Thanks for the feedback. But, remember, this was supposed to be done in a job with multiple steps without the use of SSIS. The global variables there do no apply to this particular request because SSIS is not allowed.

RBAR is pronounced ree-bar and is a Modenism for Row-By-Agonizing-Row.
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.
If you think its expensive to hire a professional to do the job, wait until you hire an amateur. -- Red Adair

Hi, I would also need to pass a string from one JobAgent Step to the next (WITHOUT SSIS). In addition, my first step is a PowerShell Command which fetches the string basically. So I also need to know if it's possible to pass a value from a PS-Step to a T-SQL-Step?

Many Thanks in advance!

I'm not aware of any solution other than that originally offered for this chain of posts.... In your case, use PowerShell to run a VBScript with ADO code and insert the string into a single-record table and then use that table as the string source for your T-SQL script.

It would be nice to be able to pass parameters between steps. I'm doing something similar. I would have liked to do the related T-SQL in a separate step. However, I execute the T-SQL in same PSH step.

invoke-sqlcmd -Query $query `
-serverinstance $serverinstance -database 'master' -QueryTimeout 600
