CLI cursor fetch error: [Microsoft][SQL Server Native Client 11.0]Numeric value out of range

Hello Friends,

 

SAS 9.3

EG 5.1

SQL Server 2014

Windows 7

 

 

I am stuck with an issue when pulling the data from SQL through an ODBC connection. I am using the below code.

 

proc sql;
connect to odbc (&connectA);
create table test as
select * from
connection to odbc
(select * from [DB - Production].pri.test) ;
disconnect from odbc;
quit;

When I run the code it gives me the above error. When I investigated it there is a column in SQL that SAS doesn't like which is 'ABCDE' in (time(0), null) format. The rest of the columns are coming along fine.

 

What I should I do to pull this column along with others without erroring?

 

Thanks in advance for your help.

I see nothing in your query that calls for an explicit pass-thru.

Use a libname connection instead. If you still got problems, IMHO is that it's easier to trouble shoot.

Hi LinusH

Tried libname which imported the complete table. But unable to open it on SAS.
Getting the same above error.

With a libname add
Options msglevel = I sastrace =',,,d' SASTRACELOC = saslog nostsuffix;
That will tell you what's going on in the RDBMS.
Also check the contents in the numerical columns, perhaps you have integers that are larger than Sas can handle. If this is the case you may need to cast the column to char before importing to Sas.
