SSIS ERROR : Overflowed The Disk I/O Buffer, DTS_E_PRIMEOUTPUTFAILED
Hi,
I get folllwing error while SSIS package is executing and uploading Data from Flat Files to SQL Server 2005. This Error goes away when I change my SSIS Package Connection Manager to read UNICODE data files.
Is there any smart way to figure out which flat files have UniCode Data  in the and which is not a Unicode data file.

Thanks,
Vinod

DTS Error: Data For Source Column 2 (‘column_name) Is Too Large For The Specified Buffer Size.
Hi,
 
I’m attempting to use DTS to import data from a Memo field in MS Access (Jet 4.0 OLE DB Provider) into a SQL Server nvarchar(4000) field.  Unfortunately, I’m getting the following error message:
 
Error at Source for Row number 30. Errors encountered so far in this task: 1.
Data for source column 2 (‘Html’) is too large for the specified buffer size.
 
I also get this error message when attempting to import the same data from Excel.
 
Per the MS Knowledgebase article located at http://support.microsoft.com/?kbid=281517, I changed the registry property indicated to 0.  This modification did not help. 
 
Per suggestions in other SQL Server forums, I moved the offending row from row number 30 to row number 1.  This change only resulted in the same error message, but with the row number indicated as “Row number 1â€?.  (Incidentally, the data in this field is greater than 255 characters in every row, so the cause described in the Knowledgebase article doesn’t seem to be my problem).
 
You might also like to know that the data in the Access table was exported into this table from a SQL Server nvarchar(4000) field.
 
Does anybody know what might trigger this error message other than the data being less than 255 characters in the first eight rows (as described in the KB article)?
 
I’ve hit a brick wall, so I’d appreciate any insight.Thanks in advance!

Flat File Source Column Parsing Error
Hello All,

 

I have come across this issue with the Flat File Source when the delimiter is set to a comma.

"""KAILUA KONA,HI""","CA",

In the data snippet above and with the setting of using a comma as a column delimiter

and a " as the text qualifer.

the data will be parsed in this fashion:

"""KAILUA    as a column: 

HI""" as a column

CA as column

when it should be

"KAILUA,HI" as a column

CA as  column.

 

Is there a way to let the Flat File Source to let it know not to parse the data in multiple quotes ?

 

Thank you

Eric Flores

SSIS Randomly Empties Out Column Data While Using Flat File Source
I'm having a problem using the Flat File Source while using the underlying .Net classes to execute SSIS Packages. The issue is that for some reason when I load a flat file it Empty's out columns randomly. Its happening in the Flat File Source Task. By random I mean that most of the times all the data gets loaded but sometimes it doesnt and it empty's out column data. Interestingly enough this is random and even the emptying out of columns isnt a complete empty, its more like a 90% emtpying. Now you'll ask that is the file different everytime and the answer is NO. Its the same file everytime. If I run the same file everytime for 10 times it would empty out various columns maybe 1 of those times. This doesnt seem to be a problem while working with dtexec or the Package Executor utility. Need Help!!

Script Component As Source: The Value Is Too Large To Fit In The Column Data Area Of The Buffer.
In my quest to get the Script Component as Source to work, I've come upon an error that says "The value is too large to fit in the column data area of the buffer.".  Of course, I went through the futile attempt to get debugging to work.  After struggling and more searching, I found that I need to run Dts.Events.FireProgress to debug in a Script Component.  However, despite the fact that the script says:





Code Block
Imports Microsoft.SqlServer.Dts.Pipeline.Wrapper
Imports Microsoft.SqlServer.Dts.Runtime.Wrapper
Imports Microsoft.SqlServer.Dts.Runtime
 
...
 
Dts.Events.FireProgress..
 
 


 

I get a new error saying: Error 30451: Name 'Dts' is not declared.  Its like I am using the wrong namespace, but all documentation indicates that Microsoft.SqlServer.Dts.Pipeline.Wrapper is the correct namespace.  I understand that I can use System.Windows.Form.MessageBox.Show, but iterating through 100 items makes this too cumbersome.  Any idea what I may be missing now?
 
