Fails to connect to Database

I have a tab within the load script and the whole report fails as this part fails to connect to the Database.  It will connect to the PROMOTION_REDEMPTION__C table in the same Database but wont connect to the CAMPAIGN one:

OLEDB CONNECT TO [Provider=SQLOLEDB.1;Integrated Security=SSPI;Persist Security Info=False;Initial Catalog=vrSalesforceVR1;Data Source=B2CSQL-01;Use Procedure for Prepare=1;Auto Translate=True;Packet Size=4096;Workstation ID=BIC007033;Use Encryption for Data=False;Tag with column collation when possible=False];


BATS:
LOAD distinct promotionRedemptionID,
ID       as Redemption_ID,
    "REDEEMABLE_CAMPAIGN__C",
    'SF Tagged'       as BATS_Flag,
    "VOUCHER_CODE__C"    as barcode_number,
    "VOUCHER_CODE__C"    as Redemption_barcode_number
    ;
SQL SELECT promotionRedemptionID,
ID,
    "REDEEMABLE_CAMPAIGN__C",
    "VOUCHER_CODE__C"
FROM vrSalesforceVR1.dbo."PROMOTION_REDEMPTION__C";


Left Join (BATS)
LOAD ID        as REDEEMABLE_CAMPAIGN__C,
    NAME       as campaign_NAME,
    TYPE;
SQL SELECT Distinct ID,
NAME,
    TYPE
FROM vrSalesforceVR1.dbo.CAMPAIGN;

Re: Fails to connect to Database

If you can't connect to that table then you should get an error. That error should give you information about the cause. Perhaps you don't have the correct privileges to access the table. Or maybe it has a slightly different name.

Thank you for coming back to me.  The error I get is shown below:

Re: Fails to connect to Database

Ok, your screenshot shows that you can connect to the database and read data from that table. Perhaps one of the fields contains something that trips up the oledb driver. The problem is somewhere between the oledb driver and the database. Qlikview itself isn't causing it. Unfortunately that's all I can say about it. Perhaps your local friendly database administrator can determine on the database side what's going on.

Re: Fails to connect to Database

Good morning

I have now changed the Campaign Script to try an limit the amount of data being brought in:

Load ID as REDEEMABLE_CAMPAIGN__C,

NAME as campaign_NAME,

TYPE,

CREATEDDATE;

SQL SELECT

,[NAME]

,[TYPE]

,[CREATEDDATE]

Where CREATEDDATE >= Convert(datetime, '2016-04-01');

But now the report stops at the second tab Outliers:

Re: Fails to connect to Database

I think there is some field in your CAMPAIGN table which is causing this issue. Try to comment some field randomly (ID or NAME or TYPE) to figure out which field is causing issue. Probably this is Oledb driver issue.

You can also try to change the connection string to ODBC and check.

Re: Fails to connect to Database

Thank you so much. It worked.

Was the TYPE that was causing the issue.
