I have a tab delimited file that I need to  import into SQL via VB.  It will be generally 10-12 thousand records.  I have been reading about sqlbulkcopy but have not found any good code examples.  Can any suggest methods to import a large file like this efficiently as well as provide coding examples?

Here is the SqlBulkCopy example:

Imports System
Imports System.Data
Imports System.Data.SqlClient

Public Class BulkInsert

  Public Shared Sub InsertDataTable(ByVal connectionString As String, ByVal table As DataTable)
    Dim copier As New SqlBulkCopy(connectionString)
    copier.DestinationTableName = table.TableName
  End Sub

End Class
