BulkCopy data from source table to destination table with different column type in SQL Server

I’ve encountered a problem when I do a sql bulk copy from a table in staging to the same table in production.

The problem is that the same column has different types in the two tables.

The error is the following when I bulkcopy the data:

The locale id '0' of the source column 'EntityId' and the locale id '1033' of thedestination column 'EntityId' do not match.

But this is not the source of the error.

After strugling several hours, a solution is to use a CONVERT when I synchronize the data.

SELECT Id, CONVERT(varchar(60), EntityId) as EntityId  FROM @TABLENAME WITH (NOLOCK) WHERE ID = @ID

Hope this helps!

Enjoy coding!
