Bulk Insert with default value

1 New Member
We have sp's in place that do BULK INSERTS from txt files into the tables. This works fine, however they have asked us to add a field that identifies accounting ctr. The only thing that identifies accounting ctr is the last three letters of the text file being used for the BULK INSERT.

How would you suggest that I do this? Is there a way to add a default value to the .fmt or schema files for the text fields, or in the BULK INSERT statement itself?

Below is part of the process using now:
BULK INSERT DSLTesting..Ext ractCRB
FROM '\\server\c$\DS LReporting\crbc fl.txt'
WITH (FORMATFILE = '\\server\c$\DS LReporting\crb. fmt')
BULK INSERT DSLTesting..Ext ractCRB
FROM '\\server\c$\DS LReporting\crbc tt.txt'
WITH (FORMATFILE = '\\server\c$\DS LReporting\crb. fmt')
BULK INSERT DSLTesting..Ext ractCRB
FROM '\\server\c$\DS LReporting\crbf lg.txt'
WITH (FORMATFILE = '\\server\c$\DS LReporting\crb. fmt')

What I need to add to new field in ExtractCRB (ACCTCTR) is CFL, CTT, FLG during the bulk inserts. This data is not in the .txt file being inserted, only identified by the last three letters of the .txt file being processed. So while it's importing the first file (crbcfl.txt) the value for that field will be 'CFL', then change for the appropriate .txt import throughout the process. Hope this makes sense!

Help?!?

I'm also having problems getting the bulk insert to work. I don't know anything about it except what I've gleened from BOL but I'm not seeming to get anywhere...Hopefully there is some little (or big) problem with my code that someone can point out that may save me some time. TIA CBL

Hi all, We have an application through which we are bulk inserting rows into a view. The definition of the view is such that it selects columns from a table on a remote server. I have added the servers using sp_addlinkedserver on both database servers. When I call the Commit API of oledb I get the following error: Error state: 1, Severity: 19, Server: TST-PROC22, Line#: 1, msg:

Sorry for the piece-by-piece nature of this post, I moved it from a dormant group to this one and it was 3 separate posts in the other group. Anyway... I'm trying to bulk insert a text file of 10 columns into a table with 12. How can I specify which columns to insert to? I think format files are what I'm supposed to use, but I can't figure them out. I've also tried using a view, as was suggested on one of the many websites I've...

I am trying to import a data file, which is tab delimited, using BULK INSERT. I have used BCP to create a format file, since the destination table has around 20 columns, but the data file has only three. Here's the problem: The columns I am trying to import comprise ID (an int identity column), Name (a varchar(255) column and Status (a small int column). The data file contains identity values for the first column, so I am using the...

Hello folks, I am unable to find appropriate documentation on the type promotion of bit-fields when using the generalised comparison operator "<=>".
