Do While Loops Works in TSQL but not SSIS

I am using a DO WHILE loop in tsql to populate two months worth of data with over 150 columns of information.  My query works in TSQL to where it displays all the information but I noticed that it is basically executing the query separately for each day in the two month timeframe.  I am guessing that is why when I try and run this stored procedure in SSIS to populate a new table it just writes the first record then finishes successfully.  I am guessing I should be using another statement besides DO WHILE or doing something different in SSIS?  Any feedback you can provide would be greatly appreciated.  Please advise.

Hi,

I wasn't aware that there was a do ... while loop in T-SQL. Can you show us your code?

Actually it is a WHILE loop... Attached is a sample of my query... there are several more columns.  What I would like to do is loop through this x number of times and insert all these records into a table by date... How is this possible?

Hi,

The problem is that the begin after the while is commented out.

simple while looks like this

declare @days int
set @days = 1

while @days <=  86 begin
    insert dbo.sometable
    select columns
    from dbo.someothertable
    where
        somedayscolumn = @days

    set @days = @days + 1

end

That is what I ended up doing since I didn't get a response.  I suppose this is the correct way to do it.
