Data Flow Properties Missing

Mar 21, 2008


I have SQL Server 2005/BIDS installed on a 64-bit server. When I open an SSIS package the properties window for each of the Data Flow tasks is empty. The properties window is there and displays correctly for other types of task but for the Data Flows it only shows the name of the task. To further compound my misery if I try to open a package that dynamically sets a property of a Data Flow task (using an expression) the package fails to open with errors concerning reading the XML of the package.

Packages containing Data Flow tasks still run on this server (both in BIDS and using dtexec) as long as they don't contain expressions that set any Data Flow properties.

Any ideas?

How Do I Propagate Custom Properties To Downstream Transforms In A Data Flow Task

May 15, 2006

I implemented a custom source adaptor. I want to be able to associate custom properties with each of the output columns. I want them to be passed downsteam. The idea is to be able to retrieve these information in a downstream custom transformations of ours and process the various columns accordingly. How do I go about doing this?I noticed that the IDTSCustomProperty90 seems to have a local scope only.

Integration Services :: Element Not Exist In Collection Properties Error When Trying To Edit Data Flow Expressions

May 14, 2015

I'm trying to edit the Expressions of a Data Flow task. This seems to happen when I rename some of the Data Flow components but not always. The error I get is:

Element "[ADO Net Source].[SqlCommand]" does not exist in the collection "Properties"

However, if you look at the XML, this property does exist. So I'm not sure why this should occur.

I'm using SSIS 2008 R2 with Visual Studio 2008 V 9.0.30729.4462 QFE.

Expression Editor On Custom Properties On Custom Data Flow Component

Aug 14, 2007


I've created a Custom Data Flow Component and added some Custom Properties.

I want the user to set the contents using an expression. I did some research and come up with the folowing:

Code Snippet
IDTSCustomProperty90 SourceTableProperty = ComponentMetaData.CustomPropertyCollection.New();
SourceTableProperty.ExpressionType = DTSCustomPropertyExpressionType.CPET_NOTIFY;
SourceTableProperty.Name = "SourceTable";

But it doesn't work, if I enter @[System:ackageName] in the field. It comes out "@[System:ackageName]" instead of the actual package name.

I'm also unable to find how I can tell the designer to show the Expression editor. I would like to see the elipses (...) next to my field.

Any help would be greatly appreciated!

Thank you

Missing Log Output Section For SSIS Packages In The SQL Agent Job Properties

May 6, 2008

Hi All,

I have a requirement of logging the failure and the error of a job executing a SSIS package to text file.
However, when I go to job step -> Advanced, in the section "SQL Server
Integration Services Package" where that info to setup logging is, it
is blank and just says:

"There are no options for this command type"

Any ideas?

I thought that this might not be supported in Standard Edition as I am running standard edition. Then I checked on two other servers, where I have Enterprise edition with SP2. On one of the installations, I am able to give the log file, the other one still shows,

"There are no options for this command type"

What is the problem? Both of them I am using the sysadmin role account. I have proxy account created on both the SQL instances. I don't think this is the problem, but still I checked this.

Can anybody help me?

I set the owner to "sa". How do i get "SQL Server 2005(90)" in my "compatibility level" drop down list? Is this an installation option that i missed? Thanks in advance for any assistance!

How To Pass Parameter Froon Control Flow To Data Flow

Feb 14, 2006

Hi, All,

I need to pass a parameter from control flow to data flow. The data flow will use this parameter to get data from a Oracle source.

I have an Execute SQL task in control flow to assign value to the Parameter, next step is a data flow which will need take a parameter in the SQL statement to query the Oracle source,

The SQL Looks like this:

select * from ccst_acctsys_account

where to_char(LAST_MODIFIED_DATE, 'YYYYMMDD') >?

THe problem is the OLE DB source Edit doesn€™t have anything for mapping parameter.

Thanks in Advance

HELP: How Do I Pass Variables From Control Flow To Data Flow

Mar 9, 2007

I have an Execute SQL Task that returns a Full Rowset from a SQL Server table and assigns it to a variable objRecs. I connect that to a foreach container with an ADO enumerator using objRecs variable and Rows in first table mode. I defined variables and mapped them to the columns.

I tested this by placing a Script task inside the foreach container and displaying the variables in a messagebox.

Now, for each row, I want to write a record to an MS Access table and then update a column back in the original SQL Server table where I retreived data in the Execute SQL task (i have the primary key). If I drop a Data Flow Task inside my foreach container, how do I pass the variables as input to an OLE DB Destination on the Data Flow?

Also, how would I update the original source table where =

Thank you for your assistance. I have spent the day trying to figure this out (and thought it would be simple), but I am just not getting SSIS. Sorry if this has been covered.

Is There A Way To Set A Variable In A Data Flow From A SQL Statement (like In Control Flow)

Jan 12, 2006

I'm currently setting variables at the package level with an ExecuteSQL task.  This works fine.  However, I'm now starting to think about restartability midway through a package.  It would be nice to have the variable(s) needed in a data flow set within the data flow so that I only have to restart that task. 

Is there a way to do that using an SQL statement as the source of the value in a data flow? 

OR, when using checkpoints will it save variable settings so that they are available when the package is restarted?  This would make my issue a moot point.

Lookup Task Data Flow Transformation Causes Data Flow Task To Hang?

