SSIS - Excel Destination Column Mapping Error

I have created a package which transfers data from a SQL server source to an Excel Destination. The DataFlow Task works fine , if i pre-define the column names in the Excel Destination... But i run into an error when i give the blank excel sheet as my destination. I am unable to map any columns


A sample example is as shown above .. In the column mappings field only one column in the Excel shows up for mapping and eventually throws the error "[Excel Destination [42]] Error: The number of columns is incorrect. "


How do we proceed in this case , where in we do not want to give pre-defined coulmn names in the Excel Destination sheet.

SSIS Tries To Insert NULL Value Into A Destination Column Ignored In The Mapping.
Hello everyone,
I am having a little problem with a simple package and I do not know if this is a known issue or that I am missing something.
I have a data flow task, a simple one, with an oledb source pulling data, using a select statement, from a sql server 2005 instance, and an ole db destination pointing to a table in a sql server 2000 instance. Both intances are standard edition. The table in the destination has a column which allow null values and has also a default constraint (getdate()), and this column is not present in the source. When I map the columns in the destination, I leave this column as "ignore", not being mapped to any column from the source. The problem is that when I execute the task, SSIS is trying to insert NULL value into this column, so the package fail with the error "can not insert NULL value into column myColumn". I wonder why is it trying to insert NULL value if the column is not mapped to any column from the source.
Is this a known issue or I am nissing something in the settings?
If the destination table has rowversion or identity columns, there is no problem ar all. I ignore those columns in the mapping and SQL Server feeds them as expected.
Thanks in advance,
Alejandro Mesa

SSIS Excel Destination Error
ts my first time trying to set up a SSIS job using the import/export wizard to export the results of a query into an excel file.

In the last step in the excel destination editor,  in the connection manager when i am trying to select the excel file to write into i am getting this error.

'Microsoft.Jet.OLEDB.4.0 ' provider is not registered on the local machine.

I have set up the excel connection manager. i have changed the properties of the project to set

the Run64BitRuntime to false.

i am running the latest version of MDAC 2.8 on the machine too

please let me know if there is anything else i need to do to fix this.

OLEDB Destination Error In SSIS Package Not Returning Error Column/desc
I have a SSIS package that reads data from a dump table, runs a custom script that takes date data and converts it to the correct format or nulls and formats amt fields to currency, then inserts it to a new table.  The new table redirects insert errors.  This process worked fine until about 3 weeks ago.  I am processing just under 6 million rows, with 460,000 or so insert errors that did give error column and code.

Now, I am getting 1.5 million errors. and nothing has changed, to my knowledge.  I receive the following information.

Error Code   -1071607685   Error Column   0   Error Desc   No status is available. 

The only thing I can find for the above error code is


To add to the confusion, I can not see any errors in the data written to the error table.  It appears that after a certain point is reached in the processing, everything, or most records, error out.

Any help is appreciated.

SSIS Conditional Column Mapping

I have a condition where if  column5 is equal to 1 then put column6 into the destination column "dest6", if it is not equal to 1 then put column6 in destination column "dest7"
What is the best way to do this in SSIS?
If I have to use the conditional split then do I have to copy my complete mappings, exact change this one column?
Thank for the help this mapping will take me a long time!

SSIS - Excel Destination Formatting
We have an excel sheet destination and have created the excel sheet in our destination folder, with the column headings colored and bold.

Now, when the package is run and the excel sheet is populated with data, the first row and the first column also appear colored and bold.

To validate our observation, we removed the color and bold from the first column heading, and the result generated was normal.

Can anyone help us resolve this issue ?

Thanks .

SSIS Excel Destination Formatting Problems
Ok.  I've been messing around with exporting data to excel using an Excel Destination.  I keep having formatting problems specifically with dates, numbers and text (if the text looks like a number).  I am exporting to a range.
1) If set the FirstRowHasColumnNames to true, format the appropriate cells in the header, and the range is set to the row of column headers only, the formatting does not apply.
2) If set the FirstRowHasColumnNames to true,include a blank row after  the header, format the appropriate cells in the that row and set the range to both rows, the formatting does apply but I get a blank row after the header line.

