Foreach Loop Container.ForEachEnumerator.Properties[FileSpec] Exception -This occurs when an attempt

Posted By:      Posted Date: September 03, 2010    Points: 0   Category :Sql Server
I run into the following 2 exceptions when I execute a package on SQL Server 2005 64 bit machine. The package fails when SQL Server version is 9.0.3310 which is a production box. I have tested it on 3 others development boxes with SQL version 9.0.1399, 9.0.3315 & 9.0.4053 and the package executes fine. I am unable to make a determination if this issue is related to SQL versions or a bug in the package design. I would like to understand the exception better before I request an SP3 & patches installed to upgrade it to version 9.0.4053 on the production box. I have scheduled jobs to run these packages and we are trying to locate Excel files on a drive using For Each Loop Enumerator. The packages are configured to use configuration files. Please note the destination directory does have the Excel files we are looking for.

ForEach Loop Container Configuration Question

So here is my question/situation. I have a table that contains a list of all of our servers/instances for my organization. I have a script that I'd like to execute against all of the servers in that list and I was thinking that I should be able to use this container to pull the name/instance from the table, execute the script, store the results in a local table. However, I'm not quite sure on how to attack this meaning not sure which configuration that I would need to use to get me going down the right direction. I've looked around and found alot of documentation on how to enumerate multiple files and folders, but nothing really for what I'm trying to do. Any help or direction would be greatly appreciated.Big Ern

SSIS 2005 - Foreach loop container - Stopping the loop after processing X number of file?

I need to stop the Foreach loop container from processing more files in the folder than desired. Scenario:  If I only want 1 files processed, i need to stop the loop after it finds 1 file.  No matter what the contraints or tests or variables I set, the loop processes all the files in the folder.  This is bad because I need the value of the 1st mapped variable and not the last one it finds. I have tried counting records and setting variables used in the contraints but to no avail  Nothing seems to stop the loop. Please advise

How to go to next iteration of ForEach Loop container on task failure

I'm using a ForEach Loop container to iterate through a set of files and import/validate the data.  Within each loop, the first thing that happens is that I fill a variable from a table and then use a script task to make sure that the rest of the package should be run for this particular file.  If it should continue, I set Dts.TaskResult = Dts.Results.Success, and if it shouldn't, I set it to Dts.Results.Failure.  My question is, how do I get it to exit the current iteration of the loop and continue to the next iteration?  The way it is now, the package just stops completely.  I set the FailPackageOnFailure property to False for the script task, but that doesn't make a difference.  I also tried pointing a failure precedence contstraint bacl to the loop container, but that's not allowed.  How can I make it just continue in the loop?   Thanks.

Using Foreach loop Container in SSIS 2005 package and scheduling the package using SQL job on 64-bit

I've an SSIS package 2005 which uses a for each loop container, this package runs fine when I run it on the local machine . My server is 64 bit SQL 2005 and I 've successfully deployed my package on the server both to the File system and SQL server. I've also set Run64bitruntime to false in my pacakge. Now I need schedule the package using SQL job. Since Microsoft Jet Provider 4.0 is not available for 64 bit, I had to write script to schedule the package. Here is my script. declare   @ssisstr varchar(8000) declare @returncode int set   @ssisstr = 'dtexec /sq Package1 /DE 123' EXEC   @returncode = xp_cmdshell @ssisstr select   @returncode I'm getting the following error when I execute the job. Could not load package "Package1" because of error 0xC0010014. Description: 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. I'm getting the same error if I run this from commandline. Any help would be really appreciated. Thanks in advance. PARC

Could not set a datasource to Schema Rowset Enumerator in Foreach Loop Container



Everytime I want set a datasource (also if I create a new one with an click on the drop down) I got the following error message from the container.


TITLE: For each schema rowset

The new connection, LocalHost.ReportServer, is not an OLE DB connection so it can not be used by the schema rowset enumerator and, therefore, will not be added to the connections list.

But if I generate a OLE DB connection manually it does not appear in the dropdown list of the container. Does anybody know what I have to do in that case?

Thanks, Nils

Foreach Loop Container - Excel



I´ve seen a few posts on this topic but I still can´t get my simple example to work. What I want to do is to loop thru all Excel files in a folder and put some of the data in my db. It works fine without the Foreach loop container. This is what I´ve done. First, I´m working on a Windows Server 2008r2 and against a SQL Server 2008r2. The Excel files are Excel 2007.

1) I created a new Integration Services Project.

2) I added a Data flow task to the Control flow tab.

3) I added two connection managers. One for the Excel file source and one for the destination db.

4) I added an Excel Source and a SQL Server destination and connected them. It works fine, I can preview the columns and the mapping is done correct.

When I run it, the db is populated.

5) This is where it fails. I added a Foreach Loop Container and drag the Data flow task into it. In the collection tab I choose Foreach file enumerator and browse to the folder.

5) Under the variable mapping tab I add a variable called FileName under the scope User and inddex 0.

