SQL and SSIS help please

Hi there,

Can anyone help with this please. I am trying to create an ssis package to handle the following. A csv file needs to be inserted into a table. An example csv looks like this.

B, 1, 10, 11, 12, 13, 14, 15, 16, 17, 18, 19, 2, 20, 21, 22, 23, 24, 25, 26, 27, 28, 29, 3, 30, 31, 32
CV, 1, 10, 11, 12, 13, 2, 21, 22, 23, 3, 31, 32, 33, 34, 35, 36, 37, 4, 47, 5, 6, 7, 8, 9

The number of columns can vary.

My ultimate aim is to populate a table with one column, so the above data would look like this.

B1
B10
B11
B12
B13
..
CV1
CV10
CV11
...

etc

Can someone help with this please?

Hi

You can use script task and write some dotnet code as below


            connectionString = "Driver={Microsoft Text Driver (*.txt; *.csv)};Dbq=" + importFolder + ";"
            conn = New Odbc.OdbcConnection(connectionString)

            da = New System.Data.Odbc.OdbcDataAdapter("select * from [" + fileName + "]", conn)
            da.Fill(dt)

you can query the dataset table and get your value and save to a variable
Then run the next task on this value

Thanks for the reply, couple of questions ..

Does the destination table have to exist before ssis can write to it, or can it build the table dynamically (the csv files will have a varying number of columns)

Say I have a table like this

Pcode      Val1      Val2
A      1      2
B      1      NULL
C      9      14

What SQL would I need to create a single column table like this?

A1
A2
B1
C9
C14

Hi

You can do both ways.
If the table already exists, you can map the columns returned by script task.
Or, you can create table with in the script task and insert into the table from the values returned from csv file.

I can see how that uses bulkcopy to get the data into a table using ssis.

What I need is the sql to create my 1 column table?
Hi,

You can create the table with single column(create table mytable (col varchar(50))
Execute that script. Once you get the csv file into columns. Loop through each column and insert into the table.
