SSIS. Execute SQL Task Parameter Mapping

Hi there,

I have this SQL query in the SQL Execute Task Editor:

INSERT INTO [aging].[dbo].[ag_ageddebtor]
SELECT * FROM [aging].[dbo].[ag_ageddebtor_staging]
WHERE [Co Code] IN (?)

Open in new window

.

In the parameter mapping I have the following user defined variable: 'User::CompanyCode' that has the following values ('8560',4956','5863','6245') and it is a string data type.

I have set the parameter mapping as follows for this variable:
1. Direction: Input
2. Data Type: VARCHAR
3. Parameter Name: 0
4. Parameter Size: -1

The SQL does not execute as expected i.e. returns 0 records.

However, if I put query in the SQL Execute task it works:

INSERT INTO [aging].[dbo].[ag_ageddebtor]
SELECT * FROM [aging].[dbo].[ag_ageddebtor_staging]
WHERE [Co Code] IN ('8560',4956','5863','6245')

Open in new window

.

What I'm I doing wrong?

Thanks

You said:

Does User::CompanyCode have ('8560',4956','5863','6245') or '8560',4956','5863','6245' - i.e. are the brackets included?

I think it's because SSIS is including an extra pair of quotes.

For example, you had

SELECT * FROM Production.Product WHERE ProductName like ?

and you had a parameter of Hello, then it would translate it as:

SELECT * FROM Production.Product WHERE ProductName like 'Hello'

Note that the above has gain extra quote marks.

Therefore, I imagine that SSIS is adding an extra pair of quotation marks around the entire parameter. I don't think the following code would work, yet that is what is being created:

INSERT INTO [aging].[dbo].[ag_ageddebtor]
SELECT * FROM [aging].[dbo].[ag_ageddebtor_staging]
WHERE [Co Code] IN ('''8560'',''4956'',''5863'',''6245''')

Open in new window


My suggestion, therefore, is to have the entirety of the SQL code passed as a parameter, i.e. create the entire SQL string yourself, and use that in the Execute SQL. Then there would be no problems.