3) If set the FirstRowHasColumnNames to false, format the appropriate cells in the first row, and set the range to that row, the formatting does not apply.
I cannot use VBA or install excel on the server and manipulate it via VBA.
Is there any way to delete the row via a query using OLEDB?  I seem to have read you can blank out a line but not delete a row using this method.
Is there any way to format the columns in SSIS?

Unable To Format Excel Destination Column For Numbers

I have an excel export with numeric values. When the SSIS package writes into the excel it treats all data types as strings and attaches an apostrophe in the beginning. I tried formatting the excel sheet with the number data type and saving it . It doesnt work.

Other strange thing is that when I go into the advanced editor for the excel destination and look into the properties of the external columns all of them have the data type as Unicode String[DT_WSTR] irrespective of what the data type is from the input.The UI allows me to change it to numeric for numeric columns without any error but the value is not saved at all which is very frustrating. I also tried changing it in the xml file of the package, it some how seems to overwrite it after validation. It would be really nice if it threw an error saying that it cannot be changed.

Anyways there seems to be no way of changing the destination data type if it s an existing file and if I create a new excel sheet there is no way of formatting data. Is there any way out?

SSIS Excel Destination Editor Date Formatting Issue

Hi All
I have seen several posts on this issue but as yet no answer. So i'm hoping that somewhere out there knows what the issue is.
SSIS package queries database creates MS spreadsheets per customer and then emails each customer their list. 
Anyway all works fine apart from the fact that the Excel Destination Editor converts the date from uk to us format. My routine is already using an MS Excel template (correctly formatted) which it copies as part of the package.
Any ideas anyone?

SSIS Parameter Mapping With Oracle Data Type Mapping!
Hi Friends,

I have a small problem in parameter mapping for Execute SQL Task.
I am using a delete statement with 2 conditions.
Followed by another Execute SQL Task which contains commit statement.

delete from tname where c1 = ? and c2 =?

where c1 is number(4) datatype and c2 is of varchar2(20) datatype in oracle.

The connection manager i am using is ORacle OLE DB provider.
I am passing 2 global variables i.e g_v1 of Int32 and g_v2 of String Type.

In the parameter mapping of the Executing SQL task, i am mapping these 2 variables for
c1 and c2 and changed the datatypes inside parameter mapping as Numeric for c1 and Varchar for c2.

I also set the property as ByPassPrepare = True.

When i am executing the package i getting INVALID NUMBER ERROR.
i believe the SSIS is unable to perform the implict datatype converison.

For the next run, i changed the g_v1 varible datatype to Double and also i changed the parameter mapping for c1 as Doble datatype.
This time it is working fine. I can see the Green signal for the 2 SQL Tasks.

But when i connected to Oracle check the count in the table, the data is not getting deleted.

I set the property RetainSameConnection = TRUE for oracle connection manager.
I am not able to trace this logical error.

The same is working fine in my local machine.
But i am facing the problem when i deployed the same on the client machine.

Is there any problem with parameter mapping?
What should be equialent Datatype for Oracle NUMBER datatype that should be used inside the SSIS package while declaring the global variable and
inside the parameter mapping.

Any thoughts!

Excel Destination Data Flow Component Shows No Sheet Name Or Output Column Names For Mappings

I have a data flow that consists of

OLE DB source which calls a stored proc that returns a result set

data conversion

Excel destination
I am in design mode in Business Intelligence studio.  My excel destination (with an Excel Connection) shows no sheet name though I  have an execute SQL task before the data flow to create the excel table called SHEET1.  Needless to say, there are no output columns visible to do any mappings.  I did go to the ExcelConnection to set the OpenRowset Property to SHEET1 but it seems to have no effect.
I can do the export in SQL Server Management studio and that works fine, but it is basic and does not meet my requirements.   I have to customize the package to allow dynamic Excel filenames based on account names and have to split my result set into multiple excel sheets because excel 2003 has a max of 65536 rows per sheet.  Also when I use the export wizard, I have the source as a table and eventually the source has to be a stored proc with input parms.
What am I missing or doing wrong?  Thanks in advance

Nvarchar(max) To Excel Destination Error
I'm trying to export data to an Excel destination. I'm receving the following error on a notes column which is an nvarchar(max) datatype.

Error: 0xC0202025 at Data Flow Task, Excel Destination [124]: Cannot create an OLE DB accessor. Verify that the column metadata is valid.

