Integration Services :: DTSX Won't Save Variable Updates
Nov 10, 2015
I have a set of .dtsx files that connect to an Oracle database. The Oracle username and pw values are saved in variables set up in the .dtsx files. These two variables do not have expressions, rather, these two variables feed other variables and their expressions.Theses files are now moving from one environment to another and the Oracle username and pw must be updated to connect to the new Oracle environment.
Upon updating the variables, the packages expressions update as expected, however, when saving the file to disk, the updated variables aren't saved and the values revert back to the original values.
How are variables updated in .dtsx packages that will allow changes to be saved?
I need to modify a .dtsx that is inside ‘Integration Services Catalogs’; I tried right-clicking + exporting… But I only see ‘Configure’, ‘execute’ or validate options… I thought I could export it, directly from there, modify it and import it againNow I accessed the Integration Services from the same server name, and it’s not there… How can I find out, where is that package from? Or is there a way that I can export it directly from ssms?
We are struggling to add an extra column to a Dtsx package. The package essentially compiles data into a table and then exports the data to a series of Spreadsheets. So far I have ended up doing the following: -
-Creating a new Folder for the Spreadsheet Templates, copying the existing spreadsheets into the new Folder and then added the new Column. -Creating new Connection Managers in the Package to connect to these new templates. -Adding the column to the various data flow tasks so that the new column is converted and then exported (data type is varchar(30), conversion type is Unicode text stream [DTNTEXT]).
Everything validates when we compile the dtx package. However when we run the package we are getting the following error: -
Started: 5:39:49 PM Error: 2015-05-12 17:45:39.05 Code: 0xC0202009 Source: Data Flow Task Voluntary Excel  Description: SSIS Error Code DTS_E_OLEDBERROR. An OLE DB error has occurred. Error code: 0x80040E21. End Error
In SSIS 2008R2, I have a dataflow with an xlsx source and the destination is a SQL Server 2008R2 table. The files are delivered from a location where staff members 'work with' the source files. The files are produced monthly.
The dataflow that contains the file breaks upon the attempt to process subsequent monthly xlsx files with a message similar to the following:
--************* [TNUQQ ] Warning: The external columns for component "TNUQQ" (16) are out of synchronization with the data source columns. The column "F12" needs to be added to the external columns. The external column "county_taxable_sale_amount" needs to be updated. The external column "city_taxable_sale_amount" needs to be updated. The external column "district_taxable_sale_amount" needs to be updated. The external column "QTY" (62) needs to be removed from the external columns. --*************
I've noticed that some columns in the file ship with no data. A column with no data can be typed as datetime one month, and then float another month. I've tried to load xlsx to raw to table, but that does not work around this issue.
I've tried to set 'ValidateExternalMetadata' to 'False' on the Excel source, but that does not work either. Aside from going back to the folks who ship the file to us, is there anything that can be done in SSIS to work around this issue, and still wind up with valid data?
I found a possible bug. If I open/create a new Integration Services Project and then try to save a copy of the package to SQL Server I found that for the option to "save Copy of Package As..." is only available if I am in the package itself. If I click (highlight) on the package in the Solution explorer and then click on the File tab, the "save Copy of Package As..." option is not available.
I have to access a web service where I pass in a product number and it produces an XML result with an /image section where it has a long string (base64?) I am trying to call the web service and save the image to the OS.
I am trying to get the result into a variable and save it to disk with the itemno.jpg as the name
This is a sample file I get back..
<NewDataSet> <Table> <ITEMNO>2065</ITEMNO> <Image>/9j/4QAYRXhpZgAASUkqAAgAAAAAAAAAAAAAAP/sABFEdWNr ... removed since too long for post ...</Image> <ImageDate>2015-04-15T00:00:00+00:00</ImageDate> </Table> </NewDataSet>
I have an SSIS package that creates a csv file based on a execute sql task.
The sql is incredibly simple select singlecolumn from table.
In the properties of the execute sql task I specify the result set as "full result set" when I run it I get the error that: Error:
The type of the value being assigned to variable "User::CSVoutput" differs from the current variable type.
Variables may not change type during execution. Variable types are strict, except for variables of type Object.
If I change the resultset to single row then I only get the first row from the DB (same if I choose none), If I choose XML then I get the error that the result is not xml. What resultset type do I need to choose in order to get all the rows into the CSV? The variable I am populating is of type string and is User::CSVoutput
We are using SSIS 2008 . A variable abc has been defined with sql script Select firstName,LastName from Employee.I need to edit the variable and add a where condition like SELECT firstName,lastName FROM employee where Name like '%Fr%' I tried to replace it with new script and saved also but when i ran the package it was still using the old sql script .
im creating an sql2005 integration services project ( DTS). i am creating a user variable. i want to be able to use that variable inside a script task. how do i reference the variable so that it can be seen within the script task??
It's SQL 2008 R2. I need to bring data from Oracle using .Net Providers/ODBC Data Provider to MS SQL table converting Oracle UTC dates to PST. The source connection type cannot be changed as it's given. For the Destination I'm using the OLE DB.
As the truncate all and load could take time I'm trying to use a temp table or a variable to use it further with t-sql merge or not exists to bring/add the only new records to the destination table.
I'm trying different scenarios that is all failed.
1. In DTF after OLE DB Source I'm using the Derived Colum to convert dates. It's working well.
2. Then use Recordset Destination with an object variable User::obj_TableACD. It's also working well.
3. Then I created a string variable with a simple query that I could modify later "select * from " + (DT_WSTR,10)@[User::obj_TableACD] trying to get data from the recordset object variable but it's not working.
