And you want whole HTML file to be dumped to the SQL Column?

I think you must have got the code to read the content of the file... All you need to do is remove HTML tags from the content. Here is the function which will help you get plain text from the HTML string...

private string GetPlainTextFromHtml(string htmlString)
{
    string htmlTagPattern = "<.*?>";
    var regexCss = new Regex("(\\<script(.+?)\\</script\\>)|(\\<style(.+?)\\</style\\>)", RegexOptions.Singleline | RegexOptions.IgnoreCase);
    htmlString = regexCss.Replace(htmlString, string.Empty);
    htmlString = Regex.Replace(htmlString, htmlTagPattern, string.Empty);
    htmlString = Regex.Replace(htmlString, @"^\s+$[\r\n]*", "", RegexOptions.Multiline);
    htmlString = htmlString.Replace("&nbsp;", string.Empty);

    return htmlString;
}

I don't want to remove html tags from from the html page. I want to save as it is into
Sql Data Table column. I don't want the whole html page. I want to save the body tag contents in the sql column(data type nvarchar(max))
Any suggestions please.


The following query inserting the HTML page content into Sql DataTable
 when the page_Details column type declared as (XML(.),null(The content
 inside the body tags in .aspx page was saved as xml file)
 Ex:<PageContents>

     - <![CDATA[
 <div>
 </div>

  ]]>

   </PageContents>
 Now the page_Details column type declared as (nvarchar(max). The below
 query is not inserting data.The column type can not be changed. How to
 insert the html data there.

 UPDATE [Content_Site].[dbo].t_Page_List

 SET Page_Details =(

 SELECT * FROM OPENROWSET(

    BULK 'C:\PagedETAILS_Xml\Page1content.xml’,

            SINGLE_BLOB

 ) AS x

 )

 WHERE PageID = 1

 GO

Hi,

I'm not proficient in my SQL but you can do something like this-

DECLARE @xml NVARCHAR(MAX)

SET @xml = SELECT * FROM OPENROWSET(
   BULK 'C:\SampleFolder\SampleData3.txt',
           SINGLE_BLOB
) AS x


UPDATE [Content_Site].[dbo].t_Page_List
SET Page_Details = @xml
WHERE PageID = 1

You might need to cast the x to nvarchar.
