Retreiving data from SQL

Using the MSSQL.udf

I asked this question once, but haven't had a chance to reply to my old post so posting a new one instead of bouncing the old post.

I'm trying to retrieve data from my database in Microsoft SQL Server 2014. When I tried the code below; empty message box return and no error approaches.

$Connection = _MSSQL_Con($ServerAddress, $ServerUsername, $ServerPassword, $ServerDBName)
    $Testquery = _MSSQL_Query($Connection, "SELECT User_ID From Banker where Manager like '%Jason%'")
    msgbox(0, "Test", $Testquery)
    exit

Tried and getting error:

"C:\Program Files (x86)\AutoIt3\Include\ADO.au3" (769) : ==> The requested action with this object has failed.:
$oConnection.Open($sConnectionString)
$oConnection^ ERROR

 

Could it possibly be the DSN because I used the default on your example.

I got it to work with this:

 

$sprovider= "sqloledb.1"
$sServer = "Queener\SQLEXPRESS"
$sUser = "sa"
$sPassword = "9999"
$sDatabase = "Bankz"

Local $sConnectionString = 'provider=' & $sprovider & ';SERVER=' & $sServer & ';UID=' & $sUser & ';PWD=' & $sPassword & '; initial catalog=' & $sDatabase

This snippet do not show how you use any functions.
CN string looks ok.

      I have an Autoit-based client GUI that uses a single MS SQL Server database. I have no problem connecting to and executing queries against this database from my AutoIT code, with the below exception:
      One of the database's stored procedures I need to execute requires a parameter that is a table. I've set up the appropriate table_type on the database and everything works fine on the database itself when I execute the stored proc with a table variable for the parameter (no AutoIT involved). The problem is that I can't figure out how to pass a table parameter from AutoIT, assuming it's even possible. The code below shows the two methods I've tried, both methods return a RecordSet object that is at EOF.
      #include <Array.au3> Opt("MustDeclareVars", 0) $sDBSrv = "ITSQL01.domain.com" $sDBName = "INVDEV" $sADOName = "ADODB.Connection" $oSQLConn = ObjCreate($sADOName) $sConnStr = "Driver={SQL Server};Server=" & $sDBSrv & ";Database=" & $sDBName & ";Trusted_Connection=yes;" $oSQLConn.Open ($sConnStr) $rsoFacFriendly = $oSQLConn.Execute("SELECT TOP 5 FriendlyName FROM Facility") If Not $rsoFacFriendly.EOF Then $aFacFriendly = $rsoFacFriendly.GetRows() _ArrayDisplay($aFacFriendly) $rsoSPResults = $oSQLConn.Execute("EXEC spTableParameterPassTest " & $aFacFriendly) Select Case $rsoSPResults.EOF = False MsgBox(0, "sp exec1", "not end of file") $aSPResults = $rsoSPResults.GetRows() _ArrayDisplay($aSPResults) Case IsObj($rsoSPResults) = 0 MsgBox(0, "sp exec1", "rso isn't even an object") Case $rsoSPResults.EOF = True MsgBox(0, "sp exec1", "At end of file") Case Else MsgBox(0, "sp exec1", "Something else happened") EndSelect $rsoSPResults = 0 $rsoSPResults = $oSQLConn.Execute("EXEC spTableParameterPassTest " & $rsoFacFriendly) Select Case $rsoSPResults.EOF = False MsgBox(0, "sp exec2", "not end of file") $aSPResults = $rsoSPResults.GetRows() _ArrayDisplay($aSPResults) Case IsObj($rsoSPResults) = 0 MsgBox(0, "sp exec2", "rso isn't even an object") Case $rsoSPResults.EOF = True MsgBox(0, "sp exec2", "At end of file") Case Else MsgBox(0, "sp exec2", "Something else happened") EndSelect $rsoSPResults = 0 $rsoFacFriendly = 0 $oSQLConn.Close $oSQLConn = 0 Exit

