IBCPSession::BCPWriteFmt (OLE DB)
Writes format information for each column to the format file.
The format file specifies the data format of a data file created by bulk copy. Calls to the IBCPSession::BCPColumns and IBCPSession::BCPColFmt methods define the format of the data file. The BCPWriteFmt method saves this definition in the file referenced by the pwszFormatFile argument.
The BCPWriteFmt method can save the format files in either xml or text format. This must be indicated by using the BCP_OPTION_XML control option with the IBCPSession::BCPControl method.
To load a saved format file, use the IBCPSession::BCPReadFmt method.
The format file produced by the BCPWriteFmt method is supported only by versions of the bcp utility distributed with SQL Server version 7.0 or later.
