I have a simple query that is erring out. I cannot figure out why, as it is so simple.

The target data extension has a primary key on contact_key.

Both fields (unsubscribe & newsletter) from the source DE are bool fields.

    from preference_center
    where unsubscribe = 'true' 
      or newsletter = 'false'

  • Does it time out? or does it error fairly quickly? Jan 15 '19 at 21:41
  • 5 seconds or leas Jan 15 '19 at 21:42
  • Less*. Sorry. On mobile. Jan 15 '19 at 21:42

If you run into this error, it's likely your data extension (source or target) that needs be modified.

In this case there was a sample record that did not meet the non-nullable criteria in the source data extension. Therefore, the target data extension needed to have nullable fields.
