Problems Creating Error File When Using Bulk Insert Or BCP From Xp_cmdshell.

Mar 13, 2006

BCP thru xp_cmdshell from stored procedure:

EXEC sp_configure 'show advanced options', 1;

RECONFIGURE

EXEC sp_configure 'xp_cmdshell', 1;

RECONFIGURE

EXEC xp_cmdshell 'bcp database.dbo.table in c:scheduled.csv -S SERVERSQLEXPRESS -T -t, -r
-c -e "error.txt"';

This is returning the following error code.  I even tried placing the command in a seperate command file and calling that with no success.  If I run this from the command line the error file generation does work.

=================================================================

SQLState = HY000, NativeError = 0

Error = [Microsoft][SQL Native Client]Unable to open BCP error-file

=================================================================

Error message when using BULK INSERT as follows:

BULK INSERT database.dbo.table from 'c:unscheduled.csv' with

(FIELDTERMINATOR = ',', ERRORFILE = 'c:error.txt');

Returns the following error message:

=================================================================

Msg 4861, Level 16, State 1, Procedure pro_cedure, Line 9

Cannot bulk load because the file "c:error.txt" could not be opened. Operating system error code 80(The file exists.).

Msg 4861, Level 16, State 1, Procedure pro_cedure, Line 9

Cannot bulk load because the file "c:error.txt.Error.Txt" could not be opened. Operating system error code 80(The file exists.).

=================================================================

 

The Bulk Insert actually creates a empty error.txt file (0kb) and never preforms the insert, I can not find any examples of anyone using the -ERRORFILE switch on BULK INSERT.  Prolly some default security setting to allow file creation/modification I am missing.  Anyone help me out?  Thanks.

BULK INSERT ERROR Using Format File - Bulk Load Data Conversion Error

Jun 29, 2015

I'm trying to use Bulk insert for the first time and getting the following error. I think it might have something to do with my Format File and from the error msg there's a conversion error for the first column. In my database the Field is nvarchar(6) so my best guess is to use SQLNChar for the first column. I've checked the end of each line is CR LF therefore the is correct for line 7 right?

Msg 4863, Level 16, State 1, Line 1
Bulk load data conversion error (truncation) for row 1, column 1 (ASXCode).
Msg 7399, Level 16, State 1, Line 1
The OLE DB provider "BULK" for linked server "(null)" reported an error. The provider did not give any information about the error.
Msg 7330, Level 16, State 2, Line 1
Cannot fetch a row from OLE DB provider "BULK" for linked server "(null)".

BULK

Bulk Insert Task - Error File

Oct 11, 2007

Using BCP or BULK INSERT you can specify an Error File (-e and ERRORFILE). However this does not seem to be exposed in SSIS via the Bulk Insert Task.

Does anyone know if I'm missing something and the Property is called something else or if can be accessed via script?

Cheers,

Error When I Try To Bulk Insert With A Format File

Oct 1, 2007



Msg 4862, Level 16, State 1, Server PATH-SQLDEV, Line 2
Cannot bulk load because the file "c:DATABATCHBCPFormat.fmt" could not be read. Operating system error code (null).

Above is the error I get. The problem is I do not know what is causing this error. It occurs when I attempt to use SQLCMD with bulk insert.

I am using SQLserver 2005 and I have a similar set up in a test database that works, why this format file does not is beyond me, but my experience is when the format file has an error in it, such as a mispelled datatype or a incorrect column number, the error will zero in on that, rather then declare the entire file unreadable. Furthermore if I go into the file, change something so where it is incorrect (like a column number) it will zero in on that error. So I know that the format file can be read. If I knew what this error was all about I would at least know where to begin in fixing it. I have also tried using a very small sample file for the data being inserted. Same error.

Please help

Bulk Insert Error File Does Not Exist

Oct 25, 2006

Hello

I am trying to bulk insert a text file into SQL 2005 table. When I execute the bulk insert I get the error

"Msg 4860, Level 16, State 1, Line 1. Cannot bulk load. The file "\ENDUSER-SQLEnduserTextB1020063.txt" does not exist."

The text file that it is saying does not exist I recently created thru my code. I can open the file but only when I rename the file will the Bulk Insert work. After creating the text file I am moving it to the server that SQL server is running on. Also if I run sp_FileExists it also says the file does not exist unless again I rename the file then this stored procedure recognizes the file. I dont' know if I have a permission issue or what is the problem. Any help would be appreiated.

