Errors importing database from Access 2007 to SQL 2014

I'm using the SQL server import tool to import an Access database and create an SQL 2014 database, however it's erroring out and not finishing. See the error below.

Try using SQL Server Migration Assistant:

That tool can help to identify errors before import

This is the error:

Order_Header.Inputs[Destination Input]. The column status returned was:
"Conversion failed because the data value overflowed the specified type.".

So you will need to adjust the data type of this field.

As the source holds the data already, it is the destination that seems to need an adjustment.

Order_Header is a table.

I can't figure out what field needs to be modified.

Then your "date" field is most likely a text field containing invalid dates.

Use IsDate([YourField]) to check it out.

I have several fields that are dates. Date_Needed, Date_Ordered etc.

Migration Tool keeps seeing to see the log for details, but I can't find a log!

Still banging my head on this.  Thousands of records to look at.

Error: Error occurred during data migration.
See the log for the detailed information. The given value of type DateTime from the data source cannot be converted to type bit of the specified target column.

Gustav BrockCIOCommented:
It's because you use Datetime2. ODBC doesn't understand this and converts these to text.

Best thing is to change the data type to Datetime.
Or you change your destination field to text and have converter functions to and from real date values (not a very funny task).

I changed to just datetime and still stops migration about 74% with the same error. With 25145 rows it stops at 23000. I checked row 23001 and can't see anything weird.

Try creating the table schema only. Then, later, copy the data.

The message seems quite clear.
Sort ascending the table on the date field and correct those dates earlier than 1753-01-01.

I don't have anything older than 2003

There must be something. Did you study the log as recommended?

cnl83Author Commented:
After sorting each individual date field by the oldest, there was one record that had foreign characters or invalid information. All went smooth once I deleted it.
