How to capture messagesHi All, I am wondering if there is a way to trap messages from a SQL Query into a table of some sort. For example, I am running DBCC CHECKDB and would like to know if i can capture this output into a table: DBCC results for ‘TableA’.
There are 121 rows in 7 pages for object ‘ShowContig’.
DBCC execution completed. If DBCC printed error messages, contact your system administrator. Since its not a result set, im not sure how to trap it and using this won’t work either: create table output (description text)
declare @cmd varchar (255)
set @cmd=’dbcc checktable (”TableA”)’ insert into output
exec (@cmd) Thanks in advance.
Take a look the following article: http://www.sql-server-performance.com/tp_automatic_reindexing.asp You can find how Tom capture DBCC. Luis Martin

Yup i know i can capture showcontig since it has the TABRESULTS option but DBCC CHECKTABLE does not. I guess my question is specific to CHECKTABLE since it doesnt output the result as a resultset but as a message – i would like to know how to capture this message besides using a logfile. thanks!
Thanks to a buddy, found a solution:
exec master..xp_cmdshell ‘OSQL -E -dDBA -SServerANamed1 -Q"dbcc checktable(”[dbo].[TableA]”)"’ Will return results as a resultset which i can capture in a temp table.
