I have a Microsoft SQL server that is setup, and inside it is a job. Inside the job is a bunch of lines of transact sql statements.
I would like to be able to start the job from the command prompt. Moreover, I do not want to have to create new files or modify anything that is existing. I just want to be able to have it set up so that a new user who installs the server and all of the job on their machine fresh, can just punch in the command to run the job.
I know I can copy the transact sql statements from the job, and run them through the command prompt, but that would be a poor way to do it, because if the statements in the job were ever modified, with this task being automated, the command prompt statements would be out of date.
So I just need a way to start the existing job from the command prompt. Is this possible? Maybe with OSQL?
