SELECT Text File using OpenRowSet

Posted on

Here’s a simple query to directly SELECT a Text File.

HDR = Header Row. If YES, that means your first row is a header.

SELECT *
FROM OPENROWSET(‘Microsoft.ACE.OLEDB.12.0’, ‘Text;Database=E:\;HDR=YES’, ‘SELECT * FROM Log.txt’)

If you need the Microsfot ACE OLEDB 12 driver, please refer to  Microsoft Jet OLEDB 12
