Hi,

       I am new to DTS. How can I implement the following situation in DTS Package.

1. get data from EXCEL and define the key fileds in FILE A,
2. Check for existence of record in FILE A with the above defined key fields.
3. If the record exists in File A, Then Update.
    Else, Insert

I have 2 different Queries for Update & Insert for File A. But, don't know how & where to put condition to check record existence.

Can anyone help me??

Personally, I would insert the contents of the Excel file into a temp table and then issue simple update/insert statements.  If you don't want to do this, you can use the Data Driven Query (DDQ) task of DTS to load the data with insert/update conditions.

So, if you insert the excel contents into a table called Staging it would look something like this in your execute SQL task:

update yourtable
set col1=staging.col1, col2=staging.col2
from yourtable inner join staging
on yourtable.key=staging.key


insert into your table (co1,col2)
select col1,col2 from staging left join yourtable on staging.key=yourtable.key
where yourtable.key is null

I did the same. but, the problem is i need to derive the keys by using couple of other tables. So, some how i am not able to insert with the following query.... If I remove the 'F' part, then i am able to insert. but, if i don't use that condition, i will end up with duplicate records.


INSERT INTO   CUSTOMER_FACT
(CUST_KEY,COUNTRY_KEY,CURRENCY_KEY,CALENDAR_KEY,  
GROSS_SALES_LOCAL, GROSS_SALES_US)
SELECT A.CUST_KEY,B.COUNTRY_KEY,C.CURRENCY_KEY,D.CALENDAR_KEY,  
E.GROSS_SALES_LOCAL, E.GROSS_SALES_LOCAL * C.RATE
FROM         CUSTOMER A, COUNTRY B, CURRENCY_CONVERSION_RATES C, CALENDAR_DATE D, CUSTOMER_STAGING E, CUSTOMER_FACT F
WHERE     A.CUST_NAME = E.CUST_NAME AND
B.COUNTRY_NAME = E.COUNTRY_NAME AND
B.COUNTRY_CURRENCY_CODE = C.FROM_CURRENCY_CODE AND
C.CURRENCY_CONVERSION_FISCAL_YEA = D.YEAR AND
C.CURRENCY_CONVERSION_MONTH = E.MONTH AND
C.CURRENCY_CONVERSION_TYPE  LIKE 'YTD'  AND
D.YEAR = E.YEAR AND
D.MONTH_DESC = E.MONTH_DESC AND


F.CUST_KEY IS NULL AND
F.COUNTRY_KEY IS NULL AND
F.CURRENCY_KEY IS NULL AND
F.CALENDAR_KEY IS NULL

So do you not return records when you remove the Customer_FACT?

Yes i am able to insert but, when we get the same records in next load from EXCEL, this query will insert them as well with out any check for existence of records. that means we will have duplicates. because all those keys are foreign keys.

Here is the sequence I am following:

1. Delete Staging file
On Success,
2. import EXCEL in to Staging file
On Success,
3. Update FACT File if the record not exists.
On Success,
4. Insert records in to FACT file if the record not exists.

Look at my post above dated "Date: 09/07/2004 12:45PM MDT".  You will have an insert statement and an update statement.  Both will utilize the existing table to check for the existence of the record.  You can also use the DDQ task...
