Integration Services :: Don't Write Flat File Destination If Conditional Split Is Not True

May 8, 2015

I have a Problem with my destinations. I have a split condition with two ways the flow can use.

In this case: all and Date.

All and Date can be set by using a variable. Its working good.

When a user fills the variable with a date value (cast to string) the conditional split executes the correct flow with all the needed rows... The same time the all flow will be executed with 0 rows. In the end the destionation file for the all values will be overwritten with nothing. The same on the other hand when a user fills the variable with the all value, the date file is empty. What can i do to make sure that the files are not empty?

Delete Blank Row In Flat File Destination From Conditional Split

May 21, 2008

Hello everybody
I have one question about deleting blank row on flat file destination from conditional split.
I create an SSIS package to filter data from Flat file source.
On flat file source, it is Ragged right format and header row delimeter in {CR}{LF}
the coulums are devided manulaay using markers.
I use only 2 columns divided and send the source into conditional split task and the conditions are given to filter data,
when the output from conditional split is placed on flat file destination, i notice blank rows on the output. I want to delete the blank rows so the result data can be displayed continuously in rows.
anybody has any idea for this? I know the script task will work but hope to avoid to use script task.

Thank you in advance for all the help.

Integration Services :: Get FileName Fo Each File Created Via Dynamic Flat File Destination

Jul 24, 2015

Need to know how I can get the dynamic filename created in the FlatFile destination for insert into a package audit table?

Scenario: Have created a package that successfully outputs Dynamiclly named flat files { Format: C:Test’Comms_File_’ + ‘User::FileNumber’+’_’+Date +’.txt’

E.g.: Comms_File_1_20150724.txt, Comms_File_2_20150724.txt  etc} using Foreach Loop Container  :

* Enumerator Set to: “Foreach ADO Enumerator” with the ADO object source variable selected to identify how many total loop iterations there are i.e. Let’s say 4 thus 4 files to be created

*Variable Mappings : added the User::FileNumber – indicates which file number current loop iteration is i.e. 1,2,3,4

For the DataFlow task have a OLDBSource and a FlatFile Destination where Flat File ConnectionString is set up as:

@[User::Output_Path] + "Comms_File"+ @[User:: FileNumber] +"_" + replace((DT_WSTR, 10) (DT_DBDATE) GETDATE(),"-","")+ ".txt"

All this successfully creates these 4 files:

Comms_File_1_20150724.txt, Comms_File_2_20150724.txt, Comms_File_3_20150724.txt, Comms_File_4_20150724.txt

Now the QUESTION is how do I get these filenames as I need to insert them into a DB Audittable. The audit table looks like this:

     AuditID      INT IDENTITY(1, 1) NOT NULL,
     PackageName     VARCHAR(100) NULL,
FileName           VARCHAR(100) NULL,
     LoadTime        DATETIME NULL,
     NumberofRecords INT NULL

To save the Filename & how many records in each file in our Audit Table, am using an Execute SQL Task and configuring it as this:

Execute SQL Task

Parameter mapping - Mapped the User Variable (RecordsInserted) and System Variable( PackageName) to Insert statement as shown below

SQLStatement: INSERT INTO [dbo].[MMMAudit] ( 

Again this all works terrific & populates the dbo.MMMAudit table as shown below BUT I also need to insert the respsctive file name – How do I do that?

AuditID PackageName FileName  NumberOfRecords
1           MMM       NULL                      12
2          MMM  NULL                23
3          MMM  NULL      14
4          MMM  NULL              1

Integration Services :: Split CSV File Based On First Column Value Changes And Load Into Destination Table In SSIS?

Jun 10, 2015

Import.csv file looks like,

tab1 table1 A
tab1 table1 B
tab1 table1 C
tab2 table2 D
tab2 table2 E
tab2 table2 G...

First column values are table names which are already exists in target database. Next two columns[Desc],[Code] data gets populate from CSV file to table.

In this scenario, how to load tab1 data into the same table in destination and so on.

Which way will be more standard to accomplish this task? If its a script task using C#, looking for clear script to identify a value changes in the first column.

Integration Services :: Unexpected CRLFs In Middle Of Row For Flat File Destination

Apr 24, 2015

I have a SSIS job which takes a SQL Server view as its source and outputs a flat file. The file is quite large, about 20000 rows of 30 columns and up to 400 characters per row. It is configured with CRLF at the end of each line, tabs between columns, and no header row. Most rows are output with no problems, but occasionally a line will include a line break (CRLF) in the middle. The problem appears random, but the rows with spurious CRLFs appear in clusters, with each row in the cluster having a line break after the same column. To illustrate, it looks something like this:

col1 col2 ... col 30
col1 col2 ... col 30
col1 col2 ... col 24 CRLF
col25 col 26 ... col 30
col1 col2 ... col 24 CRLF
col25 col 26 ... col 30
col1 col2 ... col 30
col1 col2 ... col 30

So although there is some pattern, where a group of lines will include a break in the same place, I've not been able to identify the pattern and relate it back to the data items.

