Join Simon Allardice for an in-depth discussion in this video Importing CSV files into SQL Server, part of SQL Server 2008 Essential Training.
If the data that you want to import is in comma separated values or indeed in…anything that's just a regular text delimited file--…in fact here I've got to some very straightforward values, very similar to the…last time, but they are separated with the vertical bar.…I can also bring this into SQL Server although the way of doing it does have…quite a few different options than doing it with Excel.…So I'm going to go ahead and open up my Import and Export Data Wizard. …I'm going to use the 32-bit one.…
The source I'm going to pick here is Flat File Source.…And when I select that, not surprisingly it's going to ask me to browse to that file, …which is currently saved as a CSV on my desktop.…And once I do that we have a very different screen for determining what that data is.…If I click on the Columns section on the left, it will take a look and think yes,…this column delimiter seems to be a vertical bar, and if you select that, this is…what the date is going to look like and it looks pretty good.…
