Invalid Character Value For Cast Specification

Jan 25, 2008

Hi All,

accessing through ODBC a frond end application which is running on MS SQL Server 2005, works just fine with a specific setup as concerned as the decimal/thousands separators ("," for thousands and "." for decimals). If i switch these settings alternatively ("." for thousands and "," for decimals), i get this error:
[Microsoft][ODBC SQL Server Driver]Invalid character value for cast specification.

I tried to search forum and internet but no luck.
Thanks in advance

Invalid Character Value For Cast Specification

Mar 13, 2008

hello,
i have a problem with SQL Server Agent. Sometimes, when a scheduled job runs i get this error:

Error: 2008-03-13 06:04:50.50 Code: 0xC0202009 Source: Load Current OLE DB Destination [124] Description: SSIS Error Code DTS_E_OLEDBERROR. An OLE DB error has occurred. Error code: 0x80004005. An OLE DB record is available. Source: "Microsoft SQL Native Client" Hresult: 0x80004005 Description: "Invalid character value for cast specification". End Error Error: 2008-03-13 06:04:50.52 Code: 0xC020901C Source: Load Current OLE DB Destination [124] Description: There was an error with input column "collectDate" (217) on input "OLE DB Destination Input" (137). The column status returned was: "Conversion failed because the data value overflowed the specified type.". End Error Error: 2008-03-13 06:04:50.52 Code: 0xC0209029 Source: Load Current OLE DB Destination [124]

the code i use looks like this

DECLARE @Report_date datetime
SET @Report_date = dateadd(dd,-1,convert(varchar(10),getdate(),121))

select
CollectDate = @Report_date


the destination column is datetime.
Is this a known issue / bug? Because this doesn't happen everytime, and when it does happen all i have to do ia run the job again.


Thank you in advance

Invalid Character Value For Cast Specification

Oct 31, 2007


I have a Data Flow task that is simply copying data from table A to table B. (there is a derived column in between however)

All the columns in table A are varchar(255). The columns in table B vary: floats, decimals, etc

However, I am getting a bazillion errors when I run this, each of them to the effect that:

Error: SSIS Error Code DTS_E_OLEDBERROR. An OLE DB error has occurred. Error code: 0x80004005. An OLE DB record is available. Source: "Microsoft SQL Native Client" Hresult: 0x80004005 Description: "Invalid character value for cast specification". An OLE DB record is available. Source: "Microsoft SQL Native Client"

I don't understand why this is happening... I've succesfully run similar scenarios with other packages, ie) moving data from one table to another table even though the tables have different data types.

Help

Thanks

Specific Invalid Character Value For Cast Specification Problem

May 25, 2007

Hi, I'm a new DBA and am a rookie when it comes to working with SQL Server 2005. I have been tasked with transfering an Access database to SQL Server 2005. Now I understand to use the import/export wizard, but am having problems fixing an error I am receiving. Here is the error...


Problem I
- Copying to [IS_Shared_ServicesTest].[dbo].[tblResource] (Error)
Messages
* Error 0xc0202009: Data Flow Task: SSIS Error Code DTS_E_OLEDBERROR. An OLE DB error has occurred. Error code: 0x80004005.

(SQL Server Import and Export Wizard)

Here is the short version of the error. I realize that there is an error with the conversion and the error is in tblResource in column Contract Start Date. It is still transfering the column over, and on spot check they seem fine. Should I be really worried about an error? Or is there something that I can do with the Access or SQL server database to fix this?

Invalid Character Value For Cast Specification Error Upon Importing Text File

Apr 23, 2007

Hi all--Given a table called "buyers" with the following column definitions in a SQL Server 2005 database:



[BUYER] [nvarchar](40) NULL,

[DIVISION] [nvarchar](3) NULL,

[MOD_DATE] [datetime] NULL



This table is laden with Unicode data and the MOD_DATE contains no data--not even NULL values, and is giving me a headache as a result. I can export this data fine to a text file, but when I create an SSIS package to attempt import to another table defined exactly the same as above in another place, I get the following messages:

Among the customizations in this package is the flag "ValidateExternalMetadata" set to False. The data itself is surrounded by " and delimited by semicolons for each field, with the header row set as the name of each column. It looks like this:



"BUYER";"DIVISION";"MOD_DATE"
"108 Joon-Hyn Kim";"TAD";""
"109 Kang-Soo Do";"TAD";""
"FS07 John Smith";"TAD";""

...



