Connecting to multiple OLE DB servers with a loop.

Hello all,

I am trying to run the same load script on multiple database servers without having several OLE connection strings with the same load statement copied / pasted.  This of course makes changes to the load script difficult to manage.  I would like to store the server names in a external file (excel?), and then execute the load using a server name variable in the connection string with a loop for each server name listed.  To keep the results seperate for each server, I will store the results by appending the server name variable to the file qvd file name.

Any ideas on how to pull off the loop?

Thanks in advance.

This is an example for different databases in multiple subfolders, but the logic should also worked in your case:

for each varPath in 'folder1', 'folder2'

     ODBC CONNECT32 TO [Microsoft Access-Datenbank;DBQ=D:\$(varPath)\Datenbank.mdb];
