Connecting Python to SQL Server

Connect to Server, Create Table, Query Data

Install the package:

$ pip install pymssql

import pymssql

SERVER = "servername"
USER = "username"
PASSWORD = "password"
DATABASE = "dbname"

connection = pymssql.connect(server=SERVER, user=USER, 
                password=PASSWORD, database=DATABASE)

cursor = connection.cursor() # to access field as dictionary use cursor(as_dict=True)
cursor.execute("SELECT TOP 1 * FROM TableName")
row = cursor.fetchone()

######## CREATE TABLE ########
cursor.execute("""
CREATE TABLE posts (
    post_id INT PRIMARY KEY NOT NULL,
    message TEXT,
    publish_date DATETIME
)
""")

######## INSERT DATA IN TABLE ########
cursor.execute("""
    INSERT INTO posts VALUES(1, "Hey There", "11.23.2016")
""")
# commit your work to database
connection.commit()

######## ITERATE THROUGH RESULTS  ########
cursor.execute("SELECT TOP 10 * FROM posts ORDER BY publish_date DESC")
for row in cursor:
    print("Message: " + row[1] + " | " + "Date: " + row[2])
    # if you pass as_dict=True to cursor
    # print(row["message"])

connection.close()
