SQL 2008 R2 Custom Data Connection Issue with Data Flow - Data Sources

Posted By:      Posted Date: September 20, 2010    Points: 0   Category :Sql Server

I have a custom data connection that we used in SQL 2005 to connect to a non-standard source to pull data.  We are in the process of upgrading to SQL 2008 R2 and I am running into an issue that hopefully someone can help me with. 

I have upgraded my custom connection code for SQL 2008 R2.  I can set up a connection using the custom code inside of an SSIS package.  However, when I go to a data flow task and try to select a connection for a data source object, OLEDB or ADO.Net data sources, my connection is not available.  If I select new on the connection option, my connection type is not available.  To get around this in SQL 2005 I used the data reader source.  The data reader source is not available in SQL 2008 R2.  So I am stuck. 

My custom connection is implemented as an IDBConnection.

How to detect that a Data Flow Task has failed (from inside a custom componet)

Hi, in the PostExecute Method of a custom component i would like to check if the Data Flow Task has been failed. Is that possible? Also it would be great to be able to check if this custom component already got all data or has been marked as "green".  Thanks, Dennis

Custom SSIS Data Flow Component Not Showing in Toolbox or GAC

Hello - I have created a very simple data flow component for SSIS (Actually, I am following this example:  http://www.microsoft.com/downloads/details.aspx?familyid=1C2A7DD2-3EC3-4641-9407-A5A337BEA7D3&displaylang=en).  However, when I register the DLL to the GAC, I am unable to find the assembly in C:\Windows\Assembly - even though the GACUTIL says "Assembly Registered Successfully".  Furthermore, after copying the DLL to the PipelineComponents folder for SSIS (C:\Program Files (x86)\Microsoft SQL Server\100\DTS\PipelineComponents), it does not show in the "Choose Items . . ." dialog box of SSIS.   I am running SQL Server 2008 Dev edition, Visual Studio 2010 with .NET 4.0, and Windows 7 Enterprise 64-bit edition.  Any assistance/thoughts would be appreciated. Thanks!

OLE DB Destination issue in ForEach Data Flow

Has anyone encountered the following problem:I have a ForEach container with a single task in it - a Data Flow. The Data Flow uses a Source Script transformation to read each file and writes out to several output streams, each of which is connected to a OLE DB Destination.The ForEach executes for each file (in my example 3 times) but only the data from the last execution is in the DB tables.This from is my output window:SSIS package "PIF.dtsx" starting.Information: 0x4004300A at ETL Audit, DTS.Pipeline: Validation phase is beginning.Information: 0x4004300A at Load V6 Policy, DTS.Pipeline: Validation phase is beginning.Information: 0x40043006 at Load V6 Policy, DTS.Pipeline: Prepare for Execute phase is beginning.Information: 0x40043007 at Load V6 Policy, DTS.Pipeline: Pre-Execute phase is beginning.Information: 0x4004300C at Load V6 Policy, DTS.Pipeline: Execute phase is beginning.Information: 0x402090DF at Load V6 Policy, stg_RiskLocation [5449]: The final commit for the data insertion has started.Information: 0x402090DF at Load V6 Policy, stg_PDMRFeed [5277]: The final commit for the data insertion has started.Information: 0x402090DF at Load V6 Policy, stg_Policy [5208]: The final commit for the data insertion has started.Information: 0x402090E0 at Load V6 Policy, stg_RiskLocation [5449]: The final commit for the data insertion has ended.Information: 0x402090DF at Load V6 Pol

External Lists and Infopath forms issue with Secondary Data Sources

I've followed this tutorial for creating and customising forms for external data (http://blogs.msdn.com/infopath/archive/2010/03/11/customize-an-external-list-form-in-infopath-2010.aspx).  The only difference being that my seconday data source is not an XML file (I've tried database connection and existing sharepoint lists both internal and external) When running the design checker I get the message "Additional Data connections not supported" and my form won't publish.  Any ideas?

