OSQL.EXE

This is a MS tool, not sure what installs it. It can apply ".sql" files to databases.

The following example uses this tool via the "RunCmd" command:

;--- Use existing ".SQL" file -----------------------------------------------
<$Sql file="Update.SQL" Command=^"osql.exe" -E -b -n -w512 -S . -d "DatabaseName" -i "{?}"^>

;--- .SQL inline ------------------------------------------------------------
#define MySqlCmd  osql.exe -E -b -n -w512 -S . -d "DatabaseName" -i "{?}"
<$Sql Command=^<$MySqlCmd>^>
   Delete from
       INF_Router
   Where
       ID_Process = 18 and ProcessName = 'GetAllDBUsers'
   GO

   Delete from
       INF_Error
   Where
       ID_Source = 'Operator.GetXMLForAllDBOperators'
   GO
<$/Sql>
<$Sql Command=^<$MySqlCmd>^>
      #include "SqlPart1.SQL"
      #include "SqlPart2.SQL"
<$/Sql>
