Error 4801



Message text

Bulk_main: opentable on BULK INSERT table failed. Dbid=%d name=’%.*s’.


Error 4801 is raised when you attempt to bulk copy data into a table, but bcp is unable to locate the target table.

Possible causes include:


  1. Check the syntax of your bcp in command and the target table named in the command.

  2. Verify that the target table exists, and that no other user is attempting to bulk copy to the table.

  3. If you are making a substantial change, such as loading a large number of tables, you may need to increase the number of open objects configuration parameter. See the chapter “Setting Configuration Parameters” in the System Administration Guide: Volume 1 for details.
