Hi and Merry Christmas,

I would like to request your expert and knowledge in regards entering multiple values into a MS visual studio database table.


1 I have created the database
2 I have created the tables
3 and windows forms for updating the database data.

but im having problems with getting a large amount of values i need to insert into the tables and one by one is not gonna do it.

could you please let me know what other way i could enter the data in a faster in batches type of process.


all i know is Insert Into database.tablename (Columns, names) Values ("one","two","three"),
Go 


I thank you in advanced for reading the post and if you got any ideas thank you so much,



Andrew

assuming its a local sql database,

download and install the sql data tools: http://msdn.microsoft.com/en-us/data/hh297027
use the import/export wizard to import from excel/CSV/etc http://technet.microsoft.com/en-us/library/ms140052.aspx
