T-SQL Bulk Insert

By Ervin Santiago,

Change the @Path and @File variables to match your environment and this will work. Test it out, this saved me huge amount of time in not having to write one code for each of over 200 tables I import using a program I created.

This script allows you to place a file on a drive on your SQL server, and based on the name of that file, truncate and insert clean data.  This works for tab delimited text files only, if you have other delimiters adjust the script.
