SSIS Package in SQL Server 2005

Medium Priority

Last Modified: 2012-05-07
I have a database that has many tables and for the most part each table has primary keys that are autogenerated.  I have to update a table with many new records.  I am able to open up my management console and manuallly add entries to it.  but the problem is that i have close to 200 records to input.  
I decided to go the SSIS route.  unfortuntately when i go through the wizard i get an error message. which is attached.  

I created a file that has the next auto number manually added.  I have also done an import without filling out anything in the id field.  
table has 5 columns

id                 int           no nulls
costcat       int            nulls
costcode    varchar5  nulls
definition    varchar80  nulls
active         varchar1  nulls


Im not much of an SQL admin but im trying to learn as i go along.  Please let me know what other peice of info might be needed.

Since you are inserting into an identity field, did you enable the check box for identity insert?

Commented:
Seems that you are trying to insert a duplicate or null value to your primary ke "id"
Helped?

Commented:
Remove the id column from your import - and remove the mappings.  The ID column will auto increment when you insert your other data.

If you are doing the import through management studio there is a checkbox called enable identity insert on the edit mappings button.

If through bids on the data source destination there is a checkbox that says keep identity.

Hi ansonindustries,
How are you
your error occurred when import from Excel to SQL 2005 DB Table.
please try one of these solutions:
1- change your cells format to text in Excel sheet
OR
2- delete the formula fields in your Excel sheet, and the NULL values.
thanks

Commented:
same error after changing fields to text.  and since ther are no formulas or null values i cant do the second option.

for now im only importing 1 row of data just to test it out.  I am using MS SQL server management studio from my desktop and the actual sql server is on another machine ive been reading stuff about upgrading my sql server to a higher service pack.  any suggestions of how i can find out what type of sql server i have already?  im pretty sure its a chopped down version.  i aslo dont have the full managment console on the server only the free management studio so i cant do import/export from that console.

Commented:
Open a query window and execute the following:
SELECT serverproperty('Edition');
SELECT @@version;
