How to get execution time of a sql query in a text file?
Updated 29-Sep-10 1:39am

TimeSpan Duration; 
DateTime StartTime = DateTime.Now
'Call the database here and execute your SQL statement
Duration = DateTime.Now.Subtract(StartTime)
Console.WriteLine(String.Format("Query took {0} seconds", Duration.TotalSeconds.ToString()))

Firstly, I would ask you to post the question bit clearly. What is the purpose of recording the execution time? Is it to be recorded by the application to keep log or do you want to check the performance and execution time of few slow running queries.

Assuming, you need it to check the performance, I would suggest you to use SQL Profiler, with that you would get detailed execution plan. Showplan will allow you to get the desired result.
