Transact-SQL batches

In Transact-SQL, a batch is a set of SQL statements submitted together and executed as a group, one after the other. Batches can be stored in SQL script files. Interactive SQL can be used to execute batches interactively.

The control statements used in procedures can also be used in batches. SQL Anywhere supports the use of control statements in batches and the Transact-SQL-like use of non-delimited groups of statements terminated with a GO statement to signify the end of a batch.

For batches stored in SQL script files, Interactive SQL supports the use of parameters in these files.