Can anyone suggest a course of action on how to handle the error when the MOD_DATE field is completely empty?



Thanks in advance,

Jonathan

BCP Error Invalid Character Value For Cast Specif

I'm usung bcp to move data from one table to another. 202 million rows. The source/original table had 32 fields. The new table has 33 fields. I added a PK column to the destination/new table.

Invalid Authorization Specification

Jun 9, 2004

Hello,

I have a web application (ISAPI) that accesses a SQL Server 2000 (sp3) database in the same machine as the Web Server (IIS 6). Windows 2003 Standard Edition is the operating System. So, when users access the aplication through the web it runs ok until display the error message "Invalid authorization specification" or, sometimes, another message about failure to inform ODBC DSN, although I dont use ODBC.

When the error occurs, the user press F5 in the browser and the operation goes ok. It's an intermitent and curious error.

Can somebody help me?

Thanks in advance.

Invalid Authorization Specification

Apr 23, 2007

Hi,

We are testing our product on Windows Vista with SQL Server 2005 SP2 and are encountering an "invalid authorization specification". We make the connection through a Windows service using a standard ADO connection. I have tried changing the provider in the connection string to SQLNCLI without any success. The application is written in Delphi 5 and has worked on previous versions of Windows running SQL Server 2005.

Thanks.

'Invalid Authorization Specification' From IDBInitialize::Initialize (c++)

Nov 13, 2006

Hi

I've been trying to connect to my local SQL Server instance (SQL Server 2005) using the SQLNCLI interface from c++ without success. I consistently receive an 'Invalid authorization specification' error (SQL state 28000 and SQL error number 0) when I call IDBInitialize::Initialize to connect to the database. I was hoping someone here could shed some light on this and help me out.

The strange thing is that I get no error if I leave the user blank (L"" in vValue.bstrVal) and try to connect. Also, IDBProperties::SetProperties returns 0 when the user is blank but 40eda when the user is set. This seems to be a message from the pipeline facility but I haven't found the description of the code (0xeda).

The user in the database is configured with no password and I can successfully connect to the server and open the database using that user through Management Studio.

I've also tried using the SQLOLEDB provider with the same results.

Suspecting that I'm setting the properties wrong I include a code snippet below showing how I'm setting the properties:

for (int i = 0; i < sizeof(dbprop) / sizeof(dbprop[0]); i++)
VariantInit(&dbprop[ i ].vValue);

// Server name
dbprop[0].dwPropertyID = DBPROP_INIT_DATASOURCE;
dbprop[0].vValue.vt = VT_BSTR;
dbprop[0].vValue.bstrVal = SysAllocString(L"localhost");
dbprop[0].dwOptions = DBPROPOPTIONS_REQUIRED;
dbprop[0].colid = DB_NULLID;

// Database
dbprop[1].dwPropertyID = DBPROP_INIT_CATALOG;
dbprop[1].vValue.vt = VT_BSTR;
dbprop[1].vValue.bstrVal = SysAllocString(L"test");
dbprop[1].dwOptions = DBPROPOPTIONS_REQUIRED;
dbprop[1].colid = DB_NULLID;

// Username
dbprop[2].dwPropertyID = DBPROP_AUTH_INTEGRATED;
dbprop[2].vValue.vt = VT_BSTR;
dbprop[2].vValue.bstrVal = SysAllocString(L"jph");
dbprop[2].dwOptions = DBPROPOPTIONS_REQUIRED;
dbprop[2].colid = DB_NULLID;

Cheers,

I convert the db to 2000, and now when I repoint the software to the 2000 db, I get "Invalid Authorization Specification" when I try to open the connection. The connection string is:Dim conn As ADODB.ConnectionSet conn = New ADODB.Connectionconn.Open "Provider=SQLOLEDB" & _            ";Data Source=" & sServer & _            ";Initial Catalog=" & sDB & _            ";User Id=" & goProcess.UserID & _            ";Password=" & goProcess.Password & ";"All of the variables are filled out correctly, when I go against a 6.5 it works, Sql Server 2000 doesn't.