Thanks

Chris

Error Using Bulk Insert On A Comma Delimited File

Mar 18, 2008

I am having a problem using the Bulk Insert task. I am getting the msg:
SSIS package "Package.dtsx" starting.
Error: 0xC002F304 at Bulk Insert Task, Bulk Insert Task: An error occurred with the following error message: "You do not have permission to use the bulk load statement.".
Task failed: Bulk Insert Task
SSIS package "Package.dtsx" finished: Success.

I have been granted ownership of the database. I also tried in one of my old databases that I just finished
developing and I got the same msg.

The file I am importing is comma delimited. I am importing it into a table that has 50 bytes allocation for each field (the max input field size is 40 bytes).

The connection is solid;
Format = ‚ÄúSpecify‚Ä?
RowDelimiter = {CR}{LF}
columnDelimiter = Comma {,}

No other options are set.

The data looks like:
"tstLName","tstFname","000 N Tst DR","IDAHO sp","ID","00000000",

Any ideas why I am getting this message?

Error: 0xC002F304 At Bulk Insert Task, Bulk Insert Task: An Error Occurred With The Following Error Message: Cannot Fetch A Row

Apr 8, 2008


I receive the following error message when I try to use the Bulk Insert Task to load BCP data into a table:


Error: 0xC002F304 at Bulk Insert Task, Bulk Insert Task: An error occurred with the following error message: "Cannot fetch a row from OLE DB provider "BULK" for linked server "(null)".The OLE DB provider "BULK" for linked server "(null)" reported an error. The provider did not give any information about the error.The bulk load failed. The column is too long in the data file for row 1, column 4. Verify that the field terminator and row terminator are specified correctly.Bulk load data conversion error (overflow) for row 1, column 1 (rowno).".

Task failed: Bulk Insert Task

In SSMS I am able to issue the following command and the data loads into a TableName table with no error messages:
BULK INSERT TableName
FROM 'C:DataDbTableName.bcp'
WITH (DATAFILETYPE='widenative');


What configuration is required for the Bulk Insert Task in SSIS to make the data load? BTW - the TableName.bcp file is bulk copy file as bcp widenative data type. The properties of the Bulk Insert Task are the following:
DataFileType: DTSBulkInsert_DataFileType_WideNative
RowTerminator: {CR}{LF}

Any help getting the bcp file to load would be appreciated. Let me know if you require any other information, thanks for all your help.

SSIS BULK INSERT Error: File Format Doest Not Exist

Apr 11, 2007

My colleague is working on bulk insert task from SSIS and since the data file does not contain any valid delimeter one of the suggestion he got is to use a file format to address the issue. Thus a bcp command is used to generate the format file, as per below.



bcp <database name>.dbo.<table name> format nul -T -S <server name> -n -f out.fmt



The file file format was generated, from the data flow we added the BULK INSERT task and set the properties accordingly including the File Format and location of the file. Upon running the task itself we encountered the error as per below.



[Bulk Insert Task] Error: An error occurred with the following error message: "Cannot bulk load. The file "C:HFISTAT.fmt" does not exist.".

Progress: The Bulk Insert task is completed. - 100 percent complete

Task Bulk Insert Task failed



Have checked the file and it is in C: drive and it is not protected or read-only. Validated the output file and it is as per expected. Any help would be appreciated very much.

Msg 4820 Bulk Insert Error -- Unknown Version Of Format File

Mar 27, 2007

Hi all,


ISSUE:
====================
In SQL 2005 (sp2) I get the following error when preforming a bulk
insert with an associated xml format file:
"Could not bulk insert. Unknown version of format file"


Question:
====================
I am unsure what they mean by "unknown version". Specifically the
format file in question was created using bcp. Also the entire table
scenario was created from a msdn example.


Any ideas? have you seen this before?


NOTE: i can reproduce this issue outside the example but will refer to
msdn considering it is simple and easily reproducible.


Scenario
====================
I can reproduce this error with the BULK INSERT example discussed on
msdn (example A)
http://msdn2.microsoft.com/en-us/library/ms191234.aspx


TO REPRODUCE:


* In short the table structure is:
Person (Age int, FirstName varchar(20), LastName varchar(30))


* Data File Template:
Age<tab>Firstname<tab>Lastname<return>


* xml file format from bcp (and described on msdn)

Csv File Import: Bulk Insert Data Conversion Error (type Mismatch)

Sep 27, 2004

Hi,

Iam trying to import data from a csv file into my table in SQL Server 2000. My table is called as temp_table and consists of 3 fields.

column datatype
-------- -----------
program nvarchar(20)
description nvarchar(50)
pId int

pId has been set to primary key with auto_increment.

