SQL 2012 :: SSIS Data Flow Items Tab Missing For Adding Data Source / Destination
Apr 3, 2014
I need to see inside a SSIS 2012 project a new SSIS installed component, but in the SSDT 2010 I cannot see the SSIS Data Flow Items tab for adding data source/data destination respect to the choose toolbox items pane.
Basically i'm trying to create an SSIS workflow to download Sharepoint List data to SQL Server on a schedule of some kind.do we actually have to use the GAC install approach in order to get the Sharepoint List Destination and Sharepoint List Source entries to appear on the SSIS Project workflow entities?
I am a complete newbie to SSIS. I can create a simple package to transfer data between SQL instances and thats about it.
I have tableA (source data) and tableB (Destination data). TableA has 4 column and tableB has 5. I want to transfer all of the columns from tableA into TableB, but the 5th column in tableB needs to be populated with the ServerInstance name of the server TableA sits on. Do I need to have multiple data sources to achieve this? I have tried but no matter how I set it up, the Column in the destination is set to ignore.
Inside a data flow task, i have a oledb source and destination. In my situation, I need to pull data from a table in the source, but also hard code some columns myself, which means my source is a blend of data from table, hard coded data, which will then have to be mapped to columns in oledb destination. Does anyone which option to choose in the oledb source dropdown for the data access mode. Keep in mind, i do need to run a a select query, as well as get data from a table. Is it possible to use multiple oledb sources and connect to one destination, because that is really what intend to do here. I am not sure how it will work, or even if its possible. Basically my source access mode needs to be a blend of sql command and table columns, how would that be implemented? Any help or advice is appreciated.
I have a package that does simple exporting from an excel sheet to a table. I used a Dataflow task with Excel Source and OLEDB Destination Components. And i created Package configurations for Source and Destination Components. After than when i execute the package i get the following error.

How do I retrieve the connections (connection managers) collections from Custom Data Flow destination? ComponentMetadata.RuntimeConnectionCollection is empty. I would like to be able to access all the connections defined in the package from the custom data flow task.
I came across code in which it was possible to access the Connections collection using the IDtsConnectionService for custom task (destination). The custom task has access to serviceProvider, whcih can be used to get access to the IDtsConnectionService interface but not the custom data flow task.
We have a single generic SSIS package that is used to import several hundred iSeries tables into SQL. I am not looking to rewrite the process. But I am looking for ways to improve performance.
I have tried retain same connection, maximum insert commit size, lock table (tablock), removed some large columns, played with the log file location and size, and now I am working to tweak the defaultbuffermaxrows.
To describe the data flow task - there are six data flows tasks (dft) working at the same time. Each dtf has their own list of iSeries tables and columns and the corresponding generic SQL table names. Each dtf determines their list of tables based on the number of columns to import. So there is dft30 (iSeries table has 1-30 columns to import), dtf60 (iSeries table has 31-60 columns to import), etc. The destination SQL tables are generically called Staging30, Staging60, etc. Each column in the generic Staging tables are varchar(100). The dtfs are comprised of an OLE DB Source and an OLE DB Destination.
The OLE DB Source uses a SQL Command from Variable to build a SELECT statement. The OLE DB Source uses a connection manager that uses an IBM iAccess IBMDA400 provider. The SQL Command ends up looking like this for the dtf30. This specific example is importing from the iSeries table TDACLR and it only has two columns so it will be copied to the Staging30 table.
select TCREAS AS C1,TCDESC AS C2,0 AS C3,0 AS C4,0 AS C5,0 AS C6,0 AS C7,0 AS C8,0 AS C9,0 AS C10,0 AS C11,0 AS C12,0 AS C13,0 AS C14,0 AS C15,0 AS C16,0 AS C17,0 AS C18,0 AS C19,0 AS C20,0 AS C21,0 AS C22,0 AS C23,0 AS C24,0 AS C25,0 AS C26,0 AS C27,0 AS C28,0 AS C29,0 AS C30,''TDACLR'' AS T0 from Store01.TDACLR
The OLD DB Source variable value looks like the following, but I am not showing the full 30 columns
select cast(0 AS varchar(100)) AS C1,cast(0 AS varchar(100)) AS C2,cast(0 AS varchar(100)) AS C3,cast(0 AS varchar(100)) AS C4,cast(0 AS varchar(100)) AS C5, ... cast(0 AS varchar(100)) AS C30.
