Connect to SQL Server using AutoIT - Need Help - (Moved)

Recommended Posts

Hello All,

I am a complete newbie to AutoIT. I am a SQL Server DBA . I want to connect to SQL Server using AutoIT. I am trying below but nothing works.

https://www.autoitscript.com/forum/topic/149123-sql-this-object-has-failed/

https://www.autoitscript.com/forum/topic/129185-sql-output-more-than-1-row/?tab=comments#comment-897052

Below is what I am trying and I am getting error. Kindly help.

Help needed on below issue and below points:

  1. Do I need to import module , like I do for PowerShell (Import-Module SQLPS) ?
  2. Best source for AutoIT Training. I started liking it.

My Code:

#Region ;===????===

   #include <Date.au3>
   #include <ButtonConstants.au3>
   #include <ComboConstants.au3>
   #include <EditConstants.au3>
   #include <GUIConstantsEx.au3>
   #include <StaticConstants.au3>
   #include <WindowsConstants.au3>
   #include <MsgBoxConstants.au3>
   #include <Crypt.au3>
   #include <File.au3>
   #include <String.au3>

#EndRegion ;===????===

;SQL Credentials
$name=@ComputerName
;MsgBox(0,"Computer Name is",$name)
$UserName='abc'
$ID='$name\$Username'
;Local $ServerAddress = "   INSERT YOUR SQL SERVER IP HERE    "
$ServerName='@Computername\AB'
$ServerPassword='abc123'
$DatabaseName="abcd"

 
; Specify an ini file to write to
$sIni = @ScriptDir &  "\Documents.ini"

; Connect to the database
$conn = ObjCreate( "ADODB.Connection" )
$DSN = "DRIVER={SQL Server};SERVER=$ServerName;DATABASE=$DatabaseName;UID=$ID;PWD=$ServerPassword;"
$conn.Open($DSN)

;Create record set and run query
$rs = ObjCreate("ADODB.RecordSet")
$rs.Open("select top 1 ID from table1", $conn)

If $RS.RecordCount Then
    While Not $RS.EOF
 Consolewrite("<file: >" & $rs.Fields("file").value & @CRLF)
        $RS.MoveNext
    WEnd
EndIf
    
$RS.Close
$conn.?????close

Error:

(46) : ==> The requested action with this object has failed.:

$conn.Open($DSN)

$conn^ ERROR

->12:28:44 AutoIt3.exe ended.rc:1

$DSN = "DRIVER={SQL Server};SERVER=$ServerName;DATABASE=$DatabaseName;UID=$ID;PWD=$ServerPassword;"
; should be:
$DSN = "DRIVER={SQL Server};SERVER=" & $ServerName & ";DATABASE=" & $DatabaseName & ";UID=" & $ID & ";PWD=" & $ServerPassword & ";"

There is no interpolation of variables in a string, unless you use

Opt("ExpandVarStrings)", 1

Also, next time please use the <> icon to paste code.

Moved to the appropriate forum, as the Developer General Discussion forum very clearly states:

General development and scripting discussions. If it's super geeky and you don't know where to put it - it's probably here.


Do not create AutoIt-related topics here, use the AutoIt General Help and Support or AutoIt Technical Discussion forums.

This is my code:

$constrim="DRIVER={SQL Server};SERVER=@Computername\AB;DATABASE=ABC;uid=@ComputerName\User1;pwd=abc!@123;"
$adCN = ObjCreate ("ADODB.Connection") ; <== Create SQL connection
$adCN.Open($constrim) ; <== Connect with required credentials
MsgBox(0,"",$constrim )

if @error Then
    MsgBox(0, "ERROR", "Failed to connect to the database")
    Exit
Else
    MsgBox(0, "Success!", "Connection to database successful!")
EndIf

$sQuery = "select * from table1"

$result = $adCN.Execute($sQuery)
MsgBox(0, "", $result.Fields( "s_username" ).Value)
$adCN.Close ; ==> Close the database

You're making the same mistake again: unless the releving Opt() is issued, there is no interpolation of variables ($something) nor macros (@somethingelse). Else concatenate strings parts with &

Also (again), use the <> icon for posting code.

Finally, you better try to run your program from SciTE with F5 instead of compiling it each time while coding/debugging.
