HI All,

There's a SQL job that runs.  It imports a text file.  Runs every night.  This morning it throws an error.

Error Code: 0xC02020A1
"Description: Data conversion failed. The data conversion for column "Column 26" returned status value 4 and status text "Text was truncated or one or more characters had no match in the target code page.". "

Error Code: 0xC020902A
"Description: The "output column "Column 26" (114)" failed because truncation occurred<c/> and the truncation row disposition on "output column "Column 26" (114)" specifies failure on truncation. A truncation error occurred on the specified object of the specified component. "

Error Code: 0xC0202092
"Source: Data Flow Task Source - filename_txt [1]     Description: An error occurred while processing file "filename.txt" on data row 43. "

I cut the file down twice and successfully imported the first 217 files (out of 757).  Next I cut out the next 50 files - but came up with the same error as above.

Any ideas on this?

Do you have a value in this file that is larger than the defined column length?

Either enlarge the column, reduce the field content size or simply add SET ANSI_WARNINGS OFF before you begin your import (assuming your import job is a script).

I'm looking at row 43, in the text file, and the data for output column named "Column 26".  It usually contains a "Y" in the field and in SQL it's defined as nvarchar(255).  So I think that's ok.
If I look at the text file column 26, the field, looks as wide as the file above it.

Will SET ANSI WARNINGS OFF - make SQL continue adding the records after the error?

Yes, SET ANSI_WARNINGS OFF will bypass truncation errors. If that doesn't fix your problem, another question to rule out is whether there an additional delimiter character in your data. (Obviously, this is a data issue.)
