SQL 2005 Bulk Insert

hi

I am using the following Bulk command to insert data from a .CSV file into a SQL table - this is shipment details coming from a customer.

Bulk Insert   SampleSQL
from 'C:\Sampleinput..csv'
with
(
      Fieldterminator = ',' ,
      FIRSTROW = 2,
      rowterminator = '\n'
)

This is working fine when I have data in the Sampleinput.csv file - however if no data is to be sent the user sends in a file and the second row says 'No product Shipped'

I then get this error when I bulk insert

Msg 4832, Level 16, State 1, Line 1
Bulk load: An unexpected end of file was encountered in the data file.
Msg 7399, Level 16, State 1, Line 1
The OLE DB provider "BULK" for linked server "(null)" reported an error. The provider did not give any information about the error.
Msg 7330, Level 16, State 2, Line 1
Cannot fetch a row from OLE DB provider "BULK" for linked server "(null)".

is it possible to put a clause into the Bulk insert that I can put into it that if the second row contains 'No product Shipped'  then I can skip the Bulk insert in my program ?

thanks
Mike

the only option I have seen so far is this:
load the file into another table, with 1 field, and only the 2nd row (using first row and last row indicators)
then, check the contents of that table, and if it does contain the "no product shipped", you don't run the real bulk insert
