Hi list,

While using foreign tables during data conversion, I am getting an error.... " Binary data type not implemented" Numeric data is converted but char and other stuff doesn't. I/p tables r from SQL 7.0 to JDE table, on XE DEMO.

Anybody any inputs...

Thanks

I am not sure I understood your problem, Tushar.
You say something about DEMO & SQL 7.0
As far as I know, DEMO uses an Access database; did you create the foreign tables in Access, as links to other SQL Server tables?
Please, elaborate.

Well, I am using XE DEMO on a standalone. I know it uses Access, but what I am trying to do in get some data into my JDE table trhu table conversion. I am setting up ODBC, Oneworld enviornment , data sources and all that. The problem is , when I run my table conversion for which the i/p tables are the SQL 7.0 tables and the output tables are JDE tables I get this particular error. "Binary data type not implemented" .

No. I did not create any links to Access. I setup an datasource for SQL.

I am not sure if it's a problem with me using XE DEMO!!!!

I hope it's clear now..

Yeah, it's clear now ...
1 - I guess you have an ODBC problem - maybe the driver version, MDAC ... sorry I can't help with that, I would verify the KG for the Xe requirements related to SQL Server 7.0.
2 - Do not hesitate to open a call with RL; you never know ...
3 - Until then, just for the taste of playing with TC, could you do an import in Access and then a TC from Access foreign table to Access JDE table? What I did to get an as close as possible to the JDE format table? I imported the JDE target table structure, gave it the i/p table name, populated it and so on. If you have the time, it could be interesting to find out if the Access to Access conversion works ...
Good luck!

Adrian,

I did try out Access to Access conversion (JDE table). What i did was create a file with few fields in OW. I imported my SQL table into access , setup odbc and stuff and it works clean. Haven't tried any complex things on it but just pulling data into OW.

I wasn't able to import the Employee table from Northwind database in SQL 7.0 into Access. It gave me error...field length too small... But i was able to import the other tables. Any inputs on this ? Also anything about "Binary data type not supported " error ....!!!

Glad to hear it!
A) As far as I know, Microsoft has a SQL Server KG; there is also a very competent SQL Server newsgroup (Outlook Express helped me finding it)! Check them out!
Or
B) Dear JDEListers_SQLServer_guru(a), somebody out there, we need some HELP! This week, please!
What can you tell us about:
1- field length too small and
2 - binary data type not supported errors?
THANK YOU!!!

PS Did you identify what field from Employee is generating these errors?
