    Did you check columns definition with text file?.
    If yes, try to change tab to other delimiter to see if have same error.

    i encoutered the same error and it's strange the problem solved if i put the records (the rows cause errors) to the end of the file.
    the sql 2000 server already installed the service pack 3a but it still no luck on it. any tips and advice?

    What is the compatbility level of database?
    What is the format of format file used?

    The compatbility level of database is lvl 80
    and the format of format file (i guess) is ASCII

    p.s. what is compatbility level of a database?
  7. ykchakri New Member

    Compatability level sets certain database behaviours to be compatibile with the specified version of SQL Server. In your case (lvl 80) the database behaves as a true SQL Server 2000 database. If you've migrated the database from SQL Server 7.0, for example, you will typically leave the level at 70 till you resolve any compatability issues.

    Thanks Chakri, and how about the format file?
