Symptoms

If you use the BULK INSERT command with the BATCHSIZE and LASTROW options in combination, the LASTROW command is ignored and all rows in the data file are imported.

Workaround

Do not use BATCHSIZE in combination with the LASTROW option. Testing would seem to indicate, however, that if the batchsize is a 0 modulus of the lastrow, then the import will stop where requested.

You can also use the Bcp.exe command line utility as a workaround, if you need to use both the batchsize and lastrow arguments. Use the following command at an MS-DOS prompt:
bcp ?b<batch_size> -L<last_row>
