SQL Server: some links on BULK IMPORT format files

Posted by jpluimers on 2013/12/04

From my link archive:

Note that for importing decimal/numeric columns, you have two options:

  1. Cast through FLOAT using a FORMAT file
  2. Use OpenRowSet with VARCHAR, then CAST afterwards
    Weird rounding for decimal while doing a bulk insert from a CSV.

Some more links on this:
