merge more than two tables in ssis

I have a few queries, that i would like to merge into one table based on a pk and a date key.

I hvae the queries, but in SSIS it looks like you can't merge more than two tables. What is the best way to do this in a transact -sql statement ?

Can you write 'these queries' as a single SQL Stored Procedure, that returns all of this as one set using UNION / UNION ALL / MERGE / JOINs / whatever, and then refer to that SP as an SSIS data source?

True, but you can use multiple MERGE components to pull off merging more than two tables.
Kinda hokey I know.

ok, so i tried this merge statement, it works on the first pass, but when there is data, i get a message that says:

Msg 8672, Level 16, State 1, Line 1
The MERGE statement attempted to UPDATE or DELETE the same row more than once. This happens when a target row matches more than one source row. A MERGE statement cannot UPDATE/DELETE the same row of the target table multiple times. Refine the ON clause to ensure a target row matches at most one source row, or use the GROUP BY clause to group the source rows.

any ideas ?


with busies as

(select imp_CallType.dt_DateTime, imp_CallType.str_EnterpriseName, imp_CallType.int_CallsOffered from
dbo.imp_CallType
inner join tbl_MasterMeasureMapping on
imp_CallType.str_EnterpriseName = tbl_MasterMeasureMapping.str_EnterpriseName
where tbl_MasterMeasureMapping.str_Busies = 'True' and
tbl_MasterMeasureMapping.str_DataType='Call Type' and
tbl_MasterMeasureMapping.str_Network = 'ATT')

 MERGE  stg_Fact_CallType AS target_table
        USING busies AS source_table
        ON            source_table.str_EnterpriseName = target_table.str_EnterpriseName
                and source_table.dt_DateTime = target_Table.dt_DateTime
        WHEN      MATCHED
            THEN      UPDATE
               SET         target_table.int_CallsOffered = source_Table.int_CallsOffered
        WHEN      NOT MATCHED BY TARGET
            THEN      INSERT
            (dt_DateTime,str_EnterpriseName,int_CallsOffered)
               VALUES       (dt_DateTime,
                                           str_EnterpriseName,
                             int_CallsOffered
                             
                            ) ;
