SSIS

SQL Server Integration Services (SSIS) is a component of the Microsoft SQL Server database software that can be used to perform a broad range of data migration tasks. SSIS is a platform for data integration and workflow applications. It features a fast and flexible data warehousing tool used for data extraction, transformation, and loading (ETL). The tool may also be used to automate maintenance of SQL Server databases and updates to multidimensional cube data. SSIS replaced Data Transformation Services, which had been a feature of SQL Server since Version 7.0.

SQL SSMS was updated to v18, however, SSIS is not connecting. Web search stated if the versions do not match, SSIS will not connect to updated versions. The original SSMS is v14 and SSIS does connect (so I am regulated to use v14 SSIS). I have searched the internet for v18 SSIS with no luck and cannot find it to download.

Does anyone have a suggestion?

Hi, I have 3 flat file sources. Now I want to count the number of records in each flat file and I want to write the counts to a flat file in the below output.

FileName  Count

can anyone suggest me step by step on how exactly I achieve this ?
Many Thanks

I have a package that, amongst other things, is performing a data flow task to create a flat file from a SQL source. That task is within a ForEach loop container.
Upstream from the Foreach container is a script task that converts a comma-delimited string parameter into an ArrayList, which is the basis of the ForEach container. The list contains 'lookback months' (e.g. "12,24,36" or "18,24,30", etc.)
WIthin the ForEach container is a script task that I want to use to dynamically change the output filename. The 'base' filename is something like "extract_^MONTHS^.txt" and I am replacing the "^MONTHS^" placeholder with the actual value (e.g. extract_24.txt).
Following the script task is the data flow task that actually creates and populates the file.

How, within the script task do I actually change the Filename of the flat file connection manager?

What I tried, is I have an expression for a variable named FullFileName which concatenates the FilePath variable and FileName and the ConnectionString property is set to that value, so at runtime, initially, it would be something like "C:\SSIS\Data\Output\" + "extract_^MONTHS^.txt".

The script task within the Foreach container sets the value to C:\SSIS\Data\Output\extract_24.txt but, apparently, at that time, changing the string value does not actually change the connection.

Is there a Dts command I can issue within the script task to actually set the path for the flat file connection before I execute the data flow task.…

New installation of MSSQL 2017 on a new Windows Server OS 2016 installation. During the installation Integration services was selected to install and it successfully installed. The Integration services are running. There are two integration services with this version of MSSQL.  I can connect to Integration Services using SSMS 17.9.
I expected to see the Integration Services database SSISDB in the list of databases when I connect to the Database Engine using SSMS 17.9. But it is not listed. Articles state that it should be listed. What am I missing? How do I see the database SSISDB in SSMS?

Hi,
I have built a dtsx package using VS 2008 on Windows Server 2008 R2 Standard SP1 and it works fine when I use Preview in one of the OLE DB Source components (see below)
okHowever, I have installed the package in a different environment, VS Pro 2017 on Windows 10 Desktop and I am getting an error when I click Preview, see below.
I have checked the Connection Manager  and it Tests fine, also the same Connection Manager is used in multiple components in the package and it works fine.
Any ideas? If you need any more info please  ask.
Thanks.

we have migrated our SSIS packages from 2014 to 2016 in SSDT 2017.  I have a data flow task with odedb source connecting to a sql server DB with the below query. the package is running fine with no errors but no data is gettting populated
but if i run this in management studio its giving me 150 rows. Strange thing is if i remove the paramter conditions, its workign fine in SSIS but then IF i hardcode the dates its not populating any data again

do i need to refresh parameters or variables since we did the migration ? can anyone suggest what is causing this issue ?

Many Thanks


select * from vPBTF_Daily_Cash
where Round(Amount,2) <> 0
and Currency = 'GBP'
and (USERDATE = ? or (CD = ? and USERDATE < ?))

The above query is using a datetime variable with expresson (DT_DATE)(DT_DBDATE)GETDATE(). This will basically give todays date . for example 17/10/2019

I have an SSIS solution which has grown over the past few months to the stage where I need to break it out into separate solutions.
A bit of background: The project is migrating data from one database to a new system. Data is extracted from the old database into flat text files which I then import to SQL Server using SSIS Workflows. The data is then transformed and output to Excel templates ready for importing to the new system.

All of this works fine. Now we are coming up to the cut off date for data from the old system. This will be the dataset that forms the Live data in the new system. There is a period of one month between the data cut off and the use of the new system, during which time changes will be made on the old system. So, we have a requirement to produce delta output which generates records that have been Inserted, Deleted, or Updated. All of this is fine and the scripts are ready.

However, I've run into serious issues with memory with having both the main data migration and delta workflows in the same project. Therefore, I want to move the Delta workflow to a new solution. The way I've gone about doing this is to set up a new solution in VS 2017 (15.9.16), and adding an existing package to the solution. When I do this, it loses the Connection to the database. So, I've tried creating the connection prior to adding the existing package, yet I get the same result.