Thanks,

Extract Column Data From Flat File Error Output
Hi Friend,

 
I am stuck with a problem and need your help. As we know, all columns that go to error flow of flat file source connection are displayed as a single column e.g. FlatFileSourceErrorOutputColumn, but my requirement is to extract the first column value from this FlatFileSourceErrorOutputColumn, my data is dilimeted by "|" pipe operator. I have created a script component to deal with this. However if we take FlatFileSourceErrorOutputColumn column as input column in script component, it comes as BLOB data. I wrote below code in transformation script component to extract BLOB data from column in string form and then do a Left function search to take first column out.
 
When I am running this script component I am getting '??????????' question marks as a result in Row.Pname.
 
Can anyone please help me understand if I am doing anything wrong in this script or suggest a better way to take the data out?
 
I appreciate your help.
 
Public Overrides Sub Input0_ProcessInputRow(ByVal Row As Input0Buffer)

'

'

Dim Error_Data As String

Dim Column_1 As String

Dim Len As Integer

Dim Buffer As Byte()

 
Buffer = Row.FlatFileSourceErrorOutputColumn.GetBlobData(0, CInt(Row.FlatFileSourceErrorOutputColumn.Length))



 
Error_Data = System.Text.Encoding.Unicode.GetString(Buffer)

 
Len = Error_Data.IndexOf("|")

 
Column_1 = Left(Error_Data, Len - 1)

 

Row.Pname = Column_1

End Sub

 
Thanks,

Flat File Source - How To Configure An Appropriate Column Delimiter?
Good day everyone,
 

I have a package that reads data from a CSV file, transforms it and finally loads it in a destination DB table.

My current problem lies in the parsing of the input flat file. I shall illustrate it using a small example.

 
Source File:
P;Product-1;Short Description for product 1
P;Product-2;Short Description for product 2
 

Problem:
I configured the flat file connection manager to use semicolon as the column separator. But then I have received some sample flat files where I found that the semicolon might be sometimes used as content of a column data.
 

Possible Solutions:
I have thought about 3 different solution and I would like to get your feedback and recommendations about them.
 

Alternative 1:
Use a complex column delimiter, which wouldn't be used in the data.

Example:
P#~#Product-1#~#Short Description for product 1
P#~#Product-2#~#Short Description for product 2
 

Question 1:
- Is it possible to define such a customized column delimiter for the Flat File Connection Manager?
- If yes, how can I do this?
 

Alternative 2:
Use double quotes around the data, which the Flat File Source Adapter must somehow recognize and trim before pushing the data down the Data Flow.

Example:
"P";"Product-1";"Short Description for product 1"
"P";"Product-2";"Short Description for product 2"
 

Question 2:
- Is it possible to configure the Flat File Source Adapter to work as described?
- If yes, how can I do this?

 
Alternative 3:
Use a Script Component and write the needed code for parsing the Flat File.
 

Question 3:
- Do you have further suggestions/ideas for solving this parsing problem?

 
 
Thanks in advance and my regards,
Samar

Adding New Column To Flat File Source Connection
What is the best way to deal with a flat file source when you need to add a new column?  This happens constantly in our Data Warehouse, another field gets added to one of the files to be imported, as users want more data items.  When I originally set the file up in Connection Managers, I used Suggest File Types, and then many adjustments made to data types and lengths on the Advanced Tab because Suggest File Types goofs a lot even if you say to use 1000 rows.  I have been using the Advanced Tab revisions to minimize the Derived Column entries.   The file is importing nightly.  Now I have new fields added to this file, and when I open the Connection Manager for the file, it does not recognize the new columns in the file unless I click Reset Fields.  If I click Reset Fields, it wipes out all the Advanced Tab revisions!  If I don't click Reset Fields, it doesn't seem to recognize that the new fields are in the file?

