This post is the 22:nd, post about Microsoft SQL Server R Services. This journey started about a year ago when I thought it would be a good idea to write a couple of blog posts about, what then went under the name of, Microsoft SQL Server 2016 R Services. Never in my wildest fantasies did I think I would write over 20 posts.

NOTE: Since the introduction of Microsoft SQL Server R Services, it has been renamed to Microsoft SQL Server Machine Learning Services.

This series began with a discussion about how to install Microsoft SQL Server R Services and continued with the internals of how it works internally in SQL Server and the launchpad service. Throughout the series, we have used sp_execute_external_script when investigating what goes on. So, I thought that having a couple of posts looking at sp_execute_external_script would be a good way to finish this series off, and this post is the first of two about sp_execute_external_script.
