Introduction

To create SQL Database using asp.net is quite difficult, Here I am writing
how to create SQL Database and how to Run the SQL Script File using asp.net.
To Run this Database Creation wizard, you have to Enter the Required input
and finally you will get Database created.

Here you can see two Screenshot. The first one is showing the SQL Server
Configuration that includes the ( SQL Server Name, Database Name,
SQL User ID and SQL Server Password).

And Second screen is showing the Virtual Path of SQL Script file.

Background

Web Based SQL Database Creation Wizard is looking Odd Requirements.
But Currently I am developing one Web Application, and my Requirement
was to Create New SQL Database and run the SQL Script File that
includes Tables, View and Stored Procedures. After Database Creation,
I have to work with that Database. So I found a lot of internet,
but I didn't find any good article or resources for this, so finally
I have created this Wizard application for those who had the same
requirements like this.

Using the code

First of all you required following namespace.

Imports Microsoft.SqlServer
Imports Microsoft.SqlServer.Management.Smo
Imports Microsoft.SqlServer.Management.Common.ConnectionManager

And with the help of Classes, I have Created one DatabaseCreator.vb Class,
that contains the methods to Create SQL Database and Execute SQL Script Files.

To Create SQL Database, you have to Create the object of this class and
call required methods.


EX:
Dim objDBCreate as New DatabaseCreator
And call CreateSQLDb() Function with required Paramters, This function will
return true , if database will successfully created, otherwise it will return False.

objDBCreate.CreateSQLDb("SqlServerName", "DBName", "SQLUserID", "SQLPWD")

now after Create Database, on Next Step, we Execute the SQL Script File
by calling this Method: ExecuteSQLScript()

it takes two parameters, One is SQL Script File Path, and the Path
Should be Physical path, so you can get path using
Dim sqlpath As String = Server.MapPath("Virtual Path of SQL Script")And Second one is Connection String of Newly Created database.

Here check out little bit code. To Get full souce of Code, please download from Top link.

//
//This Code will create SQL Db 
//create the database procedure goes here.

objDBCreate = New DatabaseCreator
If objDBCreate.CreateSQLDb(txtServer.Text, txtDBName.Text, txtUserID.Text, _
    txtPassword.Text) = True Then
    ViewState.Add("ConStr", ConnStr)
    Return True
Else
    Return False
End If

//
// This Code will Run the SQL Script File
//

Dim sqlpath As String = Server.MapPath(txtSQLPath.Text)
objDBCreate = New DatabaseCreator
If objDBCreate.ExecuteSQLScript(sqlpath, StrCon) Then
  CreateMessageAlert(Me.Page, "SQL Script Execute Successfully..", "Run")
Else
  CreateMessageAlert(Me.Page, "There is an error into script file", "notrun")
End If

// 

Now, hope you get code to create SQLDB using DatabaseCreator.vb Class.

First of all thank you for providing this code.
 
We downloaded the code and tried to run it on our server, but we are having some difficulties.
 
We are trying to use your code using vbscript and asp pages. We don't know where to put the code and how to provide the values for the variables it needs to run on our server. We were not able to get the forms to appear on the screen.
 
We would appreciate any advice and direction you can provide.
 
Thank you.
