Data Flow Job Failing, Destination = Microsoft SQL Native Client, Error Message Not Too Helpful...
Hi there,

I have a Data Flow task which uses an XML File Source with six parellell Outputs, each going firstly to a Data Conversion Task, then the results of each end in a SQL Server Destination Object. (All using the SQL Native Client)

To eplain this further, the Xml file contains 6 different types of elements, the Dataflow splits out each type of element and processes them into different tables. The Data Transformation object exists only because the XML fields are Uni-code and the table fields are VarChar not nVarChar.

Initially using this setup I found that the Connection would timeout using the SQL Native Client so I changed the Timout on the Destination Objects to 0. This fixed the problem to some degree, however at present I can run the Pakage using the Visual Studio enviroment and everything works fine, no problem. When I run the Dtsx file using the SQL Server Agent, I end up getting the error below...

Error: 2007-12-14 14:33:19.16     Code: 0xC0202009     Source: Import XML File to SQL SQL - CP [2746]     Description: SSIS Error Code DTS_E_OLEDBERROR.  An OLE DB error has occurred.

I understand that this error is somewhat of a 'catch all' and that the way the Native SQL Server Connection object works makes Error Capturing difficult. I have tried a few things which I will list as I'm sure they will be suggested...

I have played around with the 'MaxInsertCommitSize' property of the SQL Server Destination Objects to no avail (IE, changing to 50000, 10000, 1000 all of which resulted in the same problem)

I am running the ssis pakage from the server which is the destination

As mentioned above the Timeout on the SQL Server Destination Objects is set to 0

What I have already mentioned and still don'tt quite understand is that I can run the job successfully from the Visual Studio enviroment but as a job run off the SQL Server it fails...

Inserting Image Data Fails With Connection Broken (SQL Server 2000 And SQL Native Client)
Dear all,
we have tables  with many image columns. We fill these image columns via ODBC and SQLPutData as described in MSDN etc (using SQL_LEN_DATA_AT_EXEC(...), calling SQLParamData and sending the data in chunks of 4096 bytes when receiving SQL_NEED_DATA).
The SQLPutData call fails under the following conditions with sqlstate 08S01
- The database resides on SQL Server 2000
- The driver is SQL Native Client
- The table consists e.g. of one Identity column (key column) and nine image columns
- The data to be inserted are nine blocks of data with the following byte size:

1:  6781262
2: 119454

3: 269
4: 7611

5: 120054

6: 269

7: 8172

8: 120054

9: 269
The content of the data does not matter, (it happens also if only zero bytes are written), nor does the data origin (file or memory).
All data blocks including no 7 are inserted. If the first chunk of data block 8 should be written with SQLPutData the function fails and the connection is broken. There are errors such as "broken pipe" or "I/O error" depending on the used network protocol.
If data no 7 consists of 8173 bytes instead of 8172 all works again.
(Changing the 4096 chunk size length does not help)
Has anybody encountered this or a similar phenomenon?
Thank you

Microsoft Data Link Error - Connection Failure

I've a computer with W2K SP4 installed. Previously SQL Express 2005 worked but according to the user it "just stopped working".

When selecting database on the server in the "Data Link Properties"-window he is given the following error message:

"Microsoft Data Link" "Login failed. Catalog information cannot be retrieved"
followed by
"Microsoft Data Link Error" "Connection failure"
Note: He is not given the error message "Server does not exist or access denied!"

- The SQL service is started (can be stopped and restarted without problem)
- I've re-installed SQL Express.
- I've checked and is certain the server name is correct (i.e. computernameSQLEXPRESS)

Any ideas here because I'm getting desperate?

Thanks in advance,

SQL NATIVE CLIENT - OLE DB Connection On 64 Bit Client
I have tried this on several different operating systems (VISTA and XP ) and several versions of SQL NATIVE CLIENT including 2005.90.3042.0

Bulk Insert From Native Format Data File.
With "bcp MyDatabase.dbo.MyTable out C:MyFile.Dat -n -T" command line, I could get an exported data file. And I can also import this file  into MyTable using 'BULK INSERT MyDatabase.dbo.MyTable FROM 'C:MyFile.dat' WITH (DATAFILETYPE='native');' query statement.

