load the latest file from FTP to Target table.

Hi,

Requirement : Need to copy the latest  CSV file from FTP Shared drive to my local machine and then need to load it to the Target Table(SQL SERVER 2008) using the SSIS 2008.

Step 1:  Will get the latest file from the FTP Drive using the Script task  as mentioned below

http://www.rad.pasfu.com/index.php?/archives/30-Find-Last-Created-File-in-Special-Directory-SSIS.html

Step 2

After getting the latest file (with time stamp) , I am unsure how to copy it to the folder in my local machine and then rename the file to  a Specified Name("ContactDetails")  as mentioned in the Flat file Connection Manager ?

Example: Files in the FTP Shared Drive

ContactDetailsApril6.csv
ContactDetailsApril7.csv
ContactDetailsApril8.csv
ContactDetailsApril9.csv
ContactDetailsApril10.csv

Here ContactDetailsApril10.csv is the latest file


Could you please help me with the solution in detail and also please suggest that solution mentioned in Step 1 works fine.

Regards,

Sreekanth.

you have to use ft task for ftp which use for copy file ftp to your location you can use expressions for that to copy files.

and for load in table use dataflow task in which use flate file source and destination as a oldb destination which is to your sql table.

Variable 1 : Latest File name
Variable 2 : Local Folder Filename

.---> Variable 1 : this data you will get from your step 1

2. in Control flow drag and drop the "FTP Task " .Set  the the connection and select the opeartion (move the file to the local folder )

Refer :http://f5debug.net/2011/03/15/sql-server-integration-services-ssis-%E2%80%93-part-22-%E2%80%93-receive-file-using-ftp-task-in-ssis-package/

3. place the Script task will assign the "Variable 2 : " file name .
