I am trying to do here is to load different flat files to different tables: For example, if the file name starts with "enrollment", then it goes to table "enrollment" table; if the file name starts with "student", then it goes to "student" table.
For now, I created a foreach loop container for the each different files. So it ended up using several foreach loop containers. I am wondering if there is a way just to use one foreach loop containters to process the loading.
Anyone shed some light on this?? Thank you very much for your help!
I have multiple xml data file in a directory say C:XMLData abc1.xml, abc2.xml, abc3.xml etc.
Need to loop through each file in ssis with Foreach loop container, and get the file name say abc1, and load the data of abc1.xml to abc1 table in sql server DB.
Next iteration will pick up the abc2.xml and find the abc2 table in sql server DB then insert the data in abc2 table.
While each iteration, xml source should also point each xsd file correspondingly.
Tables are already created in DB
I solved my problem up to getting the file name from ech iteration and assigned file name to variable, in oledb destination data access mode I select Table or view name variable, then corresponding table will get selected for data insertation.
Just wanted to know how can I read each xsd file for each xml data files while iteration.
I've been working on an SSIS package trying to load some data and the archive sequence is faulty. I've been trying to load a few tables created in a previous sequence into a local archive file and I've been getting the error "Could not find a part of the path."
The results aren't telling me what it's finding last and so I don't know where to start.
And the source DOES have data in it. It's something between the source and the destination.
I am new to SSIS and am looking to load XML files (with a DTD definition) into tables via a SSIS package. I have created a XML task and am able to load the XML and output it to file. I have also stripped out the DTD definition and am able through a dataflow using XML source an OLE db Destination load and map the XML to table sin my DB. But have no idea how to get the data in when it has a DTD definition included. I either want to put each file into a row in a table then query it. Or from the SSIS package input the relevant info into a set of staging tables or the real tables.
I am working on FTP TASK in SSIS Package. i have to get files from FTP that file names are like 20141110.txt. i want to download any particular date file from ftp. How to i set expression in Remote path?
I have an SSIS package that was originally written for SQL Server 2008 that needs to be updated. I am interested in moving it to 2012 and using the project deployment model, but it includes a plain text script file in an Execute Process Task call to WinSCP for an SFTP transfer. It appears that by moving from package deployment to project deployment that this file would no longer be bundled with the deployment package.I guess I could copy the WinSCP script to an external file path, but I'd prefer to keep them together for version control if possible.
How to load files with similar format , from two different locations into same database with same ssis.
Lets say Location 1: C:LoadFilesCust1APP_123445.txt Location 2: D:LoadFilescust2VDD_543121.txt
Currently we have one ssis which loads and process files from C:LoadFilesCust1 only. we have to modify the existing package it to load files from Location 2 (D:LoadFilescust2) as well. Also while loading, the ssis should assign a value to existing column CustID depending upon the file name. File names always start with APP_ in first location. VDD_ in second location
Assign CUSTID as 100 if file name starts with APP_ Assign CUSTID as 200if file name starts with VDD_
When my ForEach Loop runs, when a file does not exist on the server, I am getting a File does not exist error.I would prefer to write a mesaage to my log and then move on to the next step successfully.When I got to Event Handlers and select OnTaskFailed, what do I want to do from here?
So i have about 80 different SSIS PAckages that load different text files into tables. each package has a config file that contains password, server name and user id. I want to forward these packages to a use who will execute them. So instead of giving the user 80 packages to execute manually, how do i put these packages into one parent package so that the user has to only execute this parent package instead of executing 80 different packages NB. package exec is manually. (we will automate later) so this is a temp measure.
We are in the process of upgrading to a new SQL 2012 server but we have many packages that load data from dbf files created with FoxPro into one of our databases. We have not converted the packages and run them with DTS but we get the following error:
Error: 2013-08-26 11:05:27.36 Code: 0xC0209303 Source: BenchmarkLoad Connection manager "OLEDB NPIONE.Investment.middleTierSQL" Description: The requested OLE DB provider SQLNCLI.1 is not registered. If the 64-bit driver is not installed, run the package in 32-bit mode. Error code: 0x00000000.
