you are working on an SSIS package to load a table from a source system and you get an error “The value violated the integrity constraints for the column error” – how do you solve it?
one the things that the error message should also tell you would be column name. What you want to do is check the table definition of the destination table for any integrity constraints like NOT NULL or PRIMARY KEY. Now once you have that information, go back to your source and figure out if it’s trying to add NULL values in a column that has NOT NULL integrity constraint. Or may be ETL logic is trying to insert duplicate value to the column that has primary key constraint.
Also, the don’t alter the destination table to accept NULL’s or remove integrity constraint. You want to put a logic in your ETL OR fix the data integrity at source. You can use TSQL functions like NULLIF to handle NULL values while querying source systems.
In this post, we saw how to solve the “The value violated the integrity constraints for the column” error in SSIS.
