I have a stored procedure that creates a file/folder, I need to set permission on that folder.
I have searched and searched and can't figure out how to do that, is there a way using tsql.

There is no native T-SQL command that can change permissions on a folder on the OS. You can use xp_cmdshell to run system commands which in turn would do that. This page has info and examples on xp_cmdshell: http://msdn.microsoft.com/en-us/library/ms175046.aspx

By default xp_cmdshell is disabled. If you need to enable it see here: http://msdn.microsoft.com/en-us/library/ms190693.aspx

Thanks, I was afraid there was not direct way to do it. I know how to copy, move, create using xp_cmdshell but I dont' know how to set security on the folder. Suggestions?

I have not done that from a command line. This MSDN page might help: http://support.microsoft.com/kb/288292
