In this video, Mohammad Azam demonstrates how to handle schema mapping when using the SqlBulkCopy class to insert bulk data. His demonstration uses non-matching source and destination tables, and he uses mappings to allow the copying. He shows how to statically define mappings as well as how to write code which determines mappings at run-time. [6:12]

Title: sqlbulkcopy datatype mismatch   
Name: Nandu
Date: 2011-01-06 10:08:38 AM
I have some data that is validated using XSLT and returns the data in XML format. I am loading this XML data into a SQL Server database using SQLBulkCopy.
Sometimes due to various validation criteria, some of the nodes have blanks (no data populated), but the corresponding datatype in the SQL database is either int or date, etc.
A blank value is considered as a string by SQLBulkCopy and it tries to insert string into date or int type columns.

Is there a way i can convert the blanks into NULL or associate proper datatypes in column mapping?

What's the best way to resolve this issue?
