    Question Unanswered: Launch a URL from TSQL code [URGENT]

    Hi Folks,

    I am a SQL Server DBA but I am new to real TSQL programming. I have a question as explained below and any help (soon) will be appreciated.

    I want to invoke a web page from within a TSQL code:
    1) Is it possible to do this?
    2) If yes, how?
    3) Can I call a web page from command prompt?

    Please help me on this - this is quite urgent for me.

    Thanks a lot!

    Astha

    Thanks Enigma

    This really helped and was fine with what I needed. However, when running this from xp_cmdshell - I guess you should use with CMD .

    Thanks again.
