Importing FoxPro .dbf table into SQL Server with VFPOleDB driver Errors
Posted on 2010-09-23
I am having difficulty importing a FoxPro v7 .dbf file into SQL Server 2000 using the vfpoledb driver. The foxpro table is approaching 2 GB in size and I am looking for a solution where I don't have to split these tables by migrating this data to SQL Server where there isn't this limit. When trying to import through the DTS Import/Export Wizard and select "Microsoft OLE DB Provider for Visual FoxPro" for the datasource and select the free table I get the following errors a few seconds after it has begun the import process:
Error at Destination for Row number 1. Errors encountered so far in this task: 1. Insert error, column 62('date', DBTYPE_DBTIMESTAMP), status 6: Data overflow. Invalid character value for cast specification.
Seems to be getting stuck on the Memofields (with the ODBC driver) and DateTime fields with the OleDB. Can anyone provide direction on this? Any suggestion for a good 3rd party tool?
