SQL 2012 :: SSIS - Transfer All Data From Source To Destination
Sep 1, 2014
I am a complete newbie to SSIS. I can create a simple package to transfer data between SQL instances and thats about it.
I have tableA (source data) and tableB (Destination data). TableA has 4 column and tableB has 5. I want to transfer all of the columns from tableA into TableB, but the 5th column in tableB needs to be populated with the ServerInstance name of the server TableA sits on. Do I need to have multiple data sources to achieve this? I have tried but no matter how I set it up, the Column in the destination is set to ignore.
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 have a SSIS package that simply moves data from a SQL database A to another SQL database B. I have update (increased) the size of a nvarchar column, on both A and B.I am wondering if there is a way to "refresh" somehow the SSIS package so I don't have to rebuild and redeploy it.The error I get now is a truncation error: "Text was truncated or one or more characters had no match in the target code page".
I am replacing a server so I need to migrate everything. The old server is running SQL2000 and the new server is running SQL2005. I am trying to write an SSIS solution to migrate everything for me and I can't even get started because I get the error "The source server can not be the same as the destination server". At the same time I am changing the name of the Domain so the two machines arenot even members of the same Domain. I am doing this over the Internet so the machines are not even on the same subnet. The only thing I can think of is that the machine names are the same so even though the domains are different therefore the full names are different, the NetBIOS names are the same. Could that be the problem?
I am new to SSIS programming and trying to export data from a flatfile source to SQL server destination table dynamically. I need to get the table schema info (column length, data type etc.) from SQL server table and then map the source columns from flatfile to destination table columns.
I am referring to one of the programming samples from Microsoft and another excellent article by Moim Hossain. Can someone help me understand how to map the Source columns to destination table columns depending on table schema? Please help.
I have read only permission in the source (OLTP) database. The source database is running in SQL Server 2000 and the size is more than 200 GB. I need to pull data from source and load target which is running in SQL server 2005.
Following are the objectives I want to achieve.
Data should be loaded on incremental basis.
Whatever changes take place (Update/Delete) in source, that should be replicated to already uploaded data.
Here I want to mention that, the source database does not have any identification key or timestamp column like Updated_Date by which I can filter the data which are recently inserted or updated into the source and upload the same. The source does not maintain any history data also. So I do not have any track of deleted record also.
I donÄôt have any scope to change the schema in the source. In this scenario can anybody suggest me the best approach to achieve the above mentioned objectives?
Can I retrieve only the recent updated or inserted date form transaction log back up. Can log shipping solve the give the solution?
One more question. Say I have a table and I am exporting/importing all the data from/to my target table using SSIS or DTS. In this scenario does using query or using directly the table affects the performance?
I need to write TSQL script that will insert, update, delete rows in a production db from new, updated and deleted data from staging db. They are both in different servers and I can only use TSQL. Basically, the production DB needs to be synchornized with the staging DB.
I was thinking using dynamic sql, cursors, and linked servers. Any ideas?
i want to compare the source and destination data my source is Oledb source and destination is sql server destination I want to Compare the Data in destination with source and also want to add validation like iF Any row is there is destination but not in source delete that row if any row in source but not in destination Insert that row nd compare source with destination respect to Primary key if There is change in any column of that row Update that if not change than move to next record. Please tell me what is the sutable object and what to do Please Help me Out Thanks Sandeep
I am new to SSIS can u help me out in this i have a source(Flat File) and target SQL Server 2005. Source has got 2 columns- Col1 and Col2 even target has got 2 col's Col1 being the PK. I have created a package that checks if target and if the record exist it updates and if it does not it inserts. My package looks like
Source - lookup on target- Conditional split- Derived Column and then 2 OLE DB Destinations 1 for inserts and 1 for updates.
I have created a relationship in lookup with col1 from source and col1 from target and col2 as lookup col and connected red output to 1 OLE DB for inserts and redirect rows to it. Green out put i have taken to conditional split and gave condition like Col2 from source is not equal to lookup col2. I run the package with this it is inserting new records but not updating it.
