    Hello,

    How can I run the dbcc command?

    Can it be done from the cmd prompt?

    Sorry from my ignorance but I'm very new to SQL and any help would be appreciated.

    Thanks!

    Asher. 😀

    Yes, but you need to do it through "OSQL". Lookup "OSQL" in Books Online for full details about usage.

    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.

    When you put the right degree of spin on it, the number 3|8 is also a glyph that describes the nature of a DBAs job. 😉

    or use one of the SQL gui tools (Query analyser, enterprise manager. sql server management studio, maintenance plans). exact too, depends on version of SQL u r using.

    Again see BOL
