Hey i have a filename in this format RECORDddmmyyyy on my PC.

I want to include it into mysql table.I solve the problem of getting date but still have one issue,how to pass it to the database.

char filename ="RECORD"
i append later on the date to it as well as .txt and it works

I am using this statement to include it it works for one day only.
What should i write insted of RECORD14092010 so it can take "filename" instead of RECORD14092010
SQLWCHAR* SQL = L"LOAD DATA LOCAL INFILE 'C:/RECORD14092010.txt' INTO TABLE test FIELDS terminated by ','";

I think you just need to make the SQL string dynamic, is that your problem?

If so...

wchar_t SQL_Query_String[512];
int DateEncoded = 14092010;
swprintf(SQL_Query_String, 512, L"LOAD DATA LOCAL INFILE 'C:/RECORD%d.txt' INTO TABLE test FIELDS terminated by ','", DateEncoded);

Hey.cant i use the same syntax: SQLWCHAR* SQL=

And i want everyday to insert yesterday date not one specific date.

i have the code for yesterday no prob.

time_t now, yesterday;
char li[13];


time(&now);
yesterday = now-60*60*24;

strftime(li, 13, "%d%m%Y", localtime(&yesterday));

You replace DateEncoded with the result you just coded in your post.

And it seems like SQLWCHAR is actually a wchar_t, so it might be compatible. If it isn't, it shouldn't be hard to convert them.

I replaced it but not working. Check it for me:

SQLWCHAR* SQL = L"LOAD DATA LOCAL INFILE 'C:/RECORD%s.txt' INTO TABLE test FIELDS terminated by ','",li;

How should i use it? should i include any library or smtg.
I would appreciate if you can provide me with the code.

Thank you

instead of SQL_query_string what should i write?

my variable currently is: SQLWCHAR outstr[1024];

i am writing:

swprintf(outstr, 1024, L"LOAD DATA LOCAL INFILE 'C:/RECORD%d.txt' INTO TABLE test FIELDS terminated by ','", li);

but not working

How should i use it? should i include any library or smtg.

And why haven't you searched google for "swprintf"? The answer to that is in literally a million places online.

I would appreciate if you can provide me with the code.

I think I provided you with enough code. This is your project after all. Ask me specific questions and I will answer them.

my variable currently is: SQLWCHAR outstr[1024];

Using my good friend google, I searched for "SQLWCHAR" and found out it is not a wchar_t, its instead an unsigned short. Since wchar_t can be 2 or 4 bytes depending on the implementation, It might be incompatible with swprintf(). Are you running linux or windows?

Then it should work, since SQLWCHAR is an unsigned short and so is wchar_t in your platform.

int li = 12345;

// This should work
SQLWCHAR outstr[1024]; 
swprintf(outstr, 1024, L"LOAD DATA LOCAL INFILE 'C:/RECORD%d.txt' INTO TABLE test FIELDS terminated by ','", li);

// It should be the same as this
wchar_t outstr[1024]; 
swprintf(outstr, 1024, L"LOAD DATA LOCAL INFILE 'C:/RECORD%d.txt' INTO TABLE test FIELDS terminated by ','", li);

If it still doesn't, show me the entire code you are using. Make sure its in [[b]CODE[/b]] tags.
