Workbench connecting to MS SQL Server "Value cannot be null. Parameter name: input"

Options

Hi all,

I am trying to set up a Workbench job to connect to a MS SQL Server databsae and am getting the error:

"Value cannot be null.
Parameter name: input"

 

I have tried with the AWS RDS instance I am connecting to as well as a local MSSQL DB instance on my laptop.

 

Could you please explain what is the "input" parameter which is null and what value it needs to be set to?

 

I am using

    What version of workbench are you using and is this an ODBC connection?

    thanks for the reply!

    Version 5.0

    Yes, it is an ODBC connection as I can connect using ODBC for IBM DataStage, and I can also connect using SQL Server Management studio on my laptop

    Hi,

     

    I receive the same error message when using the Sharepoint ODBC Driver from CData (https://www.cdata.com/drivers/sharepoint/odbc/).

     

    Any idea what is the "input" parameter?

     

    Thanks 

  • Hey there,

     

    I get the same error when I copy and paste from SQL Server Management Studio and don't remove the carriage returns or return characters.  Try removing the return characters (use Notepad++ or similar) and the disappearing query and error in the title should go away.
