'ORA-01400: Cannot Insert NULL Into....' Signaled when Running an ODI Integration Interface Loading Flat File Data to a Database Table (Doc ID 1313763.1)

Last updated on JUNE 16, 2022

Applies to:

Oracle Data Integrator - Version to [Release 11gR1]
Information in this document applies to any platform.


When loading data from a flat file into a not null primary key field with an ODI version, the Integration Interface fails with the following message :

Caused By: java.sql.SQLIntegrityConstraintViolationException: ORA-01400: cannot insert NULL into ("<STRING>")


This issue appears after having upgraded from ODI 10g to ODI 11g.

More specifically, when using the LKM File to SQL Knowledge Module, any columns containing ' ' (spacebar characters) are trimmed and a NULL value is inserted into the C$ table and subsequently into the target table(s).
