Loading DBF file to MS SQL 2000

Posted on 2006-03-30

I would like to use the DTS utility to import the data coming from a dbf codebase file (source) into MS SQL 2000 database (destination).

What my problem is that there are some records from the dbf has a delete flag turned on, when I do the import, everything was inserted into SQL database except for those marked delete ones. What can I do? Any suggestion of the ODBC driver?

If all records can be imported into SQL 2000 with a column specified whether this record are deleted or not, then it would be perfect. Thanks.

I can send you the dbf file for your investigation. Thanks.

    from on (1) to off(0) and it will include them all.  Not exactly what you want, but closer.