I tried to add derived column after conditional split but lacks in writing expression that says update col2 records if they changed at source. Can u help me out in this scenario. I would appreciate if you could get back to me ASAP.
I have created a SSIS package that transfer data from a Foxpro database to an instance of SQL Server 2005 Express. I used the wizard to create the package but I load and execute the package within a custom application that I have written in C#.
The way the custom application is intended to work is that the user can have the database in any location on the computer and all he has to do is specify the location then the application programatically changes the location of the source on the package that it has loaded and then execute it. When I initially run the package the first time (using the original path), it works fine and transfers the data. However, every subsequent time I run the application and specify a different path, the database on the SQL Server side gets created as expected but the data is not transfered!
Where am I going wrong? Do I need to save the package after I modify the source then reload and run it again or do i need to change something else in the Data Flow to make this work?
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'm trying to build a DTSX package that FTP's an XML file to the local file system and then imports it into an existing table.
My "Data Flow" for the package starts with an XML Source component and then goes to Data Conversion component and then to an OLE DB Destination component.
It all executes with out error and seems to work fine, but when I look at the data in the table after I've run the package it seems to have inserted the appropriate number of rows from the XML file but all of the column values are NULL.
All of the data in the XML file is surrounded by <![CDATA[ ]]> and I discovered that if I remove the CDATA wrapper by hand then it inserts the data properly. The only problem is that I'm not in a position to have the data provider remove the CDATA tags and some of the data in the XML file needs the CDATA wrapper or else it will not validate.
Anyone know of anything I can do to get the CDATA to import properly?
I have a new problem when I import data from an xml source file in two destination tables. The two tables are linked by a foreign key... for example :
table MOTHER (MOTHER_ID, MOTHER_NAME)
table CHILD (CHILD_ID, MOTHER_ID, MOTHER_NAME)
After a lot of transformations data are inserted into MOTHER table and I want to insert other fields of the data flow in CHILD table. To do this, I need the MOTHER_ID field that is auto incremented in MOTHER table.
My problem is to chain the insertion in CHILD table after the insertion in MOTHER table to be sure that the relative row in MOTHER table is really inserted. I haven't find any solution to chain another transformation task after my flow destination "Insert into MOTHER table".
The only solution I have found is to create a new flow control to insert data in CHILD table, using a lookup transformation task to bind with MOTHER table... But with this solution all my flow control transforms are made two times...
Is there a solution to chain two insertions with a foreign key constraint in a data flow?
I have a SSIS pkg that gets data from SQL and do data conversion and Insert into OLE db AS400 destination, There is a flag column in SQL table , that has to be updated to true, once the records are inserted in AS400 how do i do that in SSIS
SQL oledb ---------> dataConversion ---------------> AS400 OLE db Destination | update SQL table Flag column<---------------------------------|
The DTS works perfectly when I run it manually. However, when I run itas a job it fails. Before you ask if i'm running it under differentsecurity context. I have already made sure of that. I was logged intothe server through remote viewer, when I created and ran the package,as well as scheduling the job. So the accounts they're running underare consistent. They're the same accounts as the SQL Agent is runningunder and it's the sys admin account.The data source is a Fox pro database with a pull of two tables. I amusing Microsoft OLE DB Foxpro driver as my source connection and OLE DBConnection for SQL Server as my destination. I am doing a simple tableto table transformation. The path of my connection is a mapped Drive:E:Main. There are other packages and jobs within my job queue that arepointing to the same database and they seem to run fine using the abovemapped drive. The ONLY difference between this package and otherpackages are that, they're few months old and this one was created lastnight. I have also enabled logging on this package and here is thebelow error when the job fails:Package Steps execution information:Step 'DTSStep_DTSDataPumpTask_1' failedStep Error Source: Microsoft OLE DB Provider for Visual FoxProStep Error Description:Invalid path or file name.Step Error code: 80040E21Step Error Help File:Step Error Help Context ID:0Step Execution Started: 9/23/2006 11:39:17 AMStep Execution Completed: 9/23/2006 11:39:17 AMTotal Step Execution Time: 0.031 secondsProgress count in Step: 0
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.
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?
