Schema Retrieval Results in Error

Michael C. Essen 6 Reputation points

I have a Windows Server running DSN Data Sources that connect to FileMaker Pro ( for a client ). My connection works fine in ADF, however when attempting to retrieve table schemas, I receive a "Arithmetic operation resulted in an overflow." There are approximately 100 tables in the FileMaker Pro that I'm connecting to, in trying approximately 20 of them, I receive the exact same error on the attempt.

To add further color, when I setup a LinkedServer in Sql Server to this same connection, I receive a similar error, telling me that Sql Server cannot Ennumerate the Columns. Knowing the schema, I am able to use the LinkedServer to utilize OpenQuery to retrieve results.

Is there a way to manually set the schema so that it isn't checked, or I can manually define the Schema in such a way that it would result in a runtime error, but not a validation error when attempting to create the Pipeline from the data source?

    Hi @Michael C. Essen ,

    You can manually modify the schema, but it would be too much work. I have attached some screenshots, hope that will help.

    Do I have to detail out all the columns in the Table, or just the columns I'm interested in working with?

    I attempted with a single column, we'll call it Name, of type VarChar.

    I created a Sink destination table, with a similarly named column of Varchar(max) type to receive it, and attempted to debug the pipeline.

    I received the following error once the Pipeline executed in Debug mode.
