    I am trying to import a date field from a flat file into a table and can't seem to get it to work. The table I've tried using the DateTime String Transformation function but continue to get the following error.

    Error Source: Microsoft Data Transformation Services (DTS) Data Pump
    Error Description: The number of failing rows exceeds the maximum specified.

    Try to import all the rows to a table by defining varchar and
    SELECT * FROM myTable WHERE IsNumeric(datefield) <> 1 to show the troubled rows.
