I have a series of data flow tasks that I want to output to a temp table. I've set the data source for RetainSameConnection and the Data Flows are DelayValidation. The OLE DB data source inside the Data Flow works fine, but the data destinations don't offer a # or ## as a target. I've tried every destination that sounds logical, without success.
My DTS package does nothing special it just pulls in an data from another server (specifying the SQL in a Global V).
This data is then altered using various Stored Procedures.
What would be nice is if the data's destination table could be a #temp table (within tempdb) and then my sps could access it and perform their various operations.
At the moment i cannot get this to work and instead all i can think of is to Create a table within the main working db and insert the data into that and then insert the data into a #temp table and DROP the table i created in the working database.
There must be a better way to achieve this. Is there any way to copy the data straight to the #temp table i have created?
I need to see inside a SSIS 2012 project a new SSIS installed component, but in the SSDT 2010 I cannot see the SSIS Data Flow Items tab for adding data source/data destination respect to the choose toolbox items pane.
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?
Is there a default destination component used when a new data flow is created? The reason I ask is simply curiosity. I have an xml file with 2 pieces of data: item A and item B. A should simply get copied out of the file. B should undergo a quick transform. I set up an XML source such that two columns are mapped correctly to the XML source data of A and B. I set up my data transform task as well. So, if I leave those two components on the .dtsx page with no other components, then will there be a default data flow destination already created? ...OR, do you always have to have a destination component?
I have a data flow that reads multiple rows from a table and then inserts to another table for each row. I use an ole destination for my inserts. However, after that insert I need to do other table inserts and I can't figure out how to continue the data flow with the fields in the pipeline. Out of the destination is only the Error flow - Is there a way to do this ?
However, the first three columns are not being populated in the destination table. The other columns come over fine.
The SQL stmt. returns data as expected when run against the source database.
I deleted the source and destination and recreated the flow to prevent metadata mapping issues. In the source editor preview I see all of the columns and data. In the destination editor preview, the first three columns of data are null ???.
It appears that the columns are not mapping properly even though they are in the source and destination of the mapping editor.
I have made sure that the destination mapping contains all the columns in the UI.
The source and destination have the columns represented in the advanced editor metedata. I also checked the XML to verify that the columns are in the destination.
There is a row count between the source and destination. which should have no effect.
This is a part of a larger DW load where I have 10 other tables populated within the dataflow. I also do not get any validation, or error messages. So, I have eliminated truncation errors or the like.
I am really puzzled. Has anyone run accross anything like this?
Hi Folx, I am new to SQL Server and I am struggling.
Versions: Microsoft SQL Server Integration Services Designer Version 9.00.1399.00
Microsoft SQL Server Management Studio 9.00.1399.00
I would like to 01. create a temp table 02. load the temp table from a flat file 03. insert into a destination table the rows from the temp table where NOT EXIST the primary key of the destination table.
Flat File Source will not accept that a resource will be available that does not yet exist (the temp table)
I set the Flat File Source to ÄúIgnore FailureÄ? and ran the package. It ran with warnings but did not insert the new rows.
The ÄúIgnore DuplicatesÄ? radio button is Äúgrayed outÄ? because the index is clustered
Now I could work around this thing by keeping a table just for purposes of this process flow. I am opposed to that philosophically and would prefer to do this in the way that I consider appropriateÄ¶is there a solution?
Then I was trying to use that temp table for destination but I can do see that in destination. I have to automate the package and do that everyday. I read some blogs but did not understand how they did it.¬†I did set retainsameconnection to true. I did find this thread but i did not understand how it was done.¬†URL....
I have two OBL DB sources, Then I have Union ALL and then OLE Destination in data flow.I have the temp table code in Execute sql task.
I have 5 or more tables to join to get a particular output which has to be sent to a destination table. In the 5 tables some are inner joins and some are left outer join. I am opting for stored procedure at this point. But I would like to know how can this be done in data flow transformations having multiple souce and merge joins or any other alternates. I tried using merge join, but this does not accept more than two tables.
I saw this simple post which kick started me to use ssis transformations to stored procedures. But I encounter issue. http://www.mssqltips.com/tip.asp?tip=1322 error "The destination component does not have any available inputs for use in creating a path".
Inside a data flow task, i have a oledb source and destination. In my situation, I need to pull data from a table in the source, but also hard code some columns myself, which means my source is a blend of data from table, hard coded data, which will then have to be mapped to columns in oledb destination. Does anyone which option to choose in the oledb source dropdown for the data access mode. Keep in mind, i do need to run a a select query, as well as get data from a table. Is it possible to use multiple oledb sources and connect to one destination, because that is really what intend to do here. I am not sure how it will work, or even if its possible. Basically my source access mode needs to be a blend of sql command and table columns, how would that be implemented? Any help or advice is appreciated.
I have an update query in an OLE DB Destination (access mode: SQL Command) that updates a table with an INNER JOIN from another table in another database. I'm getting the error, "No disconnected recordset available for the specified SQL statement". Does this have to do with the SQL query trying to access the other database? How can I get around this error?
I want to insert data calling a stored procedure and call this from a Data Flow destination object. Is it possible?
