SQL Server Mgmt Studio: Import Reports Success, Nothing Imported

Why would I run an import and have it report success on 390 rows when, in fact, no rows are imported?

Also, I have gotten the "Review Data Type Mapping" window one time in perhaps 20 attempts. I don't know when/how to make that appear. I see no indication of errors, though I did at first.

The import file is a veritable duplicate data-wise of the SQL table. All the columns map up perfectly, etc.

Sorry. I have no idea what other kind of information you might need to help.

How are you importing the data? The data import/export wizard or an SSIS package? I'm guessing that either you're looking in the wrong place for the results of the import (have you checked tempdb etc) or that the 'imported' data is in a temporary table that is beinng used to update the SQL table if necessary, but that no updates actually are necessary. Perhaps i've misunderstoood your question...

This line suggests that you already have the data in a table - is the process you're running doing a MERGE to this table?

Hi, Simon. Thanks for responding. I did finally get this resolved and just forgot I asked this question. Our instructions said to choose a field, but it wasn't clear that I needed to map to a field whose name was followed by a $ and not the field by the same name that had no $.

Hence, the real problem rested between the keyboard and the chair.

Thanks for responding!
