Hi, I am trying to insert data via a linked server into a navision database...

I am using sql server 2000 and am using Navisions C/ODBC driver.

I can query the linked server and pull back data no problem...

But when I attempt the following it all goes wrong :

insert into OPENQUERY(NAVISION_DB,'SELECT Type,Code,Description FROM FDR_Fund_Type')
VALUES ('Fund','Test','SQLServer')

The following is displayed :
Server: Msg 7399, Level 16, State 1, Procedure NAV_DATE_TEST, Line 33
OLE DB provider 'MSDASQL' reported an error. The provider did not give any information about the error.
OLE DB error trace [OLE/DB Provider 'MSDASQL' IDBInitialize::Initialize returned 0x80004005:  The provider did not give any information about the error.].


Any ideas, this is driving me insane!!!

Hi, the linked server is pointing to a NAVISION C/Side database.

The target columns appear to be native NAVISION datatypes :

Type = "option"
Code = "code"
Description = "text"

Also another weird thing, after the insert attempt fails, my connection to the linked server from within sqlserver dies.

So when i click on the linked server to expand the tables i get an error message containing
MSDASQL IDBInitialize::Initialize returned 0x80004005

Help!

Try this

insert into OPENQUERY(NAVISION_DB,'SELECT Type,Code,Description FROM FDR_Fund_Type where 1=0')
VALUES ('Fund','Test','SQLServer')

What does it mean to be "Always On"?

Is your cloud always on? With an Always On cloud you won't have to worry about downtime for maintenance or software application code updates, ensuring that your bottom line isn't affected.

Note In the INSERT statement, a where 1=0 predicate is used to avoid retrieving data from the remote server, which can result in slower performance

Hi Imran, thanks for the reply.

Unfortunately, apart from the "where clause" my statement is identical to yours and fails accordingly.

cheers,

May be security or there might be some triggers on that destination table.
