Hi @nkothakota ,


I have come across an issue like this before where the platform on which the SQL instance was installed was causing the problem. The way I got around it was to create a dummy table and write the records to that table. I then wrote a POST CREATE SQL Statement which copied the records from the dummy table to the existing table. This seemed to get around the problem of directly updating a system tables from an external source. Once the Dummy table was created, it seemed fine with accepting updates from another internal table. I know this is fiddly but it got around the problem for me.
