Hi @marwahraman

Can you share the workflow and data with us to look further in this case?

I was trying to reproduce this in  many ways, without success.


Please, let me know.




Your third image shows it all.  You set up the 'bulk' DSN using the 'SQL Server' driver.  You need to remove/recreate and use the SQL Server Native Client 11.0.


Should fix it right up :-) (I had the exact same issue, see for proper citation)
