VBA Equivalent for DoCMD.TransferText

  • Please note:  I know this isn't a .Net forum, but just curious if there is something I call that exists in SQL Server from my .Net application to do the same without the need to write my own routine.

    I have been asked to rewrite a VBA tool into a C# application, but came across a line of code that I am not sure how to do the same thing in C# as it is done in VBA.

    Here is the code currently being used in VBA:

    DoCmd.TransferText acExportDelim, "TEMP_Tracker Export Specification", "TEMP_Tracker", "\\BulkInsert\UtilityNotes.txt", True

    Is there an equivalent SQL Server routine I can use from .Net to perform the same routine?

    Any help on this is greatly appreciated 🙂

  • I don't know VBA but, looking up the command, I'm thinking that BCP.EXE using the "query out" option might do it for you (and it's nasty fast).  I don't know how to call such things from C# because I don't ever use C#.
