Error description

  • Customer is trying to use the odbcwrite stage. If the data they
    read in is
    variable length (so there is no upper length specified to the
    field) the job fails with this error.
    
    ##F TFST 000002 15:18:28(002)
    <GBR__ODBC_Write_V1.0_20081212T1538,1> Fatal
    Error: Not
    bounded length.
    
    Now if they use fixed-length data on input it works, even if the
    field length
    is > than the field length in the database (they are using a SQL
    Server
    database).
