property bool EnableStreaming {
	bool get();

Property Value

Type: System::Boolean

true if a SqlBulkCopy object can stream data from an IDataReader object; otherwise, false. The default is false.

When EnableStreaming is true, SqlBulkCopy reads from an IDataReader object using SequentialAccess, optimizing memory usage by using the IDataReader streaming capabilities. When it’s set to false, the SqlBulkCopy class loads all the data returned by the IDataReader object into memory before sending it to SQL Server or SQL Azure.
