set to true and the source import being empty.  I believe this will
run faster than delete, even better would be if your application had
a set of real rows to load when you want to truncate and use the table

Here is a link to 10.0 documentation for the system procedure:

I am not sure where truncate table is, I believe the issue is SQL standards.
