Adding sample execution code for your problem

CREATE TABLE stackoverflow_data (
    no VARCHAR(50)
    ,Name VARCHAR(50)
    ,id VARCHAR(50)
    ,state VARCHAR(50)
    ,address VARCHAR(50)
    ,testdate DATETIME2(3)

        INTO #stack_data
        from stackoverflow_data sd
        WHERE = 0

BULK INSERT #stack_data FROM '\\test\others\input.dat' WITH (FIRSTROW = 1, ROWTERMINATOR = '\n', FIELDTERMINATOR = '|', ROWS_PER_BATCH = 10000)

insert INTO stackoverflow_data (no, Name, id, state, address, testdate)
            FROM #stack_data sd
