>"change values"

what is the process that you're trying to achieve...?

what proportion of the database/table does the 1.2m rows consume?
are you afffecting indexes with your changes?
are you changing foreign keys?

Dont know what you mean by this.
>>what proportion of the database/table does the 1.2m rows consume?

I removed all the foreign keys and the only index is the unique key

What i change is not that important, i just want to insert 1 million records using odbc.
Is there a quick way to go about this, maybe changing some settings.
Locking the database or . . .

<<I can't the "change values" is something i have to do in vb>>Then you can build a package in DTS designer wichi allows to run TSQL and VB scripting in undifferiated manner...(even though TSQL is more efficient)

<<Is there no way to do it using odbc>>Yes there are ways but they are not the fastest...If you want ot do this through VB, you may consider calling the BULK INSERT statement in TSQL from VB using ODBC or any provider (better use other provider, ODBC is underoptimized for this kind of operation)...

Check this link for usage

Hope this helps...
