Hi,


I have a requirement to connect to remote server and download CAB files to local server. Need to extract the CAB files which contains a CSV file and write the contents to the database table. Sql Server 2005.

What are the best possible solutions for this?

1. Do we need to write code in .NET and call the dll in sql?

2. Write a CLR function for this task?

3. Is there a way to have pure tsql commands to get this done?

Thanks,
Koen Verbeeck

You could use SSIS to do this.
How are you planning to download the file? FTP?

I have a constraint that I cannot use SSIS. Can this be possible with just sql?

This is a bit like being given a nail and told you're not allowed to use a hammer. Why can't you use SSIS?

If you've never worked with SSIS before, I recommend that you search the web for a "getting started" tutorial. That will help you to create a basic package.

Depends on how you want to download the file.
Could be with the FTP task, or with some .NET. (Downloading a file over HTTP the SSIS way)

Extracting could be done with an Execute Process Task (or with some .NET if you want to).
Importing the .csv files can be done with a data flow inside a for each loop.
