I've never seen that error before, and I suspect its coming from the database client, not Transformer itself.  Can you post the output of your transformer build showing the error?

I have tried to eliminate the no. of column to 255 and it's ok, is it because cognos ver 7.4 cannot support database with more than 255 cols? any suggestion to fix this?? and why no problem if I using ver 6.5 ??

Attached the error message to you for your reference

Is your 7.4 installed on the same machine as your 6.5?  This error is usually caused by a bad/older database driver, although I've seen it occur if some of the Transformer DLL's weren't upgraded correctly.

I install the ver 7.4 in different machine, separate from ver 6.5

Could be a number of them.  Here's a common one; compare the version with your 6.5 machine.

And as a test, try installing 7.4 on the same machine as your 6.5 (they go into different directories, so they shouldn't conflict with one another)

C:\program files\common files\microsoft shared\DAO\DAO350.DLL

I had found that 2 file: dao360.dll (3.60.8618.0) and dao350.dll (3.51.1608.0) exist in this path
C:\program files\common files\microsoft shared\DAO\
which one should be the one suit this upgrade?

Thanks
