Hi,
Can someone give me some idea how to perform batch insert in sql2005 by using t-sql ? My query below doesnt run in batch if I try with "top" ? will that work ? the date_time below contain aroun 30 millions of records, that is why I plan to run the insert per 100000 batches

      INSERT into  DBTestA.dbo.LoggingA
      SELECT *
      FROM DBProdA.dbo.LoggingA with (nolock)  where date_time>'2010-12-01 23:59:59.999'
 
     and date_time>'2010-12-31 23:59:59.999'

You may want to look at SSIS to handle this type of functionality.

As a side-note, if you're trying to insert just Dec 2010, the last line should be <= rather than >

It may, but I won't be much help there as I don't have any experience with it.

is there a unique key there?  if you order by key, then you can select the top 10000 with a key greater than the greatest key in the DBTestA.dbo.LoggingA table

using the UniqueKey as my UniqueKey I would suggest the folowing


INSERT into  DBTestA.dbo.LoggingA
      SELECT top 100000 *
      FROM DBProdA.dbo.LoggingA
     with (nolock)  
     where date_time>'2010-12-01 23:59:59.999'
     and date_time>'2010-12-31 23:59:59.999'
     and UniqueKey not in (select UniqueKey from  DBTestA.dbo.LoggingA )

Every Run You insert a Batch of 100000 Records That are not already in the Logging Tabel
