Ssis Package Design To Load Only Rows Which Are Changed From Exisiting Rows.

Hi i tried designing a SSIS package which loads only those rows which were different from existing rows in the table , i need to timestamp the existing row with an inactive date when a update of that row is inserted (ex: same studentID )
and the newly inserted row with a insert time stamp
so as to indicate the new row as currently active, in short i need to maintain history and current rows in same table , i tried using slowly changing dimension but could not figure out, anyone experience or knowledge regarding the Data loads please respond.

example of Data would be like

exisiting data

12 DDS 14 M XYZ ST 2/4/06 NULL
14 hgS 17 M ABC ST 3/4/07 NULL

New row to insert would be

12 DDS 15 M DFG ST 4/5/07

the data should reflect

12 DDS 14 M XYZ ST 2/4/06 4/5/07

12 DDS 15 M DFG ST 4/5/07 NULL

14 hgS 17 M ABC ST 3/4/07 NULL

Please provide your input as much as you can even though it might not be a 100% solution.

Using SSIS 2005 To Strip Out Bad Rows In Excel And Then Insert Detailed Rows Into OLE DB Data Source

Running this code on my PC via VS 2005
.Net version 2.0.50727 on the server (shown in IIS)
Code is in ASP.NET 2.0 and is a VB.NET Console application
SSIS 2005
Problem & Info:
I am bringing in an Excel file.  I need to first strip out any non-detail rows such as the breaks you see with totals and what not.  I should in the end have only detail rows left before I start moving them into my SQL Table.  I'm not sure how to first strip this information out in SSIS specfically how down to the right component and how to actually code the component to do this based on my Excel file here:

Then, I assume I just use a Flat File Source coponent or something to actually take the columns in the Excel and split into an OLE DB Datasource to shove each column into a corresponding column in my SQL Server Table.  I have used a Flat File Source in the past to do so with a comma delimited txt file but never tried with an Excel.
Desired Help:

How to perform
1)       stripping out all undesired rows
2)       importing each column into sql table

Merge/Combine Rows

I am writing a database system which recieves information parsed from various data formats. These data formats may or may not be complete, and as such some rows in the database can have gaps.
The input formats may contain reference to the same row (in this case the same Company record) but hold different facts about that company.
Eg one message may have name, phone and fax, whereas another message may contain name, address and website.
I need to be able to insert new companies into the database OR update current records with extended data as relevant, ive been looking for UPSERT or MERGE queries in SQL Server but i cant find any useful resources explaining its use.
Alternativly i'd like to be able to condense potential duplicates into single rows, eg:
which would combine into one row where the null values get set by values derived from other similar rows:
Name PhoneEmailWebsite

Any help at all would be really appreciated

DTS (1000 + Rows) To Merge Replication - HOT***

Merge Replication -
Large inserts take hours small inserts take seconds
SQL Server 7.0 SP2 - Merge Replication Continuous Poll interval (1 7 seconds)
Platform: Quad 600mhz RAID 5 Gigabit network

When the Publisher receives 1000 + data changes (via DTS or application) the changes are not available at the Subscriber for hours.
Merge Replication is moving small table changes (inserts updates deletes) 100 500 records very quickly (1 to 5 seconds).

How can insure immediate replication of 1000+ record changes?

All Rows Are Not Replicated Correctly (merge)

Hi all! Hope you can help us with this one. We installed SP 2 of Sql server 2005 few months ago, and that caused a strange problem with merge replication.

We have about 150 subscribers in one merge publisher, and 200.000 new rows generated each day (retail system). Most tables are filtered.

Replication and filtering works fine, except 0,1% --> 0,2% of rows are not replicated correctly. These "problem-rows" are always replicated correctly to the publisher database, but publisher can't always replicate these rows further to other subscribers. Before SP2 everything worked fine.

Same problem occurs with filtered and non-filtered tables.

SQL Server shows no errors or warnings, everything SEEMS to work fine.

We have to make "dummy"-updates (like update SALES set id=id) in publisher database, to wake up the replicator. And always after these dummy updates all problem-rows will be replicated correctly from the publisher to subscribers.

Why do we have to "wake up" the replicator time to time with dummy updates? Is there a bug in SP2?

Merge Join - No Output Rows


I have a problem with a Merge Join providing no output (when it should have 1890 rows). My Data Flow Task has 4 OLE Data Sources, 3 Multicasts, and 1 OLE Data Destination. I am experiencing the problem near the end of my data flow where two Multicasts create two parallel flows of data (see Level 1 below). I have two Merge Joins which join one leg from each multicast with a leg from the other multicast (see Level 2 below). Then the two remaining legs use a Merge to get my destination output (see Level 3 below).