Now, I want to make my own data file just like made by bcp above. Although I could make file of 'char' type, 'native' type file is needed for performance and other reasons. And the format file should not be used.

 Any one help?

SQL Native Client Connection String Problem

I have two server instances of SQL on my server MYSRVR: default (SQL 2000) and named SQLX (SQL 2005).

I've been using these strings ok for the default (SQL 2000):

    "Server=MYSRVR; Database=mydb; Network=dbmssocn; Integrated Security=SSPI "

    "Server=; Database=mydb; Network=dbmssocn; Integrated Security=SSPI "

 and these for the named (SQL 2005)

    "Server=MYSRVRSQLX; Database=mydb; Network=dbmssocn; Integrated Security=SSPI "

    "Server=; Database=mydb; Network=dbmssocn; Integrated Security=SSPI "

But then adding the SQL port 1433 works for the default:

    "Server=MYSRVR,1433; Database=mydb; Network=dbmssocn; Integrated Security=SSPI "

    "Server=,1433; Database=mydb; Network=dbmssocn; Integrated Security=SSPI "

But this, for named (SQL 2005) actually connects to default. The SQL port is causing the name SQLX to be ignored.

    "Server=MYSRVRSQLX,1433; Database=mydb; Network=dbmssocn; Integrated Security=SSPI "

    "Server=,1433; Database=mydb; Network=dbmssocn; Integrated Security=SSPI "

Anyone any ideas?

Could Not Load File Or Assembly 'Microsoft.Data.Odbc...
I have developed an application in C#, and it uses both a SQL server database, and as part of its operation it opens up a Foxpro database. I am using Odbc to connect to the fox pro database and everything wortks just fine on my devleopment machine. However when I deploy my application I am getting the following error text when ever I create the form that does the Odbc work.

************** Exception Text **************
System.IO.FileNotFoundException: Could not load file or assembly 'Microsoft.Data.Odbc, Version=1.0.3300.0, Culture=neutral, PublicKeyToken=b77a5c561934e089' or one of its dependencies. The system cannot find the file specified.
File name: 'Microsoft.Data.Odbc, Version=1.0.3300.0, Culture=neutral, PublicKeyToken=b77a5c561934e089'

I have absolutely no clue why I am getting this error. I have insured that the latest MDAC was installed ( it is XP Pro so no updates there ) I have made sure that I have the latest Fox Pro Odbc driver installed as well and I can create the DSN just fine.

Can anyone point me where to look next ? Im truly stumped here.

Microsoft Data Link Error
Hi all,

Im having problems accessing my MSDE database through server explorer in Visual Studio 2003. Last week it was working fine and I could see my databases no problem but for some reason something seems to have changed and when trying to access them i get this error:

I get Microsoft Data LInk Error -

[DBNetLib][ConnectionOpen (Connect()). ] SQL Server does not exist or access denied.

I've had a look using Enterprise Manager and I can get in the database fine using that. Its set to windows NT authentication and I have even added ASPNET in security>logins.

Any ideas what might have happened to be stopping me have access to my database???

many thanks

Microsoft Data Link Error
A test installation script I ran on my dev rig seems to have broken the OLE DB Provider for Sql Server. The uninstall must have deleted a DLL or unregistered a lib. When I try to connect to a SQL database from this machine now get the following error:


Microsoft Data Link Error

Test connection failed because of an error in initializing provider. Unspecified error.


It is not the connection string because this was working fine prior to me running the test installation script.

Can you give advice on how to repair the SQL Server data provider for WinXP SP2?

I have tried to re-install MDAC 2.8 with no success due SP2 diallowing this. I uninstalled SP2 and re-installed MDAC 2.8 but the problem remains.

I'm all out of ideas, so any help would be appreciated.

Can't Find SQL Native Client In ODBC Connection Manager In SQL Server Open Database Connectivity (ODBC)
I apologize if this is not the correct forum for this posting. Looking at the descriptions, it appeared to be the best choice.

I am running Windows XP Pro SP2. I have installed the SQL Native Client for 
XP. However, when I try to add a new data source through ODBC Connection 
Manager, SQL Native Client is not listed as an option. I have followed this procedure on three other systems with no problems. What would be causing the
SQL Native Client to not show up in the list of available ODBC data sources?

