The SQLCLI can import commands from a batch file and process them in the background; see Executing Commands.
The individual commands are in individual rows and separated by a separator.
You can specify the separator used in the batch file between two commands using the -c <separator> call option. The default value is //
Do not enter additional spaces in the batch file. The following two separators, for example, are not identical for the database system:
CREATE TABLE city
(zip CHAR (5) KEY CONSTRAINT zip BETWEEN '10000' AND '99999',
name CHAR(20) NOT NULL,
state CHAR(2) NOT NULL)
CREATE TABLE customer
(cno FIXED (4) KEY CONSTRAINT cno BETWEEN 1 AND 9999,
title CHAR (7) CONSTRAINT title IN ('Mr', 'Mrs', 'Company'),
firstname CHAR (10) ,
name CHAR (10) NOT NULL,
zip CHAR (5) CONSTRAINT zip BETWEEN '10000' AND '99999',
address CHAR (25) NOT NULL,
FOREIGN KEY (zip) REFERENCES city ON DELETE RESTRICT)
In this example, AUTOCOMMIT mode is deactivated. To ensure that the SQLCLI executes the SQL statements immediately after the batch file has been imported, the batch file must contain an explicit COMMIT.
Default value of the database system: activated AUTOCOMMIT mode
