How to Handle Truncation Error in SSIS

Truncation is a common issue when transferring data from one platform to another. It occurs when a string of one length is wrapped in a field that contains a string of shorter length, resulting in the last characters of the string being cut off. In SSIS, this can cause your package to fail if not explicitly handled. Fortunately, there are several ways to address this issue.

The first step is to select the column you need and change the data type and length according to your requirements. Then, in the truncation column, set the value to Ignore Error. This will allow the package to continue running despite any truncation errors. Another solution is to route the error output to a script component.

This will provide a description of the error based on the error code. The errors can then be routed to a raw file destination and the error mode can be changed to ignore the error. This will allow the package to ignore rows with incorrect data and continue working with other rows without throwing any error messages. It's also possible to solve truncation issues by converting all output fields into a stored procedure before continuing with your code.

Additionally, if you're reading data from an Excel source, you can fix the truncation error by changing the font of that column to ntext. Finally, you can increase the length of that column or change its data type to ntext. This should resolve any truncation errors while reading an Excel source code and allow your package to run correctly.It's important to note that these solutions should not be used in production environments. Instead, TRUNCATE TABLE should be used, which removes all rows from a table but keeps its structure intact.Truncation error analysis provides a framework for analyzing the accuracy of finite difference schemes.

In computer applications, it's the discrepancy that arises when executing a finite number of steps to approximate an infinite process. A serial truncation error is the error that occurs when a Taylor (Maclaurin) polynomial of nth degree is used to estimate a function.
