    What database system are you using? SQL Server (Microsoft), MySQL, other? Please edit your question to add a tag for that. Also, what have you tried so far, what did you find in your research and why didn't that work? – Mat Sep 20 '13 at 5:52
  • It's a stored procedure - a procedure stored inside your database system. It has nothing to do with a "store" per se ... – marc_s Sep 20 '13 at 8:31
  • how about this? stackoverflow.com/a/8688446/2186023 and then just let task scheduler take control of that... – DrCopyPaste Sep 20 '13 at 8:45

    And you can not execute anything in SQL without a transaction. ANYTHING is in a transaction - explicit or implicit. – TomTom Sep 20 '13 at 9:13
  • Cross-site duplicate of stackoverflow.com/q/4079363/164901 -- I recently implemented the Service Broker solution for one of our projects here, and I can tell you that it's not exactly newbie-friendly. It is a great solution, though. – Jon Seigel Sep 20 '13 at 13:31

If you are not comfortable using Powershell, then you can go for native service broker functionality.


With SQL Server Express, you could use powershell to execute a stored procedure automatically through Windows scheduler service.

There is a great article that shows how to use Powershell to EXEC stored procedures here:


You can also look at this question that deals with using Powershell:

Is there any collection of PowerShell scripts that help the task of SQL Server maintenance?


Not sure what you mean by "without any transaction". But normally timed scripts / tasks are executed as jobs, through the SQL Server Agent. See here for an example and explanation.


  • @Khan SQL Agent is not available in Express edition. – Kin Shah Sep 20 '13 at 13:03
  • Ah, tags. Good point. :) – Kahn Sep 23 '13 at 4:40
