SQL Query Help - Bulk Insert

I’m getting a syntax error when I run the following query, from a button.

Query:

 getFrom=r'\\wtz-svr-fs-01\FileShare\Wentzville\SeqPublic\WEN-201 LOC\Container Management System\MARS_Import\TVS Updated CSV_Fixed.csv'
 rowTerm=r'\n'
 fieldTerm=r'~'
 errorPath=r'\\wtz-svr-fs-01\FileShare\Wentzville\SeqPublic\WEN-201 LOC\Container Management System\MARS_Import\myRubbishData.log'

 system.db.runPrepUpdate("""
 bulk insert import_Mars
 from ?
 with
 (
 rowterminator=?,
 fieldterminator=?,
 firstrow = 2,
 ERRORFILE = ? 
 )
 """,[getFrom,rowTerm,fieldTerm,errorPath])

Error:

 Ignition v7.9.4 (b2017082911)

Hi,

First of all, please use backticks (`) to format code, it makes it a lot easier to read.

The error seems to be about the first argument (@P0), so you should probably try with hardcoded arguments first, and then try to replace those by variables. I don’t know to what extend the ?-replacement works with bulk inserts.

This is definitely it. You may not be able to run bulk insert as a prepared statement in this way (up to the JDBC driver, not Ignition); so you may need to use string substitution to insert the filename rather than a parameter substitute. There’s some discussion on this topic here:

Also, I cleaned up the code formatting on your post, but @Sanderd17 is definitely correct; wrapping in triple backticks (`) is the preferred way to post code.
