README How to bulk copy data using IRowsetFastLoad (OLE DB)

[This topic is pre-release documentation and is subject to change in future releases. Blank topics are included as placeholders.]

This sample works only with SQL Server 2005 and SQL Server 2008. It will not work with any version of SQL Server earlier than SQL Server 2005.
Illustrates the use of IRowsetFastLoad for bulk copying of the records into a table. This sample is not supported on IA64.


For more information on this sample, see How to: Bulk Copy Data Using IRowsetFastLoad (OLE DB) in Books Online.


This sample uses Visual C++.


Before running this sample, make sure the following software is installed:
  • SQL Server or SQL Server Express including Database Engine. You can download SQL Server Express from the Microsoft Download Center.
  • The AdventureWorks database which is included with SQL Server, and is also available at the Microsoft SQL Server Developer Center.
  • The SQL Server Database Engine samples. These samples are included with SQL Server. You can download the latest version of the samples at the Microsoft SQL Server Developer Center.
  • .NET Framework SDK 2.0 or Microsoft Visual Studio 2005. You can obtain .NET Framework SDK free of charge. See Installing the .NET Framework SDK.

Building the Sample

  • This sample connects to your computer's default SQL Server instance (on some Windows operating systems, you will need to change (localhost) or (local) to the name of your SQL Server instance). To connect to a named instance, change this line WCHAR g_strTestLOC[100] = L"localhost"; to WCHAR g_strTestLOC[100] = L"machine_name\\named_instance"; . By default, SQL Server Express installs to a named instance.
  • Make sure your INCLUDE environment variable includes the directory that contains sqlncli.h.
  • The sample requires you to execute the following stored procedure, which you can find in the sample's scripts directory: * USE AdventureWorks

    IF EXISTS (SELECT name FROM sysobjects WHERE name = 'IRFLTable')

    CREATE TABLE IRFLTable (col_vchar varchar(30)) * In SQL Server Management Studio, load and execute the Scripts\setup.sql script or execute the following command in a Command Prompt window: * sqlcmd -E -I -i Scripts\setup.sql *
    • If you are using Visual Studio, load the BulkCopyRecords.sln file and build it.
    • If you are using MSBuild.exe, invoke MSBuild.exe at a command prompt, passing it the BulkCopyRecords.sln file: * MSBuild BulkCopyRecords.sln *

    Running the Sample

    From Visual Studio, invoke Start Without Debugging (CTRL+F5).
    If you built with MSBuild.exe, invoke BulkCopyRecords.exe.
