Hi All..

The year hasn't even started and I'm battling again.

I want to import data into sql server 2005 through an excel 2003 file. I do this through the built in mechanism of sql server 2005. But I get the following error:

- Executing (Error)

I know my problem is my "Notes" column because there are some that have enters in and that's why I get the truncated error. I tried googling for answers but unsuccessful. Can anyone please help me with this..??

the original files are text files, but I used the excel built in converter to convert to excel 2003 file. the flat file method in sql server doesn't work either I get the same error.