I am experiencing my problem with the Merge Join (input A2, B2) --> (output C2) transformation. The Merge Join providing output C1 appropriately outputs 1890 rows, but C2 outputs 0 rows. Both Merge Joins are identical. The data is identically sorted prior to entering the problematic Merge Join and a DataViewer (Grid) verified that the data is appropriately entering in. Merge Join (input A2, B2) --> (output C2) has 667 rows as input A2 and 1890 rows as input B2 (using an inner join, just like the other merge join), but C2 baffles me with 0 rows of output (when it too should have 1890). I receive no Ouput errors and the execution completes showing all green.

Level 1
Multicast (output A1, A2) [667 rows]
Multicast (ouput B1, B2) [1890 rows]

Level 2
Merge Join (input A1, B1) --> (output C1) [1890 rows]
Merge Join (input A2, B2) --> (output C2) [0 rows]

Level 3
Merge (input C1, C2) --> (output D1) [1890 rows]*

I read about mysterious behavior with Merge Joins and have attempted modifying my EngineThreads property to values between 2 and 10, with no luck. Any help/ideas would be appreciated.

Merge Subscribers Pull Twice The Amount Of Rows

We are running merge replication, SQL Server 2005 Enterprise with SQL Mobile 2005 (Windows Mobile 5) subscribers. Partitions are filtered on HOST_ID.

Ocassionally we experience a situation where a subscriber experiences an unusually long synchronization duration, and upon examining Replication Monitor, it appears that twice the number of rows, or X the number of rows (up to 7 times the number of rows) that should have been inserted are recorded as synchronized for the session: once the normal amount as inserts and once the normal amount as updates. This occurs for all tables in the subscription. This occurs on a first time synchronization to an empty subscriber database where there should be only inserts taking place.

I have examined the snapshot partition folders for these users on the file system and they appear to be identical in size and content as other subscribers. Checking the last partition snapshot job run and other characteristics for the the subscriber in question, everything appears to be the same as other subscribers functioning normally.

The HOST_ID for us is an employee ID used to filter employee specific data. I have seen this happen if the subscriber changes the value for the HOST_ID used in filtering, after the mobile database has already been populated (2 employees attempt to use the same mobile device and database). But, we have seen this happen recently where the HOST_ID was apparantly never changed midstream.

This just started happening recently. The only modification around the same time frame was the implementation of a custom business logic handler/custom conflict resolver that performs like "Latest Wins" but has logic added to update the a last-update datetime column for selected transaction tables at time of synchronization, so that an SSIS job can detect the changed rows for copying incremental database changes to another application database. This all seems to be working perfectly.

Any ideas?

Merge Replication Mysteriously Deleting Rows

I am running a simple merge replication in SQL Server 2000. I have one database that is the publisher, and a second database that is the subscriber. When I add a new row to the subscriber it will replicate to the publisher as expected. However, the new row at the subscriber will then be deleted without explanation. The row will remain at the publisher though.

Does anyone know why it is doing this?

Merge Allmost Identical Rows For Output Table

I need to transform Foxpro table to SQL Server table with merging all rows into one where all column values are the same except one . For this the only column with the different values , I want them also to be merged as coma or space delimited string. The question whether SSIS is a good candidate for this kind of data munging and also would be interested to know knowing as many as possible ways of doing that. Surely I may produce Foxpro script in 5 minutes which wil do that and be a pre-processor action before SSIS starts.

Merge Replication: Missing Rows At Subscriber With No Conflicts

Hi all,

We are using a mix of SQL 2005 and 2000 servers and our "main" database server is running SQL 2005 x64 (SP2 ver. 3042).

Our system has run perfectly for months, then subsequent to an SP2 update we are seeing several instances where the data record counts are different for several tables among all the servers.

We are using Merge Replication, with no filters and published every 2 minutes.

Any ideas?

Merge Join: Nr Of Output Rows Unchanged When Amount Of Input Changes

Dear all,

I created a package that seems to work fine with a small amount of data. When I run the package however with more data (as in production) the merge join output is limites to 9963 rows, no matter if I change the number of input rows.

Situation as follows.

The package has 2 OLE DB Sources, in which SQL-statements have been defined in order to retrieve the data.

The flow of source 1 is: retrieving source data -> trimming (non-key) columns -> sorting on the key-columns.

The flow of source 2 is: retrieving source data -> deriving 2 new columns -> aggregating the data to the level of source 1 -> sorting on the key columns.

Then both flows are merged and other steps are performed.

If I test with just a couple of rows it works fine. But when I change the where-clause in the data source retrieval, so that the number of rows is for instance 15000 or 150000 the number of rows after the merge join is 9963.

