How To Import In Special Character Delimited Text File By Using SSIS ?

Sep 26, 2007


I would like to know how to import in the custom delimited text file by using SSIS.
For example, instead by using tab or comma delimited, I use this character : ''
The reason is the delimited format that SSIS provided is too common such as colon, semi colon, tab, comma and pipeline.
I have the data that the user also key in the pipeline there. So I am thinking to separate the field by using this special character, but cannot see if there is anyway to import in by using SSIS.

Please help to share the solution on this :


best regards,

Special Character;strange

Oct 6, 2004

I had to update pricelist at local-db on the basis of prices in another SQL by matching the description. When i JOIN the tables, no record gets displayed, but the descrptions at both tables were exactly the same i believed. Took a lot of time in identifying the discrepancy; the data was like this:

--(0 row(s) affected)
--(0 row(s) affected)
--(1 row(s) affected)
:rolleyes: I believe, ENTER has some value within a field.

Special Character '[' In MSSQL 2005

Nov 7, 2007


I am using MSSQL 2005 with the compatability mode set to 2000.Now, one of my String columns in a table has data in the following format:


Now issuing the following SELECT query in the table does not work :

Select * from TAB1 where col1 like 'ABC[%'

ie, no row gets selected.However, the following query works:

Select * from TAB1 where col1 like 'ABC%'

Looks like '[' is a special character :( Now, how do i work around this so that i can select strings starting with "ABC[".Please help.

Would Special Character Cause Insertion Problem?

Oct 12, 2007

Hi,SQL env: sql server 2000Target column of insertion: varchar(15)Case, a var is made up of a character of the following characters(random selection):A,B,C,D,E,$,!,%,^,F,G,H,I,J,K,L,M,N,O,P,Q,R,S,T,U, V,W,X,Y,Z,&,*,(,)and a few numbers (random selection), and thenvar = ran1&ran2I'm experiencing intermit sql errorIs it because I did not include the string with quotes likevar = "ran1 & ran2"or the first random seletion may include special character and thatmay cause insertion error randomly?Probably the former is more likely. And I've added quotes for thevar (programming language shouldn't really matter, int type usuallywithout quotes while strings need quotes).What's your thought?Thanks.

Special Character In Dynamic TSQL

Oct 8, 2007

Hello all

I am trying to update a colunm with the value (Dynamically).

'UPDATE ' + @TABLE + ' SET '+ @FIELD + ' = '''+ @VALUE +'''

well It works fine until @Value contains quotation for instance @value = O'hare Airport
results in termination of the statement because of single quote after O in O'Hare. Is there any way I can see it works

Also suppose if its updating a field which can be say 10 charcters long and when @value has say 15 characters, it terminates. Is there anyway i can avoid this.

Patindex To Find Special Character And Next 6 Digits

Dec 6, 2007

I am creating a view to pull data for a UPS integration I am doing. I currently have this view where I pull my data from. All is well accept for my PATINDEX,

Currently I have this PATINDEX So when a user puts this into delivery instructions "#999999" UPS_FINAL returns 999999 which is good for me to use. But The PATINDEX will also grab all kinds of neat stuff out of the delivery instructions field when I really only want whatever is after the # sign in the field.

I am new to sql and dont quite understand how this search is working but I think I am in need of a better way to search the field


WHEN SUBSTRING(P21PLAY.dbo.p21_view_oe_hdr.delivery_instructions, PATINDEX('%[^a-z ]%', P21PLAY.dbo.p21_view_oe_hdr.delivery_instructions) + 1, 6) IS NULL

THEN dbo.Address_Table.ups_code

ELSE SUBSTRING(P21PLAY.dbo.p21_view_oe_hdr.delivery_instructions,
PATINDEX('%[^a-z ]%', P21PLAY.dbo.p21_view_oe_hdr.delivery_instructions) + 1, 6) END AS UPS_FINAL

What I am looking to accomplish is a SUBSTRING that will search delivery_instructions



TOP (100) PERCENT P21PLAY.dbo.p21_view_oe_pick_ticket.pick_ticket_no,
P21PLAY.dbo.p21_view_oe_hdr.order_no, P21PLAY.dbo.p21_view_oe_hdr.customer_id,

P21PLAY.dbo.p21_view_oe_pick_ticket.carrier_id AS Carrier,
P21PLAY.dbo.p21_view_oe_pick_ticket.carrier_id AS Supplier,


-----------Looks for special character and returns next 6 spaces as UPS_Shipper----------

SUBSTRING(P21PLAY.dbo.p21_view_oe_hdr.delivery_instructions, PATINDEX('%[^a-z ]%',

P21PLAY.dbo.p21_view_oe_hdr.delivery_instructions) + 1, 6)
AS UPS_Shipper,

------------------Checks view for email address or assigns alternate------------------
(CASE WHEN charindex('@', p21_view_contacts.email_address) > 0 THEN p21_view_contacts.email_address ELSE

'' END) AS alternate_address,

'Y' AS QVN, '' AS failureaddress,


------------When carrier_id is not one of these # then Null; else ------------------------------

