  • There is very little context here. What does your code look like?

    The style of the error message looks like it comes from SSDT in Visual Studio.

  • Hi Balan,

    Thanks for posting here.

    If you could state the encryption process, it would be better. Only simple error message couldn't let us provide some supportive solutions, it would be easy to lead you anywhere.