My csv file has 2 columns of data and it looks like follows:

program, description
"prog1", "this is program1"
"prog2", "this is program2"
"prog3", "this is program3"


Now i use BULK INSERT like this

"BULK INSERT ord_programs FROM 'C:datafile.csv' WITH (FIELDTERMINATOR=',', ROWTERMINATOR='', FIRSTROW=2)"

to import data into my table in SQL server and it gives me this error

"Bulk insert data conversion error (type mismatch) for row 2, column 3 (pId)"

I guess i have to use fileformat or something since i dont have anything for pId field in the csv file to make it work...

Please help me out guys and please post a snippet of code if you have.

Thank You.

Im having some issues with bulk insert.

This is the table:

CREATE TABLE [dbo].[tmp_GA_status](

)


This is the file (unicode):
1|"test1"

3|"test3"
4|"test4"
5|"test5"
6|"test6"
7|"test7"
8|"test8"


and this is the sql:

bulk insert tmp_GA_status from 'C: empTextDumpGA_status.dta'

with (CODEPAGE='RAW', FIELDTERMINATOR='|', ROWTERMINATOR='
', DATAFILETYPE='widechar')



so yeah, pretty simple. But whatever I do I get this;

Msg 4864, Level 16, State 1, Line 1

Bulk load data conversion error (type mismatch or invalid character for the specified codepage) for row 1, column 2 (GA_desc).



So what am I doing wrong ?

XML Format File For Bulk Insert Of Text File With Fixed Length Columns

Jan 2, 2008

Hey All,

Similar to a previous post (http://forums.microsoft.com/MSDN/ShowPost.aspx?PostID=244646&SiteID=1), I am trying to import data into a SQL Table.

I am trying to program a small application that will import product data obtained through suppliers via CD-ROM. One supplier in particular uses Fixed width colums, and data looks like this:




Example of Data

0124015Apple Crate 32.12

0124016Bananna Box 12.56

0124017Mango Carton 15.98

0124018Seedless Watermelon 42.98
My Table would then have:
ProductID as int
Name as text
Cost as money

How would I go about extracting the data with an XML Format file? I am stumbling over how to tell it where to start picking up data for a specific column.
Is there any way that I could trim the Name column (i.e.: "Mango Carton " --> "Mango Carton")?

I don't know if it makes any difference, but I've been calling SQL from my code by doing this:




Code in C# Form

SqlConnection SqlConnection = new SqlConnection(global::SQLClients.Properties.Settings.Default.ClientPhonebookConnectionString);
SqlCommand cmd = new SqlCommand();

cmd.CommandType = CommandType.Text;
cmd.CommandText = "INSERT INTO PhonebookTable(Name, PhoneNumber) VALUES('" + txtName.Text.ToString() + "', '" + txtPhoneNumber.Text.ToString() + "')";
cmd.Connection = SqlConnection;

SqlConnection.Open();
cmd.ExecuteNonQuery();
SqlConnection.Close();
RefreshData();
I am running Visual Studio C# Express 2005 and SQL Server Express 2005.



Thanks for your time,


Hayden.

Bulk Insert From A .csv File

May 5, 2006

Hi folks,

I have a small problem - I am unable to load data from a .csv file into a table in SQL Server. Here is the command I am running:
BULK INSERT CCSProgramParticipation FROM 'c: est.csv'
WITH (
DATAFILETYPE = 'char',
FIELDTERMINATOR = ',',
ROWTERMINATOR = ''
)

Data in test.csv is the following format: (date fields can be blank)
NY580232,0,6/30/2006,3567,396,7/1/2005,9/9/2005
NY580232,0,6/30/2006,14850,462,12/12/2005,
....
....

What I see is the data does get loaded; however, data from the following row is getting inserted in the last field of a particular row (previous row) - it seems like the rowterminator is being ignored.

Has anyone encountered this issue? Please let me know your thoughts on this.

Thanks so much!

Bulk Insert From CSV File

FIELDTERMINATOR = ',',
ROWTERMINATOR = '

Works fine. Most of my csv files have the same number of columns, but some have 4 less. The files contain the same column headings as the full size ones(only 4 less). Is there a way when bulk inserting for sql to either skip these, or ignore the error.

Bulk Insert Of Text File . Please Help .

