    Unanswered: DTS Error

    Can any body help me to sort out this problem

    I am running a DTS package source as dbf file and destination as sqlserver database the following error occurs

    for row number 2035 errors encountered so far on this
    task 1. insert error, column 3 ('arch_dt', DB_TYPE DBTIMESTAMP)

    when i was opening dbf file in foxbase its showing (arch_dt field) date as datatype the same when i was importing to access the datatype is changing to text type.

    so daily manually i am opening in excel file and delete the records where the line error occurs.

    in excel file that particular row will have some text format instead of dateformat.

    how can i solve this error without manual interaction..

    with regards

    If you insert it as a chracter datatype then you can check the value and correct it.
    You could also probably use an activex script on it but that would be slow.
