This is known as definite article reduction. Etymology[ edit ] The and that are common developments from the same Old English system. The word the as in phrases like "the more the better", has a distinct origin and etymology and by chance has evolved to be identical to the definite article. Geographical names[ edit ] An area in which the use or non-use of the is sometimes problematic is with geographic names.
When you have a non-Unicode file, the file should adhere to a code page which defines the character repertoire and the code points for the characters.
In Western Europe and the Americas, the code page is typically Other examples are for Eastern Europe and for Greek. A collation in SQL Server is tied to a code page, and you can use the function collationproperty to review the code page for a certain collation. As long as you are only loading data, the code page is all that matters with the collation.
This character is not present in code pageso as a fallback it is replaced by an unaccented L. What happens in the first case, when we do not define any collation at all? And because BCP is a command-line tool of that era, it assumes that when no collation is specified that the data is in the OEM code page.
My OEM code page is which has roughly the same character repertoire asbut the non-ASCII characters do not have the same code points, which explains why the data is misinterpreted and ends up as garbled in the table. The lesson here is that you should never leave the collation field empty for character data, because it is not very likely that you will actually have data in the OEM code page.
Alternatively, you can specify the character set with an option to the bulk-load command to override the default. While this saves you from knowing the code-page number, it could lead to surprises if computers in your organisation have different ANSI code pages and you move the load operation around.
I have not been able to understand why this happens. Some Caveats The bulk-load tools are very rigid with the format of the format file. If you don't specify the collation, you must still mark the property with ""; you cannot leave it out entirely. There must be a final CR-LF after the line which defines the last field in the file or your reward will be a cryptic error.
Overall, errors from the bulk-load tools are often obscure and very difficult to understand. Importing Data with Format Files We have now learnt the meaning of the properties of the format files.
In this chapter we will look at how we can use format files to import data into SQL Server, and in the next we will use them for data export. Generating a Format File If you have a wide table with many columns, you may sigh at the thought of authoring a format file. But if all you need is a small tweak, there is a shortcut you can take: You may wonder about nul, the third argument to BCP here.
In Windows nul is the name of the null device; data written here ends up in the bit bucket. You can specify whatever you like, since BCP will not read nor write any data file, but the argument must be there.
When using the bulk-load tools to copy data from one SQL Server to another, there is little reason to use text files. This avoids surprises when loading the data on the target instance, not the least if collations are different.
Use the format file both when exporting and when importing the data. If your table has a column with spaces in the name, you cannot use the format file that BCP generates out of the box, but you will need to edit it to remove the spaces.THOUGHT FOR THE WEEK Inspirational thoughts, motivational quotes, and wisdom from around the world A new thought each and every week.
