RBAR is pronounced ree-bar and is a Modenism for Row-By-Agonizing-Row.
First step towards the paradigm shift of writing Set Based code:
Stop thinking about what you want to do to a row... think, instead, of what you want to do to a column.
Although they tell us that they want it real bad, our primary goal is to ensure that we dont actually give it to them that way.
Although change is inevitable, change for the better is not.
Just because you can do something in PowerShell, doesnt mean you should. Wink

Thanks for ur reply..
You had changed 1,2,14,37,44 as 1,2,3,4,5
But it is host file field order only.
I have to specify sequence order? Because
i am selecting 1,2,14,37,44 filed from table (file) and then load into destination table as 1,2,3,4 and 5 order.

Now also it shows same eror

Ugh... that's what I thought you did... post the record layout for the file and lemme show you what you need to do...
