I have an ODBC connection that I am using a SQL command to execute the query. It reads from an ORD_HDR table and joins to an ORD_DTL table. It uses this at the source and I have to put this data into a Fact table as the destination. I was told I should use the Merge statement to see if I should use an Insert or Update to the Fact table. I want to test this but Im not sure how to use the Merge so can someone help me on this please? Do I use the query that joins the 2 tables or do I make 2 connections, one for the ORD_HDR and one for the ORD_DTL and then the merge to see if I should Update or Insert? I want to do something like an Upsert. If the record exists then do an Update and if it doesnt then an Insert?
I think the expert meant in this case not the SSIS merge component but the T-SQL MERGE statement.