File Connection Act Differently Than Flat File Connection For Expressions?
I am thinking I must be doing something wrong..


I have dozens of packages that work as follows (high level... not listing all the steps just those relevant to this question)


- Get list of files in directory

- Join list to list of already imported files

- Those not imported put into an ADO.Net object

- Loop through ADO.Net record (which contains the filename) and import each file.


I just set the connection string of the flat file to be the variable in the loop (expressions.. connection string).  Pretty standard stuff.  Now I tried to do the same with a file connection (not a flat file) becuase I have a source that is from a mainframe and I had to write a custom source script and its not working.  Basically the source script uses

oRead = oFile.OpenText(Me.Connections.FileConnection.ConnectionString)

And it opens the same file over and over (not ever changing as the ConnectionString expression changes like it does for flat files) and imports it even though I have verified the loop is correctly looping through all the different files.


Any thoughts as to what I am doing wrong?

Unable To See Data From Oracle Client Through SQL Link Server

I was hoping someone had this problem and has a solution... :)

Some background info:

SQL 2005 Enterprise x64

Windows 2003 R2 x64 Enterprise (clustered)

Oracle client (latest as of 2/2/07)

The issue I'm having is I have a link server setup within SQL 2005 connecting to a Oracle 8 database server. The Oracle client I'm using is (latest version from Oracle). From the SQL 2005 server I'm able to query the remote oracle server through the link server I had setup if I query the table directly. If I perform a query to a view on the Oracle server I'm able to see the colum names, but not the data. This only happens when I'm using the Oracle client, if I use the MS client for Oracle it works fine OR if I use SQL Plus.

Now, you're probally asking, why not just use MS's driver... Well, I would If I could, but Microsoft hasn't provided a 64 bit driver for Oracle which I need to create the link server in SQL.

Any help would be appreciated.

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;

Flat File Connection Manager Not Parsing File Correctly


I have a flat file, comma-delimited, with strings in double-quotes.


In the connection manager for the file, I have specified that the Text Qualifier = ""


However, in the preview tab, it still shows the strings as surrounded by the quotes, e.g. "mycol1" whereas it should show mycol1 without the quotes.


Next, when I examine the data in the database after the load, it's messed up there also.


"mycol1" ends up in the database as "mycol1


"mycol2" ends up as "mycol2


This is not right.


I have format set to delimited, header row delimiter crlf, etc.


Any ideas?

Unable To Change The File In Flat File Connection Manager

   What I need to change in Package A is to change the file in Flat File Connection Manager. I can change it in the conneciton manager editor. However, it is automatically changed back to the previous one everytime when I try to Save All or run the package.
  I also tried to copy/paste this Flat File Connection Manager in the same package but samething happen. The package file is not set 'Read Only" so anything else can Saved well except for the File name in connection manager.
  Is this a bug?  It would be very appreciated if anyone can give me any idea about this.

Variable In Flat File Connection File Name - Syntax?

I'm attempting to use a variable to define the file name in my flat file connection (for error files in my SSIS package).

I have it defined as follows:


However it throws an error 'the filename, directory name, or volume label syntax is incorrect'.

If I put the value of the variable in explicitly it works, so I know my variable name is correct - am I just not calling the variable properly?

I am trying to connect to a csv file to import into a table to process thru my coded application.


I see from BOL that I should not allow ad ho distributed queries and should create a linked server to the data I require.


I am trying to create a linked server to the csv file selected by the user but am coming unstuck as I do not know the correct info to put in the connection settings etc.


Code Snippet

Dim srvAdminServer As Server = Nothing

Dim cnSQLConnection As SqlClient.SqlConnection = New SqlClient.SqlConnection(My.Settings.MMConnectionString)

Dim scnServerConnection As ServerConnection = Nothing

Dim lsrv As LinkedServer


scnServerConnection = New Microsoft.SqlServer.Management.Common.ServerConnection(cnSQLConnection)

srvAdminServer = New Server(scnServerConnection)

lsrv = New LinkedServer(srvAdminServer, "CSV-IMPORT")

lsrv.ProductName = "MSDASQL"



The code above does not error until I call the create method when I get an unknown product or provider error?


