Offline Sync service fails to synchronize data with error Bulk command BulkInsertCommand failed with the following exception. Rows will be retried during single apply. System.Data.SqlClient.SqlException (0x80131904): String or binary data would be truncated.


  1. Schemas of store and offline databases were different. This can happen, when store database was upgraded but offline database - not (or vise versa)

Steps worked for me

  1. If AX version is earlier than R3 - run Database Utility for offline database to upgrade it.
  2. Otherwise modify Offline database schema manually (by running SQL scripts), make sure all offline transactions came to store database. After - recreate offline database (to have schema fully equal to store database)
