Data Conversion Transformation question

Posted By:      Posted Date: October 05, 2010    Points: 0   Category :Sql Server
 

Hi Experts,

I used the Data conversion transformation object to convert a data format to the right format {im a newbie}, and i was wondering how it did this without me specify the format i want the results to be in? IF i wanted to convert to convert text to numeric, do i just have to add the Data conversion transformation or do i need to configure it?

Thanks

A simple Data Modeling Question

  

I have a data modeling question that hopefully this fictious example will help explain.  My application is data driven and the classes reflect the tables to a large degree.   In this example my database has two tables:

  • VendorMaster with an int Primary Key of VendorID
  • VendorContact with an int Primary Key of ContactID

The VendorContact table also has a Foreign Key of VendorID in order to associate the contact with a specific Vendor.  In this example a Vendor can only have one contact.

My question is how to represent these two tables in terms of classes.  In my current design I have two classes:

  • VendorMaster
  • VendorContact

In order to represent the relationship between a VendorMaster and VendorContact, my VendorMaster class contains a property called VendorContact.

My questions are about the VendorContact class and how it represents the relationship between a VendorMaster and itself.

Option #1

The VendorContact class should contain an int property of VendorID

Option #2

The VendorContact class should contain a VendorMaster Property

I am not sure which option is the 'best' option to take. My concern is that if I go with option #2 that I would create a cyclical relationship between the VendorMaster and Vendo

Data Conversion - string to datetime help!!!

Data conversion in SSIS

  
I am creating an SSIS package, My source DB is ORACLE and destination is SQL Server 2005 I am moving the contents of a Table AO in Oracle DB to  Table B in SQL Server2005 A specific Column in  "Renvenue " in AO table is of data type NUMBER  , it contains  decimal values like 1040.334, 19191.33, 454545.22 I have a corresponding column 'Rev" in Table B ( in SQLserver DB) of datatype Numeric(18,2)   I have created a SSIS package using Data source Reader, DataConversion , OLEDB Destination  in the dataflow task Everything is working fine, but I am getting incorrect data for example 1040.334, 19191.33, 454545.22   for these values I am getting 1040.00 , 19191.00 , 454545.00 the decimal values are not getting transferred to the destination table. I tried converting the datatype to Numeric {DT_NUMBERIC] 18 -2   and even declimal(DT_DECIMAL] scale 2 but still not getting the decimal values   Can some one tell me where am I going wrong...      

Simple data binding question

  
Newbie binding question here: is it possible to bind a control in XAML to a StaticResource by passing in the key via a data structure? Basically something like this: <TextBlock Text="{Binding ImageKey}" /> <Image Source="{StaticResource ResourceKey={Binding ImageKey}}" /> <-- doesn't work   The TextBlock binding on the first line works correctly, it extracts the key of the StaticResource from my data structure and displays it correctly. What I'm trying to do is get the Image control to bind to the StaticResource with that name (which happens to be a BitmapImage).      

Data Mining Solution Question

  
Hi, I am working for a company that would like to use Aanalysis Services for predictive analytics. My problem is that there are only 40 or so months worth of data. I am wondering if this is enough to even make anything relevant and/or accurate.   So far I've made a time series mining structure, that just uses the booking number as input and predict. I am having a hard time justifying this as they view it as something that could have just been done in excel.   Also I have made a neural network. The company has several (continuous) metrics that they track along with bookings. So I made a neural network to use these inputs to predict the bookings.   This made another problem. The prediction that the neural network makes is different from the next month that that time series predicts and is causing distrust by the potential end users.   I've thought about combining the two models. I could use the output of the neural net and do a natural prediction join of that result into the time series.   Seeking advice, and something that I can do with Analysis Services that could be useful to a company with only a small number of months of data to work with.   -S

SQL server 2008 r2 Data sync question???

  
Sql 2008 r2 data sync, does it involve a db hosted by microsoft or does that involve us hosting the sync functionality locally?  I know we have db's local that need to be sync'd across a wan but does that happen in a db hosted in the ms cloud or does that have to do with a sync functionality that runs locally to keep my db's sync'd?   Thanks, SL

Question about quality of data

  
Hello, Thanks for the help on the last question.  We have looked at several open source offers in the field of data integration. We are now wanting data quality software to complete our data integration program.  Do packages exist to suit our needs? Would you know of innovative data quality programs? Thanks to all!

Can a Synchronous and Asynchronous Transformation in one data flow

  
Hi Guys, Can a Synchronous and Asynchronous exist in one data flow? I mean, in my data flow, i have 5 Synchronous and 1 Asynchronous Transformation in the end all in one flow. The output is not the way it was use to be because im introducing a Asynchronous Transformation at the end for 2 columns. Any suggestions? Thanks,

SSIS Excel Connection Manager Data Type Conversion Issues with SS Agent Job

  
Hi All! I have an issue I've been trying to fix but can't seem to figure it out. I was hoping a kind person would point me in the right direction. :o) I have an SSIS package that uses an excel connection manager source, and I want to run this package through a job scheduled in the SQL server agent. The data types for the excel file fields are 2 (DT_WSTR) and 5 (DT_R8). When I run the package directly through the SSIS package (VS solution) all of the data fields are properly imported into the database table. But...when I run this package through the SQL server agent job, ONLY the string (DT_WSTR) fields in each row are being imported, all of the float fields are imported as NULL. I set the data types for these float fields as "float" in the SQL server import table (data type). Even though the excel source float fields are indicating a type of DT_R8 in the excel connection manager and I set the data types in the SQL server table to "float", I also used the data conversion component and set the type to "float" as a fail-safe. I guess I should add to that the data access mode in the excel connection manager is using a custom code to select only those columns that I needed and to trim rows that I didn't need. Here's my code that I have in the excel source editor: select f1, f2, f3, f5, f6, f7, f8 from [mdo$] where f2 <> 'Rep Name'

It would be of great help to me, if anybody can tell me the work around. Thanks, PreenSheen

Why am I getting an error when executing this: select convert(datetime, '2010-09-12T18:11:48', 120) The message is: "Msg 242, Level 16, State 3, Line 1 The conversion of a char data type to a datetime data type resulted in an out-of-range datetime value." I don’t get the error if I remove “T” from the string. But I need it to work with “T”.

Another basic Data Binding question

  
3 days ago (thanks to Olaf) I was able to make progress with binding a data collection to a DataGrid. Since then I have searched the web in vain for a VB example to enable me to switch off the DataGrid AutoGenerateColumns and enter my own columns and appropriate Paths to the Collection’s properties.   The following code works fine but I can’t work out how to enter my own individual columns etc. Can anyone give me the syntax for an example of one column please?   Why is it so difficult to find VB examples of WPF demos etc? (Nearly everything is in C#.)   I have some experience in Access VB so have picked VB in trying to use WPF. I would be grateful for any links to VB WPF resources.

Basic Data Access question (ObjectDisposedExpection)

  
I am just starting to look at .NET 4.0 and Entity Framework 4 and having trouble finding the best way to achieve something. I'll explain with a quick example:I got my CategoryManager class that looks like this:public sealed class CategoryManager { public System.Data.Objects.ObjectSet<Category> Categories { get { try { StoreEntities storeDb = new StoreEntities();                    using (storeDb)                    {                        return storeDb.Categories;                    } } catch (Exception) { //TODO  throw; } } } public List<string> GetCategoryNames() { try { var categories = from category in this.Categories select category.Name; return categories.ToList();
