Problem: Error 0xc02020a1: Data Flow Task 1: Data conversion failed. The data conversion for column "Column 0" returned status value 4 and status text "Text was truncated or one or more characters had no match in the target code page.".

 (SQL Server Import and Export Wizard)

 

Solution:

1. When the "Choose a Data Source" window pops up,
2. On the left-hand side, there is a column called "Advanced". (The wizard only allows you to click on "Advanced" when there is a Data Source selected already)
3. Click on the Advanced, another window shows up, on the right hand-side there is a column called "Msc",
4. Change the DataType in the dropdown menu to "text stream [DT_TEXT]".

[Note] This error happens when you have created a table with different columns containing different Data Type and you try to import data mapped to the column with different Data Type. In the video below, you will see the demonstration to attemp to import data to a table with changed column data type.