      Good morning guys
      I'd like to know if there is a way to convert a PDF in CSV or, eventually, in TXT, in order to read from it, like a database...
      I have a PDF and I think ( I dind't search a lot on the forum ) with AutoIt, but I'd like work with Excel styles...
      Does anyone know a good program which convert PDF to CSV? 
      PS: the PDF file is 5 MB, and it contains 439 pages...
      Thanks everyone for the help

      romaSQL
      This autoIt UDF is built on the concept of Laravel Query & doctrine.
      RomaSQL provides a new, comfortable and easy to use way for SQL-queries in autoIt.
      Most of the common SQL-queries are supported already and more are coming soon.
      All of your support is much appreciated.
      Connections
      For the connection the object ADODB is used. Therefore the connection string is based on ODBC.
      You can also use OLEDB connection strings or other database connections.
      In order for this to work your add-ons have to be installed in the function: __4ern_SQL_Connection.
      I’d be very glad if you shared your modifications with me.
      Currently supported connections
      -       MySQL (odbc)
      -       Microsoft SQL Server (odbc)
      -       SQLite (odbc)
      -       Microsoft Access (odbc)
      Command reference
      $SQL_connect; establishing connection $SQL_returnType; return a Array or Dictionary ('oDict') Object (Default = Array) $SQL_setDefaultTable; Default Tablename $SQL_setDefaultKey; Default Colmn Key (Default = id) $SQL_debug; if True, show SQL Statment in Console $SQL_get $SQL_update $SQL_delete $SQL_insertInto $SQL_take $SQL_limit $SQL_table $SQL_select $SQL_distinct $SQL_where $SQL_orWhere $SQL_whereBetween $SQL_whereNotBetween $SQL_whereIn $SQL_whereNotIn $SQL_whereNull $SQL_whereNotNull $SQL_having $SQL_orHaving $SQL_havingBetween $SQL_havingNotBetween $SQL_havingIn $SQL_havingNotIn $SQL_havingNull $SQL_havingNotNull $SQL_groupBy $SQL_orderBy  
      Examples
      establishing connection
      ;-----/ ; SQLite Connection ;-----/ $SQL_setDatabase('sqlite') $SQL_connect('C:\project.db') ;-----/ ; Access Connection ; Database, User, Password ;-----/ $SQL_setDatabase('access') $SQL_connect('C:\project.mdb') ;or as Admin $SQL_connect('C:\project.mdb', '4ern', 'root') ;-----/ ; SQLServer Connection ; Database, User, Password, Server, Driver ;-----/ $SQL_setDatabase('sqlserver') $SQL_connect('myDB', '4ern', 'root', 'localhost') ;or with Driver $SQL_connect('myDB', '4ern', 'root', 'localhost', 'SQL Server') ;-----/ ; MySQL Connection ; Database, User, Password, Server, Driver ;-----/ $SQL_setDatabase('mysql') $SQL_connect('myDB', '4ern', 'root', 'localhost') ;or with Driver $SQL_connect('myDB', '4ern', 'root', 'localhost', 'MySQL ODBC 5.2 UNICODE Driver')

      If you need more examples, then tell me exactly what you need.
      I hope you like my UDF and find some use for it.

      I hope my title is good enough.
      I'm using the ADO UDF and I have question regarding editing SQL records with this UDF.
      The owner of the UDF suggested an idea, but maybe there is another trix.

      Hi,
      I want to click a link by the element ID through IEGetObjById.
      <!DOCTYPE html> <html> <body> <button type="button" id="Random-1-ID" onclick="alert('Hello world!')"></button> </body> </html> I intend to click the button with ID"Random-1-ID". But on every refresh the ID changes to next number like "Random-2-ID" "Random-3-ID"
       
      The code i which i wrote for this function is
      #include <IE.au3> #include <MsgBoxConstants.au3> Local $oIE = _IECreate("I:\Documents\1. Work\Automation\My codes\Collections\11. Clicking button by Value and ID\button.html") Local $oDiv = _IEGetObjById($oIE, "Random-1-ID") _IEAction($oDiv, "click") _IELoadWait($oIE) So can anyone help me to alter this code like it clicks for every ID in format "Random-%-ID"
