"numeric field overflow" only on linked tables...

P: n/a

I've been running a text-to-table import as part of a daily routine for
years and I've just added a few new fields and updated the import spec.
The strange thing is that it works perfectly when importing to a local
table, but once I try to run it on an identical linked table it spits
up a "numeric field overflow" error.

In the past it has imported to the linked table with no problems, but
it's been doing this since I increased the number of fields. I'm
wondering if it is because of a size limitation on importing to linked
tables?

Has anyone come across this before? I've found a few posts where people
have had similar problems, but no answer was ever provided.

Never mind, the data types were wrong - It's just that for some reason
it didnt care when it wasnt a linked table... how strange!
