Capture Data From Excel File And Load Into Staging Table - Annual Count

Jul 31, 2013

I am working on an HR project and I have one final component that I am stuck on.

I have an Excel File that is loaded into a folder every month.

I have built a package that captures the data from the excel file and loads it into a staging table (transforming a few bits of data).

I then combine it with another table in a view.

I have another package that loads that view into a Master table and I have added a Slowly Changing Dimension so that it only updates what has been changed. (it’s a table of all employees, positions, hire dates, term dates etc).

Our HR wants to have this data in a report (with charts and tables) and they wanted it to be in a familiar format. So I made a data connection with Excel loading the data into a series of pivot tables.

I have one final component that i cant seem to figure out. At the end of every year I need to capture a count of all Active Employees and all Termed employees for that year. Just a count.

So the data will look like this.

|2010|447 |57 |
|2011|419 |67 |
|2012|420 |51 |

The data is in one table labeled [EEMaster]. To test the count I have the following.

SELECT COUNT([PersNo]) AS HistoricalHC
FROM [dbo].[EEMaster]
WHERE [ChangeStatus] = 'Current' AND [EmpStatusName] = 'Active'

this returns the HistoricalHC for 2013 as 418.

FROM [dbo].[EEMaster]
WHERE [ChangeStatus] = 'Current' AND [EmpStatusName] = 'Withdrawn' AND [TermYear] = '2013'

This returns the Number of Termed employees for 2013 as 42.

I have created a table to report from called [dbo.TORateFY] that I have manually entered previous years data into.

|2010|447 |57 |
|2011|419 |67 |
|2012|420 |51 |

I need a script (or possibly a couple of scripts) that will add the numbers every year with the year that the data came from.

(so on Dec 31st this package will run and add |2013|418|42| to the next row, and so on.

How To Store Column's Value From A Flat File Into A Package Variable?

Oct 7, 2007

I have a few flat files that will be retrieved from some SFTP server. One of the flat file will act as a terminal file where it will specify the total number of records expected in each other the flat file.

Data in the terminal.txt
FileName TotalRecords
File1 1000
File2 1500
File3 2000

So, before transforming the data from the flat file sources into the target destination, i wish to do a row count checking for each of the flat file source to make sure that the number of records in the flat file source is tally with the number of records specify in the terminal.txt file. I'm able to get the number of records in each of the flat file by using the RowCount component but don't know how to get the data out from the terminal.txt file in order to make a rowcount comparison.

Can any1 help me on this? Or is there any other way we can do to make sure that the flat file source is alright before proceeding with the data transformation task?

Integration Services :: Data Load From Flat File To Database

Sep 22, 2015

I am having difficulties loading data from a flat file to a SQL Database. I am able to load some data but the rest gets kicked out for the following reasons:

1 – The field is varchar 50 and I would like to convert it to a date field
2 – The field contain periods (.) (Only 1 period in each row)
3 – The field contain blanks (NULLS)

How do I create a derived column that will bypass blanks (Nulls) and remove periods (.) in each row then convert column to a date field in SSIS? Looking for steps to create a derived date column using SSIS (derived task); convert it to a date column (09-19-2015); use functions to redirect the nulls and possibly remove the period (.)?

[b][u]Sample Data[/u][/b]
Column 3 (Varchar 50)       Need to convert to date; remove periods, and bypass nulls(blanks)

SSIS Data Flow Task Fails To Load All Text From Flat File

Jan 2, 2007

Hi Guys,

have a flat file which is loaded into the database on a daily basis.
The file contains rows of strings which I load into a table,
specifically to a column of length 8000.

The string has a length of 690, but the format is like 'xxxxxx xx xx..'
and so on, where 'xxxx' represents data. So there are spaces, etc present in the middle.

I used SQL 2000 DTS to load the files in, and it was just a Column
Transformation with the Col001 from the text file loading straight to
my table column. After the load, if I select len(col) it gives me 750
for all rows.

Once I started to migrate this to SSIS, I
allocated the Control Flow Task and specified the flat file source and
the oledb destination, and gave the output column a type of String and
output column width of 8000. But when I run the data flow task it
copies only 181 or 231 characters out of the 750 required.
I feel it stops where it finds the SPACES and skips the rest.

specified row delimiters or CR, and LF. I checked the file under
UltraEdit and there were no special characters in the file that would
cause the problem.

