Porblem with SQLBulkCopy when Column is Primary Key with UniqueIdentifier

I am trying to insert data into a table with a primary key having default value of newsequentialid()  using SqlBulkCopy.

Prior to insert the data by examining DataReader object I see that all PK values are Guid.Empty(represented by 0000-000…) .

However when I try insert the data the SQlBulkCopy  tries to  insert PK with Guid.Empty values and I get unique identifier conflicts for PK column.

Is there a way to exclude Pk from insert or tell SQLBulkCopy not insert data in column with UniqueIdentifier property?   I have tried all SqlBulkCopyOptions Enumerations with no success.

Hi!
try if you are inserting Id or primary key value
SqlBulkCopy bulkCopy = new SqlBulkCopy(connectionString, SqlBulkCopyOptions.KeepIdentity)

Else
And also try to have ColumnMapping and remove the Primary Key Mapping

Thanks!
