BUG #: 54907 (SQLBUG_70)


In the ActiveX Script Transformation Properties dialog box of the DTS Designer, an attempt to test a Transform that does not have any destination columns fails with the following error:

Incomplete file format information - file cannot be opened.

The actual error message is returned within a message box after double-clicking on the failed 'DTS Testing Transform Task' step.

The same behavior can be observed by right-clicking the Transform through the Data Transformation Properties dialog box and then selecting the Test (CTRL+T) option.


Microsoft has confirmed this to be a problem in SQL Server 7.0. This problem has been corrected in U.S. Service Pack 2 for Microsoft SQL Server 7.0. For more information, click the following article number to view the article in the Microsoft Knowledge Base:
