Unanswered: Inserting with DTS in IDENTITY table
I need to insert values from a text-file to a table with a primary key as identity. In the text file I have no idea of the primary key values and i get "foreign key constraint violation" when trying to import null values into the column.
How can I solve the problem? With ordinary insert-statement there is no problem since the table generates identity- key values automatically. Is there a possibility to generate identity values with DTS-import?

you just need to not map anything to the primary key column. In the wizard, you need to hit the transform button and make and under the column mappings make sure ignore is selected. If you are using the DTS desginer, you need to get rid of the mapping on your transform data task under the transformations task.“If one brings so much courage to this world the world has to kill them or break them, so of course it kills them. The world breaks every one and afterward many are strong at the broken places. But those that will not break it kills. It kills the very good and the very gentle and the very brave impartially. If you are none of these you can be sure it will kill you too but there will be no special hurry.” Earnest Hemingway, A Farewell To Arms.
