Import a flat file with combined data into separate SQL tables using SSIS

I have a flat text file (comma delimited) that is essentially multiple files, each with its own format, combined into one file. The file is coming from an external software vendor so unfortunately we don't have much choice but to work with what we are receiving. Here is an example of what the file could look like: Customer Data CustID,FName,LName,PhNum,Email 12345,John,Smith,,jsmith@gmail.com 12346,Jane,Doe,8001111111,jdoe@hotmail.com Customer Plan CustID,PlanType,PlanName,PlanStart 12345,0,Plan1,01/01/2010 12345,2,PlanVis,01/01/2010 12346,3,PlanLf,04/01/2010 12346,0,Plan1,01/01/2010 Customer Payment CustID,LastPayment,Amount 12345,09/01/2010,100.00 12346,05/01/2010,50.00 There is an empty line between each 'section' of data. I adapted a VB script I found online that can take the incoming file and save off each section as its own file so that each one can be separately imported, but this seems inefficient. I'm really new to SSIS in general, but it seems like it shouldn't be that difficult to take the data, split it where there is an empty line, and then import each section into the appropriate SQL table. Any ideas would be most welcome. Thanks!  

Create Excel file dynamically in SSIS package and fill it by resultset data returned by Stored proce


Hello Every One,

SSIS: Error in the package when the data in the flat file source is modified


Hi All,

I have a package which loads data from a flat file source to an OLEDB destination, which is executed successfully and data is loaded perfectly.

But later when the data in the flat file source is modified i.e. if an extra column gets added to the text file, the package is throwing an error because it is unable to detect the extra added column.

How can i avoid this error??? I need my package to execute successfully ignoring the changes(added columns) happened in the flat file source.

Please provide me wth your suggestions and solutions....

Thanks in Advance!!

Import Excel file with Data Connection into SSIS


I have got an Excel spreadsheet with a Data Connection that I want to import into SSIS. The problem is that the Data Connection does not seem to run at the time the file is imported, so it only calls "old" data.

How can I set SSIS up to run the Data Connection first, or is there something I need to change in my Excel spreadsheet setup?

When a person opens the Excel file normally, they first need to "Enable" the Data Connection in the Security Settings. Once that is done the data will update immediately. I wonder if that is something I somehow need to change to make it work in SSIS?

Problems running a bat file within a SSIS package

I have a ssis package which has 2 tasks, first it builds an excel sheet with data on the server from where I am running the ssis pkg and the second task (a sql process task), runs a bat. the bat file that basically copies the  excel sheet created from the first step to another server. Problem is that the ssis pkg runs succesful when i run it from BIDS, bust when I run is as ajon, it gets hung. It completes the first step, it is the sescond step that is get hung. I noticed that when i run from BIDs, it does come up with a window open file - security warning and says the publisher could not be verified, are you sure you want to run this software. why does it do that ??? the file I am asking to run is a .bat file. it should automatically use the cmd.exe app to run the bat file. Please help !!!   Thanks in advance.

SSIS multiple data flows accessing the same raw file

I have multiple data flow tasks accessing the same raw file at virtually the same time.  I would like to know if the data flow tasks lock the raw file during read?  Can multiple data flow tasks read the same raw file at the same time.  I'm currently developing with a very small data set, but I would like to know if I should be concerned with the possibility of the data flow tasks competing for access to the same raw file. Thanks.

Read Binary Data which is nothing but a Zip file and unzip through SSIS 2005 SP2

Hi ALL, I need some help in developing a task. I have a source database which is Oracle and it has a ZIP file stored inside the database in Binary format. When I move this data into the sql server 2005 database I get the data as binary data. Now the task begins with SSIS, I need to read the binary data which gives us a zip file and then unzip this zip file and read the XML data which is present inside the Zip file. I beleive some one might have already developed this task can you share the solution with us. Note: As this has to be moved into production I dont have permission to use third party tools like Cozy roc or install winrar.exe and simpy calling this exe from the execute process task in SSIS.  Raju

if ssis package writes to excel file that might be open by a user

I have written a package that writes to an excel file to a network folder. Eventually this package will run as a job. What is the best way to handle the situation where someone opens the file or inadvertantly leaving it open while the package is running and and stop the package.? No one needs to modify or write anything to this file after it is finished

SSIS package - change Web reference's addres from Configuration file?

Greetings. The SSIS packages provide very nice options to configure them from an XML file, which allows to change credentials, database names etc w/o editing the package. This lets me, say, transfer package from one server to another or from test to production w/o any hassle - just changing the xml. Problem is, i need to acces a web service in my package, and built-in SSIS web service task is useless and just SUCKS. It fails to work even with miscrosoft's own sharepoint web service. So, i have to use scripting task. And scripting task uses "web reference" to access web services, which in turn gives no way to change it's url.  So, if i want to test and then move to production, i'll have to edit my package to change the web reference url from "testserver:5123/mywebservice" to "productionserver:81/webservices/mywebservice". And then change it again to test it again. Etc. Is there a solution to this? A way to programmatically change web reference's url from inside scripting task?