I realize that the charcater limit on an Excel cell is 32, 767 characters, but none of the test data that I'm using is close to that. I've also tried using ntext and receive the same error. When I change the datatype to nvarchar(4000), it works fine. I've also changed the destination to a flat file using nvarchar(max) and I don't receive the error. Unfortunately, our vendor specifies that they have to have an Excel file. Does anyone know what is causing this error, if it's a bug, or have any suggestions?

Excel Destination Number Conversion Error
In my SSIS project I am populating an Excel spreadsheet with several worksheets. When I define a worksheet in Excel Destination Editor, I use Create Table SQL statement to create a worksheet. Most of the fields are defined as numbers, however when job runs my numeric fields appear as text in Excel with yellow warning sign - 'The number in this cell is formatted as text or preceeded by an apostrophe'.  I need my numbers to appear as numbers.

Mapping Destination Input Columns
What is the difference between using the two methods below, I see them being used interchangeably in BOL and other examples. One of them arbitrarily seem to work at a given component and not both

What are the instances where these each of these should be used and not other.

Method #1

IDTSInput90 Input = MetadataComponent.InputCollection[0];

IDTSVirtualInput90 VirtualInput = Input.GetVirtualInput();

int destinationInputID = Input.ID;


foreach (IDTSVirtualInputColumn90 virtualInputColumn in VirtualInput.VirtualInputColumnCollection)


DesignInstance.SetUsageType(destinationInputID, VirtualInput, virtualInputColumn.LineageID, DTSUsageType.UT_READONLY);

IDTSInputColumn90 inputColumn = Input.InputColumnCollection.GetInputColumnByLineageID(virtualInputColumn.LineageID);

IDTSExternalMetadataColumn90 externalColumn = Input.ExternalMetadataColumnCollection[virtualInputColumn.Name];

DesignInstance.MapInputColumn(destinationInputID, inputColumn.ID, externalColumn.ID);


Method #2

// Get the destination's default input and virtual input.

IDTSInput90 input = destination.InputCollection[0];

IDTSVirtualInput90 vInput = input.GetVirtualInput();

// Iterate through the virtual input column collection.

foreach (IDTSVirtualInputColumn90 vColumn in vInput.VirtualInputColumnCollection)


// Call the SetUsageType method of the destination

// to add each available virtual input column as an input column.

destDesignTime.SetUsageType(input.ID, vInput, vColumn.LineageID, DTSUsageType.UT_READONLY);

Dynamic Mapping For Source/Destination

Is this possible?

SSIS Database Table To Flat File Destination With Column Headings

I have a simple enough task to complete that I can€™t seem to find the answer to.

The task is this €“

Select table x from the database and write it to a flat file complete with that tables column headings.

Now I€™ve managed to set up an ole db datasource and selected the table and I€™ve also linked it to the flat file output.  So now I can generate a flat file from the database.  However no column headings appear in the flat file. 

I can€™t seem to find anywhere (like a checkbox) that will also output the column headings to the flat file. 

Now I can add in Headings manually in the properties of the Flat File Destination object but the columns that appear in the flat file don€™t appear to be in the order that I requested them in the SQL.

So the question is how do I automatically have the column headings appear for flat file output (ideally without me having to manually add them in).

If it can€™t be done and I have to use a script instead then would anyone have an example script of how to do it?

Thanks in advance for anyone who manages to answer this.

Complication - When Mapping Columns To OLEDB Destination In C#

Hi  ,
I have a Package Consisting of the following (tried to portray the flow below)
1) OLE DB Source (Which I set the sql command for in code)

2) Rowcount Transform (Counts the Source Records)
3) Derived Column (Adds An AuditJobID ,ExecutionStartDate)

4) Conditional Split (Splits New and Updated Record - My Implementation of SCD) 


                                        /                                                         /
5)  Rowcount Transform (Counts the New Records)                       Rowcount Transform (Counts Update Records)     

                            /                                                                                   /
6)  OLEDB Destination                                                                         OLEDB Update Command
I am trying to map the columns in the "OLEDB Destination" with c# ,with the following

IDTSInput90 input = oledbDestination.InputCollection[0];

IDTSVirtualInput90 vInput = input.GetVirtualInput();
As soon as I call the input.GetVirtualInput(); method I get a com exception ,Seem that I am missing a

VirtualInputColumnCollection on the component ,but can't seem to figure out why.

