Hi all, I just need to automate a script as far as possible, at the moment I'm using Ctrl H to replace the database name and .bak with the current value, but I'd like to just pass in a couple of params at the start, and just run. Hopefully I'll be able to create a sproc and do the same. Here's what I've got so far, I need to keep the 'DCM' string and add on the db name from the variable...

Exec master..xp_cmdshell 'MKDIR "U:\Archives\YourDatabaseNameHere\DATA"'

Restore Database YourDatabaseNameHere
Disk = 'YourBackupFilePathHere\YourDatabaseNameHere.BAK'

MOVE 'DCMYourDatabaseNameHere' TO 'U:\Archives\YourDatabaseNameHere\DATA\YourDatabaseNameHere.mdf',
MOVE 'DCMYourDatabaseNameHere_log' TO 'W:\Archives\Log\YourDatabaseNameHere_log.ldf',
Exec master..xp_cmdshell ' DEL /Q YourBackupFilePathHere\YourDatabaseNameHere.BAK'
