How To Import In Special Character Delimited Text File By Using SSIS ?

I would like to know how to import in the custom delimited text file by using SSIS.
For example, instead by using tab or comma delimited, I use this character : '¶'
The reason is the delimited format that SSIS provided is too common such as colon, semi colon, tab, comma and pipeline.
I have the data that the user also key in the pipeline there. So I am thinking to separate the field by using this special character, but cannot see if there is anyway to import in by using SSIS.
Please help to share the solution on this :
best regards,

Field Delimited By A Special Character
Hi All,
When using bcp, you delimit a field by the switch -t .. -t -- tab delimited,etc..
Is it possible to define a special character? In this case this special character is
formed when you do 'select CHAR(1)' ... it generates the  .
Can we do something like -t1 ??? or -t01 ....
Thanks in advance.

Character Delimited BCP File
Is there a faster way to create my pipe delimited BCP file, besides from creating a format file?  Actually, my problem is that I am having issue with the file.  It looks perfect, like:

Code Snippet
But when I load it to DataStage it puts the entire row as one column.  I already specified the | as the delimiter in DataStage.  I think the issue is from the column collation.  If my data is as simple as my example above, what column  collation should i use for the format file? Currentyl, i have something like:

Code Snippet8.0
1  SYBCHAR     0   4       "|"       1     emp_id               ""
2  SYBCHAR     0   4       "|"       2     emp_cand_id          ""
3  SYBCHAR     0   4       "|"       3     emp_statusid         ""
4  SYBCHAR     0   4       "
"    4     emp_type        SQL_Latin1_General_CP1_CI_AS
 I generated this through prompts given by BCP for each column. Then I changed the 2nd column values all to SYBCHAR and 0 prefix length..

Special Character Problems With SSIS Data Reader Using ODBC Driver For DB2

in SSIS I read data from a DB2 database on AS400 using the Client Access ODBC Driver for DB2 from IBM and write it to a SQL Server database. Since it does not work using the odbc driver as data source directly, I use a data reader component with .net providersodbc.
Some special characters were not translated correctly when read from DB2. They show up as ? in the SQL Server target table.

I tried to change the client locale in the ODBC connection properties but it did not help me. I tried changing all other settings in odbc but it still does not work.

In dts I could source all the data without this problems and good speed using the same nodbc driver.

The OLEDB Providers delivered with SSIS do not work in SSIS or I am too stupid to configure them correctly. They are even too slow as I explained above.

I cannot use the MS OLEDB Provider for DB2, because it works only in Enterprize Edition and we only have the Standard Edition.

Thus, only using Client Access ODBC Driver for DB2 with net providersodbc (as bridge) is performant enough and works on Itanium. But how to work around the problem with the special characters?

Best regards,

How To Specify A Special Character As A Row Delimiter In The Flat File Connection Manager?
I have a gazillion text files, each with dozens of records.  The fields are pipe-delimited, the end of each record is marked by ASCII char code 28.


05|11900307|1|CO|Gervais|Neil|NG8880|F|540|0|0|0|T|0|||F|||F 05|11900307|2|AO|MARSHALL|BRAD|BM7843|F|510|60|0|0|T|0|||F|||F

The " " is the Chr(28).  The line above should parse into 2 rows...

**** time passes ****

An interesting discovery - if I paste that " " directly into the row delimiter box, without quotes or brackets, I get two records!

So I found at least one answer.

Is there another?

Best Practice For Ragged Delimited Text Import
I have tab delimited text files which may have optional fields (meaning they can be not present at all) to the right of the required fields that I care about.  It would appear that using a Flat File Connection with Delimited Format (tab) set will choke if it is initially configured with a file that has something like:
data data data

and it then encounters
data data data optionaldata

It chokes.  I know this could be parsed line by line, but that seems silly.  It seems like there should be a way to ignore columns beyond a certain point (e.g. Format "Delimited Ragged Right").
Is there some way to do this with a directly with a flat file connection?

SSIS Import Text File To SQL Server With Nulls?
I have a text file I am trying to import into SQL Server using OLEDB connection.

It's a fixed field text file, ragged right format. One of my columns maps to a numeric column in the DB. In some spots in the file, it is blank, in others there is actual numeric data.

I can't get it to import. If I set the text file column to numeric, I get an error "That value could not be converted because of a potential loss of data." If I set the text file column to string, I get a similar error from the OLE DB provider, "Invalid character value for cast specification"

I have tried telling it to retain nulls in the data flow and the other way as well. Can someone tell me what I am doing wrong?

Hi,On SQLServer 2000, I have a table with a following structure:MYTABLEcol1 char,col2 date,col3 numberMy Objective:------------Externally (from a command line), to select all columns and write theoutput into a file delimited by a comma.My method:---------1. Probably will use OSQL or BCP to do this.2. Use the following syntax:select RTRIM(col1) +','+ RTRIM(col2) +','+ RTRIM(col3)from MYTABLE;My 3 Problems:-------------1) If there is a NULL column, the result of concatenating any value withNULL, is NULL. How can I work around this? I still want to record thiscolumn as null. Something like say from the example above, if col2 isnull, would result to: APPLE,,52) The time format when querying the database is: 2003-06-24 15:10:20.However, on the file, the data becomes: 24 JUN 2003 3:10PM. How can Ipreserve the YYYY-MM-DD HH:MM:SS format? Notice that I also lost theSS.3) Which utility is better? BCP or OSQL?For OSQL, it has a "-s" flag which gives me the option of putting acolumn separator. But the result is:"APPLE ,14 JUN 2003 , 5"I don't need the extra space.While for BCP, there is no column separator flag.You will notice from my inquiry above that my background in SQLServer isnot very good.Thanks in Advance!!RegardsRicky*** Sent via Developersdex ***Don't just participate in USENET...get rewarded for it!

