    BOOKS ONLINE... BCP. Bulk Copy Program.
    One warning: After making your *.fmt file it is sometimes easier to change all data types to SQLCHAR. BCP will still let you put non-char values into appropriate field structures. If using SQL 7 you should read about DTS Data Transformation Service.
    (MS cert hugh?)

    That is a bull.... you CAN NOT pass SQL test if you don't know how to do this. I can bet on that.

    SQL Server can&#39;nt recognize cobol flat files. You will have to convert cobol flat files to sequential format with column delimeters and end-of-row <CR> which gives you a text data file. I am sure there are some tools available for this kind of conversion. Also make sure there are no non-printable characters in the text data file.

    Then you can use BCP or DTS to export into SQL.

    IRI NextForm has an Eclipse GUI to map data in COBOL and other flat file formats into SQL Server and other RDBs.
