Export to Flat File fails DT_NTEXT ansi error

Export to Flat File fails DT_NTEXT ansi error

I need help.

I am exporting a product table. I am exporting to a txt, tab delimited. I got the following error;

Error 0xc020802e: Data Flow Task: The data type for "input column "ProductLink" (262)" is DT_NTEXT, which is not supported with ANSI files. Use DT_TEXT instead and convert the data to DT_NTEXT using the data conversion component.
(SQL Server Import and Export Wizard)

So, i wrote a query to change the datatype for the productlink field and it was successful and basically it still said the same thing. Could someone please provide me some insight to solve this problem?

You help is greatly appreciated.

RE: Export to Flat File fails DT_NTEXT ansi error

What you describe is a SQL Server specific problem, and it has nothing to do with ANSI SQL.

The expertise in this area is found in the SQL Server forum.
