One Project / Multiple Executibles

P: n/a
Hi,

I create many tiny vb.net console applications that I call from the command prompt in sql server. Usually these are very tiny, and involve just one method (I'm doing things that a stored procedure can't do). The only way I know how to do this is to create a VS Project for each executible, that is quickly becomming a pain, expecially when you through in source safe, and the fact that other people need to be able to access this code.

Is there a way I can configure Visual Studio to allow me to compile multiple executibles out of one Project?

Thanks,
--Michael

Raterus,
Instead of multiple executables, why not define a single executable that
takes a parameter? (post if you need help with parameters to executables).
Also you may want to start reviewing VS.NET 2005 & SQL Server 2005, as they
will support creating stored procedures in .NET.

For information on VS.NET 2005 (aka Whidbey, due out later in 2005) see
http://lab.msdn.microsoft.com/vs2005/.

Hope this helps
Jay

I guess I had the same idea, right after I posted this question. I'm remaking all of these little applications into one executible, and I just pass a command line paramter to indicate to the program what to do.

Thanks!