[Microsoft][ODBC Text Driver] In The File Specification '...', The Col1 Option Is Invalid.

Mar 23, 2007

I'm trying to connect to a tab-delimited text file using the ODBC data access. I set it up using Administrative Tools - Data Sources (ODBC) from the start menu, and clicked the 'Guess' button under Define Format.

The schema it created looks like this:

[cims_output_data.txt]
ColNameHeader=True
Format=TabDelimited
MaxScanRows=0
CharacterSet=OEM
Col1=SIMNAME
Col2=TIMESTAMP
Col3=SIMTYPE
Col4=REGION
Col5=SECTOR
....etc.

It looks OK, but if I go back to Define in Administrative Tools and try to review it, I get a similar error message:

Ini File (or Registry) C:Program FilesCIMSschema.ini is corrupt.
Section: cims_output_data.txt, Key: Col1.

Has anyone seen this before? There is nothing on MSDN as far as I could find. I read on another forum that if you replace the label 'Col1' with 'Col' the problem is solved but it still reports that the schema is corrupt when I try to open it in Administrative Tools.

Bill.

Invalid Char Value Cast Spec Error

Nov 15, 2007

First, I hope this is in the correct spot.

I'm trying to build a SS 2005 db from a Sqlbase database and I have coded a program to bring over the data and insert. The problem I'm having is that on some of the tables, I'm getting an "Invalid character value for cast specification" error on an insert. I've found the offending row and discovered that it's an integer that is null in the source table.

The weirdness is, that in SqlServer, it is defined as an "int" column that can be null. I can insert the row through both Management console (connected natively) and through a sql utility from Sqlbase/Gupta (called sqltalk) connected thru ODBC. The problem is when I try the insert through OLEDB within the application, that's when I get the error. I changed the value from null to zero in the source table then it works. I think there must be a "set **** on" on the connection that I'm missing if I can enter the SAME data using Management console but I'm not sure what that is. I don't want to have to find ALL occurences of null integers in my entire database just to insert it into SqlServer.

Has anyone else had this problem??

Passing GUID Into Dtexec, Invalid Cast To A String Variable. Solution??

Oct 4, 2006

I am getting an invalid cast specification when I call dtexec and try to /SET a user variable within the package that is defined as a string data type. Is there any solution to this? I have tried passing the GUID with {} w/o {} w/ '' w/ "" etc.. many variations... and still get an invalid cast specification. Is there a data type that I need to set the User variable to besides String? The User Variable is used to Select records from a SQL data source where the GUID is stored. I do not have an option of GUID data type for a User Variable.

Thanks for any help! Aaron B.

Invalid Character In A Report

Jan 5, 2007

Hi!

Trying to generate a report (using WebForm ReportViewer, from dynamically created RDL report and SQL Server 2005 OLAP cube), if a database field contains control characters (code < 0x20), Reporting Services generate following message:

' ', hexadecimal value 0x02, is an invalid character. Line 1, position 2376.

Is it possible to ignore that? I don't care if browser shows an octopus, the report must work.

Thanks, Andrei.

CLR Function - Invalid Character In The Given Encoding

Dec 18, 2006

Hello!



I wrote a CLR function, which is receiving some XML parameters. In certein situations it gives me the following error message:


Msg 6522, Level 16, State 1, Line 58
A .NET Framework error occurred during execution of user-defined routine or aggregate "svmScale":
System.Xml.XmlException: Invalid character in the given encoding. Line 1, position 27.
System.Xml.XmlException:

The call:

declare @data xml, @param xml

set @data = '<root>
<d>
<y>3.950000000000000e+002</y>
<v>3.896900000000000e+004</v>
<v>3.950000000000000e+002</v>
<v>0.000000000000000e+000</v>
<v>0.000000000000000e+000</v>
<v>0.000000000000000e+000</v>
<v>1.517142857142857e+001</v>
<v>1.027035714285714e+003</v>
<v>1.241071428571428e+000</v>
<v>5.185714285714286e+000</v>
</d></root>'


set @data = dbo.svmScale(@data, 1, 0.5, 0.5)


If I cahnage one of the zeros in the given tag, the error message disappears. If i cut the given tag, the error message disappears. If I cut the given tag, and then paste the previous one in place of it, the error message APPEARS. So my conclusion is, that any tag can be wrong on a specific position in the XML. This makes me wonder.

