How to merge separate control flows?

Posted By:      Posted Date: August 28, 2010    Points: 0   Category :Sql Server
Howdy, This seems a simple question but I can't find a clear answer anywhere... I have an SSIS package that processes flat data files, one-by-one, in a loop, until there are no more files. Before proceeding, I have to make sure the specified file exists. So I create a Script Task that checks for the file. File Exists = Task "Success" else Task "Fail". I then branch from that task to either proceed with the Data Flow task, OR else to log a failure message. IN EITHER CASE, I need to eventually return to the same cleanup Task in order to prepare for the next file. However, if the failure pathway flows into the Cleanup task, then the Success pathway always terminates just before, and does not execute the Cleanup Task. How can I ensure that two mutually exclusive pathways can return to the same Task? Thanks much!

Need replication architecture assistance (near-real time merge repl across 2 separate companies and


I've read several different replication scenarios and technologies native to SQL Server (we are talking about SQL Server 2005) but have some questions.

I have a project to integrate/replicate two network-separated SQL Server 2005 databases.  Each database resides in a physically separate location at different companies.  They will not have a shared network environment and will not allow direct connection between the two databases.

We need to keep each database in sync as far as customer records.  Near real time is preferable.  There is not master.  One could add/delete/modify a customer record in one database and it needs to reflect in the other database. 


The closest we could get for connectivity architecture looks like this:

1.  Each database is on the separate internal networks for each company.

2.  Each organization HAS agreed to setup a DMZ on their sides specifically for this exchange.  Each respective DMZ will be able to communicate with their own internal SQL Server and have a fiber connect directly connecting each organization's dmz.

SO.... is there a good way to replicate from InternalSQL_1 - DMZ1 - DMZ2 - InternalSQL_2 near real time?

What would your recommendation be?  Pretty sure I'd setup both internal InternalSQL as Pub/Sub/Dist but I'm solici

Control.Invoke must be used to interact with controls created on a separate thread.


I am making a stock taking application in a smart device projec tin Visual Studio 2010. What i want to do is create a thread for when i want to update the database(csv file) and use a status control to show the user what is happening ("connecting", "saved", "error") etc.


However when i try to call a function from within my save method whcih is running on a thread i get a Control.Invoke must be used to interact with controls created on a separate thread error at runtime.

Adding Dynamic Rows in ASP.NET GridView Control with TextBoxes and with Delete functionality

In my previous examples, I have demonstrated on how to add dynamic rows in GridView control with TextBoxes and how to save the values into the database. Now, seems that most of the developers are asking if how to add a delete functionality with it. So in this example, I'm going to show on how to delete a certain row in the dynamic GridView with TextBoxes.

Accessing the different controls inside a GridView control

how we can access a particular control which resides inside a GridView control. In this article I will show you how you can access different controls inside a GridView control. We will see how we can access a TextBox control, a DropDownList control and a ListBox control. If you are working with ASP.NET 1.X then you might want to check out my article Accessing Different Controls Inside a DataGrid.

In-Depth look at the GridView Control

In the last article we looked at few of the new controls available in Asp.net 2.0. We also talked about Grid View Control which has replaced the Asp.net 1.1 DataGrid control for good. In this article we will examine more features of the Grid View control. In this article we will see some of the common operations that can be performed using the GridView control. Apart from these operations there are many more functions that can be performed on the control and which we will see in the later articles

ASP.NET repeater control - databind with style

even used the inline editing features, which I at the time thought was the coolest way possible to write ASP.NET code ( I managed to write code to hide all other rows and only show the current one - the row being edited). With a nice looking EditTemplate it looked indeed very slick but it really turned into giant and hard to manage code behind files.

Creating Paging for a Repeater Control

A common question is "How do I implement paging within a Repeater?" Although the beauty of the Repeater control is its flexibility, you're on your own for building most functions. ASP.NET 2.0 has included some new controls that provide paging, as does the DataGrid in ASP.NET 1.1. However, this tip shows you how to roll your own paging for a simple data viewer.

Using TemplateFields in the GridView Control

The GridView is composed of a set of fields that indicate what properties from the DataSource are to be included in the rendered output along with how the data will be displayed. The simplest field type is the BoundField, which displays a data value as text. Other field types display the data using alternate HTML elements. The CheckBoxField, for example, renders as a checkbox whose checked state depends on the value of a specified data field; the ImageField renders an image whose image source is based upon a specified data field. Hyperlinks and buttons whose state depends on an underlying data field value can be rendered using the HyperLinkField and ButtonField field types.

Easily manipulate data with the GridView control in ASP.NET 2.0

Last week, I introduced ASP.NET 2.0's GridView data control and covered the basics of using it. This week, I go a step further by going into the details of working with the data contained in the control. This includes viewing, editing, and deleting data. Thankfully, the GridView control makes it easy to utilize these features. Before diving into these topics, I begin with an examination of the different field types supported by the GridView control.

Choosing Between a User Control or Web Part for SharePoint

SharePoint will only display Web Parts on a page. However, there are publicly available shims that allow you to write user controls and have them be displayed as a Web Part. From SharePoint's point of view, the shim is a Web Part. From the point of view of the user control, the shim is simply a control in .NET that is including the user control

ASP.NET DropDownList Web Control, Part 1

Anybody with much experience in ASP has written an include file function for populating the contents of a SELECT dropdown list with entries from a database. Some of the more advanced users have even gone so far as to add caching to their function to reduce database hits for these rarely changing menu options. Naturally, these same techniques are going to be used with ASP.NET, but with a new programming object model. ASP.NET provides a web control, the DropDownList, which can be used for the same purposes as our custom built SELECT tag from Classic ASP.
