Using a list view

May 5, 2015 at 9:51 PM
I have a large list with a lot of columns, many of which are multi line text (NTEXT). I am getting the following error:
"Microsoft.Samples.SqlServer.SSIS.SharePointUtility.SharePointUnhandledException: Unspecified SharePoint Error. A possible reason might be you are trying to retrieve too many items at a time (Batch size)"

I believe I could work around this by breaking my query up using 2 views, so that the adapter is not trying to pull so much data for each row. However, when I add my view to the source, I still see the whole list, and not just the columns selected in that view.

Do I understand the functionality of the view property? Or will the view only restrict the query in some other way?
