Based on what little information you provided, my guess is it's a problem with your SQL code.

I am getting this error right now. This seems to be caused by a MODIFY FILE os a MS SQL Server DB. I am matching on a unique Identifier column, "ENTITYID".

The code is something like this:

MODIFY FILE CRMLISTMEMBER
FIXFORM FROM HOLDC1

MATCH LISTNAME ENTITYID
ON MATCH UPDATE LISTNAMESORT BUSINESSUNITNAME USERID
ON NOMATCH INCLUDE

DATA ON HOLDC1
END

My first thought is to modify the table to make the unique identifier an alpha column instead.

Anyone have any ideas?

Thanks,

Francis.

I've seen this one before and I got one today. In my scenario I had a default value for a field in sql server table which was trying to insert a date to a date/time field. I have that value added as a transform now instead of field default. Or I could've tried to change my default value from getdate() to some format convert it right to match HYYMDs type value.

Either ways, it solved for me.

Cheers!