Jun 27, 2002

Hi ,

I have imported an event log file from an NT server in a test database . The table has been created automatically with some 10 columns as Col001...Col002 ...and so on till Col0010 .
Now i want to copy the data of the event logs to specific columns . So i created a table with name such as Evnt , date , time , server and evntdescription so that whenever i can execute a simple query like

Select * from tablename where type = 'app' , Server = 'test1 ' .
so that i get all the results for that server 'test1 with type 'application' .

The problem is how do i insert that event log file into the table which i have created with different columns names . So that the data with 'App' should go to column 'type , data with server name should go to the column name server and so on ..

I tried all the was but could not succeed . Can i get some help in this regard please through some stored procedures or through DTS , if its possible .

The server is SQL Server 2000 with SP 1.

Many thanks

Bulk Insert Using Format File.......

Apr 8, 2001

I want to use the bulk insert statement to insert data from a text file that contains more columns than the target sql table does. I am using SQL 7.0.

I am using a format file, but I can't work out how to achieve the above. SQL books online (and the msdn website) do not describe how to do this, but it is intimated that it can be done.

Any suggestions ?

How To Bulk Insert A File With No Row Terminator?

Jul 16, 2004

Hi All,

I have a file that has fixed row size of 148 and fixed column size, but the file has no end of line character. I know it is wierd but a client has made the file and refuses to change the format. So I am stuck with reading it the way it is.
In Enterprise Manager, I used the Import/Export wizard and I specified fixed length and it let me specify 148 as the lenght of each line. Then it recognized the file and I was able to read it in.
I saved the DTS package and I can run it over and over again using dtsrun. However I want to do the same thing using Bulk Insert. How do you specify fixed row length for Bulk insert and how do you give it individual column lengths?

Thanks,

Shab

Dynamic File Name For Bulk Insert

Oct 20, 2005

SQL Server 2K

OK, I'm probably being a bone-head here and am clearly in over my head but how do you (or can you?) set up a Bulk Insert to take a dynamic path/file name?

What I want to do is pass in the path and file name from an external process to a stored procedure that bulk inserts the content of the file and then does some other routines on it. I haven't had any luck getting Bulk Insert to run if the path/file name is not hard-coded in the sproc as a string.

The point is to have a master routine that can exercise the process for several different customers and use meta data in a table to inform what file to bulk insert.

Any suggestions?

Thanks!

Bulk Insert From Text File

Feb 15, 2007

I import a group of sentences INSERT from a text file .... test

Insert Into XXXXX Values('UUUUUU','3')
Insert Into XXXXX Values('UUUUUU','3')

Insert Into XXXXX Values('UUUUUU','3')
Insert Into XXXXX Values('UUUUUU','3')
Insert Into XXXXX Values('UUUUUU','3')

Insert Into XXXXX Values('UUUUUU','3')

The file contains 1000 insert (Aprox); I read lines for lines the file I make the insert

In VS.NET 2003 it works correctly and the process consumes little memory but In VS.NET 2005 the pocket is without space.

How I can specify the factor of growth of the database SQL Mobile?

How another thing can be happening?

Bulk Insert, Bcp For Import Log File In Sql

Mar 11, 2008

i have a log file, i am trying to import data from it to SQL in order to analyze the data (able to query on the data), however that task seems impossible.
In fact the log file contains a varying number of column fields (error logged, various types of data logged demand varying number of columns). More than that the fields themself are hard to extract.

An example of data in my log is:xxxxxxxx is some alphanumeric chars2008-01-09 20:16:05,4784E36F.req,10.1.1.26,xxxxxxxxx,OK -- SMPP - xxxxxxx:xxxxx,Sender=xxxx;SMSCMsgId=2028eecc;Binary=1;DCS=8;Data=xxxxxxxxxxxxxx...2008-01-09 20:16:05,4784E338.req,10.1.1.26,xxxxxxxx,Retry Pending - ERROR: Timeout waiting for response from server or lost connection -- SMPP - xxxxxxxxxxx:xxxxx,Sender=xxxxx........



I may use regular expressions to extract the data, and maybe use a regular INSERT to put in the right table. Thus it seems like making a manual Bulk Insert(yeah and it may take much more time), it seems strange, can i use somehow some additional tool (in SQL package or external), to assist somehow.

Thanks and sorry if this is double posted !

Bulk Insert From Csv Using XML Format File

Apr 4, 2008



Hello, I am doing a bulk insert using a XML Format file from a csv file. Most everything works just fine, but my delimiter is a , the problem is one of the column sets sometimes contains a , within "" like this:

value1,"value,2",value3

So when I do my insert it is distorting the column values because unlike excel it is not ignoring the comma within the quotes. Is there any way to set an attribute within the format file to prevent this from happening?
