COMMENT:(None) JOB RUN:(None) and then our DTS package message that we built give the message that the format file for BCP bulk load is wrong, which is incorrect, because within 1-3 hours later we run the package without problem.

Bulk Adjustments Error
The package failed in the Bulk Insert Task Function(Bulk Adjustments). The DTS package has encountered an error that is related to the Bulk Insert function. A possible cause might be that the data contain column headers and/or text delimiters. Or that the structure of the table may have changed and no longer match what is expected by the Bulk Load utility. The most common cause is that the source file name does not match the name of the source file Specified in the INI file. Please review the error and determine the nature of the problem before re-executing this package.
When we run it again the package a few hours later, the package run fine without any of the errors message above.
The text files come from Mainframe download. My manager and I talked to mainframe people in our office and they confirmed that the files has been transferred completed, hours before the DTS load take place. Microsoft has SQL 2000 SP4 that address this access violation problem, but this SP4 hasn’t ready yet for public because Microsoft still working on the bug of this SP4. This can be a microsoft problem and can be our environment problem. My manager already approved the cost to open call to Microsoft, but before I talk to them, I would like to know if our great and friendly forum here have suggestion. Has anyone experience this or have ideas on what the problem and solution could be? Any response will be greatly appreciated. Thanks!
SP4 is the solution. Luis Martin
