How do I pass through DT_TEXT fields in Fuzzy Lookup transformation
Posted on 2007-11-14
In my Data Flow Task I have a Fuzzy Lookup transformation. In the Columns tab of the Fuzzy Lookup Transformation Editor, if I choose a field that is a DT_TEXT data type, I get the error:
Validation error. Data Flow Task: Fuzzy Lookup : The data type of column 'event_list' is not supported.Package.dtsx
Any thoughts on how I may workaround this issue? I was thinking I would need to perform the lookup on a subset of the columns without the DT_TEXT field and then merge the data back together at the end. But, if there's a setting or some other way, please let me know.
