Synapse Copy activity with Auto create does not work

Sunita Gannavarapu 66 Reputation points Microsoft Employee

Trying to use Synapse copy activity to copy data from Parquet source file to Synapse dedicated pool table.

Target table does not exist , so trying to use the AutoCreate option . Given a dummy table name is the target dataset.

When giving the table name it gives error :

"message": "ErrorCode=UserErrorSqlDWCopyCommandError,'Type=Microsoft.DataTransfer.Common.Shared.HybridDeliveryException,Message=SQL DW Copy Command operation failed with error 'Invalid object name 'dbo.test'.

When not specifying the table name it fails the validation saying table name required.

    Hello @Sunita Gannavarapu ,
    Thanks for the ask and using Microsoft Q&A platform .
    As we understand the ask here is how to use the 'Auto table create feature" . Please do let me know if that not accurate
    From the screenshoot i think you are using the "Copy command" option . Do this fix , please following the below steps .

    1. Select the copy method to "Bulk Insert"
    2. Debug the pipeline and it should work fine .

    Please do let me if you have any queries .