Any suggestions how I can get it to load the full data?

SQL 2012 :: Load Consolidated Members Into MDS Staging Table - Hierarchy Name

May 28, 2015

I'm attempting to load some data into an explicit hierarchy in MDS 2012 via the staging table and struggling with the HierarchyName field. Specifically I'm loading data into stg.[Entity Name]_Consolidated and using the exact name of the explicit hierarchy I've set up in the front end web application.

Originally my hierarchy was labelled "Reporting Hierarchy" and when loading the data into staging using this name then running the batch from the Import Data screen I can see the error message "Error - The HierarchyName is missing or is not valid.". I've checked the table mdm.tblHierarchy and can see that the name there is exactly as it was in the staging table and have since renamed the hierarchy as "Reporting_Hierarchy" with the same results.

SQL Server 2012 :: How To Create Staging Table To Handle Incremental Load

Jan 2, 2014

We are designing a Staging layer to handle incremental load. I want to start with a simple scenario to design the staging.

In the source database There are two tables ex, tbl_Department, tbl_Employee. Both this table is loading a single table at destination database ex, tbl_EmployeRecord.

The query which is loading tbl_EmployeRecord is, SELECT EMPID,EMPNAME,DEPTNAME FROM tbl_Department D INNER JOIN tbl_Employee E ON D.DEPARTMENTID=E.DEPARTMENTID.

Now, we need to identify incremental load in tbl_Department, tbl_Employee and store it in staging and load only the incremental load to the destination.

The columns of the tables are,

SQL Server 2012 :: Dynamically Map Metadata In A Data Flow Task

Oct 1, 2014

I am tasked with truncating and reloading tables from one server to another. Company policy prevents cross-server queries, but allows SSIS packages with cross-server connections. I am doing this for about 25 tables. I have the table names in a single table & I have created an FEL to execute tasks against each table one-by-one. It works fine to truncate all the tables. I run into issues, though, with the DataFlowTask. I'm able to tell it which server & table to dynamically connect from and to, but it doesn't know how to map the metadata. They're the exact same columns and field names in both source & destination.

Flat File Connection Manager Throws Error When A Column Gets Added To The Flat File

Dec 27, 2006


I have a situation where a tab limited text file is used to populate a sql server table.

The tab limited text file comes from a third party vendor. There are fixed number of columns we need to export to the sql server table. However the third party may add colums in the text file. Whenenver the text file has an added column (which we dont need to import) the build fails since the flat file connection manager does not create the metadata for it again. The problem goes away  where I press the button "Reset Columns" since it builds the metadata then. Since we need to build the tables everyday we cannot automate it using SSIS because the metadata does not change automatically. Is there a way out in SSIS?

Output Column Width Not Refected In The Flat File That Is Created Using A Flat File Destination?

The outputcolumnwidth seems to be the same as the inputcolumnwidth. Is there any other setting that I am possibly missing or is this a possible defect?

Any inputs will be appreciated.

Insert From Flat File Where Column 1 Not In Table

Aug 7, 2007

Hi Guys,

I hope this is easy stuff for you..
First of all i searched the forum but didnt exactly find what iam searching for:

I have a File folder which contains 1..n Files of the same type.
The files contain a DateValue at the beginning of each row. I now want to read the first Record of the file - extract the datevalue and search in my Importtable if there are any records with that Date. If there are allready Records with this date i know i allready imported that file and skip it in my For each File Container. If no records where found I want to copy them from the file to the table.

So I have a flatfile source and thoght I just make an oledb command task afterwards which looks like "Select count(*) from Import where Processdate = ?. and then a conditional split if the count == 0 or not... but i have problems getting the Count value out auf the OLD DB Command Task because everytime I try to add an outputcolumn i get the message: "An Output cannot be added to the output collection" and since there is no possibility to map an expression to the result...

I tried to workaround the problem using a lookup task.. but that seems to be the wrong way.

thanks for your help

Change Flat File Source Dynamically

May 21, 2007

I am a relative newbie to SSIS. I have been tasked with writing packages to import data from our clients. We have about 100 clients. Each client has a few different file formats. None of the clients have the same format as each other. We load files from each client each day. Each day the file name changes. I have done all of my current development work with a constant file name in a text file connection manager.

