SSIS - Excel Destination Column Mapping Error

Jun 25, 2007

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.

Jan 12, 2008

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

OLEDB Destination Error In SSIS Package Not Returning Error Column/desc

Aug 1, 2006

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.

Integration Services :: SSIS 2008 R2 - Add Columns To Existing Mapping With Destination DB Table

Sep 8, 2015

The only way to add a new column to an existing mapping that I know is to go to advanced editor and refresh. This however keeps only the default mapping (where the field names match), the rest is wiped out, so need to restore the mapping manually after that. Risky and annoying at the same time. Is there any alternative?

Integration Services :: Dynamic Column Mapping Between Excel And Fact Table

May 18, 2011

Have to create SSIS package for the below requirement:

I have source data in 2 excel files. Data from both these excel files should be loaded to the same single Fact table.

The column names in excel files and table are not same. I have a Reference table which has the column mappings between excel and Fact Table.

I have to refer this Reference Tabel for column mappings, plus i have to add some derived columns (Created_Date) to load the Fact_Table.

I have given a sample data structure below:

Source Data
OrderNumber     OrderQuantity     OrderDate
Order10001             100               01-01-2011
CustomerNumber      CustomerName     CustomerAddress

[Code] ....

Is there any way to handle this in SSIS?

SSIS Excel Destination Formatting Problems

Mar 31, 2008

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

Oct 31, 2006


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 Parameter Mapping With Oracle Data Type Mapping!

Mar 19, 2008

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!

SSIS Excel Destination Editor Date Formatting Issue

Apr 14, 2008

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?

Nvarchar(max) To Excel Destination Error

May 19, 2006

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

Feb 8, 2006

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. Is there a workaround for this?

Data Conversion Error On Excel Destination

Jan 9, 2007

I am inserting rows using OLEDBDestination and want to redirect all error rows to EXCEL Destination.

I have used Data Conversion Transformation to Convert all strings to Unicode string fields before sending it to Excel Destination.

But its gives the following error.

[Data Conversion [16]] Error: Data conversion failed while converting column 'A' (53) to column "Copy of A" (95). The conversion returned status value 8 and status text "DBSTATUS_UNAVAILABLE".

[Data Conversion [16]] Error: The "output column "Copy of A" (95)" failed because error code 0xC020908E occurred, and the error row disposition on "output column "Copy of A" (95)" specifies failure on error. An error occurred on the specified object of the specified component.

Can someone please tell me what should I do to make it work?

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

Mar 8, 2008

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

Complication - When Mapping Columns To OLEDB Destination In C#

Aug 28, 2007

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.

SSIS Database Table To Flat File Destination With Column Headings

Sep 8, 2006


I have a simple enough task to complete that I cant 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 Ive managed to set up an ole db datasource and selected the table and Ive 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 cant 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 dont 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 cant 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.

May 16, 2008

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: For Each Loop: Destination Error

Feb 19, 2007

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.