I could go through every data flow task and update the connection, but this also requires …

Hi,
I have built an SSIS package in VS2017 which runs fine in Debugger mode.
I am trying to call the package from a SQL Server Agent job that sits on a SQL Server 2008R2.
Using SSMS on the 2008R2 Server I am trying to load the Package from the File System into the job but when I try to add the Package , I get the following error
TITLE: SSIS Execution Properties
The package failed to load due to error 0xC0010014 "One or more error occurred. There should be more specific errors preceding this one that explains the details of the errors. This message is used as a return value from functions that encounter errors.". This occurs when CPackage::LoadFromXML fails.
Any guidance appreciated

SQL Server 2012 and VS 2013 for SSIS.

I want to set up a connection in my packages to point to a configuration table for the packages other connections (OLE DB, Flat File, and Excel).  I have read you can use a system environment variable to do that so that when you promote the packages to different servers, it will pick up the environment variable (named the same) and point the package to the correct configuration table on that server (for dev, test, and prod).

I have a system environment variable set up (SSIS_Config) with the connection string for the SSIS Configuration table in it on the server and a data source (dsSSISConfig) in each package to connect to the SSIS Configuration table.  There are a couple of other data sources in the packages that I want to config from the SSIS Configuration table and have it set up for them.

So how do I make the dsSSISConfig data source use the system environment variable SSIS_Config?  Can I do that?  I can't seem to find a good example of how to set it up.  Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Thank you!

Hi, I have few SSIS packages. NOw I want to deploy them. However I can see that our DBA has not
installed any Integration services on the server. But he asked me to just create a Job in SQL Server
agent and call the SSIS Package from the path and schedue it.

can anyone pleae let me know this will work and is this a good strategy ? I thought we need to first
import the SSIS package into the SSIS server and then call this from SQL server agent for the job schedue.

Many Thanks

First, I'm a novice with SSIS, having mostly just maintained existing packages.  I have a project that I upgraded from SQL Server 2008 R2/Visual Studio 2008 to SQL Server 2016 (deployment model) in VS 2017.  All of the packages work running locally on my machine just as they always have, with the exception of one.  

This loops through oledb source servers  using a connection string built by variables received from a query.  Then it starts the control flows, which each has a series of data flow queries.    The weird thing is sometimes it runs fine.  Most of the time I get errors like this:

[NetComply - CollectionMembers [212]] Error: SSIS Error Code DTS_E_OLEDBERROR.  An OLE DB error has occurred. Error code: 0x80004005.

I want my business analysts to have access to the nice dashboard reports in SSIS Catalog. But i dont want to give them access to SQL.

Where are the canned SSIS Catalog reports located? Im interest in " All Executions" and "Overview"  per execution.

So I can place this RDL's on the Report Server and put them on a subscription so i can send them to the business team.

Im not finding them anywhere. And nothing im finding on the web arent quite what i need.

PROBLEM: if the connection manager for  FLAT FILE DESTINATION does see the existence of the text file, then I get the error 'Either the file does not exist or you do not have permissions to access the file'

How can I create a task that creates a blank text file so that the file would exist?

can anyone please give me that SQL with the header and footer ?

I think the title says it all. If I don't have a package variable named user::MyVar defined in the package, can it be created at run-time?

I want to be able to populate it with a value in a subsequent T-SQL Script Task.

Just for clarification, I only want to create it (as a string variable) if it does not exist. Its value will be set elsewhere.

Hi,

We are using SQL SERVER 2016 in the Microsoft Azure cloud.  I have an existing ssis package that gets data from a sharepoint 2016 list.

I’m using vs2017.  The package runs fine on my workstation but not in the Microsoft Azure cloud.
Cloud error log says:  version 14 script is not supported.
So I changed the ssis targetServerVersion from 2017 to 2014, and that error went away.

But a new error appeared: odata source could not be upgraded to the newer version of the component.  The performance upgrade failed.

Note: the cloud does not show the OData source driver, the Azure cloud admin said use ‘sharepoint list adapter 2014’ driver.

Question:  should i get odata source working or replace how it gets data from a sharepoint list by using ‘sharepoint list adapter 2014’?
Please provide an example how to deploy ‘sharepoint list adapter 2014’ in SSIS (Visual Studio 2017).

thank you

Hi,

currently, we have tables in SQL server and SSIS jobs created for reporting. With the Azure coming up soon, we will have to get everything to azure, including all tables. SQL server is slated to go away sometime soon
Now I am on the  business side and created a lot of SSIS jobs all this time -

1)how difficult does the transition to Azure looks like?

2)Do I have to recreate all SSIS jobs in Azure and if so how? OR Auzre converts SSIS jobs into Azure equivalent jobs?

3) Is there something similar to "SQL server Data Tools " that I can use in Azure to create small ETLs, data transformation  and data flows etc

thanks

I have a package that loads 300 tables from DB2 to SQL Server.  We added a column to all the DB2 tables to keep track of changes named DW_LASTTIME.  
My question is, each table has a data flow task with the source table having a variable like this to pull the data.

"SELECT * FROM ABC WHERE LASTTIME >= " +  @[User::strAdjLastRunTime] +" WITH ur"

Open in new window


So I need to update all 300 to make it say

"SELECT * FROM ABC WHERE DW_LASTTIME >= " +  @[User::strAdjLastRunTime] +" WITH ur"

Open in new window

Is there any way to do this without having to manually open and update each dataflow?  Like in a text editor or something?  I know SSIS packages are just XML files but I was told if you mess with the actually file, it can corrupt it.

Thanks!