Shared Data Sources permissions issue


I have created a Shared Data source in my Report Manager, granted my network account all the permissions to the connection. I build my report in Report Builder 2.0 (I have access to the necessary tables and views etc). I save my report to the report server. I can run the report through Report Manager, however, I can't run the report through Report Builder 2.0. I get the error:

The permissions granted to user 'domain\myusername' are insufficient for performing this operation. (rsAccessDenied)

The odd thing is, if I create a report with an embedded data source, I can run it through Report Builder 2.0 until I save it to the server. Then I can only run it on the server (same as the Shared Data source), and not through Report Builder 2.0

Anyone have any ideas?

Connection String issue: Keyword not supported: 'data source'.


I have three connection strings for my web application (ASP.Net) as MVC2 provides by default.

Bar the locations and the names, the syntax is identical, but in the second connection string, it keeps returning "Keyword not supported: 'data source'." EVEN THOUGH IT'S IDENTICAL. D:

Please help! I've tried changing the Syntax to include a "Metadata" tag, still didn't work!

Custom List Form web part connection to data view


We have a sharpoint site to manage "projects".    That site includes a document library.  The documents uploaded to the library are categorised based on the project they belong to.

We are trying to implement a custom list form for editing a project record that does one of the following:

1. When the edit form is loaded for a particular projects record that edit form also shows a list of relevant documents.


2. Include a button or link on the edit form to another page that lists only the documents for the current project.

We thought this would be easy to do using web part connections.  If we click on the custom list form it gives us the option to setup a web part connection.  However, if you follow this wizard through and get to the stage of selecting columns to link, there are no columns listed for either the custom list form or for the target dataview.  This is the case whether the target data view is on the same page, ie in case of option 1 or on a different page as in case of option 2.

Could someone advise us how we could either get the web part connections between the custom list form and other dataviews to work or how we could hyperlink to a dataview and pass the id of the record currently being edited to that dataview as a filter?

We are using Sharepoint Designer so would appreciate any suggestions base

Excel Services data connection issue. Single environment, none authentication


I really need someone's help to configure my SharePoint 2007/ Excel services connectioon to SSAS 2008. It surely cannot be that complicated???

MOSS on server 1
SSAS 2008 cube on server 1
Trusted data provider created (OLE DB, MSOLAP.4)
Trusted data connection library created
Trusted File location created - children trusted, allow external data = "Trusted data connection libraries and embedded"

I use Excel and create a new .odc file with athenticated type = NONE and save it to the Trusted data connection library. Using the odc I open a new workbook. I firstly get a security warning saying that "MS Office has identified a potential security concern. Data connections have been blocked. If you choose to enable data connections..."

I click on Enable, and now have access to my cube. I create a pivit table and chart and publish the workbook back to a child folder in the Trusted File location. All okay so far!!

Now I open the new workbook, and as soon as I try and interact with it, I get the dreaded error "Unable to retrieve external data for the following connections:

Custom Lookup function not connecting to data sources?


Hi folks,

I am trying to run the following function (which works in Visual Studio just fine) but it appears SSRS can't access data in the same way as Visual Studio?  There are extra permissions needed - can anyone point me in the right direction?
(I am basically trying to emulate the DLookup function from Access for a migration we are planning.)

Here's the error:

Using Conditional Split data Transfer in SSIS 2008

This article uses the Integration Services Conditional Split Data Transformation element to filter and transfer data from a set of flat text files to SQL Server database table. The concept can be easily extended to apply to any other source or destination such as Microsoft Excel. This scenario is useful in creating denormalized database tables in a reporting and analysis situation.

Dynamic WPF: Create Flexible UIs With Flow Documents And Data Binding


Flow documents offer enormous flexibility in arranging text layout and pagination, but they don't support data binding, so you can't dynamically change content. Here we build a component to solve that problem.
