Subj:   Re: Problem with Insert
 
From:   Ken Hansen

John,

I had a similar problem nearly a year ago and am having difficulty remembering the solution. I think it was data format or the number of columns.

You said it works sometimes but not others: was the data content the same or refreshed? The insert might cope with inputting numbers from a character field into an integer field but fail and think the whole source invalid if the first record includes alpha characters in that field.

Suggestion:

As no records are taken from source2 after source1 then try a simple Insert into database1.target_table select * from database2.source2_table;

My suspicion is that the format of data in source2 is not the same as that required for the destination.

In that case either change source2 or create a view of source2 transforming the data format as necessary e.g. cast as ..... Then insert into ..... From view.....
