A little puzzle with this Error - Status and PropertyType fields do not allow nulls while other columns do ( there are about 20 columns in original expression but left out for simplicity - these are created the same way ). Any ideas how to solve it?
[Conditional Split Filter Changes ] Error: The expression
on "output "Listing Changed" (885)" evaluated to NULL, but the "component "Conditional Split Filter Changes" (813)" requires a Boolean results.
(My wish for next version is to have better expression editor and be able to see the output for those in dataflow transforms with lets say sample 200 rows)
I'm using a conditional split to discriminate modified records. My expression looks like this: col1_source != col1_dest || col2_source != col2_des.....and so on. I use OLE DB Command afterward to update modified records.
It all works fine if no columns evaluate to null. If any (source or dest.) evaluates to null, component fails.
Any tips how to solve a problem?
It has to work like this:
If colX_source is null and colX_dest is not null --> Update If colX_source is not null and colX_dest is null --> Update If both colX_source and colX_dest are null --> No update
p.s. i apologize if a similar thread exists, I haven't found something of use to me.
Getting the below error msg on my conditional split. I changed the error output to ignore errors and that keeps the error msg from appearing (and everything seems to work normally), but why would it evaluate to NULL?
[Conditional Split - Find rows with balances ] Error: The expression "FINDSTRING(Column0,"OPENING",1) > 0 || FINDSTRING(Column0,"CLOSING",1) > 0" on "output "Balance Rows" (3415)" evaluated to NULL, but the "component "Conditional Split - Find rows with balances" (3412)" requires a Boolean results. Modify the error row disposition on the output to treat this result as False (Ignore Failure) or to redirect this row to the error output (Redirect Row). The expression results must be Boolean for a Conditional Split. A NULL expression result is an error.
I have a oledb source and destination in a data flow task.. I would like to put the records where customer_key is null to an error table and rest of records to a destination table ( customers) using conditional split task.. how can i do this?
I am using a conditional split to evaluate the condition below. It should only send records to my SQL Server database if the PatientZip matches one of the eight below and the PatientCity is not Wichita Falls (you wouldn't believe how bad this is mispelled sometimes). I checked the output table and it has all records for the zipcodes below both matching and non-matching the cityname of Wichita Falls. The table should not have entries for records with the cityname of Wichita Falls. Do I have the code correct or could I have missed something?
I want to use conditional split on a column that has either a 0 or 1 in order to proceed with the workflow on my conditional split command i have ([colnam])==1 but the transformation still grabs all the data in the table whether the condition is 1 or 0. What could I be doing wrong?
Hi, In my Excel file I have the columns Col1, Col2. I want to send those records to Sqlserver table only if the Col1 and Col2 is not null. For this I am using the Conditional Split expression like this: (!ISNULL([Col1])) && (!ISNULL([Col2])). And sending this result to Sqlserver table. But I am not getting any records into the table. But the records col1 and col2 not null exist in Excel file. Is there any thing wrong in my expression?
I am have an ID column that sometimes contains all numeric characters and sometimes contains all digits. I would like to the records with all digits (0-9) to continue downstream in my Data Flow. I would like the records that contain characters other than digits to be logged to a table.
This sounds like a job for the Conditional Split transformation, but I don't see a way to easily test for a numeric value. For example, I would like to use something like ISNUMERIC([MyIDField]) for testing the values in my Conditional Split, but I don't see a way to do this.
Do I have to create a Derived Column transformation prior to my conditional split that populates a "numeric" ID column for each of my records then test this Derived Column in my Conditional Split? Seems like more work than I would to see for something as simple as testing for a numeric...
I have a zipcode column that contains xxxxx-xxxx, i want to use conditional split so that i can take the last 4 digits and put them into a different column, I tried to use the SUBSTRING ("ZIP", 6, 4) but it returns an error, any ideas on how i can split it?
