Error Description:External table is not in the expected format
Contex:Error calling open rowset on the provider What should I do?

Welcome to the forum! I believe this is a datatype issue. Make sure that all the datatypes in your SQL Server table match the data type and length of the incoming data.
Also as you are using paradox I would check whether latest drivers are installed or used here for paradox. Satya SKJ
