     BCP is a method to transfer large amounts of data from a flat file into SQL Server VERY quickly. BCP is a functionality of the low-level DBLib environment. Unfortunately the modern data components (ADO, DAO, RDO) don't support bulk copy.

The only way to get to BCP in the past was to either use the BCP.exe tool shipped with SQL Server, or to write some serious low level BCP type stuff.

I wrote slpBCP.dll as a wrapper for VBSQL.ocx and DBLib. It will allow you the developer to reference the DLL in your project, Create a reference to the object, set a few properties, call a routine... and bulk copy data into your SQL server.

Note: Due to the size or complexity of this submission, the author has submitted it as a .zip file to shorten your download time. Afterdownloading it, you will need a program like Winzip to decompress it.Virus note:All files are scanned once-a-day by Planet Source Code for viruses, but new viruses come out every day, so no prevention program can catch 100% of them. For your own safety, please:
  1. Re-scan downloaded files using your personal virus checker before using it.
  2. NEVER, EVER run compiled files (.exe's, .ocx's, .dll's etc.)--only run source code.
  3. Scan the source code with Minnow's Project Scanner

If you don't have a virus scanner, you can get one at many places on the net
