sqlclr stored procedure to call an api


  • I am working on making a call from sql server to pass the address or zip in order to get the Latitude & Longitude for that location. To accomplish this task I may have to write sqlclr procedure which is something I have never done. How do I approach this to accomplish my task.

    Thanks in advance..........

  • If you have the right edition of Visual Studio (Workgroup or Enterprise edition, I think), you have database projects. Here's a walkthrough.

    If you don't have that version, start here: You can also build these in Visual Studio as "Class Library" projects, you'll need to supply your own DDL to catalog the assembly and procedure.

  • In addition, there are sample geocoder projects on CodePlex. Either search for "Geocode" on Codeplex (there are a few), or start with this sample SQLCLR one:

  • Thanks very much for your response Bob. I am using VS 2010 Professional Edition. Can I call an api in sql server using any of the system stored procedures or extended stored procedures?

  • I don't know what you mean by "call an API in SQL Server". You can write a SQLCLR stored procedure to call whatever .NET-based API you'd like, subject to the limitations and rules in the Books Online.
