Hi Dave,

creating SQL scripts is just a matter of building the right string
for the job at hand. If nobody comes up with a smarter idea, you
could write this string to a file and pass it to the SQLServer command
line utility sqlcmd.

The fun starts when you want to work on the output of sqlcmd. You'll
notice such niceties as cutting off of the data at 1 MB for no good
reason at all.

I'd be very happy if somebody found an ODBC connector gathering
dust in the corner.