I have setup a SSIS package that takes a flat file fixed width input, and stores it to two SQL server tables in the same database. The flat file contains two types of records, lets call them Type1 and Type2. The two types of records are formatted differently, and the first character determines what type the record is. I used a conditional split to send record type1 down one path, and type2 down the other. On each of those I use a derived column task to build all the fields and then store to the table with the OLE destination. I put any errors that occur (like truncation) into an error table by setting the "redirected row" feature vs "Fail Component". This all works well and I have no issues.
The dilema is as follows. Type1 is essentially a parent record and the Type2 record is a child. There is a shared primary key / foreign key relationship field. I want errors when processing type1 to cause the associated type2 to also be redirected to the error table vs being inserted.
If anyone has suggestions on how this could be done, reference articles, etc... please let me know.
I have been transfering data from text file to sql databases.
I have a conditional split where i check to if the address has changed for a particular person.If yes i direct to update else i direct to default output which means no change.
when i connect error output of conditional split to a database or union all couple of rows are directed to error output.But i dont understand the reason.How would i be able to know why they r directed to error.
Good Day All, I have an interesting situation that I cannot believe is unique. I have a flat file (ragged right) that contains 5 different record types. Each row in the file identifies the record type in the first character. The layout is something like this:
File Header Group Header (Contains group id number) Data Item (Contains group id number) . . . Group Footer (DOES NOT CONTAIN GROUP ID NUMBER) Group Header (Contains group id number) Data Item (Contains group id number) . . . Group Footer (DOES NOT CONTAIN GROUP ID NUMBER) File Footer
Now I only want to extract data for ONE of the aforementioned groups, however I need the group footer as well because it contains some control totals for the group. The real problem is that the footers do not contain the group id number it goes with. It is a completely positional thing. Silly, yes I know but this particular file layout is an industry standard.
I thought the conditional split would be the way to go. Unfortuately, it seems the conditional split wants to split the entire data set before passing the results down stream rather than processing a single row at a time and passing that row down stream before processing the next one. (Blocking versus streaming I think its called) I could do it in a single god-awful script but I would rather try not to have to code the entire thing.
If I have 2 input fields to my conditional split, how can I do a compare based on if they are alike. Example, I have 2 IDs, I want to see if the IDs match for a PK/FK relationship, if they match, then output those rows to the conditional's output stream. Do I literally do this or is this not right for the expression? Is there a like statement I should be using instead?
[IDName] == [IDName]
Basically I have 2 OLE DB sources coming in, 2 sets of columns, and both tables behind each OLE DB souce have an ID field to determine the PK/FK relationship. Out of all the records going through from the OLE DB source to the conditional split, I want to output each set of records where the IDs are equal...thuse after my conditional split, I could then take those records and input them into another txt file....and then the process would repeat for the next records in the pipe where IDs are the same...
EmployeesA empId integer, empName varchar(60), empAge integer, empStatus char(1) - can be N,D or S - New, Deleted or Shifted
and the following in Sql2005
EmployeesB Id smallint, Name varchar(60), Age int, Status char(1) - Bydefault 'N'
I have written a Foreach File package that populates the sql server tables (EmployeesB) from Access(EmployeesA). However i want to check for a condition now.
If empStatus = N in EmployeesA, then insert a new record in EmployeesB If empStatus = D in EmployeesA, then search for that field in the EmployeesB by passing empname and age and if found, mark the Status field in EmployeesB as 'D' If empStatus = S in EmployeesA, then search for that field in the EmployeesB by passing empname and age and if found, mark the Status as 'S' in EmployeesB and insert a new row.
How do I do it for each table each row in EmployeesA using a foreach file loop?
I am trying to do a simple thing using Conditional Split Task. But I get this error everytime.
[Conditional Split ] Error: The expression "ColName1 == "AWM"" on "output "Case 1" (506)" evaluated to NULL, but the "component "Conditional Split" (462)" requires a Boolean results. Modify the error row disposition on the output to treat this result as False (Ignore Failure) or to redirect this row to the error output (Redirect Row). The expression results must be Boolean for a Conditional Split. A NULL expression result is an error.
