MDS throwing arithmetic overflow error RRS feed

  • Question

  • We are using SQL server 2012 MDS - we have been getting arithmetic overflow error whenever someone tries to updae/add a new record to any entity. We use auto-generated code in most cases.

    This is the exact error message -

    Arithmetic overflow error converting IDENTITY to data type int.

    How do we resolve this error in MDS? We are using MDS in-built functionality, so wondering what went wrong.

  • Have you checked Seed value and next value for entities? Not sure if it's still valid for MDS 2012, below code could help

    SELECT codeGen.*
    , ent.[Name]
    FROM mdm.tblCodeGenInfo As codeGen
    INNER JOIN mdm.tblEntity As ent ON
    codeGen.EntityId = ent.ID
    AND ent.Name = '<entityName>'
    AND ent.Model_ID = <modelID>

    You would need to run above code against database configure for MDS.

  • Thanks Harish

    I tried this and everything looks alright for all the tables - well within INT limits.

    It is the transaction table (tblTransaction) that might be creating the problem is what we are thinking. Do you know how to purge data in there?
