I have SQL Server 2012.  I want to import about 350+ CSV files located in a local folder of SQL 2012 server.  I only need a one-time import at this time.  I am new to SQL Server 2012, but have researched my problem extensively with BCP, Bulk Insert, OPENROWSET, and SSIS. Please assist with the easiest way possible. Thank you.

Shove them in the same folder, then in SSIS use a For Each File Loop to loop through all files to set the source of a data pump, with the destination being the SQL table.

That assumes that the files are exactly the same schema, and they are inserting into the same SQL table.

Do you have a good tutorial to follow using Microsoft Visual Studio 2012 Shell (Integrated) SQL Server Data Tools   11.1.41025.0?
