Collect data from table and write to a file

Collect data from table and write to a file

Collect data from table and write to a file

I need to do a vbscript or a VB that connect to a database, execute a sql statement and send the output to a file. I have the done something so far, but I can't finish it. Can someone help me?

Dim cmd
Dim rs
Dim params
Dim param
Dim ArgObj, sunumber

Set ArgObj = WScript.Arguments
set cn=createobject("ADODB.Connection")
set cmd=createobject("ADODB.Command")
set rs=createobject("ADODB.Recordset")

Set WshShell = WScript.CreateObject("WScript.Shell")
WshShell.Run("%comspec% /c <Console Command>")

cn.Provider = "SQLOLEDB"
cn.Open "Data Source = xpto", "User", "User"

Set cmd.ActiveConnection = cn
cmd.CommandText = "SELECT (*) FROM CtrlBalcao"

Hi uadm26,

I'm not a big script guy, but I've done lots of ADO in VB/VBA.  You don't need the command stuff, all you need to do is open the recordset:


rs.Open "Select * From CtrBalcao", cn, adOpenStatic, adLockReadOnly

From here just walk the recordset:



While Not rs.EOF
  'Write out your data here:
  ' Move to the next record:

Forgot to mention, you may need to change the above code just a bit for script, I haven't done much script at all, the above is for VB/VBA.
