This post will focus on recreating the binary documents on the file system. Below is the stored procedure I will binary option time to export the data. You will see that I have decided to use a cursor to process all documents. The procedure also accepts a DocID, which limits the export to a single document.
SSIS package that executes the stored procedure across multiple streams, if you need parallel processing. The above stored procedure dynamically builds a BCP command. DocID is used when you want to export a single row, if no value is supplied the stored procedure will export all documents. You can add additional parameters if you need these attributes to be dynamic. You may be asking yourself, why the format file looks skimpy, or is lacking content.
The format file is lacking content because it only has what we need. Once the format file is in place, we can execute our stored procedure to process all documents. It is that easy to output VARBINARY data onto the file system. I hope that you have learned something new. Please stay tuned, as I plan to focus more on TSQL concepts and performance considerations. I’m very lucky that I met your blog.
