Hi Guys,
In our source database we have got a booking table. I am planning for incremental load. I have a got a staging layer which i want to populate from OLTP source. I have already have an initial load done. My question is that in the booking table which contains 3 millions records at the moment and is growing quickly, bookings can be potentially updated. What is the most efficient way to track the updates and inserts from OLTP and populate my staging layer.
There is DateCreated field and DateUpdated field in the table. The dateupdated filed is null when there is no change in the booking.
 I am not allowed to apply CDC on transactional database.

As you have mentioned that you have filed like dateupdated in oltp database.

There are three scenario

1) If record is not updated in OLTP so dateupdated  will be null. And yes you can simply insert the data.

It means initial load

2) Record is already there. and also you have some data in dateupdated  in OLTP. You can compare this column from your staging table and OLTP database. it they do not match it means that their is an update and you can update this data in staging.

This code can be used in the scenario where you have some data in dateupdated  field in staging and you got new date in dateupdated filed in OLTP. so your data in staging must be updated and this can be achieved by  comparing both.

You can use below logic.


First use the look up between OLTP and staging table based on some id column between than If data is not available in staging simply insert.

If data is available means either data is updated or not updated.

This you can verify by just verifying dateupdated column in staging and dateupdated  column in OLTP.

You can do so by using Conditional split.

If there is difference means you have to update that.

Hope it will help you.