When I run the package in debug-mode the step is colored green, nevertheless an error is displayed:

Error: 0xC0047022 at Data Flow Task, DTS.Pipeline: SSIS Error Code DTS_E_PROCESSINPUTFAILED. The ProcessInput method on component "Merge Join" (4703) failed with error code 0xC0047020. The identified component returned an error from the ProcessInput method. The error is specific to the component, but the error is fatal and will cause the Data Flow task to stop running. There may be error messages posted before this with more information about the failure.

To be honest, a few more errormessages appear, but they don't seem related to this issue. The package stops running after some 6000 rows have been written to the destination.

Any help will be greatly appreciated.

Kind regards,

Merge Replication Downloading Rows Immediately After Uploading SQL 2005


I have noticed that four out of the 145 tables being replicated in my topology perform a mysterious update.

If I insert data at the subscriber then synchronise the upload is completed followed by immediate downloading of the same identical set of rows as updates.

Has anyone seen anything like this. I cannot see any difference in the filter joins or article settings compared to any other table in the system but these four consistently do this.

So the the left input for the merge join is OLEDB source , which contains direct data from source table

I am usong Inner join on one column

The problem is i am not getting the expected rows as out put of merge .

I tried to join the two tables in sqlserver query window and i am getting expected result

What could be the problem

The first table is


second table is Out put of the following query

Select Distinct B.ReservationID as R

from Property.Main A ,Reservations.Reservations B ,Reservations.ReservationRooms C


A.propertyID = B.PropertyId And

C.ReservationID = B.ReservationID And

getdate() >=C.Until +A.ReservationOffLineDays

i am not getting the expected result here in SSIS package merge join

But if i try to execute the following in query editer in management studio i am getting the expected result !!

declare @temp as table

SSIS And Merge Replication Problem


I'm doing merge replication between SQL Server 2005 and SQL Compact on mobile devices. I also have an SSIS package set up which imports data from the client's accounting system into the SQL Server database. I'm having a problem where imported records are not being replicated to the subscribers on synchronization. The only way to get the newly added records to the subscriber is by generating a new snapshot and reinitializing the subscriptions. Does anyone have any ideas why this data is not replicating? Records added directly to the server database e.g. via Management Studio replicate ok, and records synchronized from subcribers are correctly replicating to all other subscribers.

Any ideas on how I can constrain a lookup or merge join based on the dimension row's effective and expired dates so three criteria are needed as follows:

 The 2 source tables have 1000 rows.They act as the 2 inputs to a merge join transformation where i perform the join between the 2 tables based on a couple of fields. But for some reason the output of  the merge join gives me about 1018 rows .Shouldnt the destination also have only 1000 rows?
 How do i solve tis problem?

I need to run an Insert query which pulls data from a table located on server A database AA Table AAA conditional on (or JOINED with) Table BBB in database BB sever B. In SQL 2000 it could be done as:

From Server A:
sp_addlinkedserver B
INSERT dbo.ResultsTable
SELECT SourceTable.* FROM B.BB.dbo.BBB SourceTable
INNER JOIN A.AA.dbo.AAA ConditionTable ON SourceTable.RecID = ConditionTable.RecID
sp_dropserver B

In SSIS one of the possible solutions is to use a package which does the following:

The problem with this approach is that it's extremely slow for large datafiles (50M records each)


1) In the procedure above could the SORT step be avoided?
2) Is there another approach to run cross-servers JOIN in SSIS?

SSIS Drops Rows

I've written an SSIS package which has two DataFlow tasks running simultaneously, importing the data from two separate ASCII files into two staging/prep tables: one Tasks imports records into an ORDER table while the other Task imports the ITEM-level records into an ITEM table.

Starting several days ago, the ITEM DF Task began importing a partial set of records even though the ASCII file clearly showed more records were available.

For example, in today's processing, here is the message from SSIS: << [ITEM Ascii File [1695]] Information: The total number of data rows processed for file "\webserv01globalscapeusr vr logstandarditem.txt" is 217361. >> yet i only found 10,401 rows -- and they all appeared to be the bottom 10,401 rows of the incoming ASCII file.

I cannot see any other untoward messages about SSIS encountering a problem.

There are no Error Output restrictions on the ASCII file.

The ASCII row preceding the 10,401 rows i DID get looks OK.

Can anyone suggest a possible place to look which might explain this "jumping" over the nearly 207,000 rows?

Thanks very much.

How Can I Append Only New Rows In A Table Using SSIS?


Im creatting an SSIS project that uses an Data Flow OLE DB Source to read data from an SQL Table and import it into a Destination table using Data Flow OLE DB Destination. but now everytime I run the project it appends all the rows not the new data rows only. How can I make the application so that it appends only the new data from a source table to a destination table. Is there maybe another Data Flow Control that can copy source table to destination and the next time it runs it only copy new rows. or any other way to do this using SSIS.

Your assistance will be highly appreciated.
