How ?
I did succeed to import with bulk insert from ...
but I need to process that data and do the export by rewriting the text file as well.

Thanks.

You can always use DTS and the sp_OA stored procedures to call it...

(there is an example of SP_OA here--scroll down past the xp_cmdshell example http://www.databasejournal.com/features/mssql/article.php/1459181)

It seems there is nothing better (more elegant and simpler) then I accept the answer.
Thank you.

Well, I tried the approach and it seems that something is still not working.
I used this code with query analyzer being connected to the server and database where the source data is present and DTS package is stored in the same server under "ThisServer-DTS-Local packages".

MS-SQL Code:

-- create package
declare @hr int
declare @oPKG int
EXEC @hr = sp_OACreate 'DTS.Package', @oPKG OUT
IF @hr <> 0
BEGIN
    PRINT '***  Create Package object failed'
    EXEC sp_displayoaerrorinfo @oPKG, @hr
    RETURN
END

--Loading the Package:
-- DTSSQLServerStorageFlags :
--- DTSSQLStgFlag_Default = 0
--- DTSSQLStgFlag_UseTrustedConnection = 256
--EXEC @hr = sp_OAMethod @oPKG,
--  'LoadFromSQLServer("localhost","","", 256, , , , "ExportBsnprof",)',
--  NULL
EXEC @hr = sp_OAMethod @oPKG, 'LoadFromSqlServer', NULL,
  @ServerName='10.100.10.30\MPSCENTER', @ServerUsername='usernametext', @ServerPassword='passwordtext',@PackageName='ExportBsnprof', @Flags=256

IF @hr <> 0
BEGIN
    PRINT '***  Load Package failed'
    EXEC sp_displayoaerrorinfo @oPKG, @hr
    RETURN
END

--Executing the Package:
EXEC @hr = sp_OAMethod @oPKG, 'Execute'
IF @hr <> 0
BEGIN
    PRINT '***  Execute failed'
    EXEC sp_displayoaerrorinfo @oPKG , @hr
    RETURN
END
else
    print 'Executed!'

--Cleaning up:
EXEC @hr = sp_OADestroy @oPKG
IF @hr <> 0
BEGIN
    PRINT '***  Destroy Package failed'
    EXEC sp_displayoaerrorinfo @oPKG, @hr
    RETURN
END

..and here is the result grid text:

/*-----------------------------

-- create package
declare @hr int
-----------------------------*/
Executed!
 
What's wrong ?
Thanks.
