Greetings all,

I have a table called tblFiling.

Initially, we were sent a huge .txt file which we successfully imported into our 2005 SQL Server database.

The problem we have now is that after that initial huge import, we get daily downloads of .txt files.

Our responsibility is to add this daily imports to the tblFiling table.

I was wondering if I could get some useful pointers on how to accomplish this.

Basically, we want to set up a process where we extract contents of the .txt file that is downloaded to our directory on daily basis and add to data that already exists on the tblFiling tabl. infact a manual process will suffice.

I just need help from anyone who has done something similar.

A sample script will be very hepful and truly appreciated.

Thanks a lot
