Hi Simon,

I tried using this nice code in SQL Server 2005 but it fails with the message "Only functions and extended stored procedures can be executed from within a function".

I was wondering how this could be updated to run in SQL Server 2005...I am not a DBA myself:-)

Thanks!

Hi Simon,

I tried using this nice code in SQL Server 2005 but it fails with the message "Only functions and extended stored procedures can be executed from within a function".



Same question: Is there a way to check file existence from a function? I have a table containing filenames and wish to perform a set based query to list missing files.

I really hope I don't have to resort to using a cursor loop for this!

Thanks in advance.
