I want to rename a file that is a variable to a fixed file name in a specific folder in SQL Server System Integration Services using the File System Task Editor.
Example: File1.txt to Users.txt or File2 to Users.txt. The source file is a variable the destination file is not. Here is an example of the File System Task Editor
HOW DO I SPECIFY A FIXED OR VARIABLE FOLDER NAME WITH A SPECIFIC FILE NAME?????????
File System Task Editor
Name Rename a file
Description File System Task
Operation Rename file
I have a dataflow task that creates a text file and posts it in a FTP share. In need to rename the file attaching datestamp(current date of package execution) at the end of filename. For ex: My dataflowtask creates a file called 'Samplename.txt'
I need to rename it to : 'Samplename20080225.txt.
I think it can be done using the File task...I see an option to rename the file but not sure of how to configure the task to attach current datestamp.
I see some suggestions online, but complete steps on how to implement the above would be highly appreciated.
Does anyone know how to do this using variables? Everytime I try it, I get the
Error: Failed to lock variable for read access with error 0xc00100001.
I also tried it writing a script and still the same error. If I hard code the values into the variables it works fine but I will be running this everday so that it will pull in the current date along with the filename. So the value of the variables will change everyday. Here is my expression:
Hi there, I have inherited a databse and am building a new website to go wiht it. There is a file upload page which will upload images to a directory. I need to insert into the database retrieve the id just added then upload the image renaming it in the format locID(QueryString)_ImageID(retrieved from database).jpg The page has a file upload control and a button. I am trying to write my code behind so that when the button is clicked it inserts location id into the images table retrieves Image id. Renames the file and uploads it to the images folder. II think i need to call the routine from another routine for the button click but the signatures are different, where am i going wrong? or for that matter have i been pissing into the wind for the last 4 hours?

I need to rename this db and be able to set a path to it. This is because my webhost places all SQL databases on a seperate drive. This is a shared drive with alot of other databases. There fore my ASPNETDB.MDF needs to be renamed and have a path assigned. This doesnt seem tro be taken care of in my web.config file? Can some one help in reasigning the default database name and pathway. my other databases were pretty straight forward. Thanks
Hi everybody, I am running DTS export data evry night, where my MyTable is being transformed into MyTable.txt. In my MyTable which sits in sql 7.0 I have a field which shows today's date as julian date ( today julian date is 109). Is there a way to write a procedure/trigger which will rename MyTable.txt on daily basis into MyTable109.txt for today; MyTable110.txt for tomorrow; etc... Kind of stuck with that.. Thanks alot, rudi
I'm looking to use ActiveX in a DTS to copy a file from on elocation to another. I have the code for this (attached below kindly supplied by a colleague), so that's cool.
dim filesys set filesys=CreateObject("Scripting.FileSystemObject")
If filesys.FileExists("D:CreditsCredits_MTD.mdb") Then filesys.CopyFile "D:CreditsCredits_MTD.mdb", _ "C:CreditsCredits_200602.mdb" End If
But what I'm looking to do is go one step further. As you can see, it renames the file to yyyymm, but this is hard coded, and I'm looking for a coded solution so I can rename the file with yesterday's date.
I love SQL Server Reporting Services (SSRS), but it doesnt let me name the tabs when exporting to Excel. The feature is well documented as not being available.
So I figured I can use the cell(1,1) on each tab to contain the tab name, and have an SSIS job poll a file share, open the file, read the cell, rename tabs, rename the file, and then email out the file. Polling the directory and emailing is a piece of cake, but I can't find any way to rename a tab without having Excel loaded on the SERVER. Not to mention instantiating an entire instance of Excel on the SERVER every time I want to do this.
I want to leverage SSRS, and preserve the formatting of the excel file, which is why I don't just dump the data in with SSIS to begin with.
Hello Experts, I am createing one task (user control) in SSIS. I have property grid in my GUI and 2 buttons (OK & Cancle). PropertyGrid has Properties like SourceConnection, OutputConnection etc....right now I am able to populate Connections in list box next to Source and Output Property.
Now my question to you guys is depending on Source Connection it should read that text file associated with connection manager. After validation it should pick header (first line of text file bases on record type) and write it into new file when task is executed. I have following code for your reference. Please let me know I am going in right direction or not.. What should go here ? ->Under Class A
In a foreachloop, I am inserting records into a flat file which is working fine. But the thing is that as the file grows, it takes longer for it to locate the EOF(End of File) of the flat file so as to insert the records.
I have around 70-100 lines written to the file at each loop and there are more than 20k records to be looped. wihich means that at the end I should be having 1400k - 20000k line in the text file.
One solution would be to insert the records at the start of the file itself so that it does not has to lookup the EOF each time before writting.
Another would be to generate separate files and then merge it.
Any idea how can this can be done?
Beside this I have to zip the file and then SFTP to a given address.
Historically I've always written a VB script to copy a file from a sharepoint library. I don't like this method because I have to input a username & password in the script and maintain a config file.
Yesterday I was playing around with using a file system task. The sharepoint file has a UNC path so why not? I created a simple test package with a single file system task that copies the sharepoint file (addressed via UNC) to another network location. Package runs fine locally.
I try running on our utility server but am getting a "The file name [SHAREPOINT UNC PATH] specified in the connection was not valid" error. Package is running with a proxy on the server and the proxy account has the same permissions to the sharepoint site (so far as I can tell) as me.
I am trying to create and later read a data file from a package deployed in SSISDB, but it is not reading it while it is successfully creating the file. The same package when run from the file system package, runs successfully. Generating ispac and deploying in SSISDB is running for infinite time. Is it a permission issue?
I need to build an asp.net/C# application to read values from an Excel spreadsheet. Once the values are read from the spreadsheet, the C# code will do some elementary statistics on the values read. Then the values read and their computations will be written to a sql server database. My manager suggested that SSIS might be a good candidate technology for doing this type of work. Does that sound correct? My only hesitation with using SSIS is that I want to keep the application as simple as possible, so that the code can be more portable. Maybe might argument is not a good one, but maybe someone can help me out here. Ralph
Dear Friends, I store several configurations in the main database of my SSIS packages. I need to get the servername from a xml or txt file in order to get those configurations stored in my database. How you think is the better way to do that? Using a FlatFileSource to read the file and a script to save the value into a SSIS variable? Using the package configuration I cant do that... maybe I dont know, but I can save the SSIS variale in the configuration file, but what I need is to do the inverse, read the configuration file and save the value in the SSIS variable. How the best way you suggest?! Regards!! Thanks.
Is there anyway to send excel file from ssis using send mail task without saving the excel file locally. I need to automate the process which involves loading the excel file from the database and send it to some people.
I am using an XML source component to integrate it into an SQL server data base.My problem is that when I try to open my data flow containing the XML source component, it take much time to open it, so I don't know why beacause I have a very good machine with 2GO of RAM. is it a problem of SSIS with XML files?