Is it a waste of time to make Advanced Tab type and length changes?  Is it a better strategy to just use Suggest Types, and not change anything, and take whatever you get and set up more Derived Column entries?  How did the designers intend for file changes to be handled?

Or is there an easy way to add new fields to this import that I am overlooking?  I am finding it MUCH more laborious to set up or to modify a file load in SSIS than in DTS.  In DTS, I just Edit the transformation, and add the field to the Source and Destination lists, and I'm good to go.  My boss isn't understanding why a "better" version is taking so much more work!

thanks,

Holly

Flat File Connection Manager Throws Error When A Column Gets Added To The Flat File
Hi,

I have a situation where a tab limited text file is used to populate a sql server table.

The tab limited text file comes from a third party vendor. There are fixed number of columns we need to export to the sql server table. However the third party may add colums in the text file. Whenenver the text file has an added column (which we dont need to import) the build fails since the flat file connection manager does not create the metadata for it again. The problem goes away  where I press the button "Reset Columns" since it builds the metadata then. Since we need to build the tables everyday we cannot automate it using SSIS because the metadata does not change automatically. Is there a way out in SSIS?

OLE DB Source To Flat File Destintation Using Fixed Width Columns - Determining Source Column Width
Hi,

I am trying to create a program that transfers tables to flat files.
At this point in time, I have suceeded in created one that creates delimited files.

However, I am now trying to create fixed-width files as you can do with the SSIS designer, but programatically.

Is there a way to programatically determine the width of a column from the source table? I can not seem to find any kind of function or member that stores this information or allows me to retrieve it.

I know what I need to change in order to set a width for a column, but I just don't know how to find the width without just asking the user to provide one.

Potential Loss Of Data Error On Flat File Source
 

I'm getting a very strange potential loss of data error on my flat file source in the data flow.  The flat file is fixed width and the column in question is defined as numeric [DT_NUMERIC].  The transform runs great if this column IS NOT A ZERO.  As soon as a zero value is found, I get the error. It errors on the flat file source, so I haven't been able to use a data viewer to see what's going on.
 
Please Help!?
 
Thanks,

Output Column Width Not Refected In The Flat File That Is Created Using A Flat File Destination?
I am transferring data from an OLEDB source to a Flat File Destination and I want the column width for all of the output columns to 30 (max width amongst the columns selected), but that is not refected in the Fixed Width Flat File that got created.  The outputcolumnwidth seems to be the same as the inputcolumnwidth.  Is there any other setting that I am possibly missing or is this a possible defect?

Any inputs will be appreciated.

How To Append Data To A Destination Flat File Without Appending The Column Names Again
Hello guys,

here is my issue.


I created a ssis package which exports the data from oledb source to flat file (csv format). For this i have OLEDB source and Flat File as destination. I generate the file and filename dynamically with the column names in the first row.  So if the  dynamically generated file name already  exists , then  i want to append  the  data  in  the same  existing file.  But I dont want to append the column names again. I just want to append the rows to the existing rows.

so lets say first time i generate a file called File1_3132008.csv.

Col1, Col2
1,2
3,4


After some days if my ssis package generates the same file name i.e. File1_3132008.csv, this time i just want to append the rows to the existing file. So the file should look like this-
Col1, Col21,23,45,67,8



But instead my file looks like this if i set Overwrite propery to false

Col1,Col2
1,2
3,4
Col1,Col2
5,6
7,8

Can anyone help me to get the file as shown in the highlighed



Any help would be appreciated .

Thanks

Error: Unable To Retrieve Column Information From The Data Source
Hi,

I am trying to set up a data flow task. The source is "SQL Command" which is
a stored procedure. The proc has a few temp tables that it outputs the final
resultset from. When I hit preview in the ole db source editor, I see the
right output. When I select the "Columns" tab on the right, the "Available
External Column List" is empty. Why don't the column names appear? What is
the work around to get the column mappings to work b/w source and
destination in this scenario.
 
