Data Flow Task Error To Extract Data From Sql Server To Excel

Hi All,

I want to export data from SQL Server2005 to an Excel spreadsheet thru "Data Flow Task". I am using OLE DB for SQL Server for the source connection and a Connection To Excel as my destination source. The Excel spreadsheet (2003) exists and has the first row with column names. I don't have any warnings before trying to execute.

The SQL datable fileds are
i) ID - Int

ii) RefID
iii) txtRemarks - nvarchar(MAX)
iv) ddlWaterLevel - nvarchar(50)

While executing the tasks, I got the error
Error: 0xC0202025 at Data Flow Task, Excel Destination [427]: Cannot create an OLE DB accessor. Verify that the column metadata is valid.
Error: 0xC004701A at Data Flow Task, DTS.Pipeline: component "Excel Destination" (427) failed the pre-execute phase and returned error code 0xC0202025.

After analysing I found in the DataFlow --> Excel destination --> Advanced Editor for Excel Destination, the default data type for txtRemarks shows as "Unicode string [DT_WSTR]". But this is supposed to be "Unicode text stream [DT_NTEXT]". Even if I change the data type in the design time, It doesn't accept.

Please do help me out.

Extract Data From SQL 6.5

I need to get some data from an enormous, creaky old SQL 6.5 database.I know nothing about either the data schema (though I believe some sortof documentation exists), nor 6.5 for that matter, having come to SQLServer at 7.0.My clients need the data in comma delimited format.Please, can anyone suggest any possibilities? One thing that occurredto me might be to create an Access application, use an ODBC link to theSQL DB, and then leverage Access' not inconsiderable functionality toget the data out.Does anyone foresee any problems with this, or any better ways?Forever in your debt.Edward--The reading group's reading group:

Extract Data

I have the following data example,
Forest Ridge Dr
Whites St
Alba Rd

I wish to achieve the following,
Street StreetSuffix
Forest Ridge Dr
Whites St
Alba Rd

I have the following code
INSERT Addr2 (AddressID, LotNo, FlatNumber, HouseNum, Street, StreetSuffix, Locality,
PostCode, [State])
SELECT LotNo, FlatNumber, HouseNum, SUBSTRING(Street, 1, (PATINDEX('% %', Street))),
LTRIM(SUBSTRING(Street, (PATINDEX('% %', Street)), 20)), Locality, PostCode, [State]
FROM Addr1

But i get the following result which is no good!

Street StreetSuffix
Forest Forest
Whites Whites
Alba Alba

What am I doing wrong in the Street & StreetSuffix Functions above?

I have this working with a cursor but I'm trying to work out a set based solution as the cursor
takes way to long to complete.

In the Cursor I'm performing the code below per row of AddressID
SET @SpaceLength = (SELECT PATINDEX('% %', @Street))

SET @Suffix = (SELECT SUBSTRING(@Street, @SpaceLength, 20))

SET @Street = (SELECT SUBSTRING(@Street, 1, @SpaceLength))

Data Extract Question

Hi, I'm hoping someone has an idea or two on this topic. 
Basically I have three tables of data say tContact, tQuestion, tAnswer




I need to extract the data for the client and they would like to see
the data with one line per contact, but showing every answer to every
question... they would like the data formatted like this:

ContactID, Email, Name, Question1Answer, Question2Answer, Question3Answer, Question4Answer, etc........

Obviously to get the data I cansimply do an outerjoin to get all
contact data then all questions, and answers that exist... but that
will obviously return tabular data with one row per each
answer...  Does anyone have any ideas on how to do this using just
SQL?  I can pull the data and write a function that spits it out
to text using the Stringbuilder class and some logic, but I'm thinking
this must be possible in SQL natively... any help would be more than
appreciated.  Thanks in advance.

Modifying Data From Extract Before Import

Hi all,

Having some fun with an excel import.

I have a excel sheet that has data that needs to be UpSert'ed into 2
different tables. In addition, I need to use a value in the spreadsheet
to determine the PK from a reference data table, for one of the UpSert

That is all working now.

The thing I'm struggling with is something I am sure is quite simple -
but I'm not seeing a solution from attempts, googling or BOL.

