Hi all,

I'm importing data in the following format:

1/1/2007 0:00:00;135;6006081;42.00;176400.00
1/1/2007 0:00:00;135;1113017;18.00;82800.00

My error is:

Msg 4864, Level 16, State 1, Line 1
Bulk load data conversion error (type mismatch or invalid character for the specified codepage) for row 1, column 5 (dblS).

My fields are:

[dtDate] [datetime] NULL,
[intRestId] [int] NULL,
[intProdId] [int] NULL,
[dblQ] [numeric] (18,0) Null,
[dblS] [numeric] (18,0) Null,
[dblP] [numeric] (18,0) Null

My Terminators are:


Any insights?

You have six columns in your table, but only five in the data. Drop the last column (or change the data so there is a sixth column as shown below)
1/1/2007 0:00:00;135;6006081;42.00;176400.00;
1/1/2007 0:00:00;135;1113017;18.00;82800.00;