What could possibly cause CRLFs to spontaneously appear midway through the row?

Integration Services :: Conditional Split Column Less Than Today

Oct 29, 2015

I'm trying to write a conditional split where I want to bring in only records where the date is less than today, but my problem is that I can't simply do this Column < GetDate() because if something comes in today, it takes the time into account and it will bring that record for today.  You can do this in SQL, but I'm not sure how to do that in SSIS

Integration Services :: Compare Source And Target Data Using Conditional Split

Aug 12, 2015

I'm encountering a very peculiar situation when I'm trying to compare source and target data using conditional split. Following is the Data Flow and how I'm trying to achieve this.

Source Data : Col_A (PK)      Col_2
                       1                    100
                       8                    500
Target Data : Col_A (PK)      Col_2
                       1                    100
                       3                    700
                       8                    500
Look-up Target on Col_A to check for existing records. Now we have four columns in Look-up match output: Col_A, Col_B, Lkp_Col_A (Target Col), Lkp_Col_B (Target Col).

Conditional Split: Compare Col_B with Lkp_Col_B

Update target if there is any change in the existing value of Col_B.When I'm running the package for every record in source, the conditional split fails and even when there is no change in Col_B, some of the records (Not all and quite randomly) get updated with the same value. If I run the package for few records, it works absolutely fine.

Integration Services :: Excel Destination With Run Date-1 Inside File Not The File Name

Aug 26, 2015

I have a ssis package where I need to have excel destination.  In the Excel file, I need to have few rows with some text and then populate data below the text. One the text is like this:

Data as of:  08/25/2015

if the report ran today, then Data as of will have Yesterday. So, if the user opens that excel file after a week, then user should see same  Data as of:  08/25/2015. not today()-day(1).

I was planing to handle on excel side with today()-day(1). but it only works the day it was run. Then the excel file is open after few days later, then it might as Data as of:  08/30/2015 which is not true. It should still stay Data as of:

 08/25/2015 on what ever date the excel file is open. The SSIS package  runs only once. 

How do I handle this so that whenever user open the file, they will see Data as of:  08/25/2015. This is not a column in excel. It is like a description of data in excel.

Integration Services :: Choosing A File Format For Destination

Oct 29, 2015

Is there a recommended file format (csv, xml, txt) when choosing a file destination for SSIS? Does a file format impact the performance in terms of loading? Let's say i have chosen to use a .csv as my file destination (this has 15million rows and 50 columns with 2 bigint and the rest binary(32))  and later on, i would need to reload them back to table using SSIS. Is using csv faster than e.g. xml when reloading? Does it have performance impact at all?

Unable To Edit Pre-defined Flat File Connection Manager Properties In The Flat File Destination Editor

Aug 24, 2007


I am testing SSIS and have created a Flat File Destination. I defined the Flat File Connection as New for the first time and it worked fine. Now, I would like to go back and modify the Flat File Connection in the Flat File Destination Editor, but it allows only to create a New connection rather allowing me to edit the existing one. For testing, I can go back and create a new connection, but if my connection had 50-100 columns then it would be an issue to re-create it from scratch.

Did someone else faced this issue?

Output Column Width Not Refected In The Flat File That Is Created Using A Flat File Destination?

The outputcolumnwidth seems to be the same as the inputcolumnwidth. Is there any other setting that I am possibly missing or is this a possible defect?

Any inputs will be appreciated.

Integration Services :: SSIS Split Single Input File Data Over Multiple Tables?

Sep 30, 2015

I have a delimited text file with 650+ columns. The sum of the column lengths of a single row, if fully populated, exceeds 30K bytes.  The "killer" fields lengthwise are the "Description" fields. If they were removed from the input file, the remainig columns would occupy about 5000 bytes, which is within SQL max row length. 

Can SSIS be used to created these two tables? (one without  description fields, the other with those field but arranged vertically in the table rows).

The fundamental issue is I can not import a single file row into a sql table because that row length could exceed the max byte count for a row.

2 – The field contain periods (.) (Only 1 period in each row)
3 – The field contain blanks (NULLS)

How do I create a derived column that will bypass blanks (Nulls) and remove periods (.) in each row then convert column to a date field in SSIS? Looking for steps to create a derived date column using SSIS (derived task); convert it to a date column (09-19-2015); use functions to redirect the nulls and possibly remove the period (.)?
