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.

I need to fetch a description based on ,maybe, two lookup in SSIS.

So I have first to check in the sub-category table with look-up to fetch the category name based on key,

else check at the category table with a lookup . I used a 2nd lookup in the no match output, but that's wrong because I get duplicates [if there is a join in both match outputs]. Any advice?

Can anyone help me regarding scripts for monitoring SSIS and SSRS (SQL Server 2012/2014/2016).

Can anyone give me step-by-step instructions on how to just get this task to successfully execute my stored procedure.  The error messages are getting worse
  • "Value does not fall within the expected range.". Possible failure reasons: Problems with the query, "ResultSet" property not set correctly, parameters not set correctly, or connection not established correctly"
  • "The query failed to parse. Attempted to read or write protected memory. This is often an indication that other memory is corrupt."
  • "The EXEC SQL construct or statement is not supported."

At this point, I'd just like to get the stored procedure working.  All it's doing is having a parameter string value passed into it from a user defined variable in the package and then assigning a value to the SP output parameter which then gets assigned to a different package user variable.

My environment:  Windows 7 Professional, SQL Server/Visual Studio 2005

Any suggestions?
Hi, hoping somebody could give me a quick hand with this. Normally I would try figure it out on my own but I am on a very tight time scale and its not something I would usually deal with.

We have been given an XML file that has 2 namespaces, which I have read SSIS will not support.

I want to use an XML task to strip the first namespace. How would I go about doing this?

I have created an XML Task in SSIS, in the input I have put the link to my XML file, then in the output I just left it to "Save operation Result"

In the Second Operand I have put direct input and typed in exclude-result-prefixes="ms ns xsi"   However I am getting an error when I run the code saying it cant find any XML.

Any help / point in the right direction would be really appreciated.
Hi All,

Could you please advise how to achieve below requirement (using SSIS or any other methods)

I have T-SQL Server query and Oracle SP (SP is located on Oracle DB).

Now I want to update records on Oracle DB table using Oracle SP. Before updating records on Oracle, 1st SP validates data of MS SQL query output (if record is exist in SQL server and Oracle table (or if matches on both), then update oracle DB table else ignore...this is logic of SP)

Can you please tell me how to design SSIS package for above requirement in SQL 2014.
I work in one of the largest health insurance company, in BI/Datawarehouse development. Currently we use Microsoft SQL Server Integration Services as ETL tool. Now we are plan to change or use the same etl. I participiate in an evalution process, where the options are to use Talend or change to Informatica 8.6 or Microsoft SQL Server Integration Services. Are there anyone out there that have had the oportunity to work with (or evaluated) two (or all) of these, and could give me some key points for consideration?

I am having a problem with an SSIS package that I am running with a scheduled task with SQL Agent.  If I run the package manually with SQL Server Information Services it works, but when I automate the task with SQL agent it fails. I am using SQL Server 2008.
I created a VM to replicate my server in production with the same SQL Server version and the task with SQL agent does not fail, but in the other server fails. The server in production is running other tasks with the agent that runs successfully, but this new task fails.
Attached is a sample of the data the SSIS pkg is converting to fill out 4 tables: Employees, OU, EmployeeGroup, and Groups.
I also attached the error that I am getting.
I can figure out why the pkg runs successfully if I run it manually, but fails when is automated to run with the SQL agent.

Any help would be appreciated.
hi I'm taking destination as a lookup reference I taken ID in reference table and nomatch ouput map to destination ,partial cache mode I'm using ,I'm getting duplicates to destination
I am not able to see the MSDB Folder in the SSIS Stored Packages. We are using SQL 2014 64-bit. In the Database Folder Databases\System Databases\MSDB\Tables\System Tables, I see the table dbo.sysssispackages but no table contents. In our SQL 2008 32-bit I can view the contents and all the MSDB tables are available to view and the Stored Packages MSDB is visible . In SQL 2014 64-bit, that is not available.

Do I have a corrupted MSDB in 2014? How is the available and yet no editing or adding data to the table? How do I find out if the MSDB needs to be repaired?

I created the script component and when I tried to reopen it after couple of days I get the below error. See attachment. Is there any other setting that I am missing.  I also found that the ScriptMain.vb file is pointing to a temp directory. Any suggestion.
I have a SQL Server 2012 DTS package that receives data from AS400. Before these three days, everything was going well.

But suddenly when I tried to run these error messages appeared:
1. SSIS Error Code DTS_E_PRIMEOUTPUTFAILED.  The PrimeOutput method on AS400 returned error code 0xC02090F5.  The component returned a failure code when the pipeline engine called PrimeOutput(). The meaning of the failure code is defined by the component, but the error is fatal and the pipeline stopped executing.  There may be error messages posted before this with more information about the failure.
2. The AS400 was unable to process the data. CWBCO1054 - A user-specified time-out occurred while sending or receiving data.

Sometimes when I run it manually, it ran perfectly, but sometimes the error messages appeared. I need to run it several times till the error didn't show up. Different when I ran through batch file (task scheduler/sql job agent), I always got fail.

I already checked the connection by test the credentials, ping and telnet to the server. It's okay.

Any idea why this error is coming up? I appreciate any assistance from everyone :)

Thanks a lot
Is there any way we can compare Name vs (ShortName or LongName)?

Instead, I installed the package manually. While everything looked ok the project will not build complaining that NuGet pacakges are misssing on this computer.

I am using C# in SSIS Script Task and PGP Command Line tool for decrypting symmetric encrypted pgp file.
But this is not working, the command window appears and then hides showing a message:

pgp:decrypt < 3001:input file not found>
:decrypt <3090:operation failed, had parameters>

What is wrong with the code?

System.Diagnostics.Process p = new System.Diagnostics.Process();
                p.StartInfo.WorkingDirectory = @"C:\Program Files\PGP Corporation\PGP Command Line";
                p.StartInfo.FileName = @"C:\Program Files\PGP Corporation\PGP Command Line\pgp";
                string args = @"/c pgp --decrypt ""G:\MYHR\Payroll\PGP\ENCRYPTED\"" --symmetric-passphrase ""Example1"" --overwrite remove --output ""G:\MYHR\Payroll\PGP\DECRYPTED""";
                p.StartInfo.Arguments = " " + args;
                Dts.TaskResult = (int)ScriptResults.Success;

Good Evening All - I am still learning SSRS and wanted to know how I can setup an page so the users can see all the reports they can request?  In the past I would create a form in Access with check boxes for my different reports and have some text boxes, combo boxes, and list boxes for variables to pass along to my report,  I would like to have something like that in SSRS.  Can i do this?  Or do I just create a web page that has all of my reports and a link to the report and then the users just file out the variables at the top of the page.  I would like to customize it more than this.  I do not like that I cannot format or show the control like I would like the to appear.  Seems like a step back.


I'm using an OLE DB Source Editor to extract data from a sql server table  into another sql server table (not on same server).  On one particular tbl the connection takes a long time (validation).  When I run it in a job it errors out with error 'connection lost' or query time out.  It just happens on one table and there's only 3491 rows.
Hello -

I am trying to use SSIS to pull SharePoint lists into SQL to be used elsewhere.  It is SharePoint 2003, but so far the same ideas that work for later versions also work for this version.

I am able to pull down normal SharePoint lists through SSIS.  However, I can't figure out how to pull the hidden User Information List from SharePoint and I need it.

Does anyone know how to do this?

Thank you.
