ADO.NET Destination ODBC Error

We are trying to move data from our SQL 2008 server to our as400 server. When creating the SSIS package we are using an ADO.NET Destination to the as400 server. The problem is that when we run the package the ADO.NET destination only writes one record to the as400 before failing the package with the following error:

[ADO NET Destination [253]] Error: An exception has occurred during data insertion, the message returned from the provider is: ERROR [07002] [IBM][iSeries Access ODBC Driver]Wrong number of parameters.

We have tried to upload only one record and the process works succefully.  Then two records which fails.

We have been banging our heads over this issue, any help would be appreciated.

Are you committing after each insert?
Also - is your ADO.NET calling any stored proc inside AS400?

We are not calling any procedures on the the AS400 side.

I have to admit that I don't know how to check the fact of commiting on each insert.  Is this a setting in the Data flow task?

Without looking at your code, it is difficult to give an exact reason. However, here are a couple of things to try:

1) Ensure that your ADO.NET connections are being closed - using conn.Close(); at the end of each  (see code below)
2) If you are trying to do multiple inserts all at once (batch mode), you can place them all inside a single transaction as follows (see code below)

If you are doing both of these things, I would need to look at your data access code to figure out what could be missing.
Thanks


// Closing Connections
if (dbConnection.State != ConnectionState.Closed) { dbConnection.Close(); }

// Transaction scope
try
    {
        // BeginTransaction() Requires Open Connection
        connection.Open();
        
        transaction = connection.BeginTransaction();
        
        // Assign Transaction to Command
        command.Transaction = transaction;
        
        // Execute 1st Command
        command.CommandText = "Insert ...";
        command.ExecuteNonQuery();
        
        // Execute 2nd Command
        command.CommandText = "Update...";
        command.ExecuteNonQuery();
        
        transaction.Commit();
    }
    catch
    {
        transaction.Rollback();
        throw;
    }
    finally
    {
       if (connection.State != ConnectionState.Closed) { connection.Close(); }

We are using the GUI designer to create data flow tasks.  We have no code level access to move these data elements.  We are doing this in SSIS.

I am not very familiar with SSIS, however, you may want to look into the 'Bulk Insert ' task instead of a 'data flow' task to do multiple inserts.

use OLE DB provider for as400 instead of ado.net provider

we had tried to use the OLE DB connection with no success,  but we had made the conncection by hand.  Out of sheer desperation we tried the wizard and it created it for us successfully.  

Thanks for your direction
