not sure if it is resource issue, but it just does not open the sql file in ssms. is there a tool to break into 10 pieces so i can run them one by one? (the code inside has to be customized.. so i have to open it change it then copy and run it one by one).. any options?

If it is a text-file there are splitters
powershell script to split per #rows

PortletPaul,

it is a *.sql file.. yes all sql script inside.. but needs to be customized before running.

jogos, will check out now if powershell can break .sql... hope it won't lose any lines in the break..  thanks for the option.

"so i have to open it change it then copy and run it one by one"

A file splitter cannot be guaranteed to produce viable scripts
i.e they "cut" the file at arbitrary points (usually based on wanted piece size)

So I'm not confident about this approach.

How was the file generated in the first place?
 Can you re-generate it perhaps, and if so, address your needs before it gets into the 1Gb file?

Hope you succeed!

A splitter does indeed not garantee coherent end/beginning of scripts. But while the spripts has to be changed this is becomes the responsabillity of the changer.
