Hello,

I am currently trying to run a Bulk insert and I keep getting the following error.

Bulk_main: The opentable system function on BULK INSERT table failed. Database ID 1, name 'impPRODUCT_SUBS'.

The command is

BULK INSERT [dbo].impPRODUCT_SUBS FROM '\\SQLSERVER\PumpData$\impFile.csv' WITH  ( FIELDTERMINATOR = '|' ,ROWTERMINATOR = '\n' ,FIRSTROW = 1 )

any Ideas.

Thanks for the help

Try doing it from a local drive. If that works, you might need to map a drive letter to the UNC path.

Make sure the 'select into/bulkcopy' option is set on for that db.  To check, use this command:

EXEC sp_dbOption 'yourDbNameHere'


If it's turned off (it doesn't display in the list), you can turn it on using ALTER DATABASE.

CORRECTION:

BOL says to use ALTER DATABASE, but I don't see that as a valid option.

Use sp_dbOption instead:


EXEC sp_dbOption 'yourDbNameHere', 'SELECT INTO/BULKCOPY', 'TRUE'

The account SQL Server runs as probably does not have rights to the share.

Verify with;

master..xp_cmdshell 'dir \\SQLSERVER\PumpData$\impFile.csv'

You are right kselvia access was denied.  How do I go about getting access to the file?

Thank you all for your assistance.  I am going to divy up the points because all of you were actually correct.  

I was able to use the bulk insert if I referred to a local drive.  I have had problems with this before when creating Linked servers.  Does MSSQL 7.0 have problems refering to locations with network addresses?  Any last thoughs on this?  

Again thank you for your help!

Change the SQL Server service to login as a domain account (My computer+Manage+Services+MSSQL Server) and grant that account rights to the share.
