How do I import a 4K text file which is non-delimited into an SQL Express 2005 table?
The table has been created in SQL Express 2005 and matches the text file by field element length and type of data.
Thanks,
Paul

Great article, however, I am using SQL EXPRESS and SSIS is not included.
My other problem is that I do not have delimited files - they are fixed length and I do not see where the SSIS would work.
Thanks,
Paul

I could not use the bcp utility.  I am a very basic user.
