Trouble Importing Into SQL Server from CSV File

I am attempting to import a CSV file into SQL server, but when I do I get the following errors:


- Executing (Error)
Messages
Error 0xc02020a1: Data Flow Task 1: Data conversion failed. The data conversion for column ""description"" returned status value 4 and status text "Text was truncated or one or more characters had no match in the target code page.".

Error 0xc020902a: Data Flow Task 1: The "output column ""description"" (26)" failed because truncation occurred, and the truncation row disposition on "output column ""description"" (26)" specifies failure on truncation. A truncation error occurred on the specified object of the specified component.

Error 0xc0202092: Data Flow Task 1: An error occurred while processing file "C:\Users\Administrator\Desktop\AUTO PARTS DB\part(1).csv" on data row 2.

Error 0xc0047038: Data Flow Task 1: SSIS Error Code DTS_E_PRIMEOUTPUTFAILED.  The PrimeOutput method on component "Source - part(1)_csv" (1) returned error code 0xC0202092.  The component returned a failure code when the pipeline engine called PrimeOutput(). The meaning of the failure code is defined by the component, but the error is fatal and the pipeline stopped executing.  There may be error messages posted before this with more information about the failure.

If is not mandatory for you to use SSIS and you know the file is csv not xls you can use the code below but you need to create the SQL table I called "CSVTest" with same structure as the CSV file first:


--Now run following script to load all the data from CSV to database table. If there is any error in any row it will be not inserted but other rows will be inserted.
BULK
INSERT CSVTest
FROM 'c:\csvtest.txt'
WITH
(
FIELDTERMINATOR = ',',
ROWTERMINATOR = '\n'
)
GO
--Check the content of the table.
SELECT *
FROM CSVTest
GO
--Drop the table to clean up database.
SELECT *
FROM CSVTest
GO

I tried using the code, and it worked while i was doing just 2 records, but I tried to put in a full file with multiple records and get errors.  here are some of the errors:

Msg 4863, Level 16, State 1, Line 1
Bulk load data conversion error (truncation) for row 1, column 5 ("description").
Msg 4863, Level 16, State 1, Line 1
Bulk load data conversion error (truncation) for row 2, column 5 ("description").
Msg 4863, Level 16, State 1, Line 1
Bulk load data conversion error (truncation) for row 3, column 2 ("title").
Msg 4863, Level 16, State 1, Line 1
Bulk load data conversion error (truncation) for row 4, column 5 ("description").

Hey,

If table is not exists in SQL and trying to Import data using SSIS will create on the fly Table in SQL Database.

Please follow the Step to import data in SQL using wizard. In that in one step click the Edit mapping button and increase the size of destination "description" columns.

The errors you posted above leads me to believe that the 2 rows had "description" and "title" data that could fit in the table.columns you created but not the actual csv file. If you are not sure about the length use varchar(max) from data type or Nvarchar(max) if you know UNICODE chars can exists in any of the fields.
