Hi All,

I am getting the below error and even though there is a TRY CATCH block the error is not captured. ( the job does not turn red , the status is still in green)

Error preparing to read <QueryTransform name>

Could not start (Adapter: 'BOExcelAdapter').>


Trace has the below statement

Work flow <Workflow_name> is terminated due to an error <58105>.

Our job has 2 data flows in parallel that has the same Excel transform as the source .

Can you please clarify if this error happens due to 2 dataflows running in parallel using the same excel transform as source and execution happens at the same time ?

can you please let me know how to make the job turn red?

Hi Chitramalini Lakshmanaraj,

Its not because you are executing dataflows parallel, but cross verify by connecting dataflows sequentially and execute the job.

Please check if Execl Adapter is configured or not.

Hi Ravi Kiran,
Thanks for your reply. I have connected the dataflows sequentially and executed the job . The adapter is configured properly.

After connecting it sequentially I am not getting error so far. But I do not understand why the error was not captured in TRY CATCH block earlier (when they were connected in parallel)
