I’m executing code using SQLCMD from a batch file . The code points to a sql file and there is also an output file.
SQLCMD -E -S MYSERVER\INST1 -i “setup_job_entry.sql” -o “setup_job_entry.log”
But I noticed that if the actual SQLCMD returns an error , for example , if I’m connecting to an server which doesn’t exist this error message will appear in the output file – but there will not be an ERROR number , which would allow me to trap and return an appropriate message
There is a way and Jack shows us how.
