Subject problem using sqlcmd with ant
Date Fri, 27 Jun 2008 09:06:02 GMT

we're trying to execute a bunch of sql commands on MS SQL Server 2000
with ant and sqlcmd -- sqlcmd because ant's built-in sql task doesn't
allow for trusted connections, or am I wrong?.

<project name="exp"	basedir=".">
	<property name="DBName" value="SV3"/>
	<property name="ServerName" value="DB-NTSERVER"/>
	<property name="OutputDirectory" value="."/>
	<property name="InputDirectory" value="."/>
	<target name="sql.exp">
		<exec executable="sqlcmd" error="error.log" output="output.log">
			<arg value="-S ${ServerName}"/>
			<arg value="-d ${DBName}"/>
			<arg value="-o &quot;${OutputDirectory}&quot;"/>
			<arg value="-i &quot;${InputDirectory}\script.sql&quot;"/>
			<arg value="-E"/><!-- use trusted connection -->

P:\> more error.log
Sqlcmd: '-S DB-NTSERVER': Unknown Option. Enter '-?' for help.

We tried running the command line on its own, and it worked OK (see
below).  However, as soon as we execute the above ant script, even
though ant executes successfully, but we get a return result of 1, and
the above error message in the error output file.

P:\>Sqlcmd -E -S DB-NTSERVER -d SV3 -i "script.sql"
Msg 2705, Level 16, State 4, Server PUB-NTSERVER, Line 6
Column names in each table must be unique. Column name 'OrderNumber'
in table 'Product' is specified more than once.

BTW, This message is expected and shows us that the connection to the
database was successful.

Thanks for any help you may give.
