Bug #: 50001968 (SQL Hotfix)

SYMPTOMS

Consider the following scenario:
  • You install Cumulative Update 2 for Microsoft SQL Server 2005 Service Pack 2. Cumulative Update 2 is described in Microsoft Knowledge Base article 936305.
  • You create a SQL Server 2005 Integration Services (SSIS) package that contains a Flat File source in a data flow task.
  • The Flat File that is imported to the Flat File source contains quoted text in a column.
  • The column that contains the quoted text has a column separator character.
In this scenario, you may receive error messages that resemble the following when you run the Integration Services package:
Error message 1
Data conversion failed. The data conversion for column "ColumnName" returned status value 2 and status text "The value could not be converted because of a potential loss of data.".
Error message 2
SSIS Error Code DTS_E_INDUCEDTRANSFORMFAILUREONERROR. The "output column " ColumnName" (537)" failed because error code 0xC0209084 occurred, and the error row disposition on "output column"ColumnName" (537)" specifies failure on error. An error occurred on the specified object of the specified component. There may be error messages posted before this with more information about the failure.

CAUSE

This issue occurs because of a regression that was introduced in Cumulative Update 2 for SQL Server 2005 Service Pack 2.

By default, any hotfix that is provided in a SQL Server service pack is included in the next SQL Server service pack.

WORKAROUND

To work around this issue, uninstall Cumulative Update 2 for SQL Server 2005 Service Pack 2.

Note When you uninstall Cumulative Update 2 for SQL Server 2005 Service Pack 2, all other fixes that are included in the cumulative update package are also uninstalled.

In some cases, you can split the Flat File into some smaller files to work around this issue. However, this technique does not always work.
