System: FM 126.96.36.1998 Server on Mac using the Actual Tech ODBC to SQL Server.
This is a snippet of the script which simply Truncates and Imports into a native FM table. I do this on other nightly scripts on other tables and it works fine. But this one gives me fits.
Go to Layout ["tblHistory" (tblHistory)]
Truncate Table [With dialog:Off; Table:"tblHistory"]
Set Variable [$e; Value: Get ( LastError )]
If [$e ≠ 0]
log the error....
Import Records [With Dialog:off; DSN: MyData; SQL Text: SELECT ....... ; Add; Mac Roman]
Only when this script is ran from the Scheduler does it give me the Error 3. If I run the script from the FM 15 Advanced client, then it works Truncates and Imports fine. Another person on this forum had this same Error 3 problem a couple years ago but never got an answer so I'm starting a new thread.
Since the error happens at the Truncate Statement and prevents proceeding to the Import Records statement, then this shouldn't be an ODBC issue - but a scheduler one.
I made sure there was no incompatible script steps are in the script or the File Open triggers. I will upgrade to FMS 16 soon to see if things get fixed. I never have easy problems!