2 of the columns I receive have either nothing, or X in them. The columns they go into are defined as BIT, NOT NULL.

So, in SQL it would be something relatively simple like:


When IsAvailable = 'X' then 1

When IsAvailable is null then 1



But I don't know how to do this to data that was in a spreadsheet, and
now is a resultset being handed from a task to another task.

to outline my current solution:

---- table 1 = this all works -------------

Excel Source --> MultiCast (For Table 1)-->Data conversion for
table1-->:Sort for Table1--> Merge Join for table 1 (left Outer
join) as 'left' leg

Table1 Source --> Sort Table1 --> Merge Join for table 1 (left Outer join) as 'right' leg

Merge Join for table 1 --> Conditional Lplit for table1

Conditional Split for table1 (table1 source PK is null) -->Insert Into Table1 Destination

Conditional Split for table1 (table1 source PK is not null) -->Update Table1 OLE DB Command

---- table 2 = this needs to be able to convert X/NULL to BIT -------------

MultiCast (For Table 2)-->Copy Column for Table2 -->Data
Conversion for Table 2-->table3 lookup to get FK-->Sort for
Table2 merge-->Merge Join for table 2 (left outer join) as 'left' leg

Table2 Source --> Sort Table2 --> Merge Join for table 2 (left outer join) as 'right' leg

Merge Join for table 2 --> Conditional split for table 2

Conditional split for table 2(table2 source PK in null) -->insert into table 2

Conditional split for table 2(table2 source PK in not null) -->update table 2 ole db command


Now, if I correct the spreadsheet to have 0's and 1's in the two
column, then the process above works. But I cannot (yet) force business
to do that.

If tried to use SQL Command for the excel source, but there is limited
functionality on the command - I cannot do SQL coalese, isnull or case
statements, which would allow me to resolve that data at source.

I've tried to use derived columns to alter the columns. I think that
the REPLACE (IsAvailable, VariableContainingX,VariableContaining1)
might work to change X's to 1, but that doesn't resolve the NULL issue.

I've tried to use a script component to handle the conversion - which
REALLY feels like a bad way to do this - the .Net script is wrote was: script code-------------

Imports System

Imports System.Data

Imports System.Math

Imports Microsoft.SqlServer.Dts.Pipeline.Wrapper

Imports Microsoft.SqlServer.Dts.Runtime.Wrapper

Imports Microsoft.SqlServer.Dts

Public Class ScriptMain

Inherits UserComponent

Public Overrides Sub Input0_ProcessInputRow(ByVal Row As Input0Buffer)

If Not (Row.EndOfRowset) Then

(Row.IsDotComVanEnabled_IsNull) Or (Row.IsDotComVanEnabled.Equals("X"))

Row.IsDotComVanEnabled = "1"

End If

(Row.IsStoreCollectionEnabled_IsNull) Or
(Row.IsStoreCollectionEnabled.Contains("X")) Then

Row.IsStoreCollectionEnabled = "1"

End If


End If

End Sub

End Class


I also tried it like this:

----------------1st draft .Net script code--------

Imports System

Imports System.Data

Imports System.Math

Imports Microsoft.SqlServer.Dts.Pipeline.Wrapper

Imports Microsoft.SqlServer.Dts.Runtime.Wrapper

Imports Microsoft.SqlServer.Dts

Public Class ScriptMain

Inherits UserComponent

Public Overrides Sub Input0_ProcessInputRow(ByVal Row As Input0Buffer)

(Row.IsDotComVanEnabled_IsNull) Or (Row.IsDotComVanEnabled.Equals("X"))

Row.IsDotComVanEnabled = "1"

End If

(Row.IsStoreCollectionEnabled_IsNull) Or
(Row.IsStoreCollectionEnabled.Contains("X")) Then

Row.IsStoreCollectionEnabled = "1"

End If

End Sub

End Class


Those both threw the following error;

-------------error information-----------------

Script Component has encountered an exception in user code:

PROJECT NAME: ScriptComponent_a333140d269b413bb1bddef390da7e16

Object reference not set to an instance of an object.

