This is beginning to drive me crazy... I have a DTS package that fails intermittently. I constantly get a variation of the following error message: DTSRun OnError: DTSStep_DTSDynamicPropertiesTask_1, Error = -2147220500 (800403EC) Error string: OleDBProperty 'Column Level Collation Support' already exists in the collection. Every time it fails, it displays this message, only the OleDBProperty is often different. Examples: OleDBProperty 'Network Address' already exists in the collection. OleDBProperty 'Server Name' already exists in the collection. etc. The worst part is that it only fails about 1/2 the time. Most of the time if I execute the package manually, it runs without any problems. All it does is truncate 2 tables and import/transform some data into them. It does use a global variable for the server name, but the rest of the packages in the set are implemented the same way and don't seem to have this problem. I have even recreated the whole package from scratch, but I get the same error half the time, other wise it runs fine. I have searched the net but only found a few unanswered references to this problem. Has anyone seen this before? BTW, this is on a SQL 2000 SP3 cluster running W2K Advanced Server/SP3 -dataninja- "The normalcy of a database is inversely proportional to that of it's DBA."
