The problem here may have nothing to do with the fact that I am using a linked server.
Basically I am trying to fill a customer table based on a view from another database. It works fine apart from 2 things.

delete from  webdata.dbo.Customers
INSERT INTO webdata.dbo.Customers (CustomerId, [name] )
select distinct cCustomerId, cName From [Enterprise].[JDE_Production].[dbo].[e_VIEWCustomers]

I get this error "String or binary data would be truncated. The statement has been terminated."
I know what this means as when i use Left(cName ,15) the statment run fine. I am going to be filling address and other info and woould rather not use left for each. Can I let the statement run and truncate the data if it is too large.

The other problem is this when I remove the DISTINCT from the select it fails and tells me I cannot insert duplicates however  the VIEW e_VIEWCustomers already contains DISTINCT. Maybe I am using distinct wrong.

Here is the e_VIEWCustomers select if you want to have a look  THANKS.

SELECT DISTINCT
                      TOP 100 PERCENT PRODDTA.F0101.ABAN8 AS cCode, RIGHT(STR(PRODDTA.F0101.ABAN8), 6) AS cCustomerId,
                      PRODDTA.F0111.WWMLNM AS cName, PRODDTA.F0116.ALADD1 AS cAddress1, PRODDTA.F0116.ALADD2 AS cAddress2,

Ok I am using the DISTINCT wrong as when I add more fields it fails so there must be a duplicate account no with a different address or something.

So forget about the DISTINCT

Hi,

For your error message
I get this error "String or binary data would be truncated. The statement has been terminated."
I know what this means as when i use Left(cName ,15) the statment run fine. I am going to be filling address and other info and woould rather not use left for each. Can I let the statement run and truncate the data if it is too large.

It has already failed.

No, it will not truncate the data. Use left( cName, 15 ) or whatever is appropriate.

Regards
  David
