What is the EXECUTE Command?
The EXECUTE command is a SQL command that allows you to execute multiple queries at once. It takes a single argument - the query string - which can be a single query or multiple queries separated by semicolons.
The EXECUTE command can also be used to execute queries from a file, which can be useful for automating tasks.
