Chapter 19. SQL Server Tools > The OSQL Program

The OSQL Program

The OSQL program is included with SQL Server and MSDE. It lets you execute database commands from DOS. OSQL is used, for example, to execute SQL scripts within batch files.

Note

SQL Server 7 and SQL Server 2000 also include the ISQL program. ISQL is OSQL’s predecessor and it supports SQL Server 6.5 functions only. We recommend using OSQL exclusively. Both programs are identical to operate.
