SQL Azure BCP makes it easier for database admins and developers, to do bulk copy loads into SQL Azure. This bcp replacement allows you to define each load using an easily XML file.
It´s developed using C#.When is useful this tool?
Sometimes, the database administrator or database developer can´t use SSIS and must rely on standard bcp.exe or bulk insert T-SQL... this tool provides an easily configurable way to load data between SQL Server instances (including SQL Server Azure).About Author:
