From MS Access 2003 table to "identical" MS SQL Server 2005 table

Hello there!

When I try

SET IDENTITY_INSERT Stocks ON
INSERT INTO Stocks
SELECT Access.*
FROM OPENROWSET('Microsoft.Jet.OLEDB.4.0',
'C:\PathToDatabase\DatabaseName.mdb';'admin';'',Stocks) As Access

I get the following error:

Msg 8101, Level 16, State 1, Line 5
An explicit value for the identity column in table 'Stocks' can only be specified when a column list is used and IDENTITY_INSERT is ON.

Please explain the error and correct what is wrong.

Note: there are 2 identical Primary Key´s at Access and SQL Server, both called StockID.

Thanks,
fskilnik.

you need to specifically name your columns

SET IDENTITY_INSERT Stocks ON
INSERT INTO Stocks (StockID, columnA, columnB, ...)
SELECT StockID, columnA, columnB, ...
FROM OPENROWSET('Microsoft.Jet.OLEDB.4.0',
'C:\PathToDatabase\DatabaseName.mdb';'admin';'',Stocks) As Access

Perfect, BriCrowe. Thanks for the quick and explicit reply.