 
In DTS previously, you could "fool" the package by first compiling the
stored procedure with hardcoded column names and dummy values, creating and
saving the package and finally changing the procedure back to the actual
output. As long as the columns remained the same, all would work.
Thats not working for me in SSIS.

Thanks in advance.
Asim.

The Value Is Too Large To Fit In The Column Data Area Of The Buffer.
I am getting the following error on my SSIS package.  It runs a large amount of script components, and processes hundred of thousands of rows.

The exact error is: The value is too large to fit in the column data area of the buffer.

I redirect the error rows to another table.  When I run just those records individually they import without error, but when run with the group of 270,000 other records it fails with that error.  Can anyone point me to the cause of this issue, how to resolve, etc.

Thanks.

Error: The External Metadata Column Collection Is Out Of Synchronization With The Data Source Columns
Hello,

I have a SSIS package with a Data Flow task. This task transfers the data from SQL Server 2000 to a table in SQL Server 2005.

 

I deployed and tested this package on the Test Server. Then put this package in a job and executed it - Works fine.

 

On the production server- If I execute the package through DTEXECUI, it works fine. But when I try executing it through a job- the job fails and it gives me following error:

Description: The external metadata column collection is out of synchronization with the data source columns. The "external metadata column "T_FieldName" (82)" needs to be removed from the external metadata column collection....

 

What I don't understand is, why are there no errors displayed when I execute the package through DTEXECUI.

 

Can anyone help me to resolve this issue.

 

Thanks.

Now, the strange thing is, as soon as I import the same column from an Excel file in which, for simplicity of "text to Excel" transfer I have all the columns defined as "text"(I have 170 columns), the import works just fine. The Excel file is just a straight out import into Excel of the flat file.

The only difference I see between the flat file and the Excel file is that an empty value in the flat file contains a single blank, while an empty "cell" in Excel contains nothing(cursor doesn't go to the right after clicking inside the cell).

By the way, the column in the SQL table is nullable, which is why I thought there should be no issues from an import value containing blanks exclusively.

HELP!!! - Internal Error. Buffer Provided To Read Column Value Is Too Small.
This is the situation... I have a table PST_AVM partitioned by SRC_SYS_ID. It has data in three of the partition and constraints and index on it... Now, this is what I do that causes SQL Server generated and error. Here are the steps:
 
1. Drop all constraints and indexes on PST_AVM
2. Truncate partition for a given SRC_SYS_ID within PST_AVM table.
3. Load data for the same SRC_SYS_ID into PST_AVM
 
At this point the table gets corrupted. I can do the following:




select src_sys_id, count(*) from pst_avm
group by src_sys_id
I get the right results but I run a query with a single column like:


select vendor from pst_avm
I get rows back but the result set is not column 'vendor' is the data in the column left of 'vendor'. Finally, when I do a Select * then I get the this error back:

Msg 682, Level 22, State 146, Line 1
Internal error. Buffer provided to read column value is too small. Run DBCC CHECKDB to check for any corruption.
When I run DBCC CHECKDB, I get a bunch of these errors:

Flat File Source Error
i am importing a file using the Flat File Data Flow Source, it works fine but seems to miss data records every so often (not entire rows, just records inside the rows).  The file has 149 columns and usually has around 15,000 to 20,000 rows.
 
For example, this is a sample of the input:
AccountNum, CancelDate, CancelReason
123~2/2/08~ADC
345~2/1/08~CCC
789~2/5/08~CRC

After the Flat File Source imports the file I get back:
AccountNum, CancelDate, CancelReason
123~2/2/08~ADC
345~2/1/08~
789~2/5/08~CRC
 
has anyone ever seen this or heard of this happening.  It is usually the same column that misses records and this only happens when it runs from a job (in debug mode it always works fine).

Redirect Bad Data From Flat File Source
Hi, all,

I have this SSIS data flow ( Flat file to sql server) that I want to add a step to redirect any "bad" data instead of fail out.

I had the red arrow hocked up to a sql new table to dump the bad data, but the flow still failed.

