    Unanswered: Problem in Importing data from excel to sql server

    I have excel file that has field named Purpose. Its max length is 400 character. I import this file to sql server database table. And also i change the purpose field in sql server database table with nvarchar 400. But when i run this job, it gave me error message:

    Error at source for row number 1215. Errors encountereed so far in this task: 1.
    Data for source column 18 ('Purpose') is too large for the specified buffer size.

    What should i do so that i still can import the data from excel to sql server database?

    Thanks for your help.

    I have far fewer problems when I take spreadsheets and put them in Access and then import them into sql server from access than I do just importing from excel.
    “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.
