Server: Msg 4864, Level 16, State 1, Line 1 Bulk insert data conversion error (type mismatch) for row 2, column 15 (GLBalance). I'm getting the following error message: Cannot perform bulk insert.

Originally, I was creating the value for the RowNo column in VBA code, instead of having the SPROC create "Identity" values for it.
In such case, this puts your previous question in a different light. http://fortecrm.net/cannot-perform/cannot-perform.html cause I never succeeded in starting a bulk insert ...

But, it keep on says invalid collation for column 10.
Again, while the error message from BULK INSERT is not the best in town, it talks about your format file.
Erland Sommarskog, SQL Server MVP, [email protected] Ok but, using either of them is not working for me. I'm using a format file. Whereof I suspect that the last line is incomplete. If you see the content of format file I've posted, the last column of the file is somewher in between pointing to the table's column.
But that's a hypothetical discussion. Hope that result is okay., Jun 11"Cancer Awareness & Prevention" Health Talk.