6) Then I flipped to properties for the Excel Connection manager and enter the expression setting. I added a connection property with this expression "Provider=Microsoft.Jet.OLEDB.4.0;Data Source=" + @[User::FileName] + ";Extended Properties=\"E

Foreach Loop Container & File System Task to copy files from target server to source server


A one-off shot at using, SSIS, I appear to be missing something. 

From what I have read here, the Foreach Loop Container in which a File System Task has been placed is how one copies files contained in a source server folder to a folder on a target server.  I have defined Source and Destination pkg variables using UNC \\servername\aharedfolder and a FileName variable that is empty.  My impression is that this is suppose to iterate through and copies all files in the source folder to the target.  I only get the first file copied.

In the FLC Collection section  I am using the Foreach File Enumerator under which I have the Folder as \\servername\sharedfolder and files as *.* .  I am not using Expressions.  The Variables Mapping reference my FileName variable.

In the FST, I both path variables set to True and reference the destination and source variables described above.  Operation is Copy File.

I appears that I need to pass a list of the source folder file names to the FileName variable, rather than some built-in logic grabbing a files in the source folder.  Is a passed filename list what I am missing?

Error on 23rd Loop of Foreach

Hi, I have a MAster Package callling 8 Dimension Package and 5 fact table packages. Fact table Packages are in for eachloop. They have to loop 24 times during FirstRun Each fact table load more than 500000 rows in every loop, and out of 5, two package loads more than million rows in every loop. I got the following error message when the package was looping for the 23rd time. One of the five Fact table package failed with following error DTS primeoutput failed returned error code 0xC02020C4 SSIS Error Code DTS_E_PRIMEOUTPUTFAILED. The PrimeOutput method on component "Staging Table "(1) returned error code 0xC02020C4. 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. After when I ran package explicitly, it ran well Please help on what to be done to avoid this error and what does this error mean?.

Exception occurs when checking in document with missing required fields

I have a document library with required fields. When the user uploads a document and closes the Properties window without entering the required fields, the document is still uploaded, but is left checked out. If the user subsequently attempts to check in the document without first editing the properties to supply values for those required fields, an exception is thrown and the user sees the following: Description: An application error occurred on the server. The current custom error settings for this application prevent the details of the application error from being viewed. The Event Log shows the following: Exception message: You must fill out all required properties before checking in this document. Request path: /_layouts/checkin.aspx Stack trace: at Microsoft.SharePoint.ApplicationPages.Checkin.OnLoad(EventArgs e) ... I would like to trap this error and present it to the user or somehow prevent the check-in event from getting far enough to cause this exception. I have tried coding something like this: public override void ItemCheckingIn(SPItemEventProperties properties) {     try     {         base.ItemCheckingIn(properties);     }     catch (SPException ex)     {         properties.Cancel = true;      &n

C# Allowing user to select variables to use in a foreach loop

Hi guys, First project, first post. My app builds webpages and personalises the content by running a foreach loop through rows in a dataset. My original web page build was hardcoded and works fine. I want to take this one stage further and allow users to paste their own html into a text box and use button controls to insert values from the dataset arrays.  Doing this however leads to the app writing the string verbatim. Some examples at this point might help:  Original code here System.IO.StreamWriter objWriter; objWriter = new System.IO.StreamWriter(webpage);                     objWriter.WriteLine("<!DOCTYPE HTML PUBLIC '-//W3C//DTD HTML 4.01 Transitional//EN' 'http://www.w3.org/TR/html4/loose.dtd'>"); objWriter.WriteLine("<head>"); objWriter.WriteLine("<title>" + row.ItemArray.GetValue(0).ToString() + "'s very own webpage" + "</title>";); objWriter.WriteLine("<meta http-equiv='Content-Type' content='text/html; charset=iso-8859-1'>"); objWriter.WriteLine(""); objWriter.WriteLine("</head>"); objWriter.WriteLine("<body>"); objWriter.WriteLine("<h1>Well hello there " + row.ItemArray.GetValue(5).ToStri

foreach loop and SqlDataAdapter to update WHERE UserId = UserId ?


I'm trying to figure out how to update multiple rows in my Directory table, when a user changes their Street Number or Street Name in their profile.  They can add multiple users to a directory and each user they add to the directory has this primary users UserId in it. So if the primary user changes their address, I want it to update the address for all the users they listed in the directory as well. I'm adding this to the On_Click in the Code Behind, so when they click to update their profile, it fires this function as well.

This code may be way off, but here's what I have right now:

                //Update directory user addresses for this account, if profile address has changed
                if ((currentStreetNumber != creatingStreetNumber) || (currentStreetName != creatingStreetName))
                    string myDirectoryConnection = WebConfigurationManager.ConnectionStrings["ConnectionString"].ConnectionString;
                    SqlDataAdapter cmd2 = new SqlDataAdapter("Update Directory SET [StreetNumber] = @StreetNumber, [StreetName = @StreetName] WHERE [UserId] = @UserId", myDirectoryConnection);
                    cmd2.UpdateCommand.Parameters.Add("@UserId", currentUserId.ToString());
