SQL Server 2012 :: Read Dynamic Columns From Excel File Into SSIS

Nov 11, 2014

I have an excel file which has dynamic columns

i.e. Col1, Col2, Col3 this week. next week i will have a new Col4 in the sheet. This will keep on adding every week.

My problem is to Unpivot the data

Date 8/2/2013 8/9/2013 8/16/2013

Stock 1,561 1,661 1,761

i.e. the abobe table should become as

Date Stock

8/2/2013 1561
8/9/2013 1661
8/16/2013 1,761

How can I unpivot the dynamic columns given that the columns will keep on increasing every week.

SQL 2012 :: OPENROWSET To Read In Data From Excel 2010 File (XLSX)

Jun 12, 2015

I have a test server (TEST1) running SQL 2012 and Windows 2012R2. One of the developers wants to use OPENROWSET to read in data from an Excel 2010 file (an xlsx file).

I have loaded the Microsoft Drivers in "AccessDatabaseEngine_64.exe" and enabled the Ad Hoc Distributed Queries option in SQL.

This is the sample code we are working with:

'Driver={Microsoft Excel Driver (*.xls, *.xlsx, *.xlsm, *.xlsb)};DBQ=etworkserverFolder1Folder2MEMBIDs.xlsx',
'SELECT * FROM [Sheet1$]'
) AS X

I can run the sample query from my laptop with SSMS (I have admin rights) and I can also run it as SA from my laptop. So all is good, right?

But if I RDC into TEST1, I cannot run the query. I get this error:

OLE DB provider "MSDASQL" for linked server "(null)" returned message "[Microsoft][ODBC Excel Driver] Your network access was interrupted. To continue, close the database, and then open it again.".
OLE DB provider "MSDASQL" for linked server "(null)" returned message "[Microsoft][ODBC Excel Driver]General error Unable to open registry key Temporary (volatile) Ace DSN for process 0x574 Thread 0xb74 DBC 0x1d07f08 Excel'.".
OLE DB provider "MSDASQL" for linked server "(null)" returned message "[Microsoft][ODBC Excel Driver]General error Unable to open registry key Temporary (volatile) Ace DSN for process 0x574 Thread 0xb74 DBC 0x1d07f08 Excel'.".
Msg 7303, Level 16, State 1, Line 1
Cannot initialize the data source object of OLE DB provider "MSDASQL" for linked server "(null)".But wait! It gets better.

I can run the query as SA from TEST1.

And of course, the developer can't run it either.

And it works fine in the production server.

I'm thinking the basics are there but something isn't right in some permission somewhere.

Integration Services :: How To Make SSIS Read Excel File

Dec 7, 2011

I’ve been trying for a while now (won’t say how long), to get BIDS to read a very simple Excel file. 

I’m talking SIMPLE!!  No matter what I don, SSIS keeps throwing an error, and of course it doesn’t say what the error is, so I can’t really debug it. 

I’ve tried this at least 20x with flat files, and it works perfect each time. I’ve done Data Conversions, Sorting, Union All, and several other Transformations; all work perfect. 

Trying to used Excel as a data source, is proving to be a mind numbing experience. Of over 20 different attempts, it hasn’t worked even once. I can make it as simple as you can possibly imagine, and SSIS, refuses to even perform the first step (I’m not even trying to create a table in SQL Server anymore). 

I have the Excel file path (very simple)

I have the Excel version (very simple)

I have the Connection Manager (very simple)

I have the Sheet name (very simple)
All I can do is see a preview of the Excel sheet before the process runs.  As soon as I het F5, I get an instant error, for no reason whatsoever, and no debugging options,whatsoever.

SSIS is able to pick 123 only and not 123.45. however if I change the data type to Numeric in the excel, SSIS is able to read data as 123.45.Any solution other than changing data type in Excel?

Importing Excel Sheet Which Have Dynamic Column Name And Dynamic Number Of Columns

Aug 25, 2007

Hi Craig/Kamal,

I got your email address from your web cast. I really enjoyed the web cast and found it to be
very informative.

Our company is planning to use SSIS (VS 2005 / SQL Server 2005). I have a quick question
regarding the product. I have looked for the information on the web, but was not able to find
relevant information.

We are getting Source data from two of our client in the form of Excel Sheet. These Excel sheets
Are generated using reporting services. On examining the excel sheet, I found out that the name
Of the columns contain data itself, so the names are not static such as Jan 2007 Sales, Feb 2007 Sales etc etc.
And even the number of columns are not static. It depends upon the range of date selected by the user.

I wanted to know, if there is a way to import Excel sheet using Integration Services by defining the position
Of column, instead of column name and I am not sure if there is a way for me to import excel with dynamic
Number of columns.

Your help in this respect is highly appreciated!


Hi Anthony, I am glad the Web cast was helpful.

Kamal and I have both moved on to other teams in MSFT and I am a little rusty in that area, though in general dynamic numbers of columns in any format is always tricky. I am just assuming its not feasible for you to try and get the source for SSIS a little closer to home, e.g. rather than using Excel output from Reporting Services, use the same/some form of the query/data source that RS is using.

I suggest you post a question on the SSIS forum on MSDN and you should get some good answers.

Certain Numeric Fields Not Read From The Excel File When Using A Excel File Source.

Jul 20, 2006

I have the Excel Connection Manager and Source to read the contents from an Excel file. For some reason couple of numeric fields from the Excel worksheet are brought over as nulls even though they have a value of 300 and 150. I am not sure why this is happening. I looked into the format of the fields and they are set to General in Excel, I tried setting them to numeric and that did not help.

All the other content from the excel file is coming thru except for the 2 numeric fields.

I tried to bring the contents from the excel source to a text file in csv format and for some reason the 2 numeric fields came out as blank.