I searched for OLEDB and ODBC drivers for SQL 2012 64 bit but cannot find any that is newer than the 2005 that we have. What can I do short of changing the source files to overcome this issue?
I have an existing project that I have added a simple text file. I am using the Project Deployment Model for this project. I save the project, close it and open the project and the file is there under the Miscellaneous folder. I successfully deployed the project to the server. When I retrieve the project using the Integration Services Import Project Wizard, all of my package modifications are there and the packages up to date but the txt file I added to the Miscellaneous folder is not there.
Every day an application creates new tables and dumps static info into them.
I would like to create a package to dynamically export those database tables to raw files for long term archive, one file per table. Here is what I have so far and the issue I am having.
1) Get a list of un-archived tables. 2) Foreach table do the following.
a. Export the table into raw file. b. Zip the raw file. c. Update archive tracking table.
As long as the metadata for each table is the same this package seems to work fine. However, I have many tables with different metadata. How can I dynamically get the package update the metadata column collection when it hits a new table? When it hits a table with different metadata I am getting warnings like this:
The column "some_column" needs to be added to the external metadata column collection.
The "external metadata column "someother_column" (103)" needs to be removed from the external metadata column collection.
Then I get this error: Error: 0xC004706B at dump the table into a raw file, DTS.Pipeline: "component "OLE DB Source" (1)" failed validation and returned validation status "VS_NEEDSNEWMETADATA"
I have 2 different excel files file1 and file2. file1 should be loaded to table1 and file2 should be loaded to table2. Both of the files will have 1 sheet inside. Do I need to create separate excel source for file1 and file2? I mean file1 in one excel source and that will be connecting to 1 execute sql task. file2 in other excel source and that will be connecting to another execute sql task. Is this the way I should proceed or is there any looping should be done? I need to schedule this activity to run every week. So, I'll get new files every week with the same file names and sheet names. Do I need to consider anything for this requirement also?
I'm planning to do truncate and reload not an incremental load.
I have a scenario, need to create SQL server Tables dynamically.
I Have multiple xml data file on a particular location, and want to load those XML data into sql server tables, but he metadata of each xml data files are not same.
Hence the approach is that,
1. Pick first file from that location 2. Create a table according to that xml data file metada 3. load data on newly created table. 4. Pickup the next xml data files. 5. loop through, till the XML data files are exists on that location.
I am writing a SSIS package to load a lot of Excel files. I use SQL statement to select the Excel data. However, I found it's hard to dynamical set the table name (Excel Tab name) - the user name the Tab differently.
In MySQL, I use "LOAD DATA INFILE 'my_path/data_file.txt'" to load datafrom a plain text file. Of course, the actual statement is a bit morecomplex once one considers the various options (e.g. comma delimited vstab delimited, record termination strings, &c.).My problem is that I have yet to find the equivalent within MS SQLserver. I did find a LOAD statement in T-SQL, but at first glance itseems to do something completely different.How does one normally load data from a plain text file into a table inMS SQL? This needs to be relatively efficient since, once inproduction, it will be used to load tens of megabytes of data into thedatabase (a feed from a data provider). Is it flexible enough to allowme to specify whether the fields are tab delimited vs comma delimited,optionally enclosed by quotes, record termination charactors, &c.?All I really need is direction to the right part of the T-SQL reference(MS SQL Server 2005). Anything else, such as examples, is icing on thecake.ThanksTed
I'm using the For Each loop container to load multiple XML data files into SQL Server, and noticing some peculiar behavior and need some advice.
The pattern I'm trying to accomplish is this: Iterate over a collection of XML files in a specific folder, loading each in turn into SQL Server. If the file has already been loaded, delete the records first before the load. After the load succeeds, move the file into an Archive folder.