When I drop the all the other components and only keep the OLEDb Source and OLEDB Destination with a flow between them , the call to input.GetVirtualInput() doe not fail with a com exception and I can mapping normally
I really need some guidance on the above.

DTS- Destination Column Name Has Spaces Causing Error
I am using Advantage ODBC 6.2 to connect to a Advantage Data Server to
push data from a SQL table into this server.  I can view the data from
the ADS with DTS and I can insert data by using "Insert into TempTable ("Last
Name","First Name") values ('test','test)" from a Execute SQL Statement. The issue is when I build
up a DTS package to pull from SQL into the Advantage ODBC, I get a
"missing closing ")"" error.  I have narrowed it down to the column
names in the destination table having spaces (Last Name, First Name,
and a bunch of others.  DBA 101 here).  How do I beat this?

I have tried editing the destination column names in disconnected edit
by adding the double quotes but get a "Column Name '"Last Name"' not
found" error.  Wrapping them with [] doesn't work.  I think this is a
limit on Advantage.

When I try to use Advantage OLE DB, I get an 'Ace32.dll must be newer
then the other dll" error.  I am afraid of upgrading Ace32.dll and not
break other things.


So with this said my two questions:

How do I get the destniation column names wrapped in double quotes when using transformations?


Is there a way I can do an Insert into Advantage connection(column names) values (Select Values from SQL Server connection)?

SSIS: For Each Loop: Destination Error
Hey Guys.

I am new to using SSIS and need some assistance. I am trying to create a package that will loop through a folder of DBF files and import them into SQL server. Here is what I did so far:
    - Created a Foreach Loop Container with a Data Flow Task within
    - Created a string variable to store the file names
    - Created the OLE DB Source and Destinations
    - Created the connection manager with dBASE III Extended Property pointed to the folder where the files are.

When I try to set the OLE Source to use the file name variable, I get an error stating that there is no Destination table defined. I get the same error when I try to setup the OLE Destination. How do I resolve this issue? I want it to import each file into its own table. Is there any way to reuse this file name variable as the destination table name?

Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Am new to SSIS and developing a component which pulls data from a staging table and drops them into another table in the same database.
Am using a
1) OLE DB Source to get the data from the staging table.
2) OLE DB Destination to insert or push the data into another table of the same database.
3) Script component to get the error rows and to update the staging table column with a flg value.
The rows that throw an error like primary key violation, or any other error should be redirected to the script component and the process should get completed.
The Error Output of the OLE DB Destination doesnt show any columns to be selected for Redirect Row option
The script executes without any error and the records are shown in error path but the records are not updated in the DB.
This is what i have in the script

Public Class ScriptMain

Inherits UserComponent

Dim sqlConn As SqlConnection

Dim sqlCmd As SqlCommand

Dim connMgr As IDTSConnectionManager90
Dim txnIdParam As SqlParameter

Dim errorDescParam As SqlParameter


Public Overrides Sub AcquireConnections(ByVal Transaction As Object)

connMgr = Me.Connections.ErrorConnection

sqlConn = CType(connMgr.AcquireConnection(Nothing), SqlConnection)

End Sub

Public Overrides Sub PreExecute()

sqlCmd = New SqlCommand("UPDATE STG_TRANSACTION SET ERROR_FLG='Y' AND ERROR_DESC=@errorDescParam WHERE TXN_ID=@txnIdParam ")

fueltxnIdParam = New SqlParameter("@txnIdParam", SqlDbType.BigInt)

errorDescParam = New SqlParameter("@errorDescParam", SqlDbType.VarChar)



End Sub

Public Overrides Sub Input0_ProcessInputRow(ByVal Row As Input0Buffer)

sqlCmd.Parameters("@txnIdParam").Value = Row.TXNID

sqlCmd.Parameters("@errorDescParam").Value = Row.ErrorCode

End Sub

End Class
Pleas let me know the solution and any help will be appreciated.

[SSIS] Excel Composant Return Null In A Varchar Column When The Cell Contains Only Numbers

But when a line contains only numbers (even if the header is a varchar), the Excel component returns a null value. 

