Dts Problem!

5 New Member
Hello Everyone,

I have a DTS package, which has been working fine for few years. it runs once a month to get information from different databases and save it into the destination database. Now I get this error:

error source: microsoft ole db provider for sql server
error description: could not get the data of the row from the ole db provider 'MSOLAP'.
Conversion failed because the data value overflowed the data type used by the provider.
OLE DB error trace[OLE/DB provider 'MSOLAP' IRowset::GetDat a returned 0x40eda: Data status returned from the
provider:[COLUMN_NAME=[Measures].[The profit]STATUS=DBSTATUS _EDATAOVERFLOW], [COLUMN_NAME=[Measure].[Hours T2]

Any help will be apreciated!

Your source table has data that is not acceptable on your side.
It could be just for example if you have int column and source table has bigint. All this time all numbers where easily converted into int datatype on your server but now one of the numbers is too big for your table and you get overflaw error .
Basically your message says that datatype on the source table can’t be accepted on destination. Try to load data into a work table where all columns are character datatype and view what is not convertible into datatypes on your table.

Unfortunately solution involves some research on your part.

Good Luck.

Thank you for your reply,

The problem is I know that the destination table has numeric datatype but the data comes from a cube on an OLAP linked server, I looked att som values there som was numerics and others '-1,#j' probably a formuler results. and I do this convert(float, "[Measures].[ The profit]"). What else do I need to do?

As I already said.
Load data into a work table where this column is a character datatype and add additional step to your DTS package where you filter out unwanted records while loading data into production table. This way you can have exception table where you will enter invalid records and see what could be done to fix them.

Good Luck.

I have a virtual function in a base class, which is then overwritten by a function of the same name in a publically derived class. When I call the function using a pointer to the derived class (ClassB* b; b->func(); ) the base-class function is called instead of the new function in the derived class. All other similar functions (virtual in the base class and overwritten in the the derived class) work fine, it's just this one function. ...
