I have a table, that has a column which determines the file name. Iwant to export a file and rename it immediately.For Ex:Select Id, count(*)from Mytablegroup by IDgives the following:ID Count1 1002 2004 50Now in my SSIS package, I am able to create a Execute SQL task (Selectdistinct ID from MyTable), followed by a For Each loop container.Inside the For Each loop container, I have a OLE DB source and a flatfile destination. OLE DB source has the following: select top 10 *from MyTable where id =?. I am able to eport file for ID=1. Thenit gets replaced by file for ID=2 which then gets replaced by file forID = 4. So I want the test.txt to be renamed to test1.txt, test2.txtand text4.txt. I tried using File system task or Execute processtask. It did not work. Please let me know how I could make it work.Thank you for your help.

To Rename A File By Attaching Date Stamp Using SSIS

Hi All,

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.

Help Getting Error When Using Operation Rename A File In The File System Task Editor?

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:

@[User::Variable] +(DT_WSTR,4) YEAR( GETDATE() )+"0"+(DT_WSTR,2) MONTH( GETDATE() ) + (DT_WSTR,2) DAY( GETDATE() )

The result:

C:Documents and SettingsmroushDesktopOSU20060818

the 20060818 part will change everyday ie.(tomorrow will be 20060819, next day 20060820 and so on.)

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?

Imports System.Data
Imports System.Data.SqlClientPartial Class admin_Add_Images
Inherits System.Web.UI.PageProtected Sub UploadImage(ByVal Sender As Object, ByVal e As SqlDataSourceStatusEventArgs)
Dim LocationId As String = Request.QueryString(ID)

' create a new SqlConnectionDim NewConn As New SqlConnection
NewConn = New SqlConnection("server=desktopsqlexpress;uid=xxxxxx;pwd=xxxxxxx;database=MYLOCDEV") 'OleDbConnection i
' open the connection
NewConn.Open()Dim MyInsert = New SqlCommand("INSERT into image([LocationID]) VALUES (@LocationID); SET @NewId = Scope_Identity()")
If Not File1.PostedFile Is Nothing And File1.PostedFile.ContentLength > 0 Then
'RENAME THE FILEDim newid As Integer = e.Command.Parameters("@NewId").Value
Dim fn As String = (LocationId & "_" & newid & ".jpg")Dim SaveLocation As String = Server.MapPath("oicImages") & "" & fn
File1.PostedFile.SaveAs(SaveLocation)Response.Write("The file has been uploaded.")
Catch Exc As ExceptionResponse.Write("Error: " & Exc.Message)
End Try

ActiveX To Copy And Rename File


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", _
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.

Can anybody help me please?

Rename Tabs In Excel File Created By SSRS


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.
Anybody have any ideas?

Read Text File From Flat File Connection Manager SSIS

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

public override DTSExecResult Execute(Connections connections, VariableDispenser variableDispenser, IDTSComponentEvents componentEvents, IDTSLogging log, object transaction)

//Some code to read file and write it into new file

return DTSExecResult.Success;


public const string Property_Task = "CustomErrorControl";

public const string Property_SourceConnection = "SourceConnection";


public void LoadFromXML(XmlElement node, IDTSInfoEvents infoEvents)


if (node.Name != Property_Task)


throw new Exception(String.Format("Invalid task element '{0}' in LoadFromXML.", node.Name));






_sourceConnectionId = node.Attributes.GetNamedItem(Property_SourceConnection).Value;


catch (Exception ex)


infoEvents.FireError(0, "LoadFromXML", ex.Message, "", 0);




public void SaveToXML(XmlDocument doc, IDTSInfoEvents infoEvents)




// // Create Task Element

XmlElement taskElement = doc.CreateElement("", Property_Task, "");


// // Save source FileConnection

XmlAttribute sourcefileAttribute = doc.CreateAttribute(Property_SourceConnection);

sourcefileAttribute.Value = _sourceConnectionId;



catch (Exception ex)


infoEvents.FireError(0, "SaveXML", ex.Message, "", 0);


In UI Class there is OK Click event.

private void btnOK_Click(object sender, EventArgs e)





_taskHost.Properties[CustomErrorControl.Property_SourceConnection].SetValue(_taskHost, propertyGrid1.Text);

btnOK.DialogResult = DialogResult.OK;


catch (Exception ex)

SSIS - Data Flow To Flat File - Insert At Start Of File

Hi all,
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.
Any suggestion or help would be welcome.

Use Of SSIS In Reading And XSL File. Should I Use SSIS Or Just Straight C#

I need to build an 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.

SSIS - Get ServerName From A XML Or TXT File Into SSIS Package

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?!

Using .ds File In SSIS

Can we keep a database connection information in .ds (datasource) files.  Is it possible to use these instead of the standard approach of putting the connection string in the configuration file.
Furthermore, when they run the SSIS package from the command line (using DTEXEC), is it possible to pass the .ds file as a parameter?
