A SQL stored procedure update that you must run to install all Project Server updates

To make sure that all the fixes that this update contains are applied correctly on Project Server 2002, follow these steps:
  1. Run the self-extracting package to extract the files to a temporary folder that you select.
  2. For each SQL query file, such as Websps.sql, that is extracted to the temporary folder that you selected in step 1, use one of the following procedures:
    • If you are using Microsoft SQL Server as the back end for Project Server 2002, follow these steps:
      1. On the main SQL server in your configuration, run SQL Query Analyzer.
      2. In the Database box, click the ProjectServer database.
      3. On the File menu, click Open, locate the SQL query file in the temporary folder that you selected in step 1, and then open the file.
      4. On the Query menu, click Execute.
      5. When the query has finished executing, you can quit SQL Query Analyzer.
    • If you are using SQL Server Desktop Engine (also known as MSDE 2000) as the back end for Project Server 2002, follow these steps:
      1. On the main SQL server in your configuration, click Start, click Run, type osql -i tempdir\queryfile.sql -U sa in the Open box, and then click OK.

        For example, if you extracted the files in step 1 to the C:\Temp folder, and the name of the query file is Websps.sql, type osql -i c:\temp\websps.sql -U sa.

        This command connects you to the local default instance of MSDE 2000 by using the System Administrator (SA) account. You can also run the osql command with another user name that has SA permissions on the server.
      2. At the Password prompt, type the password for the account that you used in step a, and then press ENTER. The SQL query file that you specified in step a runs.