This is all new to and I have searched and searched without success!


Can anyone help me?

Using The File Connection Manager To Write To A File
Is there any real purpose to the File Connection Manager?  Not the Flat File Connection Manager, just the plain old File Connection Manager.
I have one in my SSIS package because I thought it might make writing to a file easier.  But from what I can tell, it doesn't really do much.  I have to pull the file name from the connection manager and basically open and manage the file myself in my scripts. 
I went this route because I have two scripts that write to the file in turn...  one writing out parent records and the other inserting the child records after each parent.
The script looks like this:

Code Block
Dim outFile As String
outFile = Dts.Connections("TestFile.LDIF").AcquireConnection(Dts.Transaction).ToString()
Dim sw As New StreamWriter(outFile, True)
sw.WriteLine("dn: " & Dts.Variables("GroupID").Value.ToString())
sw.WriteLine("changeType: add")

I have to close the connection every time because the other script uses the file.  It seems that this is quite inefficient.  Am I using the File Connection Manager incorrectly?  What's a more appropriate way to do this?
I could open the file in a different script and store the StreamWriter object in a global variable, I suppose...
Thoughts, suggestions?

Store A Link To A File In The Database
Hi Guys,

I have a software, through its user interface, which can save a file link in the SQL database. The file is still in the file system.

The table provided by the software is:
Column , Data Type , Length , Allow Nulls
NUMBER , varchar , 7
OBJSPEC , varchar , 255
OBJDATA , image , 16 , x
hSec , int , 4

For example, if have the file C: ext.txt, after I add a link to this file via the UI, one row generated in the database:

0 , c: ext.txt , <Binary> , 9479

MY QUESTION is how I can add a file link through program with statement. If I uses
INSERT INTO tablename (number, objspec, objdata, hsec) VALUES ('0', 'c: ext.txt'), this results in a dead link. The row in the dababase is,
0 , c: ext.txt , NULL , 0

Which values should I give to OBJDATA and hSec in my program? What does hSec mean?

Thanks in advance. Please advise.

Using A Link To Open A .csv File On A Server
I have a report that returns a field with the location of a .csv file on the network.  The value of the field looks like this:


I need to let the user click a link to open the file.  Simply making the Jump To Url under navigation the field value doesn't work; it's not clickable.  I've tried a javascript new window command, but I'm no good at javascript. 

All my google results turn up unrelated items because I'm searching "ssrs open file" or "ssrs open file in windows explorer". 

Any ideas?

SQL Server 2000 ( Link Text File)
Hi to All,
I am a problem in accessing a "Link Text Server." The enviroment is SQL Server 2000 on Windows 2000.

System Setup :
* User A : Belongs to Administrative group of the Server in which SQL Server is installed.
* User B : Belongs to Domain User group & have access to the databases.
* A text file exists in the data directory & Everyone is given full controll over the directory
* A Link Server is created, logining in as User A.
* Windows NT Security has been setup in SQL server

I am hereby explaining the verious scenarios, it works well & it doesn't.

Scenario 1.
User A, is able to access all the files.

Scenario 2.
User B get the following error messages , when he tries to access the linked server.
Error 7399:

Scenario 3:
User B is able to access the linked server with the same access privilege setup, in Windows NT 4.0 & SQL Server 2000 Professional Edition environment.

Scenario 4:
User B is able to access the linked server with the same access privilege setup, in Windows NT 4.0 & SQL Server 7.0 environment.

Could anyone, give your valuable suggestions, why it is giving an error or is there anything else, we have to do to make it work.

Unable To Edit Pre-defined Flat File Connection Manager Properties In The Flat File Destination Editor
I am testing SSIS and have created a Flat File Destination. I defined the Flat File Connection as New for the first time and it worked fine. Now, I would like to go back and modify the Flat File Connection in the Flat File Destination Editor, but it allows only to create a New connection rather allowing me to edit the existing one. For testing, I can go back and create a new connection, but if my connection had 50-100 columns then it would be an issue to re-create it from scratch.
Did someone else faced this issue?
