SSIS: Fail 'Execute SQL Task' container based on returned result.

Last Modified: 2012-05-11
I have an SSIS package which has a 'Execute SQL Task' componenet. This task calls some SQL and returns 0 if everything is OK and 1 if an error has been found. This code is all working as expected. What I am looking for is a way to fail the component if the return code is > 0.

The 'Execute Process Task' has similar functionality where you can use the 'FailTaskIfReturnCodeIsNotSuccessValue' and 'SuccessValue' fields. I need the equivelent functionality for the 'Execute SQL Task'.

You can use RAISERROR depending on return value of your code in t-sql code inside task.

Thanks for this suggestion, I agree that this may be the best way forward... I was hoping that the component could handle this itself rather than relying on a script component? Also why is there no SSIS section on EE?
