Can AutoIT send queries to a Database?

Recommended Posts

My script needs to retrieve data (strings) from a database. My company's technician says that AutoIT can't do that, but I have the impression that AutoITX would be able to interact with the DB's language.

Unfortunately I can't provide you with more information because the project is in the planning stage, but I've developed a concept in AutoIT that I'd like to build up from, thought it'll be dropped if I can't prove that AutoIT is able to send queries to this DB and retrieve data from it.

Can anybody help?

It seems that they'll be using PostgreSQL...

Well. You are the proud owner of a need to adapt one of the existing UDFs for Postgres. My suggestion, Start w/ the basic ability to login to a database, (ensure that you have OBDC installed) , add the ability to pass a raw sql command, then expand as necessary.

... I look forward to seeing your results.

Reading the help file before you post... Not only will it make you look smarter, it will make you smarter.

Oh my, I wish I had the time and knowledge required to investigate any further...

My interest in programming started when I saw first-hand how primitive are the methods used in my company. Now I'm addicted to AutoIT, VBA and Python, but time's scarce to toy too much with them and I only make progress slowly...

Thanks anyway!