I understand that Ole Db Command transformation object can call stored procedure, but that will not rollback in the event of error in the middle.
I understand that Ole Db Destination object will rollback in middle of import, but I don't see how to do the insert by calling stored procedure. "Sql Command" option in Ole Db Destination object does not seem to present solution to the problem.
Am I missing something here or is Ssis / Microsoft demanding that Insert stored procedure not be used when using Data Flow destination object to insert data into target table?
I have a package that does simple exporting from an excel sheet to a table. I used a Dataflow task with Excel Source and OLEDB Destination Components. And i created Package configurations for Source and Destination Components. After than when i execute the package i get the following error.

How do I retrieve the connections (connection managers) collections from Custom Data Flow destination? ComponentMetadata.RuntimeConnectionCollection is empty. I would like to be able to access all the connections defined in the package from the custom data flow task.
I came across code in which it was possible to access the Connections collection using the IDtsConnectionService for custom task (destination). The custom task has access to serviceProvider, whcih can be used to get access to the IDtsConnectionService interface but not the custom data flow task.
I have a Data Flow task which uses an XML File Source with six parellell Outputs, each going firstly to a Data Conversion Task, then the results of each end in a SQL Server Destination Object. (All using the SQL Native Client)
To eplain this further, the Xml file contains 6 different types of elements, the Dataflow splits out each type of element and processes them into different tables. The Data Transformation object exists only because the XML fields are Uni-code and the table fields are VarChar not nVarChar.
Initially using this setup I found that the Connection would timeout using the SQL Native Client so I changed the Timout on the Destination Objects to 0. This fixed the problem to some degree, however at present I can run the Pakage using the Visual Studio enviroment and everything works fine, no problem. When I run the Dtsx file using the SQL Server Agent, I end up getting the error below...

I understand that this error is somewhat of a 'catch all' and that the way the Native SQL Server Connection object works makes Error Capturing difficult. I have tried a few things which I will list as I'm sure they will be suggested...
I have played around with the 'MaxInsertCommitSize' property of the SQL Server Destination Objects to no avail (IE, changing to 50000, 10000, 1000 all of which resulted in the same problem)
I am running the ssis pakage from the server which is the destination
As mentioned above the Timeout on the SQL Server Destination Objects is set to 0
What I have already mentioned and still don'tt quite understand is that I can run the job successfully from the Visual Studio enviroment but as a job run off the SQL Server it fails...
We have a single¬†generic SSIS package that is used to import several hundred¬†iSeries tables into SQL. I am not looking to rewrite the process.¬†But I am looking for ways to improve performance.
I have tried retain same connection, maximum insert commit size, lock table (tablock), removed some large columns, played with the log file location and size, and now I am working¬†to tweak¬†the defaultbuffermaxrows.
To describe the data flow task -¬†there are six¬†data flows tasks (dft) ¬†working at the same time. Each dtf has their own list of iSeries tables and columns and the corresponding generic¬†SQL table names. Each dtf determines their list of tables based on the number of columns to import. So there is dft30 (iSeries table has¬†1-30 columns to import), dtf60 (iSeries table has¬†31-60 columns to import),¬†etc. The destination SQL tables are generically called Staging30, Staging60, etc. Each column in the generic¬†Staging tables are¬†varchar(100). The dtfs are comprised of an OLE DB Source¬†and an OLE DB Destination.
The OLE DB Source¬†uses a SQL Command from Variable to build a SELECT statement. The OLE DB Source uses a connection manager that uses an¬†IBM iAccess IBMDA400 provider.¬† The SQL Command ends up looking like this for the dtf30. This specific example is¬†importing from the¬†iSeries table TDACLR and it only has two columns so it will be copied to the¬†Staging30 table.
select TCREAS AS C1,TCDESC AS C2,0 AS C3,0 AS C4,0 AS C5,0 AS C6,0 AS C7,0 AS C8,0 AS C9,0 AS C10,0 AS C11,0 AS C12,0 AS C13,0 AS C14,0 AS C15,0 AS C16,0 AS C17,0 AS C18,0 AS C19,0 AS C20,0 AS C21,0 AS C22,0 AS C23,0 AS C24,0 AS C25,0 AS C26,0 AS C27,0 AS C28,0 AS C29,0 AS C30,''TDACLR'' AS T0 from Store01.TDACLR
The OLD DB Source variable value looks like the following, but I am not showing the full 30 columns
select cast(0 AS varchar(100)) AS C1,cast(0 AS varchar(100)) AS C2,cast(0 AS varchar(100)) AS C3,cast(0 AS varchar(100)) AS C4,cast(0 AS varchar(100)) AS C5, ... cast(0 AS varchar(100)) AS C30.
The OLE DB Destination uses OpenRowSet Using FastLoad From Variable. The insert into Staging30¬†ends up looking like this.
Of course we then copy¬†and transform the Staging30 data to the¬†SQL table that equals¬†T0.