To accomplish this, I've set up a For Eac Loop container using the For Each File enumerator, and retrieve just the file name and extension into a variable. The first task in this is an Execute SQL task that uses a SQL DML statement to delete records based on a field in the table containing the file name (DELETE FROM table WHERE PROG_NAME = ?), and map a variable to the parameter. The next task is the data flow task that uses an XML source using the variable as the file name, and SQL Server destination. I use a derived column task in between to plug the variable holding the file name into the PROG_NAME field. So far, so good. This works.
But now comes the peculiar part. I initially had the XSD files in the same folder as the XML files, but wanted to put them in their own directory, so moved them, and made the change to the XML source adapter for the new path to the XSD file. The next time I ran my package, it failed. For some reason, as the For Each Loop tried to iterate over the directory, it was using the XSD path assigned in the XML source instead of the path for the XML files. Unusual...
My question is, why when choosing the File name & Extension retrieval type (as opposed to the fully qualified name) will the task try to use the XSD location to find the files? Is my variable getting reassigned somewhere?
Here's my delema, I have a file that's 308 bytes wide by 5.7 million records. The record length is fixed and the position and width of the known within the record. When I run DTS I recieve this error Msg MS DTS flat file provide and Err Diesdription: error creating file mapping view: not enough storage is available to process this command. Then when I try to continue with the wizard, it will not allow me to separate the data into the format that I need. Is there any other way to import this file using DTS?
I have 6000+ text files, average size 400 kb, that I need to load into 1 table in Sql Server 2000. Does anyone know of an easy way to do this? I thought I would just write a little VB app to loop through all the files in the directory and insert the data into an existing table but there must be an easier way.
I am pretty new to SQL Server 2005 and SSIS. I am trying to develop a package that will dynamically load files into SS2005 based on the contents of a configuration table. The configuration table (see below for example) contains the path to the file, a flag indicating whether or not to process the flag, the type of file (specifies the nature of data -- financial, order, etc.) and some parameters specific to each file.
FileName ProcessFlag Type ExcelTab Param1
C:File1.xls TRUE 1 Sheet1$
C:File2.xls TRUE 1 Sheet1$
C:File3.xls TRUE 1 Sheet1$
C:File4.xls TRUE 2 Sheet1$
C:File5.xls FALSE 2 Sheet1$
C:File6.csv TRUE 3
C:File7.txt TRUE 4
Right now I basically have a seperate sequence for each of the file types. The task in each sequence are virtually identical with the exception of the the data flow source in the data flow task (since the source file could be .xls, .txt, .csv). The first sequence ran fine in isolation, but when I linked a second sequence I started getting a Package Validation Error: DTS_E_CANNOTACQUIRECONNECTIONFROMCONNECTIONMANAGER I use the same variables (FileName, ExcelTab) for each of the sequences, so I am not sure if that causes te error. I also tried changing the ValidateExternalMetadata setting to false, since the connection variable wont be applicable until that sequence is being processed. I am not sure where to go here ... should I rearchitect how the package all together?
Is there a better/most efficient way to to architect this package to handle the different file types (develop a package for each type which is called by a master package, create one package with a different sequence container for each type, etc).
Hi.I need to give my customer an sql file that they can run in query analyzer.All the stuff they need to run is in a set of existing files.I'd like to just tell them to load this file (this is oracle syntax):@firstname.lastname@example.org@file3.sqlis there some way of calling these files (that are in the same dir) from amaster sql file?ThanksJeff Kish
I have a requirement where in i have around 15 different flat files , filenames are fixed but folder path can be changed(i think i should use a variable for folder path). These 15 files data should go to their respective tables in the database.
Whether I need to create separate data flow task for each file or separate package? In addition to these, example : while importing product data into product table, if product ID already exists, we need to ignore it and upload only the new records.