If i manually edit the cell with numbers inside using the edit/format cell as a text value : now the Excel component understands that it is a varchar.

Can you help me please to solve this problem ?

Many thanks in advance for your answer.

Problem With Excel Source To OLEDB Mapping
I have an Excel source, which I have hooked up to a Data Conversion task. I have defined "Output Aliases" for all my columns in the Data Conversion task.
However, when I try to map the columns from the Data Conversion task to the table columns, there is a list of column names, which do not correspond to the names I defined as "Output Aliases."
For example, one of the Output Aliases is "col1." However, when I go to map it, the column name is not "col1" but "My Excel file.col1".
Why is this happening? I have not had this problem before.

Mapping Many Values In Column To One Value
Hi Guys,here is my story.

I have a table with values stored in it and the Code Column contains sets of values that need to be mapped to a single value.For example i want the values ALMW,ARBAC to map to AL ARB and the values ARBIT,ARBOP,ARBSC to map to CU ARB and A1JAN,A1FEB,A1MAR,A1APR,A1MAY,A1JUN should map to AL AVG.

The values under Code are already in a database table and the ones under New Code are the new mappings for the values under code and are not in the database.

This table is referenced by other tables for the Code and i want those references to be done to the New Code instead.How do i modify the existing table or design a new table to preserve the current Codes and also map them to the new Code.

Code New Code

In god we trust,everything else we test.

Dynamic Column Mapping
Hi everyone,
So I have to export from a SQL 2005 table to a dBaseIV table using SSIS. Easy enough, however the catch is that the tables being exported will vary. I can send variables to the the package calling the sql table name and creating the DBF file with the same columns on the fly.

The problem is mapping the columns. From what I've been reading there is no way to alter the mapping in a package at runtime. I was hoping that there would be some sort of auto mapping setting that would match on the field names but I guess not. Anybody run in to this issue and have a work around? Thanks in advance....

Error: 0xC001C012 at FELC Loop thru report defs: ForEach Variable Mapping number 4 to variable "User::Parameters_xml" cannot be applied.

I have tried changing the type of the Parameters_xml variable to Object and String, but I get the same error.  Any ideas?

Derived Column Usage When Column Does Not Exist In Source (but Exists In Destination)

Posted - 09/10/2007 :  15:53:26    

Hey all - got a problem that seems like it would be simple (and probably is : )

I'm importing a csv file into a SQL 2005 table and would like to add 2 columns that exist in the table but not in the csv file. I need these 2 columns to contain the current month and year (columns are named CM and CY respectively). How do I go about adding this data to each row during the transformation? A derived column task? Script task? None of these seem to be able to do this for me.

Here's a portion of the transformation script I was using to accomplish this when we were using SQL 2000 DTS jobs:

' Visual Basic Transformation Script

' Copy each source column to the destination column
Function Main()
DTSDestination("CM") = Month(Now)
DTSDestination("CY") = Year(Now)
DTSDestination("Comments") = DTSSource("Col031")
DTSDestination("Manufacturer") = DTSSource("Col030")
DTSDestination("Model") = DTSSource("Col029")
DTSDestination("Last Check-in Date") = DTSSource("Col028")
Main = DTSTransformStat_OK
End Function
Hopefully this question isnt answered somewhere else, but I did a quick search and came up with nothing. I've actually tried to utilize the script component and the "Row" object, but the only properties I'm given with that are the ones from the source data.

thanks in advance!

#Error Displayed In Ntext Column Exported To Excel

I have exported a report to excel that contains an ntext column. The exported excel file shows "#Error" for the ntext column in some of the rows. If I see the same report in reporting services I don't see any problem. I have checked that this is not any issue with the length of the text. Could you suggest me something on this?

Insert Data Into A Destination Column Which Doesnt Have An Input Column
Hi, I was wondering how I can complete a column (which doesnt have an input one) with data.
For example:

I have a sql query which bring data of 3 columns

1        MIKE           MORGAN
2        SARA           JOHANES

So, I will insert that data in a FLAT FILE CONNECTION MANAGER, which I configured with 3 columns and I did the corresponding mapping in the FLAT FILE DESTINTATION.

Now, If I add one more column in the FLAT FILE CONNECTION MANAGER, I will not have it mapped to a input one, obviously. So, what I need is to add one more column to the flat file destination and complete it with zeros values in it.

