                    'Making empty value as null
                    For i As Integer = 0 To fieldData.Length - 1
                        If fieldData(i) = "" Then

You think that will work out with my code below.

 GetDataTabletFromCSVFile(Server.MapPath("~/csvfile"+ ".CSV"))


        'Protected GridView1 As Global.System.Web.UI.WebControls.GridView

        Private Shared Function GetDataTabletFromCSVFile(csv_file_path As String) As DataTable
            Dim csvData As New DataTable()
            '  Try
            Using csvReader As New TextFieldParser(csv_file_path)
                csvReader.SetDelimiters(New String() {","})
                csvReader.HasFieldsEnclosedInQuotes = True
                Dim colFields As String() = csvReader.ReadFields()
                For Each column As String In colFields
                    Dim datecolumn As New DataColumn(column)
                    datecolumn.AllowDBNull = True
                    csvData.Columns.Add(datecolumn)
                Next
                While Not csvReader.EndOfData
                    Dim fieldData As String() = csvReader.ReadFields()
                    'Making empty value as null
                    For i As Integer = 0 To fieldData.Length - 1
                        If fieldData(i) = "" Then
                            fieldData(i) = Nothing
                        End If
                    Next
                    csvData.Rows.Add(fieldData)

                    For Each TextFileTableDataRow As DataRow In csvData.Rows

Ok I am using it but I am getting
The ConnectionString property has not been initialized.

  Dim myConnection As SqlClient.SqlConnection = New SqlClient.SqlConnection(HttpContext.Current.Application.Get("connection"))

Open in new window


  Using bulkCopy As SqlBulkCopy = New SqlBulkCopy(myConnection)
                        myConnection.Open()
                        If csvData.Rows.Count > 0 Then
                            bulkCopy.DestinationTableName = "dbo.table"
                            '   bulkCopy.BulkCopyTimeout = ("")
                            bulkCopy.BatchSize = 10000
                            bulkCopy.WriteToServer(csvData)

                        End If

                    End Using
                    myConnection.Close()

Sorry for the delay..... Basically it's telling you that it's looking for the connection string to the SQL table that you're going to send your data to.

Here's a sample code of where I was inserting into SQL table.  Your connection statement is the same, I just always preferred more of a breakdown so I could see what was going on.

Notice the connection string is "MyConnection" and then I define that connection within the web.config along with the credentials to connect with it.

(VB.NET)
Dim sConn As Data.SqlClient.SqlConnection
Dim sComm As Data.SqlClient.SqlCommand
Dim sAdapt As Data.SqlClient.SqlDataAdapter

sConn = New Data.SqlClient.SqlConnection(System.Configuration.ConfigurationManager.ConnectionStrings("MyConnection").ConnectionString)

sComm = New Data.SqlClient.SqlCommand("INSERT INTO YourTable(Fieldname1, Fieldname2, Fieldname3) Values ('" & TextBox1.Text & "','" & TextBox2.Text & "','" & TextBox3.Text & "')", sConn)

sAdapt = New Data.SqlClient.SqlDataAdapter(sComm)

(Web.Config File - Defines "My Connection")
<connectionStrings>
<clear/>
<add name="MyConnection" connectionString="server=YourSrvr;database=YourDB;UID=UserID;PWD=Pass" providerName="System.Data.SqlClient"/>
</connectionStrings>
thanks with some modifications.
