How do I include carriage return/line feeds in my SQL strings?

I currently have code in this format :

strCallTypeUpdate = "declare @Number as char(26) " + "\r\n ";   (and so on...)

But this doesn't work.  Is there an equivalent to vbCrLf in C#?

You should use Environment.NewLine!


Jesus Christ! I was unaware of all the smileys available here at tek-tips.

Your code should work!
Environment.NewLine is exactly "\r\n";
The followings are equivalent in C#:


(char)13 + (char)10;  


cmd.CommandText = "CREATE PROCEDURE getProducts " + Environment.NewLine +
                    "@CatID Int " + Environment.NewLine +
                    "AS " + Environment.NewLine +
                    "SELECT ID, Desc, Price, Stock " +
                    "FROM NWA.dbo.Products " +
                    "WHERE ID = @CatID"

But Environment.NewLine isolates you from the platform.  If you run your code under Mono, it will produce the correct newline character sequence for your OS.
