Unanswered: one more import issue
I am importing a text file with '~' column delimiter and my text has in the file has some format.If i import the data into the sql table all the text is appearing in one line by missing the formart.
(here is the sample data.
IF i import the above data into a table with emp_txt as text data type
i am getting
all in one row like:kkkgkhfdhg hhhghg hoghodshgohdsoiahgfhoghojhqgh.But i should get it same as in the notepad.
for that i have changed the datatype of the emp_text column as image in my database.
But when i change the datatype my DTS is giving the following error:
Error at Destination for Row number 1. Errors encountered so far in this task: 1.
Insert error,Column3('emp_text',DBTYPE_BYTES),status 2: Error converting value.
Invalid character value for cast specification.

In the format file also specify asterisk (*) as a row separator."The data in a record depends on the Key to the record, the Whole Key, and
nothing but the Key, so help me Codd."
