Hello,

I have created the table that match exactly the header of the CSV file but when I  run the bulk insert query it returns ( 0 row(s) afftected)
CREATE TABLE [dbo].[TCountry](
	[CountryCode] [varchar](3) NULL,
	[IsValid] [char](1) NULL,
	[CountryDesignation] [varchar](150) NULL,
	[LCC] [char](1) NULL,
	[RegionCode] [nchar](10) NULL,
	[User] [varchar](50) NULL,
	[UpdateDateTime] [varchar](50) NULL
) ON [PRIMARY]

bulk insert TCountry from 'C:\COUNTRY.csv'
with ( FIELDTERMINATOR =';', FIRSTROW = 2 )

Open in new window

COUNTRY.csv

How did you create the CSV file?
It might need a ROWTERMINATOR also.

Try with the ROWTERMINATOR:
bulk insert TCountry from 'C:\temp\COUNTRY.csv'
with ( FIELDTERMINATOR =';', ROWTERMINATOR='0x0a',FIRSTROW = 2)

Your problem stems from your CSV file
.
Change your CSV file into a TXT file , and it will work fine
Make sure the file at the location "C:\"  is on the SQL Server !
..........
bulk insert TCountry from 'C:\COUNTRY.txt'
with ( FIELDTERMINATOR =';', FIRSTROW = 2 )
