    -21005 is a character conversion error and usually results from incompatible codesets between the server and client:

    $ finderr 21005
    -21005  Inexact character conversion during translation.

    One or more characters were translated using a substitution character.  
    Translation in the reverse direction would not produce the original string.
    Make sure that the values of the CLIENT_LOCALE and DB_LOCALE environment variables are compatible.

    Is it possible the the SQL Server 2005 and SQL Server 2019 are using different codesets?