Here is the first error, and I knew what was wrong. A description field in that line has pipe(|) character in it, which also happen to be the column delimiter in this case.

[Flat File Source [1]] Error: Data conversion failed. The data conversion for column "Column 22" returned status value 4 and status text "Text was truncated or one or more characters had no match in the target code page.".

I knew if I fixed the data, every thing will be fine, but I just want to use this redirect feature of SSIS. Is there a place where I can turn off validation, or do something to make it work?

Thanks!

How Do I Run SQL Commands On A Flat File Data Source?
I am attempting to pull in data from a flat file data source that contains dates in the following format "01012007 10:22" which translates to Month Day Year and Military Time.  I want to turn this into a DateTime format so that I can insert it into the proper column.  I have a SQL statement which will do this (see bellow), but I can't figgure out how to run the statement on the data before it reaches its destination.
 
Can anyone help?
 
The code is:
 



Code Block
cast(convert(varchar(16),(substring( REPORT_RUN_DATE,1,2 ) + '/' + substring( REPORT_RUN_DATE,3,2 ) + '/' + substring( REPORT_RUN_DATE,5,10 )),1) as datetime) AS REPORT_RUN_DATE

Flat File Source - Continue On Error?
Hi
 
I have a CSV file which sometimes contains the odd CSV error, for this reason the odd row throws an error.
 
If I have a clean CSV file my SSIS package works great, but I am having problems getting the package to continue past the rows in the file that throw errors.
 
How do I :
 


Get the package to continue on error, I have tried playing with the Propagate Variable with no joy

Add an Error event, which will capture the error and log it to a SQL table or File Destination?
Any help will be great!
 
Thank you

BULK INSERT Flat File With Only One Column
Hi,

I have a text file with a single column that i need to bulk insert into a table with 2 colums - an ID (with identity turned on) and col2

my text file looks like:

row1
row2
row3
...
row10

so my bulk insert i have like this:
BULK INSERT test FROM 'd: estBig.txt'
WITH (
DATAFILETYPE = 'char',
FIELDTERMINATOR = ',',
ROWTERMINATOR = '
'
)

but i get the error:

Server: Msg 4866, Level 17, State 66, Line 1
Bulk Insert fails. Column is too long in the data file for row 1, column 1. Make sure the field terminator and row terminator are specified correctly.

However, as you can see from the text file, there is only one column, so i dont have any field terminators.

Any ideas how to make this work?

Thanks.

SSIS Flat File To DB Column Mappings
hi -
I am totally new to SSIS etc and SQL 2005.
I have a dts task to recreate in SSIS. I have done most of them and muddled my way through, but this basic problem has got me stuck.
When mapping columns from my file to my ole db output table, I want to map one input column onto two output columns, but it will only seem to let me select one destination column for each input?
I have tried shift/alt/ctrl etc to try to get it to map to both columns but it wont have it.
How do I do it?

Also, somehow my Dataflow Sources tab has gone from the toolbox, and I can't seem to get it back any way - I switched on everything I could see and all components etc, but it is not in there as an option. How do I get it back in the toolbox?

Set The Flat File Column Delimiter Programatically
hi guys,

i am working on a project witch involves creating packages on-the-fly to import data from  txt/csv/xls files according to some definitions on the database.

so far, i have been doing fine.

now we are planning the ASP.net page that enables the customer to define the input file format that will be imported to the system. we want it to have the same listBox as the FlatFileConnectionManager Editor has to define some properties, such as - column delimeiter.

the code to set the column delimiter looks like this:

SSISRunTime.IDTSConnectionManagerFlatFile90 myFilecn = null;

myFilecn = (SSISRunTime.IDTSConnectionManagerFlatFile90)package.Connections["InputFileConnection"].InnerObject;

DtsConvert.ToConnectionManager90(package.Connections["InputFileConnection"]);

SSISRunTime.IDTSConnectionManagerFlatFileColumn90 col

col = myFilecn.Columns.Add(); //.....

string colDelimiter ="|" ; // it actually gets the data from the database... but it is the same thing

col.ColumnDelimiter = colDelimiter;

 

when we deal with the simple characters- "," , ";" , "|" ... we have no problems with setting the delimiter. but how can i set the delimiter to Tab? or {CR} ? {LF}?

i tried to look at the dtsx- XML , and i see that the column delimiter that is defined when i choose Tab is: _x007C_, but when i try to do something like this:

col.ColumnDelimiter = "_x007C_"  ;

it doesn't work. the same happens when I try "{t}" or "Tab".

how do i solve this problem, and enable the user to select Tab as a column delimiter?

