    Is there some magic that pulls in the file?


    Not really.... just do a BULK INSERT from the file.  I haven't had the time to post it but you should have no issue.  Make a temporarry target table should have a RowNum columns as and identity and a 500 character "DataFromFile" column.  Then just change the code to read from that Temp table instead of the VALUES() clause.

    RBAR is pronounced "ree-bar" and is a "Modenism" for Row-By-Agonizing-Row.
    First step towards the paradigm shift of writing Set Based code:
    ________Stop thinking about what you want to do to a ROW... think, instead, of what you want to do to a COLUMN.
    "Change is inevitable... change for the better is not".
