  • If I understand you correctly you have a SQL proc that does inserts/updates (if it inserts or updates doesn'r really matter here)? I asume that proc takes as parameters the various values for one row in the table you want to inset/update? Now you want to be able to send an arbitrary number of rows to that proc.

    As SQL Server 2005 (and earlier) doesn't support table valued parameters (which SQL 2008 does) you have run into the age-old problem of multi-row updating in one network roundtrip.

    If this is the problem you have, then one way of solving it is to send the data as an xml blob into the proc, let the proc shred the blob and do the inserts/updates.
