Hi Professionals


I am trying to write a variable with column headings to a text file but it does not seem to be working and I am not sure where I am going wrong.

It creates a file called file.txtsoftwaremanufacturer and inside the file is the rest of the parameter 'productname','productversion','licensable'

here is my code


alter procedure [dbo].[extractnewheadings]
@importedquery nvarchar(1000)
as
begin
Declare @sCmd varchar(256)
--set @importedquery = REPLACE(@importedquery,',', ''',''' );
--print @importedquery
SET @sCmd = 'echo > C:\inetpub\wwwroot\cleansed\file.txt' + @importedquery + ''
exec master..xp_cmdshell @sCmd, no_output

end

exec extractnewheadings 'softwaremanufacturer,productname,productversion,licensable'

Try this for your command...

SET @sCmd = 'echo ' + @importedquery + ' > "C:\inetpub\wwwroot\cleansed\file.txt"'




Also, you should check any such concatenated variables for "DOS Injection" just like you would for "SQL Injection".

First step towards the paradigm shift of writing Set Based code:
Stop thinking about what you want to do to a row... think, instead, of what you want to do to a column.
Although they tell us that they want it real bad, our primary goal is to ensure that we dont actually give it to them that way.
Although change is inevitable, change for the better is not.
Just because you can do something in PowerShell, doesnt mean you should. Wink
