = CType(WebRequest.Create(""), HttpWebRequest)
response = CType(request.GetResponse(), HttpWebResponse)
If response.StatusCode = HttpStatusCode.OK Then
Return True
Return False
End If
Catch Ex As WebException
Return False
End Try
End Function

There are rda properties which determine a timeout. How can I use these to stop my program from locking up if the signal is weak?

Store Program EXE In Table?

Hello, Folks. I am not sure if this can be done (and a brief search ofthis group didn't yield any results that I thought would do the trick)but if it can be done it would make my life easier so here goes.First, what I am trying to accomplish is to make a program I've writtenautomatically update itself if there is a newer version on the network.Second, my application runs on one or more computers at manygeographically separated locations. I have remote control softwarethat enables me to remotely update and troubleshoot my application butI since I have to pay for this access per computer I don't have theability to control each and every computer that runs my software (forthose clients with more than one computer that uses my software).Third, my application uses as its data storage system MSDE 2000 (withcurrent service pack).Fourth, my users are not technical people and I want to rely on them aslittle as possible.Fifth, not all of the workstations are Internet enabled or connected,so having the application check a website for an update is notfeasible.Finally, to bring those different pieces together, what I want to beable to do is connect to and control the "server" (the computer withMSDE installed on it) and store in the database what the currentversion number is along with the current program files. Then, when theapplication launches, it will check that stored version number againstit's own version number to determine if there is a newer versionavailable. If there is a newer version available I want it to updateitself (that workstation) by retrieving that newer software from thedatabase. I want to avoid file sharing because it's problematic andsince I already have SQL Server (MSDE) running on the network I'd liketo use that.Is there some way that I can either a) store my program files (one EXEapproximately 5MB in size and one OCX approximately 250KB in size) in atable to be retrieved by my application so it can update itself or b) away to get SQL Server (MSDE) to read a file locally on the server andreturn it to my application just like it would any recordset so I couldjust tell it where the file was and let it read it from whicheverfolder it's stored in?I've looked at making a column of datatype Binary, and perhaps that'sthe way I'll go (re-creating the field to the correct size each time Ido an update or perhaps making it really big so I don't have to worryabout the size). But I thought I'd ask around first since this isn'tanything I know much about.Thank you for your time and help.--HC
