SSIS:Data Conversion Failed On Flat File Destination

Dec 15, 2006

[Flat File Destination [46500]] Error: Data conversion failed. The data conversion for column "Column 0" returned status value 4 and status text "Text was truncated or one or more characters had no match in the target code page." What does this error mean exactly?

I am taking columns from a flat file source. Then I am adding some new columns then rewriting the file to a ragged file format with fixed column values. I've taken the Destination component off and it works fine. So I know it could be the destination component but what could it be? Any ideas?

SSIS Flat File Loading - Data Type Conversion

Apr 24, 2007

It seems I can do the type conversion in two place:

1. The advanced editor for flat file source => Input and output roperties. And I can set the output columns data type properties there.

2. Using a Data conversion box in Data flow transformation.

Any difference between these two? Which one should be used?

SSIS Logging To Flat File Destination

Jul 24, 2006


I am trying to use a conditional split task so that I can check for specific fields. If the value doesn't exist I am piping the records to a derived field task, where I add an error. I then try to send these records to a flat file destination so that I can keep track of them. However, when I execute the SSIS data flow task I get the following error

[Log Invalid Records [5496]] Warning: The process cannot access the file because it is being used by another process.

This file isn't being used by any other process as far as I can tell, and the only process using it is the SSIS task trying to write to it.

If anyone has any ideas, then I would really really appreciate it

SSIS - Variable In Flat File Destination

Oct 3, 2007


Here is my problem :
I work on a SSIS package with SQL SERVER 2005
I need to extract data from a table and put these data in csv files

But... the flat files name should be dynamic and assigned by a variable ...

Here's an example of my table :

Column header :
Id, Name, Number
1 TOM 22
2 TOTO 44
3 SAM 44
4 RADIO 55

I expect to have 3 csv files :

for example : USER_44.csv contains :

if there's 50 different number, i expect 50 files

can i do that in a dataflow ?

thanks for answering

SSIS Database Table To Flat File Destination With Column Headings

Sep 8, 2006


I have a simple enough task to complete that I canÄôt seem to find the answer to.

The task is this Äď

Select table x from the database and write it to a flat file complete with that tables column headings.

Now IÄôve managed to set up an ole db datasource and selected the table and IÄôve also linked it to the flat file output.  So now I can generate a flat file from the database.  However no column headings appear in the flat file. 

I canÄôt seem to find anywhere (like a checkbox) that will also output the column headings to the flat file. 

Now I can add in Headings manually in the properties of the Flat File Destination object but the columns that appear in the flat file donÄôt appear to be in the order that I requested them in the SQL.

So the question is how do I automatically have the column headings appear for flat file output (ideally without me having to manually add them in).

If it canÄôt be done and I have to use a script instead then would anyone have an example script of how to do it?

Thanks in advance for anyone who manages to answer this.

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?

I am transferring data from an OLEDB source to a Flat File Destination and I want the column width for all of the output columns to 30 (max width amongst the columns selected), but that is not refected in the Fixed Width Flat File that got created. 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.

How To Append Data To A Destination Flat File Without Appending The Column Names Again

Mar 13, 2008

Hello guys,

here is my issue.

I created a ssis package which exports the data from oledb source to flat file (csv format). For this i have OLEDB source and Flat File as destination. I generate the file and filename dynamically with the column names in the first row. So if the dynamically generated file name already exists , then i want to append the data in the same existing file. But I dont want to append the column names again. I just want to append the rows to the existing rows.

so lets say first time i generate a file called File1_3132008.csv.

Col1, Col2

After some days if my ssis package generates the same file name i.e. File1_3132008.csv, this time i just want to append the rows to the existing file. So the file should look like this-
Col1, Col21,23,45,67,8

But instead my file looks like this if i set Overwrite propery to false


Can anyone help me to get the file as shown in the highlighed

Any help would be appreciated .

SSIS - Data Conversion Failed - The Value Could Not Be Converted Because Of A Potential Loss Of Data.

Aug 3, 2006



I have an odd problem that is driving me nutz. I have a very simple SSIS package that imports a 5 colum flatfile into a sql Server 2005 Table.

When I created this package with the wizzard, it will execute perfectly fine and processes all rows into the destination table.

But when I hit F5 to execute it manually it will fail before inserting a single row.


The error it generates is (Spalte 5 is a Datetime in the format DD.MM.YYYY) :

Error: 0xC02020A1 at Datenflusstask, Source - Daten_NC_1_txt [1]: Data conversion failed. The data conversion for column "Spalte 5" returned status value 2 and status text "The value could not be converted because of a potential loss of data.".

Error: 0xC0209029 at Datenflusstask, Source - Daten_NC_1_txt [1]: The "output column "Spalte 5" (25)" failed because error code 0xC0209084 occurred, and the error row disposition on "output column "Spalte 5" (25)" specifies failure on error. An error occurred on the specified object of the specified component.

Error: 0xC0202092 at Datenflusstask, Source - Daten_NC_1_txt [1]: An error occurred while processing file "C:WorkDaten_NC_1.txt" on data row 177.

SSIS - Data Flow To Flat File - Insert At Start Of File

Oct 24, 2007

Hi all,

In a foreachloop, I am inserting records into a flat file which is working fine. But the thing is that as the file grows, it takes longer for it to locate the EOF(End of File) of the flat file so as to insert the records.