Thanks!

Flat File Conn Mgr Column Limit??
Hi,
 
I have a flat file with hundreds of columns.
 
I set up a flat file conn mgr with the following settings:
 
format: delimited
text qualifier: "
header row delimiter: {LF}
row delimiter: {CR}{LF}
column delimiter: comma
 
Now, here's the problem. In the preview screen, it shows only up to column 518 correctly. In column 519, it shows the remaining hundreds of columns all glommed together as one big string, like: "data", 123, 10/17/2007, "more data", etc
 
Anyways, I am wondering what to do about this?
 
When I attempt to run the data flow I get this error:
[Flat File Source [1]] Error: The column delimiter for column "Column 519" was not found.

 
However, the good news is that I only need the first 9 columns of the file. Some preprocessing in order, maybe?
 
Thanks!

Insert From Flat File Where Column 1 Not In Table
Hi Guys,
 
I hope this is easy stuff for you..
First of all i searched the forum but didnt exactly find what iam searching for:
 
I have a File folder which contains 1..n Files of the same type.
The files contain a DateValue at the beginning of each row. I now want to read the first Record of the file - extract the datevalue and search in my Importtable if there are any records with that Date. If there are allready Records with this date i know i allready imported that file and skip it in my For each File Container. If no records where found I want to copy them from the file to the table.
 
So I have a flatfile source and thoght I just make an oledb command task afterwards which looks like "Select count(*) from Import where Processdate = ?. and then a conditional split if the count == 0 or not... but i have problems getting the Count value out auf the OLD DB Command Task because everytime I try to add an outputcolumn i get the message: "An Output cannot be added to the output collection"  and since there is no possibility to map an expression to the result...

 
I tried to workaround the problem using a lookup task.. but that seems to be the wrong way.
 
thanks for your help
bye

Binary Column Or Flat File Best Practices?
I have a design oriented question for a system I am developing.  Because of various business concerns and issues we have been moving towards as desing that brings files into the SQL 2005 system as binary columns in a database.  These files will then be processed at a later time using SSIS into relation model tables. 

 

Normally I would just have the process be files are placed on a FTP location (or other drive path) and a location is stored in the database versus the storing of them as binary rows in the database.  Then later the SSIS package runs using the path information for the conneciton manager.

 

Based on the proposed binary design I have two questions.

1. Can anyone speak to the advantages, disadvantages, issues they have had, etc to the binary storage method?

2. Can anyone make a suggestion on how they would handle the pulling of the file out of SQL when the file is ready to process?  Do you stream it to a file and rebuild it on the physical disk, to then just import it with a connection manager for the flat file structure.... or can you stream it directly into a conneciton manager that reads it like a flat file and parses the file without ever going to disk?  Any information on suggested implementations would be helpful.

 

Thanks.

Flat File Source Error Output Conversion Error With UNICODE Files
i have a weird situation here, i tried to load a unicode file with a flat file source component, one of file lines has data like any other line but also contains the character "ÿ" which i can't see or find it and replace it with empty string, the source component parses the line correctly but if there is a data type error in this line, the error output for that line gives me this character "ÿ" instead of the original line.

 
simply, the error output of flat file source component fail to get the original line when the line contains hidden "ÿ".
 
i hope you can help me with issue.
 
Thanks in advance.

