I am trying to import an excel file into an sql table using ms access, however i am getting the attached error...
Is there a way to find out what exactly is preventing those records from being imported?
(I have tried looking into sql profiler, but didn't see anything under error column)

I don't see anything on the Word Doc. Just post a screenshot (image) of the error message. Many Experts won't even review your Word document ...

looking into the error it says it missed 1311 records due to key violations.

The only thing that I can think of is the primary key on the table... check what is the primary key on the table into which you are loading this data

and check if there are any duplicates with the primary key criteria and remove them from the input file.

Hi Scott,
How do you insert an image?
when i click on the image icon above, it saves as attachment as you see above.
by right click/paste it doesn't work either.

instead of you going back and forth, can you give us your input file here and also the create table script that you used to create the SQL table.

This will help us to pin point the issue and provide you a reliable solution quickly from both the ends.

if that is not feasible due to the red tape of your company (cofidential data ) then what you can do is something like below

1) see 34726 is an id right, check 34726 exists some where else as well, you have to remove it to get it to working.

you have to do it  too all the records, it is easy once you sort that in EXCEL by Id and check for duplicates over there.

Hi Serendra,
This latest error seems to be just a setting in the database (identity_insert), how do i set this on?

you have to use the below command to do it

SET IDENTITY_INSERT <your table name> ON

Open in new window