Issues Importing A Text File (tab Delimited) To A SQL Table
I have a text file I am trying to import to a table. This text file is in a tab delimited format. I am using DTS to import the data to a new table I made. The fields are varchar and are set to allow nulls & allow 8,000 characters per field.

The error I am getting is that the data exceeds the allowed amount (or something like that) in col4.

Now I have checked everything in column 4 and nothing exceeds 5,000 spaces/characters combined. I have checked the entire sheet (in excel) for that fact, and there is not one single column/row/cell that exceeds 5,000 spaces/characters combined.

What the heck could be causing SQL to tell me I am trying to import too much data in one column when there is nothing that even comes close to 8,000 characters & spaces combined?

Bulk Load From Text Delimited File To SQL Table
I am new to SSIS but i have avg working knowledge in sql. 
My problem is as follows ,I have a text pipe dilimited file in some folder and the number of columns and the name of the column is not consistant. It can have N number of column and it can have any column names. I need to load this text file data into a sql table. All that i want is to load this file to SQL Database with some temp name. Once i get the table in SQL Database, i can match the column names of both taget table and this temp table and only push those column which matches with the target table. For this i can frame Dynamic SQL. This part is clear to me.
Now the problem is , I developed a SSIS pacakge to push the text file to SQL Table. I am able to do this. But if i change the column names or added new column SSIS is not able to push the new columns. Is this functionality available in SSIS, is it can be dynamic like this?
I hope i am clear with my prob... if need any clarification please let me know
thanks in advance

'UPDATE ' + @TABLE + ' SET '+ @FIELD + '  =  '''+ @VALUE +'''
well It works fine until @Value contains quotation for instance @value = O'hare Airport
results in termination of the statement because of single quote after O in O'Hare. Is there any way I can see it works
Also suppose if its updating a field which can be say 10 charcters long and when @value has say 15 characters, it terminates. Is there anyway i can avoid this.

Patindex To Find Special Character And Next 6 Digits
I am creating a view to pull data for a UPS integration I am doing. I currently have this view where I pull my data from. All is well accept for my PATINDEX,

Currently I have this PATINDEX So when a user puts this into delivery instructions "#999999" UPS_FINAL returns 999999 which is good for me to use.

BCP Import Text File With Blank Line At End Of File
I am trying to bcp a text file that is written out of a Javaapplication. The text file has important order information that I needto bcp into a SQL Server 2000 database. The problem is that whenrecords are written out by the Java application the last item in eachrecord has a new line character attached to it so that a new line isstarted for the next record. BCP gives me an error and doesn't importanything if there is this blank line at the end of my text file. If Idelete the last blank line then my text file imports without anyissues. Anyone have any ideas how I can fix this issue?Thanks,Eric

Text File Import With DTS
Does anyone know if it's possible to use the wizard or DTS Designer toaccept a source file with the following simplified format:<field1label>: <record1field1value><field2label>: <record1field2value>- - - - - - -<fieldNlabel>: <record1fieldNvalue><field1label>: <record2field1value><field2label>: <record2field2value>etc.i.e. each input record is delimited by {LF}{LF}, and each column by {LF}. Orwill it be necessary to write a Perl script (say) to convert it first into a..csv file?Thanks,Dave--************************************************** **********************Dave Stone e-mail: Join Bytes!Computing Services Telephone: +44 131-650-3314University of Edinburgh Internal ext: 503314Main Library, George Square FAX: 0131-650-3308Edinburgh EH8 9LJ************************************************** **********************

Text File Import
Quick advice question. I import lots of text files -- many with 50 plus data columns. Few come with a table layout other than perhaps the first row having a set of column names.

When I go to pull them into SQL server the columns default to varchar 8000. Is anyone aware of a tool (as a part of SQL Server or otherwise) that can scan a column of data and recommend a data type and size.

Appreciate any recommendations.

DTS Import From A Text File
Hi All,
I'm having a problem in importing an Excel file into SQL server 2000.Here is the scenario with my data.
One of the column has got the mixed data which is putting null's in the SQL server table in some rows.I found in the MSFT Technet that it is a bug in SQL server 7.0/2000.The workaround for it ( according to MSFT ) is to get the data into text file and import into SQL server.
Now the question is , my data contains some currency fields and numeric fields in addition to the char and date fields. When I'm importing the table using DTS wizard , it is failing. I'm trying to use conversion functions like cdate and clng etc . Still the DTS is failing.
What I noticed is when I try to import into a table with data type varchar for all columns, it is working fine.But the data is of no use.
I would appreciate if any one can help me out in solving this problem.