Merge Data From Oledb Source And Flat File
 

Hi All,
In one of my SSIS Interface I have to Merge data from a Oledb source and  a Flat file source.But after I read from the flat file I have do a basic validation of the file for the length of header,detail and trailer records and then process further.The above Validation I am doing within Script Component.If the validation fails the flow should pass out of the DataFlowTask without Initailsing the Oledb source.
 
But the problem is i am not able to connect anything to the Oledb source,i.e Oledb source is not taking any incoming Pointers.
Earlier I had done the same Validation in Control Flow Task,but then the interface was reading the same file twice,once in the Control Flow Task and then again in the DataFlowTask.Which i should avoid now.
 
I hope many of you could have come across such a problem.
Any help on this will be appreciated.
 
cheers

Row Count In Flat File Data Source Using SSIS
 

Hi,
 
I am trying to impliment a SSIS package where data source is a Flat file(.csv) file and destination is a sql server database.
 
The problem is my data source a flat file which consists of thousands of rows which are manually entered, so there is always a chance that in some rows they may miss a column value while entering data which results in an error.
 
Example: My flat file has headers like Sln, Name, Age, Designation. While entering data they may miss age and type it as 1,aaa,Consultant,,
 
Using SSIS package i want to track all row number in the flat file where data is entered wrongly so that i can correct only that row instead of checking all rows each time when my SSIS package throughs an error. I want to get all the row numbers in a sql server database which are wrongly entered.

 
Any suggestions are sincerly apriciated.
 
Thanks in advance
 
Regards,
gcs.

How To Store Column's Value From A Flat File Into A Package Variable?
I have a few flat files that will be retrieved from some SFTP server. One of the flat file will act as a terminal file where it will specify the total number of records expected in each other the flat file.
 
Data in the terminal.txt
FileName TotalRecords
File1        1000
File2        1500
File3        2000
 
So, before transforming the data from the flat file sources into the target destination, i wish to do a row count checking for each of the flat file source to make sure that the number of records in the flat file source is tally with the number of records specify in the terminal.txt file. I'm able to get the number of records in each of the flat file by using the RowCount component but don't know how to get the data out from the terminal.txt file in order to make a rowcount comparison.
 
Can any1 help me on this? Or is there any other way we can do to make sure that the flat file source is alright before proceeding with the data transformation task?
 
Thanks!

Writing Into The FLAT FILE When Derived Column Fails
Flat file is the source for to load the data into a table. I am using "Derived Column Component" for the data validation.
 
"Derived Column Component" Fails then i am writing/redirecting the records into the Flat File using "Flat File Destination" component.
 
It works fine except the following the issue.
 
Issue:
The derived columun value (that cause an error) is not get inserted into the Flat File
 
Scenario: 
the data comes as "000000" and tring to convert to date format
(DT_DATE)("20" + RIGHT(Check_Date,2) + "/" + SUBSTRING(Check_Date,1,LEN(Check_Date) - 4) + "/" + SUBSTRING(Check_Date,LEN(Check_Date) - 3,2))
 
The above expression is working fine, except the data 000000 not passed into the Flat File Destination.
 
Pls advise. Thank you.

How To Import From Flat File And Update DateTime Column?
 I have a a flat file that consists of 2 Columns of data that need to overwrite an existing Table that has 3 Columns of data. The Import fails because the 3rd column on the table is a Date stamp column with the Data Type of "smalldatetime" and does not allow Null data. If I were to delete this 3rd column from the table the import works great but I lose the DateTime column. How can I use the Import Wizard to import the first 2 columns from a text file and update the 3rd column with the date and time? The wizard does not seem to let me update a column unless the data for this column comes from the flat file. Please assist, thanx.

Flat File Name As SSIS Data Source Input Parameter
Each day I receive a file with a different name. For example, the name is filename_mmddyyyy.txt where filename_ stays constant and mmddyyyy is the date of the file. The file is always in the same format.
 
I want to build an SSIS where I pass it this file name. I can write a script to generate the correct file name. How do I build the SSIS so it can accept the input parameter and find the correct file to process?
 
Thanks