What I wanted to do is. Split the result result set accoring tro data in Colunm "ColName1". and if the data is AWM then pull that row.
Currently I have NO row for ColName1 that has AWM in it. But still if it didn't find any then all the row must go to default.
Also, when I give a valid name instead of AWM it works.
I have a package which has a conditional task which directs rows to its respective OLEDB command. The records are sorted from the source system in chronological order. The problem I am experiencing is that some of the operations do not seem to be occurring in the same order. An example of this would be someone inserts a record, deletes the record and reinserts in the record in that order. When we run the package we can see the records are coming down in chronological order but the delete from the split seems to occur after the inserts. Has anyone else experienced this? Is there anything I might be missing to ensure things happen in the order they should? Any advice would be greatly appreciated. Thank you.
I've about 8 output files from the "conditional split". For each run, only one condition is valid. When I run the package with value 0, I need to get only one output file with condition 0's data. That's working fine but I'm getting all other output files with 0KB, which I don't want. I'm getting like: Var0.txt ---------------> 2KB Var1.txt ---------------> 0KB Var2.txt ---------------> 0KB Var3.txt ---------------> 0KB ........... etc.
I have set up a conditional split task which i want to use with a flat file data source. The flat file consists of multiple rows of data where the first column is an ID. The conditional split is based on the first column value.
What i'd like to know is if in the conditional split once it splits the data can the output be transformed. e.g. If one of the values coming from the flat file requires to be either split up into two values or requires to be passed into a stored procedure to manipulate it, can this be done?
How can I do this in SSIS using conditional split task. If i cant do this using Conditional Split task then what wud b the best alternative
I have a table
Col1 Col2 Col3 ABC A1 123 XYZ B1 456 ASD C1 789
Now I wanna use conditional split in which I want to give condition as case1-> if Col1 = "ABC", case2 -> if Col1 ='XYZ', Case3 -> if Col1 ='ASD' . i.e. depending upon the data in the Col1 it should split.
i tried this but its giving me error saying PARSING THE EXPRESSION FAILED. Help me out please...
I have to load a flat file to a table, however there are some rows that I need to remove before loading to the table, see below the file structure.
I have to remove both, the blank row and the "**** Federal Do Not Call Registrants ****" as well, I was wondering if Conditional Split Transformation is the right tool to do this, if not, what would you guys recommend me doing.
**** Federal Do Not Call Registrants **** 1112223344|111|222|99999 2223334455|222|333|99999
I have a Variable called - UpdateIDs. I would like to create a conditional split on id's that have no responses and id's that have responses. The idea is. There is a whole bunch of tables that can be updated if the foreign key is in the no responses id's.
So I have created a data flow. The conditional split is there, but I do not have a "Update Global Variable" Destination source.
Is there away to achieve this.
Basically this is the logic that I am trying to use
Dataflow --> Store Id's into Global Variable --> Data Flow update/insert Tables and Rows where Id in Gloabl Variable.
Is there another way this can be done? Sorry I am very new to this, and would appreciate any help
I have a file with some blank rows. I tried to use a conditional split to filter the blank rows, but it isn't working. For example: ISNULL([ Column 0]).
Using a dataviewer, I can see that the blank row is slipping right though the conditional split on its merry way to the script transformation. By the time the blank row gets to the script transform, I get an index out of bounds error.
I know the blank rows are the problem because if I remove them, I don't get the index out of bounds error. However, it is not possible to remove the blank rows beforehand.
I don't know why the conditional split is not working.
Any ideas? Help.
The data file is a little weird in that the data looks like this:
col1, col2, col3, col4, col5,
That is, there's a comma after the last field, but there is also a line feed after the comma. I removed the trailing comma to see if that was affecting things, but it made no difference.
I have as csv-file wich I import into an SQL Server table. Now I want to do some checks on it. I use a conditional split to direct data to the other tables (1 table for the correct data, 1 table for the rejected data).
Is it possible to use a regular expression in a case in a conditional split to check if a columns has the right format?
