I do want to do a bulk insert into database, like 2000 records at a time. Can I pass a datatable to stored procedure and then insert them into destination table all at a time.

I normally do it with XML documents...

1. Pass your data as an xmal document(table)...
2. Parse it to a temp table.
3. insert/update or whatever...

Will post you a link soon...

Are you doing this load from another application or through TSQL?  This is mainly a design question.  If this is being done over and over again you may want to do some type of bulk load (see http://www.sqlteam.com/item.asp?ItemID=3207).  Other wise ADO (in .NET) will handle this insert pretty easily without a major datbase performance impact.

Hope this helps.
