Bulk Load Copy - nvarchar is not recognized

P: 3
durin importing data via bulk load copy componet appears error 'nvarchar' is not a recognized built-in function name.

I have around 200 xml files and schemas for importing to SQL Server but I have problems with only 3 schemas. They are valid and I don't know reason of this problem.

And next problem , how can I set up in xml schema size of text datatype. After import in MSSQL column has size 1000 chars but I need to change this size higher.In xml schema it doesn't work by defining new data type with higher size.

Any Idea please?

Post the code that contains the error

It seems you are using nvarchar in a way that causes it to be interpreted as a function name and not the correct interpretation as a type.

Thats what the error means
there is no function called nvarchar()

I think the nvarchar type allows up to 8000 characters
someone correct me if I am wrong

Hi Delerna,
I appologize for late answer and thank you ,that you write me too soon. Can you advice me with this problem again?

I have this xml schema:

<!-- schema for importing to MSSQL2005 to database with validating -->

<xsd:schema xmlns:xsd="" xmlns:sql="urn:schemas-microsoft-com:mapping-schema">
<xsd:element name="root" sql:is-constant="true">
<xsd:element ref="row" maxOccurs="unbounded" minOccurs="0"/>
<xsd:element name="row" sql:relation="C_pho"> <!-- table name -->
<!-- elements -->
<xsd:element name="ID_OMEZ_PHO" type="xsd:string" minOccurs="0" />
<xsd:element name="ZKRATKA" type="xsd:string" minOccurs="0" />
<xsd:element name="POPIS" type="xsd:string" minOccurs="0" /> <!-- need max except 8000 chars -->

a this code in C#:

bulkLoad = new SQLXMLBulkLoadClass(); ;
bulkLoad.ConnectionString = textBox1.Text;
bulkLoad.ErrorLogFile = Application.ExecutablePath + "importXMLSupport_log.xml";
bulkLoad.KeepIdentity = false;
bulkLoad.SchemaGen = checkBox1.Checked;
bulkLoad.SGDropTables = checkBox1.Checked;

If chekbox1 is checked, I want to create table against xml schema in MSSQL2005.
But, I need nvarchar(max), yes, navarchar allows up to 8000 character or max, what is about 2 giga characters.

Question is: How can I set 'max' in xml schema?

thank for any advice.
