ExecuteWithResultsAndMessages2 Method

This feature will be removed in a future version of Microsoft SQL Server. Avoid using this feature in new development work, and plan to modify applications that currently use this feature.

The ExecuteWithResultsAndMessages2 method executes a Transact-SQL command batch returning batch result sets in a QueryResults object and capturing messages raised as part of command batch execution.

. ExecuteWithResultsAndMessages2(
, [ Length ] ) asQueryResults


Expression that evaluates to an object in the Applies To list.


String that specifies a Transact-SQL or provider-specific command batch.


String used to return message output.


Optional. A long integer that indicates the statement batch length.

Not applicable

A QueryResults object that contains command batch results. The method fills the string specified by the Messages argument with message returns, if any are generated by batch execution.

For Microsoft SQL Server, error severity indicates the degree of an error condition. Some errors are severe enough to terminate statement execution prematurely. Any error with a severity of 10 or higher is returned to the SQL Distributed Management Objects (SQL-DMO) application through normal error handling.

Minor errors, SQL Server errors with a severity of less than 10, indicate that statement execution succeeded, but that success was conditional. These are called Success-with-information errors. Some Transact-SQL statements, such as the PRINT statement, do not generate result sets, but use messages for their return value.

The ExecuteWithResultsAndMessages method implements command batch execution for a SQL-DMO application, allowing the application to capture success-with-information errors or other information transmitted as messages.

Visual Basic applications should call ExecuteWithResultsAndMessages2 instead of ExecuteWithResultsAndMessages because the Length parameter is not optional in the original ExecuteWithResultsAndMessages method. ExecuteWithResultsAndMessages2 is not available to C++ applications, which should call ExecuteWithResultsAndMessages.

ExecuteWithResultsAndMessages2 can be used with SQL Server 7.0 and SQL Server 2000 or later.
