Hi -- had to import a csv into a temp table (Sybase ASE)
Of course, the temp table woulnd not show up under the current db, so I went to tempdb. In the tempdb, ASE appends a unique id in form of __############## to temp table. So when I started to import the data, I, obviously got an error:
~^09:42:08 Import started. Wait...^~
~^09:42:08 [ Row: 2, File lines: 2/3 ] The identifier that starts with '"#nasd100_____000049500104249' is too long. Maximum length is 28.^~
~^09:42:08 Import interrupted because of error(s)^~
~^... Import finished. 0 row(s) inserted and 1 failed.^~
So, what I'm getting at is to have ability of importing the data into the temp tables. I guess a quick solution would be enabling the Table textbox to accept custom table names (in the Import CSV File dialog, as it is currentlyu disabled).
As a work around, which took a bit more time, I exported data in SQL format as bunch of insert statements indicating the destination (temp) table name and then just executed them. Having ability to import directly into a temp table from that dialog would def save me some time. Besides, its a big value and a good thing to have, i think.
