    sqlCommands As StringCollection, _
    executionType As ExecutionTypes _
)
'Usage
Dim instance As Database 
Dim sqlCommands As StringCollection 
Dim executionType As ExecutionTypes

    StringCollection^ sqlCommands, 
    ExecutionTypes executionType

member ExecuteNonQuery : 
        sqlCommands:StringCollection *

Parameters

Remarks

The StringCollection value of the sqlCommands parameter makes it possible to send a Transact-SQL script with multiple commands.

The executionType parameter is used to filter the types of commands that are run. For example, you can specify that the execution continue after encountering an error with the ContinueOnError option.

VB

'Connect to the local, default instance of SQL Server.
Dim srv As Server

Dim db As Database
db = srv.Databases("AdventureWorks2012")

'Run a Transact-SQL command on the database.
db.ExecuteNonQuery("CHECKPOINT")

'Run a Transact-SQL command with results and display.
Dim ds As DataSet
ds = db.ExecuteWithResults( _
"SELECT * FROM Person.Address")
Dim t As DataTable
Dim r As DataRow
Dim c As DataColumn
For Each t In ds.Tables
   For Each r In t.Rows
      For Each c In r.Table.Columns
          Console.WriteLine( _
          c.ColumnName + " = " + r(c).ToString)
      Next
   Next
Next

PowerShell

$srv = new-Object Microsoft.SqlServer.Management.Smo.Server("(local)")
$db = New-Object Microsoft.SqlServer.Management.Smo.Database
$db = $srv.Databases.Item("AdventureWorks2012")
$db.ExecuteNonQuery("CHECKPOINT")
$ds = $db.ExecuteWithResults("SELECT * FROM Person.Address")

{
   Foreach ($r in $t.Rows)
   {
      Foreach ($c in $t.Columns)