Extract Exchange 2003 Data

There is mention of a OLE DB for Exchange 2000 but nothing for Exchange 2003. For example, A company report on time spent on various categories in a staff's calendar, etc. I would like to use SQl 2005 SSIS to extract and reporting services to report. Why is this so difficult?

Extract Pieces Of Data From Excel

In Integration Services I am trying to extract pieces of information from Excel. I would like to select just information from one cell but when I do that I get an error. What I'm typing in is:

SELECT *, Now() FROM [Sheet1$A1]

Here is the error:
Error at Data Flow Task [Excel Source [170]]: An OLE DB error has occurred. Error code: 0x80004005.
An OLE DB record is available. Source: "Microsoft JET Database Engine" Hresult: 0x80004005 Description: "The Microsoft Jet database engine could not find the object 'Sheet1$A1'. Make sure the object exists and that you spell its name and the path name correctly.".

Error at Data Flow Task [Excel Source [170]]: Unable to retrieve column information from the data source. Make sure your target table in the database is available.
Exception from HRESULT: 0xC020204A (Microsoft.SqlServer.DTSPipelineWrap)

The only way that I can get the contents of one cell is if I type in a range and indicate in the Connection Manager that the first row has column names. Given that, to get the contents of A2 I am having to type in:

SELECT * , Now() FROM [Sheet1$A1:A2]

This gets me what I want but by using this method I am never able to get information in Row 1. That could pose a problem in the future and I'm sure that there is a better way to do it.

So my question is, how can I get something from a single cell without having to name a range?

Two other questions I have are: 1. Is there a way to get information in one statement from cells that aren't adjacent to one another. For instance, if I wanted the contents of just A2 and C4?; 2. Is there a way that you could select a named range from Excel? That would be good because then I could have Excel control the range and then just call that.

I know this is a lot but I have an impending project where I'll need to do much of this and I have only ever imported the contents of an entire sheet and not specific cells from a worksheet.

Design Question Regarding Comma Delimited Data


I'm trying to figure out if it's good design practice to have several pieces of data in a one column. I explain by example. Let's say you build a movie site. Each movie can belong to several categories. A movie can be Action, Adventure, Fantasy and Drama all at once. Assume a database table with all the movies and another table with all the categories. Now how would I associate one movie with several categories? Would it be OK if I add a Category field in the movie table and then add several categories in that, delimited by commas? Sort of like below:

movie_title                  | movie_rating |        category_name--------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------Pirates of the Carribean |      PG-13        | Action,Adventure,FantasyEvil Dead                     |      Unrated      | Horrorand so on ...I can then query the database with a LIKE query if I want to select all movies of a certain category. Personally, I don't like this approach to much, but I can't think of another way to achieve this. Well, there is one other, but I like that one even less. I could create another table that links each movie to a category, but his way each movie with several categories would get a new row. Using the table above, Pirates would get three rows in that table. One with Action, one with Adventure and one with Fantasy. Get my drift? It all seems counter-intuitive. Thoughts? 
Thanks :o)

Data Row Comma Separated Cell To Many Rows


We are on SqlServer 2005.

Let me point out at the beginning that I don't have anyway to normalize this structure or get the admins to change the way the data is stored. We don't own the database where this is housed...we're just given the information via an .xls file...which we import to a SQLServer table.

I have some data that is given to me that has two columns (below is for an example):
Column A is an identifiying number, i.e. for a project
Column B is a comma separated list of account strings for the project

A sample layout of what we get via the .xls file might look like the following (Column A is to the left of the dashes, and Column B is to the right of the dashes):

AA.ProjectBuildTower ----- 2222, 3333, 4444, 5555
BB.ProjectBuildFence ----- X900, 6789, 9000, 9876

What I need to do is now haveprojects listed out in Column A with each of it's account strings in Column B like so:
AA.ProjectBuildTower ----- 2222
AA.ProjectBuildTower ----- 3333
AA.ProjectBuildTower ----- 4444
AA.ProjectBuildTower ----- 5555

BB.ProjectBuildFence ----- X900
BB.ProjectBuildFence ----- 6789
BB.ProjectBuildFence ----- 9000
BB.ProjectBuildFence ----- 9876

Any suggestions would greatly help!
