Information about "The structure of the table X is different from the query configured in the schedule" in BigQuery

Have you ever received this error when trying to insert your data into BigQuery?

Don't worry, here we explain why it happens and how to fix it.

What is the cause of this error?

This error appears when you try to insert data into a table whose configuration and characteristics are different from those of the data you are trying to insert.

In other words, most likely you have modified the metrics/dimensions/options or other transfer settings and these do not correspond to the ones you had in the BigQuery table.

For example, if you have a table with 10 metrics and 3 dimensions in BigQuery, and in Dataslayer you want to put data into that table, the Dataslayer transfer must have exactly the same structure, that is, those 10 metrics and 3 dimensions. If it has more or less columns the error will appear.

I have checked all the above and I still get the error, what can I do?

Please send us through our web chat screenshots of the BigQuery table and the transfer you have configured in Dataslayer and our technical team will check it thoroughly.
