Using a parameter prompt in a SQL Script : LUSENET : SQL Server Database Administration : One Thread

Hi, I would like to create a maintenance script for version 6.5 in which I have a cursor which processes multiple rows. In my fetch loop I would like to prompt the user for an input value which I can put into a local variable. Then I would like to use the local variable to do some processing. Do you know how to do this or have any examples? Thanks, Paul Tribe

You don't do it with Transact SQL alone. Transact SQL is supposed to be "server side" only, your client code (batch files, Visual Basic, Visual C/C++, Delphi, PowerBuilder, etc.) will have to handle the "client side" issues of prompting the user.

Wish I could have been more helpful,