Another wonderfull thing is, that if I take this CLR function, and the same TSQL code, and I do run it on my notbook with my SQL Express, no error message. But if I try to use it on the server, with SQL 2005 it drops me this error message. The resulting XML is coming from an SELECT FOR XML AUTO, so i suspect it not having illegal characters inside. This is probably true, becouse the above replace procedure can make the message disapear.


The server:
Product: Microsoft SQL Server Enterprise Edition
Op System: Microsoft Windows NT 5.2 (3790)
Platform: NT INTEL X86
Version: 9.00.3027.00

I would be very greatul for any suggestions.

Invalid Non-ASCII Character Conversion Over JDBC

Jun 19, 2006

Hi,

I'm working on a database conversion from Sybase to SQL Server 2005 and have hit a wall with a character conversion problem when reading non-ASCII characters (encrypted password string) via JDBC.

My application runs on Solaris and accesses a SQL Server 2005 database via the Microsoft JDBC driver. The server was unfortunately specified as having a SQL_Latin1_General_CP1_CI_AS collation at installation time, and the database being accessed has taken this default. After creation the data was migrated across via DTS.

The invalid character is a dagger ' '. When read over JDBC it is converted to a question mark '?'.

In my original environment a Sybase database was accessed via JDBC driver from Solaris and the correct value was returned. The Sybase database used Latin1_General_BIN as it's collation. By way of experimentation I have modified the default collation sequence within the SQL Server 2005 database, and created a new table to hold the password. I am then able to correctly return strings containing this character from within SQL Server Management Studio, but the same problem still exists when accessing it via JDBC.

I am not sure where to focus my investigation and would be grateful for any useful pointers/advice. To me it looks like it's a JDBC driver issue as with the change in collation it works from a non-JDBC client.

Many thanks

Alistair

Invalid Character In Flat File Or Turncate Problem

Dec 15, 2006



My source is a csv flat file. Currently I use that same flat file on SQL 2000 and SQL 2005.

On SQL 2000 it runs fine and it inserts that character as part of the string (varchar), however, it gives me truncate error on sql 2005. I already use the "Suggest Types...." and my Output columns have the correct lenght (specially that lehght of that column is only 30 char which is less than the default anyways). If I remove that character it runs fine for that column.....

This is the values that I get in my flat file for the trouble coulmn is "ATTN: JON OLSEN â CTRL8 "

And the error that I get when running the SSIS is

[Flat File Source OrderDetail [1]] Error: Data conversion failed. The data conversion for column "Column 15" returned status value 4 and status text "Text was truncated or one or more characters had no match in the target code page.".

[Flat File Source OrderDetail [1]] Error: The "output column "ShipToAddr1" (63)" failed because truncation occurred, and the truncation row disposition on "output column "ShipToAddr1" (63)" specifies failure on truncation.
A truncation error occurred on the specified object of the specified component.

[Flat File Source OrderDetail [1]] Error: An error occurred while processing file "C:Inetpubftprootorderdetail.csv" on data row 6.



Any help greatly approciated.....

Thank you,

Maria

When Opening The Reports Site, I Get A Name Was Started With An Invalid Character. Error

Aug 24, 2006

Hello, I am running out of ideas on how to get SSRS to work. I am trying get this setup with the intention to replace our Crystal Reports server. Currently I have set up the RS Virtual Directory on a Win XP box. The ReportServer database sits on another SQL2000 box.

I can connect to the http://localhost/ReportServer/ on the XP box to display the page the depicts "Microsoft SQL Server Reporting Services Version 9.00.2047.00"

When I connect to the http://localhost/Reports/, I get this error "A name was started with an invalid character. Error processing resource 'http://leej/Reports/'. Line 1, Position 2" I checked my IIS Virtual Directory properties for Reports and ASP.NET is set to v2.0.50727. I also executed "aspnet_regiis.exe -i" in the "C:WINDOWSMicrosoft.NETFrameworkv2.0.50727" directory.

Any thought on how to fix this? I hate to let this blocker deters us from deploying SSRS.

Thanks,

John

I have a table that contains file paths as

I tried

SELECT DISTINCT left(Source, charindex('', Source)- 0) AS String

But that removes everything after the first and I need it to return all data before the last
