Re: Database Command | Supporting Tasks

Hi Venkat,

i think this could be a connection string issue or permissions issue also.

You should verify:

  • there is no single quote or wrong chacarter in the connection string
  • if connection string is well formed for your source database
  • check if the user you are using has correct permissions
  • check if its necessary to add database name in your query (select * from database.table)

Let me know if this helps.

Kindest regards,
