Hi all

Does anybody have an idea if you can use raw files to update records in a table using SQL server 2005
I have trawled the internet but with no avail. I tried to using a TSQL update statement.
I have about 5000 records to update and need it to be fast.
Can use a OLE DB Source and OLE DB Command. but it is to slow.
Example code would be much appreciated.

Can you give some more details regarding your question? Are you trying to read from RAW files as a source or do you want to use them to speed up things?

In SSIS, you can use the Raw File Source and the Raw File Destination.

Yes I want to use the RAW file as a source and then update records in the database (tried using TSQL update but not sure about how to get the RAW data into it) It needs to be fast!!

" Yes I want to use the RAW file as a source and then update records in the database (tried using TSQL update but not sure about how to get the RAW data into it) It needs to be fast!! "

--Here you have to be more specific in terms of what kind of updates u want to perform in database. Based on that there are several transformations available in SSIS for ex., derived column, conversion etc. and all of them can read data from ur RAW file source.

Also, reading data from ur RAW file source is relatively much faster than flat, oledb sources because it does not require parsing and translation of data.

Here is a sample of the data I am trying to update

"21,""U"",8,100012714788,1,2,2001-04-18,""ZW"",,367903.00,403212.00,1,4250,2001-04-18,,2008-04-07,2001-04-18,"""",""00BWGG"","""",,,"""""

The U stands for an update, there are other codes for Insert (I) and Delete (D) but I have split these off using a conational split

The only field that wont change will be the "100012714788" all the rest could potentially change

One of the quickest way to do updates in bulk manner is to delete the rows from the destination table first then add the updates in the same way as you would the the inserts