Probably I can solve this part by introducing a DERIVED COLUMN and there I can configure the zeros that I want to add to the column. But I'm not sure if I can do that without having a input column.
So, the question will be, how can I add one column to a flat file which doesnt have a input and introduce any value that I want to it?
Hope I was clear
Thanks for your help.

Left Joins And Column Mapping

I am trying to understand the concept of left joins. I have the following query and am not sure about the left joins.

I am familiar with joins but the left join below is a little confusing.Below it seems like a third table is involved. Is this because there is no column to map to in the from table? Also, since tables sl and sc are mapped based on the SecurityID column and sl and ex do not have any common columns, table sc is mapped to ex using the left join? Which table's data will be returned based on the left join?

I checked the column type for the Exchange column(ex.LSECode) and it appears varchar(3).

SELECT SecurityID = sl.SecurityID
, Security = RTRIM(sec.Name) + ' - ' + RTRIM(sec.Description)
, Ticker = ISNULL(ids.RIC, ids.Ticker)
, Sedol = ids.Sedol
, ISIN = ids.ISIN
, Exchange = ex.LSECode
, Country = cty.iso_code

FROM #SecList sl

JOIN SecurityClassification sc
ON sl.SecurityID = sc.securityId
AND sc.source = 99

LEFT JOIN exchange_table ex
ON sc.ExchangeID =

Thanks in advance!!!

Column Mapping In A Custom Component
Does anyone know how to get destination coulmns to show up in the advanced editor for a custom component? I have a custom flat file destination component that builds the output based on a specific layout. It works as long as the upstream column names match my output names. What I want is to allow non-matching columns to be mapped by the user as they can in a stock flat file destination. The closest that I have been able to come is to get the "column mappings" tab to show up and populate the "Available Input Columns" by setting ExternalmetadataColumnCollection.IsUsed to true on the input. The problem is that the "Available destination columns" box is always empty. I have tried the IsUsed property on the output and pretty much every other property that I could find. On the Input and Output properties all of my columns show up under the output as both External and Output columns. Is there a separate collection for "destination" columns that I can't find? It's getting a little frustrating, is this something that can be done or do I have to write a custom UI to make it happen?

SSIS Date Mapping
I'm creating a DTSX that will load flat file data into a table. Pretty easy, eh? Not with dates and times ...

The column in the destination table is a datetime data-type.

The date format in the source flat file is "m/d/yyyy" ("5/27/2007"). I know it doesn't have a time portion, long story!

When I create the package and transform the flat file data into the SQL Server Destination, the table column returns as a timestamp datatype. Moreover, there's no mechanism (that I've found) to force the destination datatype to datetime. There's DB Date, DB Time, FileTime, etc ... but no plain-old datetime.

Any help? An answer? An online resource? A book?

Thanks a mill'

SSIS Parameter Mapping ?
I have migrated a DTS 2000 package to an SSIS package.

Half of it works fine, when stored procedures are called that don't use parameters they work fine on SSIS.

However when a SP is called with a parameter it can't find the parameter name ?

I have mapped the parameter under "parameter mappings" , the parameter is a simple date value
which is created at the beginning of the SSIS package in a SQL task.

it is saved as a global variable , and i have mapped this as the parameter , yet it still can't find the param. name ?

any sugestions ?

Map One Generic Input Column To Multiple Destination Column
I have a stored proc I am updating in an OLEDB Command from the results of a Transform Script Component. The Stored Proc has over 65 input parameters, most of them have a NULL passed in. I dont want to create output columns in the Transform Script Component for all of them to map them from the "Available Input Columns" to "Available Destination Columns".
I want to create 3 or 4 generic Output columns for their data type - say IntegerOutput (datatype Int), DateTimeOut (datatype datetime) and so on. The I want to map these generic columns in the OLEDB Command as Available Input Columns" to multiple "Available Destination Columns" - wherever the datatype matches the input column.
But the  OLEDB Command Column Mappings let me map One to One only. This will create a huge and unnecessary workload for me to develop and maintain - when I tell you I have 3 such stored procedures, all of whose interfaces are exactly same and for which I can create similar Output columns in the Transform Script Component.
So how do I go about doing this the smart way?
thanks in advance!
