I need a solution on how to replace a line in my sql stored procedure that is using xp_cmdshell with FTP in SSIS.

Please, let me know if this is possible?  Can you replace your sql that is using xp_cmdshell with FTP in SSIS.  Rather then using xp_cmdshell to call your file, now use FTP instead.

Hi,

It depends on what you are doing with xp_cmdshell.

Yes, there is an ftp object in SSIS.

For FTPS I used a third party object. Once I had sorted everything out it was quite solid and stable.

We have some stored procedures that uses xp_cmdshell to read files from a direction, but instead of using that, we want to replace with ftp in SSIS.
Will this serve the same purpose as the ftp to access the files?

yes, you can use ftp task in ssis. its good to use ssis ftp instead of xp_cmdshell.

for your dynamic command syntax you have to use ssis expressions to accomplish all required needs.

Thanks,

In ssis ftp task contains option  for send file and receive file.

For that you can get as well as put files.
