How do you move a comma delimited text file with 3 fields into a SQL 2000 table


Hello All,

I have a comma delimited text file, which I would like to move into a
SQL 2000 table . I created a DTS package in SQL Server and saved it as a
VB.bas . I am writting the code in C# and I though that I might be able
to change a few lines and keep the bulk of the code. However , it seems
that there is a pretty big change in how VB is written and how C#.net is
written. Does anyone have an example of using DTS and C# to move a few
hundred records into a SQL Server table?

Thank You in Advance for Your Help,
Ken

Hi Kenneth,

Are you going to do this more than once? if not just use the DTS of the SQL
server and that's all
if y ou are planning doing it more than once then I think that it's better
if you do it all in code, something like this:

open file
open DB connection
while ( line=file.ReadLine()!=null )
{
string[] fields = line.Split( new char {','} );
CreateSQL Command
Execute SQL Command
}
close DB connection
close file

I think that it's the best solution in your case

Hope this help,
