I call a SSIS package from a C# application to transfer date from a SQL Server 2005 database to an oracle database.
I want to catch all errors in an oracle table. What can I do? in SSIS package or in Windows forms application?

My dtsx package contains a Data Flow Task. I try to define a container with a SQL task. Waht can I know in the C# application that there is or not one error?

Thanks for your help.

you can use precedence constraint after your dataflow task and connect it to a script task for example
then right click on precedence task and select type as failure
in this type you can catch the error and do appropriate actions, for example write a log in file, or send mail with send mail task or ...

you can also do this inside your data flow task to do appropriate action on any row in dataflow which has error on transfer operation

Thanks for your help.

Do you have perhaps a sample?

I try with  a sequence Container. I try to add a 'Execute SQL Task' for the OnError Event handler. Can work too?

What is the syntax for the SQLStatement?

if you want to do a simple error handling just use on error event handler and add a script task there and do your appropriate action.
but if you want to do deeper consideration on exact error descriptions in dataflow tasks you can use some articles like below:

and about syntax in sql statement, just use sql syntax which you used in your dbms,

I think if you want more deeper help, you must explain what you want to do exactly in this package.