I have around 70-100 lines written to the file at each loop and there are more than 20k records to be looped. wihich means that at the end I should be having 1400k - 20000k line in the text file.

One solution would be to insert the records at the start of the file itself so that it does not has to lookup the EOF each time before writting.

Another would be to generate separate files and then merge it.

Any idea how can this can be done?

Beside this I have to zip the file and then SFTP to a given address.

Any suggestion or help would be welcome.

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‚ÄôComms_File_‚Äô + ‚ÄėUser::FileNumber‚Äô+‚Äô_‚Äô+Date +‚Äô.txt‚Äô

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

* Enumerator Set to: ‚ÄúForeach ADO Enumerator‚ÄĚ with the ADO object source variable selected to identify how many total loop iterations there are i.e. Let‚Äôs say 4 thus 4 files to be created

*Variable Mappings : added the User::FileNumber ‚Äď 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 ‚Äď 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

Flat File Destination - Don't Create File If 0 Records

Apr 17, 2008

Hello friends,

I have the following (simplified):

1. Flat File Source
2. Conditional Split, Case Good = !ISNULL(KEY) Case Error = ISNULL(KEY)
3. Case Good -> Writes to Good Flat File (with timestamp in the title)
4. Case Error -> Writes to Error Flat File (with timestamp in the title)

Most job runs have no errors but the error file is created as a zero byte file anyway. If there are no error records I don't want the error file created. How might I accomplish this?

Row Count In Flat File Data Source Using SSIS

Jan 29, 2008


I am trying to impliment a SSIS package where data source is a Flat file(.csv) file and destination is a sql server database.

The problem is my data source a flat file which consists of thousands of rows which are manually entered, so there is always a chance that in some rows they may miss a column value while entering data which results in an error.

Example: My flat file has headers like Sln, Name, Age, Designation. While entering data they may miss age and type it as 1,aaa,Consultant,,

Using SSIS package i want to track all row number in the flat file where data is entered wrongly so that i can correct only that row instead of checking all rows each time when my SSIS package throughs an error. I want to get all the row numbers in a sql server database which are wrongly entered.

Any suggestions are sincerly apriciated.

Thanks in advance

Help To Encrypt A Flat File Destination

Mar 14, 2007

I am using SSIS to create a weekly data extraction that will be emailed to an external agency. I can extract the data, create the file and email it without any problems but I want to compress and encrypt it before I send to give some measure of protection to sensitive data it would contain.

If I did this manually, I would simply use Winzip to compress and encrypt the file to be sent. How can I achieve a similar result programtically?

Dynamic Flat File Destination Name!

May 4, 2007


I am trying to access from OLE DB source. And based on one of the columns, I need to write the data to a Flat File Destination.

For Example,

CustID, ProductID, Product Name, Product Description

Say I am going to write to a different Flat File for every product. So if there are 10 products in the data. There should be 10 Flat Files. Also the file name should include the Product Name And Product ID.

It is being done in a single Data Flow Task.

Right now the Property Expression for the File Name is which is not working)

Code Snippet@DestFolder + [Data Conversion].ProductID + @TodaysDate + ".txt"

The ProductIDs are in the ascending order. Any help or guidance?

Flat File Name As SSIS Data Source Input Parameter

Feb 29, 2008

Each day I receive a file with a different name. For example, the name is filename_mmddyyyy.txt where filename_ stays constant and mmddyyyy is the date of the file. The file is always in the same format.

I want to build an SSIS where I pass it this file name. I can write a script to generate the correct file name. How do I build the SSIS so it can accept the input parameter and find the correct file to process?

Dynamic Columns For Flat File Destination?

Jul 10, 2006

I have a database app, and we're implementing various data export features using SSIS.

Basically, it's a couple of straight extracts of various recordsets/views, etc. to CSV (flat files) from our SQL Server 2005 database, so I'm creating an SSIS package for each of these datasets.

So far, so good, but my problem comes here: My requirements call for users to select from a list of available columns the fields that they want to include in their exported file. Then, the package should run, but only output the columns specified by the user.

Does anyone have any idea as to the best way to accomplish this? To recap, at design time, I know which columns the users will have to choose from, but at run time, they will specify the columns to export to the flat file.

Any help or guidance here is greatly appreciated

Dynamic Destination Flat File Loading

Jan 4, 2006

Here's what I want to do -

Dynamically load a flat file from a dynamic source table-

The source table metadata is known via the SYSOBJECTS and SYSCOLUMNS tables- I can pull the column names, type and lengths from these tables based on the table name. (my goal is pretty simple- pull data from a table in our database, and save it down to a flat file)

Would this be enough to dynamically create the destination flat file?  If so, how do I do it?

Not Able To Map View Columns To A Flat File Destination

Oct 16, 2007


I have a dataflow task with two components: OLE DB source --> Flat File destination

In the OLE DB source, I am accessing a view, not a table.

However, when I attempt to map the view's input columns to the flat file destination columns, the screen is completely blank. There's none of the usual drop downs that let you select the column name, nor can I drag and drop the input column from the upper pane to the lower pane.

Is there a trick to doing this?