Ultimately we will write a VB application for the computer operator to select the flat file to load and the SSIS package to load it with. I had been planning on accomplishing this thru the SSIS command line interface. Can I specify the flat file to load via a variable that is passed through the command line? Do I need to use a Script Component to take the variable and assign it to the connection manager?

Is there a better way to do this? I have seen glimpses of a VB interface to SSIS. Maybe that is a better way to kick off the packages from a VB app?

Extract Column Data From Flat File Error Output

Dec 10, 2007

Hi Friend,

I am stuck with a problem and need your help. As we know, all columns that go to error flow of flat file source connection are displayed as a single column e.g. FlatFileSourceErrorOutputColumn, but my requirement is to extract the first column value from this FlatFileSourceErrorOutputColumn, my data is dilimeted by "|" pipe operator. I have created a script component to deal with this. However if we take FlatFileSourceErrorOutputColumn column as input column in script component, it comes as BLOB data. I wrote below code in transformation script component to extract BLOB data from column in string form and then do a Left function search to take first column out.

When I am running this script component I am getting '??????????' question marks as a result in Row.Pname.

Can anyone please help me understand if I am doing anything wrong in this script or suggest a better way to take the data out?

I appreciate your help.

Public Overrides Sub Input0_ProcessInputRow(ByVal Row As Input0Buffer)



Dim Error_Data As String

Dim Column_1 As String

Dim Len As Integer

Dim Buffer As Byte()

Buffer = Row.FlatFileSourceErrorOutputColumn.GetBlobData(0, CInt(Row.FlatFileSourceErrorOutputColumn.Length))

Error_Data = System.Text.Encoding.Unicode.GetString(Buffer)

Len = Error_Data.IndexOf("|")

Column_1 = Left(Error_Data, Len - 1)

Row.Pname = Column_1

How Do I Import A Varying Column Width Flat File Into A Table Using SSIS?

Apr 24, 2008

How do i import a Varying Column Width Flat file into a Table using SSIS?

I have a flat file that has 4 columns with varying width
Like I should read the file as
Col 1 - (1 to 10 Characters)
Col 2 - (12 to 21 Characters)
Col 3 - (22 to 35 Characters)
Col 4 - (36 to 38 Characters)
At the end of the record is a "LF"

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.

Dynamically Populate Flat File Connection String

Mar 12, 2008

I tried to follow the widely talked about method to dynamically populate the connection string property of my flatfileconnection manager from a variable. I keep getting the following non-fatal error.

TITLE: Microsoft Visual Studio

Nonfatal errors occurred while saving the package:
Error at Package [Connection manager "FFCM"]: The file name ""C:ProjectsSSISHLoadTOutputOut.csv"" specified in the connection was not valid.

Error at Package: The result of the expression "@[User::CsvFullFileName]" on property "ConnectionString" cannot be written to the property. The expression was evaluated, but cannot be set on the property.

Here is what I am trying to do.
I have a foreach loop that iterates through a list of xml config files and reads the config information including the destination csv file name and does a data transformation.
So I created a flatfile connection to a csv file did my data mappings.
Created a package level variable to hold the destination file path
In the Flat file conn. manager's properties -> expression -> set the @[User::CsvFullFileName] (which even evaluates fine)

When I try to run the package I keep getting the above mentioned non-fatal error..I checked the path and it is valid. I even tried

the c:\projects\...notation and the UNC path notation...all seem to give the same error

Anyone experience this before ? any thoughts would be appreciated.

Dynamically Creating SSIS Package For Each Flat File

Apr 18, 2007

Trying to figure out the best method of reading in a number of flat files, all with different number of columns and data types and outputting them to a database.

Here's the problem: They are EBCDIC encoded and some of the columns are packed decimal. I've set up one package that takes the flat file, unpacks the decimal (Using UnpackDecimal component) and then sending the rest through a second component to go from EBCDIC -> ASCII.

What I need is a way to do this for every flat file based on the schema for that flat file. One current solution is to write a script/app to create the .dtsx XML file and then execute that for each flat file. It appears like this may be possible, but I haven't gotten far enough to know for sure. So my questions are this:

1) Is there an easier way to do this (ie somehow feed the schema to the package and use it to dynamically set up the column makers and determine which columns get fed to the unpack decimal component.

2) If there isn't a better way, will dynamically creating the .dtsx XML file based on the necessary input/output columns for each flat file work? If so, what is a good source of information on this (information about how the .dtsx XML file is set up, what needs to be changed/what doesn't, etc).
