Task Scheduler Error

We have a perl script running on Windows 2003 Server (called via Task Scheduler) that parses CSV files and inserts the records into a SQL 2000 database.  

The Task Scheduler Log (SchedLgU.Txt) states: "Result: The task completed with an exit code of (9)," which according to http://www.hiteksoftware.com/mize/Knowledge/articles/049.htm, means "The storage control block address is invalid."

Any idea what might be causing this error or how we can rectify it?

Thanks - Matt

1) has this worked in the past ?
2) Wat has changed ?

3) Does a manual run have issues ?

Mostly errors are caused by permissions of the task scheduled, and the context of the user.

I hope this helps !

Does the perl script create a log?  If not, could you change it so it does create a log - writing to the log every so often.  Then you could look at the log and see the last portion that ran successfully.

Thanks, guys.  

Turns out the error msg was generated because the script was trying to insert nulls into fields that were not setup to allow null values.
