Error-You cannot record your changes because a value you entered violates the setings defined for this table.

I have a access tables which are linked to SQL.When I tried to import from excel to that table,it gives me this error --Error-You cannot record your changes because a value you entered violates the setings defined for this table.(for example, a value is less than the minimum or greater than the maximum)
I have about 35000 rows and I tried using 200 rows,and I didnt have a problem,it loads successfully.But if I import the whole file,it gave me an error.

I have other table too which does the same process and it could successfuly load about 55000 records but I dont know what I am missing in this table.Any help will be greatly appreciated.Thanks

@arthur-I realized what access does was access looks at first 20 rows,if it sees the number as a datatype and later it sees some alphanumeric,it won't load that rows even the datatype is text in access.If there is alphanumeric in first few rows, it will load the whole file without error.I tested creating one test table in access and try to load the same file into that table ,not the linked one,it loads the whole file but also created another table called import$error  where it shows the rows that were not loaded.

Any info on what field caused the error?
You need to identify the incorrect value(s) in the table...
Then create a system to prevent these invalid values from being entered in the first place.

Or, on the other end, import the table to a temp "staging" table, then create a process to scan this temp table for violations (then fix them).

Do you have access to the field definitions in SQL to see what all the constraints are on each field?

Check if the fields in the table have integrity (Field > x or Field < Y)checks and edit your data accordingly.

>>As i tried using 200 rows,,it uploaded successfully<<  

that just means that those 200 specific rows did not have the error condition that you are encountering in other rows in the full set of data.

@Arthur, I didn't have errors on those rows.I tried using import/export in sql server from excel to the sql table,it did load all the 35,000 rows successfully but i dont understand why I am not able to load it in access table which are linked to sql from excel.

The only way I was able to import to linked table without any error is converting all spreadsheets fields type to Text.What I figure out is,some of the fields have numbers for few rows and later it takes some charater or alphanumeric,then it violates with this error,even though datatype is nvarchar in sql.Isn't this weird??

Fields that are empty asre being imported as blanks (which are seen as characters)  . Generally, you should import into a 'holding  table", verify the data, then import into the final destination.