The OLE DB Destination uses OpenRowSet Using FastLoad From Variable. The insert into Staging30 ends up looking like this.
Of course we then copy and transform the Staging30 data to the SQL table that equals T0.
But back to defaultbuffermaxrows. Previously the dtfs had default values of 10000 for DefaultBufferMaxRows and 10485760 for DefaultBufferSize. I added a SQL task to SUM the iSeries column sizes, TCREAS and TCDESC in this example, and set the DefaultBufferMaxRows by dividing the SUM of the columns max_length into 10485760. But I did not see a performance improvement. Do you think that redefining the columns as varchar(100) for the insert is significant? Should I possibly SUM the actual number of columns (2) as 2x100 or SUM the 30x100?
I'm creating a SSIS in the designer view of SQL Server BI Dev. Studio (SQL Server 2005)
I need to import a whole table from MS Access into my local SQL Server.(this task will be performed weekly, so once working I'll schedule a job for it)
I've created a 'FILE' connection to MS Access in the 'Connection Managers'.
When I'm on the 'Data Flow' tab I can't find a Data Flow Item to use as a MS Access connection. (available on the 'Data Flow Sources' are only: DataReader, Excel, Flat File, OLE DB, Raw File and XML Sources)
At our business we are getting a lot of PDF documents that are being hand keyed into a database. Has anyone heard ior know of a SSIS Data Flow Source component that I coud use to read thos documents into a data stream (?) and process?
Hi, Quick question on how SSIS handles queries from Data Source in a Data Flow. I noticed that when I run a particular query from Query Analyzer it takes forever. But, when I run the same query in SSIS data source in a data flow. The query results are immediate.
The query plan is already cached in SQL.
Is this just something which I am seeing incorrect or is there some bit of optimization in there in SSIS. As per my understanding SSIS does not optimize the source query.
I would like to know how I can add the following sample code to my Source data on Data Flow on SSIS, or what other options there are. The main issue is time as we have talking about 100's of millions of rows
select Sample, CASE WHEN Sample IS NULL THEN NULL WHEN SUBSTRING(Sample, 1, 6) IS NULL THEN ' ' ELSE RTRIM(SUBSTRING(Sample, 1, 6)) END AS [Sample_1_6] from TestTable
what I have done at this stage is just to Create a SQL task with a Insert into
INSERT INTO [dbo].[TestTable1] ([Sample] ,[Sample_1_6]) select Sample, CASE WHEN Sample IS NULL =THEN NULL WHEN SUBSTRING(Sample, 1, 6) IS NULL THEN ' ' ELSE RTRIM(SUBSTRING(Sample, 1, 6)) END AS [Sample_1_6] from TestTable
If there is a way adding this to a dataflow so I van use fast load that would really be the best solution. I know there are derived columns, but would this really be faster than the straight insert into in a SQL Task? If this is the way to go what is the code I would use in the derived column or any other option.
I am getting the following error running a data flow that splits the input data into multiple streams and writes the results of each stream to the same destination table:
"This operation conflicts with another pending operation on this transaction. The operation failed."
The flow starts with a single source table with one row per student and multiple scores for that student. It does a few lookups and then splits the stream (using Multicast) in several layers, ultimately generating 25 destinations (one for each score to be recorded), all going to the same table (like a fact table). This all is running under a transaction at the package level, which is distributed to a separate machine.
Apparently, I cannot have all of these streams inserting data into the same table at one time. I don't understand why not. In an OLTP system, many transactions are inserting records into the same table at once. Why can't I do that within the same transaction?
I suppose I can use a UnionAll to join them back together before writing to a single destination, but that seems like an unnecessary waste and clutters the flow. Can anyone offer a different solution or a reason why this fails in the first place?
I have set up a new connection as a connection from data source, but I cannot see how to use this connection to create my Data Flow Source. I have tried using an OLE DB connection, but this is painfully slow! The process of loading 10,000 rows takes 14 - 15 minutes. The same process in Access using SQL on a linked table via DSN takes 45 seconds.
Have I missed something in my set up of the OLE DB source / connection? Will a DSN source be faster?
I need to know what a table's max row Identity is part way thru a data flow. I can't get it at the beginning of the data flow. I need to either (1) add it to the data buffer part way thru or (2) set it into a package variable and then reference the var in a script component.
