I mentioned that I had to import a large weather file as part of the FJ project… it *works* using simple VBScript and MSXML but it turns out that it kills the server. Couple other options I found:
a) probably the best way to do it was would be to use SAX instead of DOM, unfortunately MSXML doesn’t support SAX via VBScript, only C++ and Visual Basic. Applicable article here on MSDN re: extracting data from a large document.
b) import the data directly into SQL Server using SQL Server Bulk Load functionality, which is the way I’m heading right now… How to? Here.
Great article here on using SAX 2.0 and Java to process large XML documents.
