Generate a Database in Runtime from Script File

Here I post the coding of Creation of Database in Runtime from Script File.


This article may be useful for .NET developers while deploy the project

There may be the need of Database Creation in Runtime according to developer's Project.

The following function will helps the above

private void ExecuteSQLScript(string Filename, System.Data.SqlClient.SqlConnection conn)

System.Data.SqlClient.SqlCommand cmd = new System.Data.SqlClient.SqlCommand();
System.IO.StreamReader Reader = null;

try {
cmd.CommandType = CommandType.Text;
cmd.Connection = conn;

Reader = new System.IO.StreamReader(Filename);
string s = Reader.ReadToEnd();
s = Strings.Replace(s, "GO", "~");
//Replace GO with a "~". Split only works with char
char[] delimiter = "~".ToCharArray();
string[] SQL = s.Split(delimiter);
//Now split the different SQL statements into an array

//Loop through array, executing each statement separately
for (int I = 0; I <= Information.UBound(SQL); I++) {
cmd.CommandText = SQL[I];

Reader = null;
cmd = null;

} catch (Exception ex) {


Finally you get the Database created.

You must get the database script file from SQL SERVER while developing project itself and put it in Deployment Folder(i.e needed file to run software)
