I have a vbscript I have done that works great but I am trying to do everything in Powershell in my scripting lately.
Set objDL = CreateObject("ADODB.Connection")
objDL.ConnectionString = "provider=SQLOLEDB.1;data source=Washington;database=SBI;uid=sysadm;pwd=xxxx"
objDL.Execute("delete from wgo_mainframe_parts_test")
Set objBL = Nothing

Set objBL = CreateObject("SQLXMLBulkLoad.SQLXMLBulkLoad")
objBL.ConnectionString = "provider=SQLOLEDB.1;data source=Washington;database=SBI;uid=sysadm;pwd=sunny13"
objBL.ErrorLogFile = "c:\vbscript\error2.log"
objBL.Execute "c:\vbscript\sunparts_schema.xml", "c:\vbscript\sunnybrook_parts.xml"
Set objBL = Nothing

So i was curious how I import the dll for the xmlbulkload.

I started a script with
[Reflection.Assembly]::LoadFile(‘c:\Program Files\Common Files\System\Ole DB\xblkld4.dll’)
However I get the following error when I try to run it. Was curious how i do this in Powershell

Exception calling "LoadFile" with "1" argument(s): "The module was expected to contain an assembly manifest. (Exception from HRESULT: 0x80131018)"
At C:\Powershell\BulkPartsInsert.ps1:1 char:33

You can only do that for .NET assemblies, and that one isn’t one.

$bl = New-Object -Com SQLXMLBulkLoad.SQLXMLBulkLoad

Basically the same as you did in VBScript, just different syntax.
