How to handle Try/Catch error handling in Source task within a data flow

Hi All

I have an SSIS package with a number of data flow tasks with OLE DB Source tasks that execute SP's.

I'd like SP to have the ability to return somewhat English-sounding error message if an error occurs within the SP.
Doing this within a SP using a TRY/CATCH block is no biggie, but I'm trying to figure out how to handle this within my SSIS data flow task.

As far as I can tell, with OLE DB Source tasks if there is any difference between what is returned, and what is pre-mapped to an OLE DB Destination task, SSIS will throw a runtime error, with different error properties that what would be trapped by a TRY..CATCH block within T-SQL.

Has anyone pulled this off?

Thanks in advance.
Jim

Hi jimhorn,

I'm not completely sure I understand your question.  Yes, SSIS will throw the same error that your procedure throws.  Here's a test package to show you if it helps.

If you are wanting to actually catch that error, you're gonna need to use a script component with a try/catch block in it.

Pretty much the answer I was expecting, as SSIS doens't handle one schema for success, another schema for errors.

Thanks.