Dec 28, 2007

I'm trying to implement an incremental data pull (Oracle to SQL) based on Andy's blog:

My development machine is decent: 1.86 GHz, Intel core 2 CPU, 3 GB of RAM.
However it seems the data flow task gets hung whenever I test the package against the ~6 million row source, as can be seen from these screenshots. I have no memory limitations on the lookup transformation. After the rows have been cached nothing happens. Memory for the dtsdebug process hovers around 1.8 GB and it uses 1-6 percent of CPU resources continuously. I am not using fast load to insert new records into my sql target table. (I am right clicking Sequence Container 3 and executing this container NOT the entire package in the screenshots)

The same package works fine against a similar test table with 150k rows.

The weird thing is it only takes 24 minutes for a full refresh of the entire source table from Oracle to the SQL target table.
Any hints,advice would be appreciated.

Need To Save A Value From Data Flow A To Use In Data Flow B

Mar 20, 2007

Good morning, all,

I am working on importing an Excel workbook, saved as multiple CSV flat files, that has both group level data and related detail row on the same sheet. I have been able to import the group data into a table. As part of the Data Flow task, I want to be able to save the key value for the group, which I will use when I insert the detail rows.

My Data Flow has the following components: The flat file with the data, which goes to a derived column transformation to strip out extraneous dashes, which leads to the OLEDB Destination component.

I want to save the value as a package level variable, so that I can reference it in another dataflow.

Is this possible, and if so, at what point do I save the value?

SQL 2012 :: Connection Properties Versus SSMS Server Properties

Mar 16, 2015

I have an ODBC connection string that is working fine with the following properties:

Database="XXXXXXX",Network="YYYYYY"; strangely no server is specified in the string, but it is specified in the ODBC Connection file.

I am trying to do a new server registration in SSMS for this database.However, I don't understand where the network spec is placed.

Under Registered server name I've tried:


When I browse the server for the database instance list, I receive "network path was not found".

I even tried:"XXXXXXX",Network="YYYYYY" for the registered server name.Same error message.

What am I doing wrong ?

Data Flow Stuck In Phase The Final Commit Data Insertion Has Started

Jun 19, 2007


I have noticed that for one of my data-flows, the process is really long during the phase "the final commit data insertion has started".

To be accurate, the process is fast until it reaches this phase. It happens often when I load millions of lines.

The extraction is done from a database SQL Server 2005 to a database SQL Server 2005, on the same server (with the SQL Server native provider).

I used a SQL Server destination but I have tried with an OLE DB destination and it is the same situation.

Why the process could be so long during this phase?

There is a way to optimised my package to avoid that?

Any idea is welcome.

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

Mar 28, 2008

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.

Error Writing Data To Same Destination In Single Data Flow

May 12, 2006

I am getting the following error running a data flow that splits the input data into multiple streams and writes the results of each stream to the same destination table:

"This operation conflicts with another pending operation on this transaction. The operation failed."

The flow starts with a single source table with one row per student and multiple scores for that student. It does a few lookups and then splits the stream (using Multicast) in several layers, ultimately generating 25 destinations (one for each score to be recorded), all going to the same table (like a fact table). This all is running under a transaction at the package level, which is distributed to a separate machine.

Apparently, I cannot have all of these streams inserting data into the same table at one time. I don't understand why not. In an OLTP system, many transactions are inserting records into the same table at once. Why can't I do that within the same transaction?

I suppose I can use a UnionAll to join them back together before writing to a single destination, but that seems like an unnecessary waste and clutters the flow. Can anyone offer a different solution or a reason why this fails in the first place?

Thanks in advance.

Adding A New Data Column (not Derived) Midway Thru A Data Flow

Jan 5, 2006

I need to know what a table's max row Identity is part way thru a data flow.  I can't get it at the beginning of the data flow.  I need to either (1) add it to the data buffer part way thru or (2) set it into a package variable and then reference the var in a script component.

I've not found a way to add a database column to the data buffer without doing a lookup for each row (too slow and not appropriate here) or some goofy oledb source and then merge join into the data buffer on a contrived join.

I've read questions about referencing package vars in scripts but I can't get that to work.  DTS.Variables("varname").Value isn't recognised when I code it up.

Anyone have an idea or solution for either one of these?  If you're gonna explain the script code, please include the entire snipet including the INCLUDEs, etc.

Set The Data Source Of Data Flow From External Application (C#)

Jan 11, 2006

I am new to SSIS programming, so bear with me if my question seems naive to you gurus. I have a situation that needs to set the data source for a data flow from external .NET application ('external' means that the application will run on different process than the SSIS). I am trying to set the data source on which the data flow works from my C# application in a DataSet format. Ideal solution is not to save the DataSet to any file on harddisk (I know that will work, but has the overhead of writing, reading and managing the temp file). What I want to achive is that the business logic of picking data for SSIS Data Flow to process is controlled inside my C# application, the Data Flow just does what it does best - Transformation. Have any of you successfully done this before?. Thanks!

Data Unexpectedly Changing In Data Flow Task

Oct 3, 2007

I have a fairly simple data flow task that loads data from one table (OLE DB Source) into another table (OLE DB Destination). The data type for one of the pairs of columns is nVarChar(120) and it contains version information that looks like a decimal. When I run the export, the destination has a trailing zero added after the decimal point as if it were a numeric column which invalidates our comparisons (string 1.0 is not the same as string 1.00). There is no cast or convert done to this column, it is a straight copy. Any ideas what could be causing this or how to fix?
