Unable to insert data into the Channel database – String or Binary data would be truncated

Dynamics AX
2012 R2/R3 Retail

 

Description:

 

While inserting a Distribution package job like 1010 into the Channel database following message appears and the operation stops.

 

Full error message:

Microsoft.Dynamics.Retail.StoreConnect.Request.SQLHandler.ProcessSourceRequestHeaderException:
ProcessTargetRequestHeader failed due to an InvalidOperationException.

connectionString:

How to troubleshoot the issue:

The message “String and Binary data would betruncated”, means that the data length of a string is longer than accepted
by the field.

 

Validate which field is longer than accepted by

  • Copy your Channel database to the same server as your AX database
  • Change the AX database name in the script attached
  • Open a new Query on the Channel database and execute the statement

 

 

 

Result:

The result shows us that the Dirparytable NameAlias has a record that is 45
characters in length in the AX database, but only 20 characters are allowed in
the channel database.

The solution:

  • You can change the schema in the channel database to accept the needed input
    • Retail SDK/CreateDatabase.dll if done correctly
    • Or you can rename the value in AX to only have 20 characters
