I've created a stored procedure that updates my database. The thing is that it doesn't need to run at a regular interval. It should only run when it's called specifically.

It's easy enough to fire up SQL Server Management studio & type up EXEC ...., but I want to give someone the ability to do it without giving them access Management Studio. Is there an out of the box solution or am I stuck paying someone to make a custom script that connects to my DB & calls the command?

You can use SQLCMD. Documentation and examples here:

Thanks guys. I forgot all about powershell! By the looks of the basic tutorial, that's exactly what I need.
