Unanswered: bulk insert problems
situation is like this:
I have csv file I would like to import into table. However I have problems with code page 852 so I changed it to 850. Here is the command
bulk insert ticket_dump_remedy from 'c:\work\ticket_dump_remedy_040308.csv'
CODEPAGE = 850,
After that execution ends with error:
Bulk insert data conversion error (type mismatch) for row 2, column 2 (Create Date).
Create Date is defined as datetime....
Example of file row is this one...
"Case ID+","Create Date","Type+"
"APHD00000031378","12/2/2003 10:13:00 AM","General"
OK, so you've got bad data....
Load the data to a stage table that has varchar for all data types
The use ISNUMERIC and ISDATE to test to see the bad rows....
ALTER The table after the load to add an identity column to confirm the row the badat data is on
thank you for your help and time
but this csv file comes every day and my goal is update database according to this file so I will have to look for another solution
Do you have a process to audit the file?
How big is it?
Do you have headers and trailers with the data?
Since it's csv, does it have a column list in row 1?
If you make a stage table, all varchar, you can check the file out before you apply it.
it's file about 3000 rows
unfortunatelly I don't have any process to check if the csv is ok...
I will have xls file with the same data so probably I will try to connect to xls file via ODBC and get data from there....hopefully it will work..
anyway thank you for your time
I have tried the excel file and it's working.... I converted csv to excel and than uploaded data from there and somehow it's working. Don't ask me how...
