Hi, I have a DTS package. It uses the transform task - the source is a Stored procedure and the destination is a flat file. At the moment I can consistantly generate a fatal error that will close enterprise manager but I believe I have narrowed this done to a datatype of numeric. I had about 15 columns of the datatype numeric. If I eliminate one the package does the transforming fine. I had the last column and the transform task will not render the destination flat file. If I convert all these fields to chars then it works fine. Anyone aware of what happens with the numeric datatype in a transform task and what kind of space limits I may be hitting with these columns? thanks!