But back to defaultbuffermaxrows. Previously the dtfs had default values of 10000 for DefaultBufferMaxRows and 10485760 for DefaultBufferSize.¬†I added a¬†SQL task to SUM the iSeries column sizes, TCREAS and TCDESC in this example, and¬†set the DefaultBufferMaxRows by dividing the SUM of the columns max_length into 10485760. But I did not see a performance improvement. Do you think that redefining the columns as varchar(100) for the insert is significant? Should I possibly SUM the actual number of columns (2) as 2x100 or SUM the 30x100?
I have a simple Control Flow setup that checks to see if a particular table exists. If the table does not exists, the table is created in an alternate path, if it does exist, the table is truncated before moving to a file import Data Flow that uses an OLE DB Destination to output the imported data.
My problem is, that I get OLE DB package errors if the table the OLE DB Destination Container references does not exist when I load the package.
How can I over come this issue? I need to be able to dynamically create the table in an earlier step, then use that table to import data into in a later step in the workflow.
Is there a switch I can use to turn off checking in the OLE DB Destination Container so that it will allow me to hook up the table creation step?
Seems like this would be a common task...
1. Execute SQL Task to see if the required table exists 2. Use expresions to test a variable to check the results of step 1 3. If table exists, truncate the table and reload it from file in Data Flow using OLE DB Destination 4. If table does not exist, 1st create it, then follow the normal Data Flow
OLE DB source which calls a stored proc that returns a result set
Excel destination I am in design mode in Business Intelligence studio. My excel destination (with an Excel Connection) shows no sheet name though I have an execute SQL task before the data flow to create the excel table called SHEET1. Needless to say, there are no output columns visible to do any mappings. I did go to the ExcelConnection to set the OpenRowset Property to SHEET1 but it seems to have no effect.
I can do the export in SQL Server Management studio and that works fine, but it is basic and does not meet my requirements. I have to customize the package to allow dynamic Excel filenames based on account names and have to split my result set into multiple excel sheets because excel 2003 has a max of 65536 rows per sheet. Also when I use the export wizard, I have the source as a table and eventually the source has to be a stored proc with input parms.
What am I missing or doing wrong? Thanks in advance
If on the source I have a new column, the script generated by¬†SqlPackage.exe recreates the table on the background with moving the data into a temp storage. If the table is big, such approach can cause issues.
Example of the script is below: in the source project I added columns¬†[MyColumn_LINE_1] ¬†and¬†[MyColumn_LINE_5].
Is there any way I can make it generating an alter statement instead?
BEGIN TRANSACTION; SET TRANSACTION ISOLATION LEVEL SERIALIZABLE; SET XACT_ABORT ON; CREATE TABLE [dbo].[tmp_ms_xx_MyTable] ( [MyColumn_TYPE_CODE] CHAR (3) NOT NULL,
The same script is generated regardless the table having data or not, having a clustered or nonclustered PK.
I am stuck on finding a solution to transpose source data from a system via a metadata look-up table into a destination table. I need a method to transpose/pivot the source data into columns (which are by various data-types). The datatypes for each column are listed in a metadata table.
Source Data Table:
Table Name: Source
SrcID AGE City Date 01 32 London 01-01-2013 02 35 Lagos 02-01-2013 03 36 NY 03-01-2013
MetaID Column_Name Column_type 11 AGE col_integer 22 City col_character 33 Date col_date
The source data to be loaded into the destination table(as shown below):
Hi, all experts here, Do we always have to use SCD component for the loading of data into data warehouse to handle changes of rows? I am looking forward to hearing from you and thank you very much in advance for your help. With best regards,
how I can load the CSV file data into the sql server table. I know there are ways like bulk insert and other to load the csv file data into the table. But in my case the table doesn't exist and has to be created at the run time.¬†With simple insert in temp table we do like¬†select * into #temp from tablename and that creates the temp table. So. I need something like that which create the temp table and load the data into it. because the CSV file would have different number of columns and names so I can not create the table structure in advance. I have to create the table at run time.¬†
I want to insert the data from temp table to other table. Only condition is, it needs to sorted based on tool number and tool date. For example if we have ten records for tool number 1000, it should be order by tool number and then based on tool_dt. Both tables doesn't have any primary keys. Please find below my code. I removed all the unnecessary columns for simple understanding.¬†INSERT INTO tool_summary ¬†(tool_nbr, tool_dt) select tool_nbr, tool_dt from #tool order by tool_nbr, tool_dt...But this query is not working as expected. Data is getting shuffled.
WE have a job that loads data from an Oralce DB into our SQL Server 2000 DB twice a day. The schedule has just changed so that now there is a possibility of having my west coast users impacted when it runs at 5 PM PST and my east coast users impacted when it runs at 7 AM EST. As a workaround, I have developed a DTS package that loads the data into temp tables instead of the real tables. IE. Oracle -> XTable_temp instead of Oracle -> XTable. The load sometimes takes about an hour to an hour and a half to load, so this solution works great, but I want to then lock the table, delete it and rename the temp table to table X. The pseudo code would be:
Lock Table XTable
Alter Table XTable_temp rename to XTable
Release Lock XTable
I see two issues with this solution. 1) I think if I can lock XTable that the lock would be released when the table is dropped and the XTable_temp was being renamed. 2) I can't find a command to rename a table.