I've not found a way to add a database column to the data buffer without doing a lookup for each row (too slow and not appropriate here) or some goofy oledb source and then merge join into the data buffer on a contrived join.
I've read questions about referencing package vars in scripts but I can't get that to work. DTS.Variables("varname").Value isn't recognised when I code it up.
Anyone have an idea or solution for either one of these? If you're gonna explain the script code, please include the entire snipet including the INCLUDEs, etc.
I recently upgraded to on 2012 SP1 CU5 and have found the SSDT gui for SSIS to be almost unusable. I can't drag or resize items. Any time i try they either automagically shrink to the tiniest possible size, shoot off to some extreme or just shake uncontrollably I didn't have these problems on previous versions (dont remember what It was).
I am new to SSIS programming, so bear with me if my question seems naive to you gurus. I have a situation that needs to set the data source for a data flow from external .NET application ('external' means that the application will run on different process than the SSIS). I am trying to set the data source on which the data flow works from my C# application in a DataSet format. Ideal solution is not to save the DataSet to any file on harddisk (I know that will work, but has the overhead of writing, reading and managing the temp file). What I want to achive is that the business logic of picking data for SSIS Data Flow to process is controlled inside my C# application, the Data Flow just does what it does best - Transformation. Have any of you successfully done this before?. Thanks!
i have a package in ssis that needs to deliver data from outside servers with odbc connection. i have desined the package with dataflow object that includes inside a datareader source. the data reader source connect via ado.net odbc connection to the ouside servers and makes a query like: select * from x where y=? and then i pass the data to my sql server. my question is like the following:
how do i config the datasource reader or the dataflow so it will recognize an input value to my above query? i.e for example:
select * from x where y=5 (5 is a global variable that i have inside the package). i did not see anywhere where can i do it.
I've got a report that is using a cube as a data source and I can't get the report to show all the data. Only data at the lowest level of the cube is displayed. The problem is that most of the data I'm concerned with is at higher levels. There's no problem with the MDX. I get the correct results when I run the query.
I'm using a table to show the results. I've also tried a matrix, but I get the same results. I'm using SSRS 2005 and SSAS 2000.
Anyone have experience with this? Am I missing something simple?
I have a SSIS package that simply moves data from a SQL database A to another SQL database B. I have update (increased) the size of a nvarchar column, on both A and B.I am wondering if there is a way to "refresh" somehow the SSIS package so I don't have to rebuild and redeploy it.The error I get now is a truncation error: "Text was truncated or one or more characters had no match in the target code page".
Okay, this should be really simple but I don't get it. How do I use an ODBC data source in an SSIS data flow task? When I look at Data Flow Sources I see the following options:
Flat File Source
OLE DB Source
Raw File Source
Which one do I use if I need to get the data from a connection manager that is ODBC based? The IBM OLEDB driver for the AS400 doesn't work correctly so I HAVE to use an ODBC driver to connect to an AS400 data source.
I have SQL Server 2005/BIDS installed on a 64-bit server. When I open an SSIS package the properties window for each of the Data Flow tasks is empty. The properties window is there and displays correctly for other types of task but for the Data Flows it only shows the name of the task. To further compound my misery if I try to open a package that dynamically sets a property of a Data Flow task (using an expression) the package fails to open with errors concerning reading the XML of the package.
Packages containing Data Flow tasks still run on this server (both in BIDS and using dtexec) as long as they don't contain expressions that set any Data Flow properties.
Is there a default destination component used when a new data flow is created? The reason I ask is simply curiosity. I have an xml file with 2 pieces of data: item A and item B. A should simply get copied out of the file. B should undergo a quick transform. I set up an XML source such that two columns are mapped correctly to the XML source data of A and B. I set up my data transform task as well. So, if I leave those two components on the .dtsx page with no other components, then will there be a default data flow destination already created? ...OR, do you always have to have a destination component?
I have a series of data flow tasks that I want to output to a temp table. I've set the data source for RetainSameConnection and the Data Flows are DelayValidation. The OLE DB data source inside the Data Flow works fine, but the data destinations don't offer a # or ## as a target. I've tried every destination that sounds logical, without success.
I have a data flow that reads multiple rows from a table and then inserts to another table for each row. I use an ole destination for my inserts. However, after that insert I need to do other table inserts and I can't figure out how to continue the data flow with the fields in the pipeline. Out of the destination is only the Error flow - Is there a way to do this ?
