Error description

  • A file is uploaded that contains a text field containing values
    that are a mix of alpha and numeric characters.  For example,
    values like "ABC123".  When attempting to update this file with
    a new version, if the same field in the new file contains only
    numeric characters like "123456", instead of treating this like
    numbers stored as text, errors are thrown:
    
    MSR-UPL-2122 Unable to refresh file "filename.csv". MSR-UPL-2116
    Column "ColumnName" has incompatible data type. Existing data
    type: NVARCHAR(MAX). New data type: BIGINT.
    

Local fix

  • Add another row with a value that contains some alpha
    characters.
