DTS Script question
Posted on 2006-06-27
Hi. I'm new to SQL Server 2000 and DTS. Currently, I'm trying to rebuild a DTS script package from a previous project, but I did not create it at that time so I'm suffering through some issues in my attempt to get it working. The script uses a few SQL Tasks, VB ActiveX Scripts, and one Bulk Insert Task.
I continually get Package Execution Results: " 1 task(s) failed during execution " message and then when I double-click to find out why error occurred it tells me:
[Microsoft][ODBC SQL Server Driver]COUNT field incorrect or syntax error
1) I have one Global Variable named "DateProc" set in the beginning ActiveX script as follows:
DTSGlobalVariables("DateProc").Value = InputBox("Enter date [ mm/dd/yyyy ] to be loaded:")
' CHECK IF IT IS A VALID DATE
dt = CDate(DTSGlobalVariables("DateProc").Value )
Main = DTSTaskExecResult_Success
Then, at the end of package, on success of a Bulk Insert Task i then call a Stored Proc named: SPTrades ? When i click "parameters" button it tells me that "The SQL statement does not contain any parameters", but when I go to the stored proc's definition it begins like this: CREATE PROCEDURE dbo.SPTrades(@dt datetime)
Can someone tell me the relationship(s) between the VB ActiveX Script variable 'dt', the global variable 'DateProc' and the ? that is used in the SQL Task's properties SQL statement window to execute the task?
Why does it tell me the SQL statement does not contain any parameters? isn't the parameter = ?
2) The last task ( dbo.SPTrades ? ) continues to fail during execution, and the error occurred = [Microsoft][ODBC SQL Server Driver]COUNT field incorrect or syntax error. How can i resolve this error? Do the number of columns in the table that receives the INSERT have to exactly match (by type and number of columns) the number of items I'm trying to insert?
3) How does the stored proc dbo.Trades access the Global 'DateProc' variable that is set in the first script shown above? Does the Stored Proc automatically gain access to the "DateProc" variable?
NOTE: When I change the Connection in the DTS from [Microsoft ODBC Provider for SQL Server] to [Microsoft OLE DB Provider for SQL Server], then the error I receive on the last item ( dbo.SPTrades ? ) of the DTS is "No value given for one or more required parameters"