Any inputs on getting this addressed will be much appreciated.

SQL Server 2012 :: Dynamic Table Pivot With Multiple Columns

Jan 23, 2014

I am trying to pivot table DYNAMICALLY but couldn't get the desired result .

Here is the code to create a table

create table Report
deck char(3),
Jib_in float,
rev int,
rev_insight int,
jib_out float,

[Code] .....

Code written so far. this pivots the column deck and jib_in into rows but thats it only TWO ROWS i.e the one i put inside aggregate function under PIVOT function and one i put inside QUOTENAME()

SET @columns = N'';
SELECT @columns += N', p.' + QUOTENAME(deck)
FROM (SELECT p.deck FROM dbo.report AS p
GROUP BY p.deck) AS x;

[Code] ....

I need all the columns to be pivoted and show on the pivoted table. I am very new at dynamic pivot. I tried so many ways to add other columns but no avail!!

SQL Server 2012 :: How To Join Pivot Results With Dynamic Columns

Mar 5, 2015

I have a lookup table, as below. Each triggercode can have several service codes.


I then have a table of accounts, and each account can have one to many service codes. This table also has the rate for each code.

11518801DSRDISC -2
11571901BBRZFET 5
11571901RBNDLOC 0
11571901CDHCTC 0
17412902CDHCTC1 0
14706401ULDBND2 2
14706401RBNDLOC 3

What I would like to end up with is a pivot table of each account, the trigger code and service codes attached to that account, and the rate for each.

I have been able to dynamically get the pivot, but I'm not joining correctly, as its returning every dynamic column, not just the columns of a trigger code. The code below will return the account and trigger code, but also every service code, regardless of which trigger code they belong to, and just show null values.

What I would like to get is just the service codes and the appropriate trigger code for each account.

SELECT @cols = STUFF((SELECT DISTINCT ',' + ServiceCode
FROM TriggerTable
).value('(./text())[1]', 'VARCHAR(MAX)')

[Code] ....

SQL Server 2012 :: Convert Rows To Columns Using Dynamic PIVOT Table

Feb 3, 2015

I have this query:

SELECT TOP (100) PERCENT dbo.Filteredfs_franchise.fs_franchiseid AS FranchiseId, dbo.Filteredfs_franchise.fs_brandidname AS Brand,
dbo.Filteredfs_franchise.fs_franchisetypename AS [Franchise Type], dbo.Filteredfs_franchise.fs_franchisenumber AS [Franchise Number],
dbo.Filteredfs_franchise.fs_transactiontypename AS [Transaction Type], dbo.Filteredfs_franchise.fs_franchisestatusname AS [Status Code],

[Code] ....

I need to pivot this so I can get one row per franchiseID and multiple columns for [Franchisee Name Entity] and [Franchise Name Individual]. Each [Franchisee Name Entity] and [Franchise Name Individual] has associated percentage of ownership.

This has to be dynamic, because each FranchiseID can have anywhere from 1 to 12 respective owners and those can be any combination of of Entity and Individual. Please, see the attached example for Franchise Number 129 (that one would have 6 additional columns because there are 3 Individual owners with 1 respective Percentage of ownership).

The question is how do I PIVOT and preserve the percentage of ownership?

I created the connection on the Data ribbon by going to From Other Sources --> From SQL Server and using the Data Connection Wizard.

SSIS Excel Source Read Problem

Jun 23, 2006

I have a problem with reading data from an Excel file in SSIS. I'm trying to read a column that mostly consists of decimal values, but there are couple places where column entry is 2 numbers separated by a slash (e.g. "100/6.0"). SSIS tries to be smart and identifies the column data type as decimal and when it reads the cell with the slash in it, it reads as NULL. I tried to make my excel source reader component to read that cell as a string, but it gives me an error. If anybody has come across something like this, I would highly appreciate some help

SQL 2012 :: How To Do Selective Read Of File Stored In File Table

Jul 2, 2015

I have a filetable that contains a binary file. I need to do a selective read of the file stored in the file table. I can write a C# CLR function that will open the file, read n bytes the from a starting byte. Or I can write a SQL statement that reads the stream in the filetable into a VARBINARY variable using SUBSTRING beginning at the starting byte (offset from 1) for the same n bytes.

Both give me the same result. However, the SQL statement takes considerably longer to read. I know there is overhead in reading through SQL (interpreted language), but the difference in performance is substantial, and I can only attribute this performance degradation if SQL first tries to "load" the entire stream before it identifies the portion of the stream that it needs to read beginning at the starting byte offset.

I wonder if this is the case or if there is another option to read a stream from a filetable directly through SQL queries that is more efficient.

Before I throw in the towel, I just wanted to get feedback from this group if it still is not possible in the latest versions of SQLServer and SSIS, or to ask if there are any other 3rd party solutions that can do this today.

One way of doing this , that I can think of right now is individually querying the Transactions table for each of the store in the excel sheet and then copy the results output back to the excel sheet.

Is there a way I can write a query against all the Store names from the excel file ? I need to get this done in the next few hours.

SAN Group RI 100,000 Jimi Hendrix
123 Agency MA 300,000 Mickey Mouse
Rogers Inc MA 50,000 Mike Greenwell

I want to be able to read the file and create new excel files for each Agent listed. So for Example, the above file would create 3 separate files since there are 3 different Agents listed. Each Agent file would contain the same information from the original file. The name of the file would be somethign like AgentName.xls...So the SAN group file would have this:

Agent State Exposure Insured Name
Rogers Inc MA 100,000 John Smith
SAN Group RI 200,000 Jim Morrison
SAN Group RI 100,000 Jimi Hendrix

Is there a way to accomplish this in SSIS?
