Im trying to read a html file directly into the sql db.

Is that possible ?

are there any parsers out there i can use ?

same file is at :

i'm trying to add the table that begins with "strike" as columns and all the others as well. I need the actual data input into sql not the html code.

Thanks in advance.

There are a few parser scripts around written in Powershell. They will take a html file and clear out the html code. From there you can place them in an object and pass through to a SQL Server table

I probably wouldn't do this in the database, but if pushed, I'd have a crack at loading the HTML into an XML type then use XML functions to pull it apart.