1. Created a store procedure to create a temp table.
2. Created a string variable to execute SP str_CreateTempTable: "EXEC dbo.TempTable". It's working well with the SQL Task with SQLSourceType as Variable.
3. Then how to populate the temp table from the Oracle source to bring data into the Destination?
I have created a SSIS package that runs several reports exporting the file output to a shared directory. Then I email these files as attachments to an email group. I got everything working so far. But when I checked the email there are only some of the attachments (3 out of 6 files).I have created a variable that uses an expression to concatenate several filenames and their paths separated with a "|". When I evaluate the expression it list all six files. When I use the variable in an expression when assigning the "FileAttachments" property in the Expressions tab in the Send Mail Task editor and I evaluate the expression, it only shows 3 out of the 6 files.
Each file name and path is less than 100 characters. Why is this task only grabbing 3 out of the 6 files. If I check the shared directory all 6 files are there. Also, there are two paths in the package that input into the Send Mail Task each creating a different set of report files. Only one of the paths files are getting attached. The connectors to the Send Mail Task are set as Evaluation operation: "Constraint" and the Value: "Completion". Under Multiple constraints I have selected "Logical AND, All constraints must evaluate to True".
I have created one variable name migration_start datetime which give me default format of 6/11/2015 1:26 AM...But I expecting to get in 2015-06-11 01:26:22.813 format.I have used below expression betting getting issue with that
So I have a Web Service that works just fine when I enter the parameter values myself. I get results and can parse it out, storing the results into a table. I even have it working in a "For Each Loop" for one of my variables. The issue I have is that the Web Service accepts 3 variables, the first being an Array. How can I populate the array variable for web service?
I am using a sql task to get all tablenames and then passing the output to another sql task inside a for each container.
So that the 2nd sql task will be executed for each table. My query looks like SELECT DISTINCT b.EmailAddress FROM ? ......
Since I am passing the tablename as a variable (output from the 1st sql task), I get the following error:
[Task Execute SQL] Error:
Failed to execute the query 'SELECT DISTINCT b.EmailAddress FROM? AS a INNER... ':' Failed to extract
the result in a variable of type (DBTYPE_I4)'. Possible causes include the following: Problems with the query, not properly fixed ResultSet property, not properly set parameters or not properly established connection.
I have one main package from which i am executing 5 other packages.I want to use one single DB connection in all the packages which i am declaring in Main package and it should be available in all the child packages. How can i Do this?
Few Variables are common is all the packages so i want to keep it Globally so how can i access those variables ?
I have to import a number of excel spreadsheets. I'm using the classic Foreach Loop inside another Foreach loop approach. The outside loop (Foreach File Enumerator) cycles through the Excel files, while the inside loop (Foreach ADO.NET Schema Rowset Enumerator - ExcelSchema - Tables) to cycle through the individual Excel sheets in each file.
Nothing special there; however, for some reason these excel files have some "phantom" tabs that should not be imported. I call them phanton because they show up as an importable tab in a SSSIS import wizard but actually are not listed in the excel file structure (no, they are not hidden tabs, I checked).
My idea is to use a constraint to NOT import those phanton tabs. The name convention should allow me to do that because the normal tabs have the name 'AAAAAAyyyymmdd$' and the phantom tabs show up as 'AAAAAAyyyymmdd$'_xlnm#_FilterDatabase (the line below was captured from the Local Variable window and show one of the phantom tabs name).
I tried using Len (@[User::WorksheetName]) == 17, which corresponds to the length of the normal tabs name ('AAAAAAyyyymmdd$'). However, it does not work. For some reason the portion of the phantom tab name after the ending single quote (_xlnm#_FilterDatabase) appears to be ignored.
I tested with a number of different expressions, including reversing the variable, to no avail. It seems that internally just the standard name between quotes is what the constraint sees.
I need to create a variable expression that will be passing yesterday's date to a sql command but when I create the variable there is only the datetime datatype, how can I trim the time portion from this expression to get the date portion :
We have one package in production. variable var_date has an expression already defined to it. How can we overwrite this variable value from config file or from cmd file. We don't want to make changes to the package and redeploy it.
I have a Master Package that executes a number a child packages.
In my SSIS Package Configuration:
1. I have an SSIS Configuation table that holds the connection string.
2. An XML Configuration File with a setting of configuration location stored in an enviornmental variable.
3. And finally, an Eveniornmental variable with the setting of ProjectFolderAbsolutePath value, where it is the full path of the project folder.
The project functions normally but everytime I open it I get the following error.
" Warning loading MasterPackage.dtsx: The configuration environment variable was not found. The environment variable was: "EnviorVariable". This occurs when a package specifies an environment variable for a configuration setting but it cannot be found. Check the configurations collection in the package and verify that the specified environment variable is available and valid."
I receive a data feed from a third party in a pipe delimited file. From time to time, they add a column at the end. I would like my ssis package to continue to process the data even if they add a column with out it breaking. How best do I handle this situation?
How to use variables in Connection Manager's properties? I see some replies through Configuration Package. But what if, it is still in development stage? I mean, can I use the Variable tab and create some variables like
Then put them in Password and UserName property of Connection Manager? If this is possible, how and how can I set the values of those variables I mentioned when I am going to deploy the package in the Production?
