[SOLVED] Time Stamp Java Error

When i check my scheduled flow logs.i see some java errors for some input files.
"java.lang.illegalargumentexception: timestamp format must be yyyy-mm-dd hh:mm:ss[.fffffffff] in java"

I have checked my Date fields in the target synonym and the sql target table.
Infact i did recreate DBMS table operation on synonym to get the same datatype in sql table as well.

I have not idea what this error means.?I am loosing rows in eevry flow becuase of this error.Any one encountered this error.?

Please post how the date fields are defined in the master file for the source and target tables.

Thank you for using Focal Point!

hi srajeevan,

it could be data format mismatch error.

the data that is trying to get inserted is not in the format expected by the field.

got it working.
there was empty strings in one date field like vinodh mentioned and this caused the issue.
Inserted transformation for the date field and passed default date value 1900-01-01 for those empty string.
