scripts and stored procedures

hi, thanks a lot richman for helping me with my doubt, i have another question, pls bear with me :) i was wondering if i can package some script files as well as .sql files together in a single commandfile and execute it? or do they have to be in seperate commandfiles?

RE: scripts and stored procedures

hi , you can always write a shell script and embed any sql command in it.It may not be in a single command line.


RE: scripts and stored procedures

but i dont want to embed any commands, i want the script to be seperate from the sql statements but to be stored in a single file. i dont know if that is too far fetched but i would like to know if that can be done.
Thanks a lot for replying.

RE: scripts and stored procedures


  I don't exactly know what you are asking. Given that I will say (again in Unix) that you can have one command file that executes SQL in separate file(s). For example;

Note: DBNAME is your database name

echo "`date` This executes sql_file_1"
dbaccess DBNAME sql_file_1.sql
echo "`date` This executed sql_file_1"
echo "`date` This executes sql_file_2"
dbaccess DBNAME sql_file_2.sql
echo "`date` This executed sql_file_2"

and so on . . .  
This is one command file executing 2 sql files residing outside of it.

Hope this helps!
