To all database genius out there,
I hope you can help me with this error I encountered when importing excel file to SQL Server 2005.
This is the error:
Executing (Error) Messages Error 0xc020901c: Data Flow Task 1: There was an error with output column "Description" (21) on output "Excel Source Output" (9). The column status returned was: "Text was truncated or one or more characters had no match in the target code page.". (SQL Server Import and Export Wizard) Error 0xc020902a: Data Flow Task 1: The "output column "Description" (21)" failed because truncation occurred, and the truncation row disposition on "output column "Description" (21)" specifies failure on truncation. A truncation error occurred on the specified object of the specified component. (SQL Server Import and Export Wizard) Error 0xc0047038: Data Flow Task 1: SSIS Error Code DTS_E_PRIMEOUTPUTFAILED. The PrimeOutput method on component "Source - 'Data $'" (1) returned error code 0xC020902A. The component returned a failure code when the pipeline engine called PrimeOutput(). The meaning of the failure code is defined by the component, but the error is fatal and the pipeline stopped executing. There may be error messages posted before this with more information about the failure. (SQL Server Import and Export Wizard)
Luckily I have a hint what the problem is all about : It is because data type in excel can only accommodate nvarchar 255, and when I import it, it is beyond nvarchar 255, and that it contains special characters like : ',; and chinese characters.
The thing is, I ran out of solutions.
Thank you in advance for those who will help.
Appreciate it. .