CASE WHEN P21PLAY.dbo.p21_view_oe_pick_ticket.carrier_id NOT IN (105188, 105191, 105194, 105197, 105200,

105203, 105206, 105209, 105212) THEN NULL

----------------- Looks for special Character in delivery_instructions; if NULL then ups_code;

PATINDEX('%[^a-z ]%', P21PLAY.dbo.p21_view_oe_hdr.delivery_instructions) + 1, 6) END AS UPS_FINAL

FROM dbo.Address_Table INNER JOIN

Data Access :: Special Character In Password

Jul 9, 2015

There is a ">" character (right-angle bracket) inside my SQL Server password. When I supplied this password to the bcp utility, the ">" character was treated as an output redirection symbol. So the password was truncated at ">" and the bcp output got sent to a file with a name consisting of the rest of the password after ">". I'm using SQL Server 2012. I cannot use Windows authentication due to company policy. Is there a way to resolve this without changing the password?

NTEXT Special Character SQUARE Appearing Where A Return Should Be. How Do I Fix This?

Sep 17, 2006

I had to import some FileMaker Data into SQL Server 2005 and in the resume field a "SQUARE" special character is appearing everyplace that a return should be.

It has really messed up the formatting. I know how to use the updatetext in a cursor to replace the special character but I don't know what to replace the "SQUARE" special character with so the text is displaying a new line rather then this "SQUARE" character.

Any help would be appreicated.

How To Specify A Special Character As A Row Delimiter In The Flat File Connection Manager?

Jan 16, 2007

I have a gazillion text files, each with dozens of records. The fields are pipe-delimited, the end of each record is marked by ASCII char code 28.


05|11900307|1|CO|Gervais|Neil|NG8880|F|540|0|0|0|T|0|||F|||F 05|11900307|2|AO|MARSHALL|BRAD|BM7843|F|510|60|0|0|T|0|||F|||F

The " " is the Chr(28). The line above should parse into 2 rows...

**** time passes ****

An interesting discovery - if I paste that " " directly into the row delimiter box, without quotes or brackets, I get two records!

So I found at least one answer.

Is there another?

Special Character Problems With SSIS Data Reader Using ODBC Driver For DB2

Sep 5, 2007

in SSIS I read data from a DB2 database on AS400 using the Client Access ODBC Driver for DB2 from IBM and write it to a SQL Server database. Since it does not work using the odbc driver as data source directly, I use a data reader component with .net providersodbc.
Some special characters were not translated correctly when read from DB2. They show up as ? in the SQL Server target table.

I tried to change the client locale in the ODBC connection properties but it did not help me. I tried changing all other settings in odbc but it still does not work.

In dts I could source all the data without this problems and good speed using the same nodbc driver.

The OLEDB Providers delivered with SSIS do not work in SSIS or I am too stupid to configure them correctly. They are even too slow as I explained above.

I cannot use the MS OLEDB Provider for DB2, because it works only in Enterprize Edition and we only have the Standard Edition.

Thus, only using Client Access ODBC Driver for DB2 with net providersodbc (as bridge) is performant enough and works on Itanium. But how to work around the problem with the special characters?

Best regards,

Transact SQL :: Extracting From 3 Related Tables And Including MAX Function

Oct 5, 2015

I have these 3 tables in a database for printed chamber music works:

Table INSTRUMENTS: List of musical instruments
    Column ID          -- int, primary key
    Column sInstrument -- string

    Column ID          -- int, primary key
    Column lInstrument -- int, points to a row in table INSTRUMENTS via ID
    Column lMainItem   -- int, points to a row in table MAINITEMS via ID
    Column lInstrSeqNum -- int, sequential number of like instruments within one Main Item
Table MAINITEMS: List of chamber music works
    Column ID          -- int, primary key
    Column sItem       -- string
Each chamber music work (Main Item) requires an ensemble of musicians playing several instruments. Some of them may be the same, such as 2 violins. A classical quartet, for instance, consist of 2 violins, 1 viola and 1 cello. I am concerned here only with one of the instruments (although it may occur several times).

I want to extract a list of Main Items where the instrument is given (e.g., 'violin'),

And the maximum of PTRS_INSTRUMENTATION.lInstrSeqNum is a given number (e.g., 2).

Transact SQL :: Extracting Specific Data From One Field Using Charindex

Jul 20, 2015

I’ve got an issue with extracting specific data from one field using charindex. Here’s an example of the dataset:

Cl_nr Var_data

20059942 ?;;300134BL10;?;;;;;;
20059958 ;2698;020225PU20;?;;;;;;
20059975    ;;100777ST20;?;;;;;;

20059366 ;;1181750;31-12-2015;2;;;;;
20052712    ;;230626NO10;?;;;;;;

Goal is to get the data after the 2<sup>nd</sup> ; until the next ; starts. Ideal would be to catch everything between the 2<sup>nd</sup> ; en 3<sup>rd</sup> ; (number should be 10 characters).

If I try to select this data just using charindex it only goes until it finds the first ; (of course), what’s the best approach in this?
