Attribute *** is a String, but a Memo type was specified.

Another error of the Day:

“Attribute *** is a String, but a Memo type was specified.”

While importing solution we got given error. This error signifies that the data type of Attribute mentioned on the given entity has been changed and CRM does not permit that.

Only solution for this problem is to delete the attribute.

If this is in a production system then you are in for a whole lot of work as you will have keep the data in some other field/flat file mapped to the record and re-import data so that there is no data loss.
