SSIS Importing CSV file
Posted on 2010-08-25
I have set up a Flat File Source in SSIS to load in a CSV file. The trouble that I am having is that some rows have 10 columns, some have 15. When I set up the column structure, the first row had 10 columns, so I added the missing columns to the data structure, but when I do that, it does not appear to be picking up the CR/LF characters, so in the column that I create, it looks like its pulling in the CR/LF control characters followed by the first value of the new line and so on.
I've tried all the variations of the row delimiter, but nothing seems to work as the line feed and properly load the new line of data.
Could it be that the csv source file has an unknown CR/LF character or am I not setting up the parameters of the file connection properly?
