I am trying to update the local database by running a txt file with several DML statement e.g. delete, update, and insert. I need to use Visual Basic to connect to the database and execute the script (or the contents of the script). How do I go about it?

I have put together this but I need to know how to use the 'strsql' and 'cmDB.Execute' to update and execute the file. Thanks for all your help.

' Update the (local) xxxx Database by running "xxx_UpdateDB.txt"

Private Sub cmdUpdateLocalxxx_Click()
Dim cnConnection As ADODB.Connection
Dim cmDB As ADODB.Command
Set cnConnection = CreateObject("ADODB.Connection")
Set cmDB = New ADODB.Command
cnConnection.ConnectionString = "Provider=sqloledb;Data Source='(local)';Initial Catalog='xxx';User Id='xx'; password='xxxxxx"

' strsql = ""

cnConnection.Open
'Dim cnConnection As ADODB.Connection
cmDB.CommandType = adCmdFile

cmDB.CommandText = strsql
cmDB.CommandType = adCmdStoredProc

'cmDB.Execute




End Sub
