Package Strategy Question

Posted By:      Posted Date: August 31, 2010    Points: 0   Category :Sql Server
I am developing a rather large ETL solution using SSIS.  So far I have been building everything inside a single package but it occurred to me that perhaps I ought to check and see if that is wise.  Are there performance gains or scale reasons to split an ETL into multiple packages and then have a master package that calls each one and keeps them in sync?  I assume building everything in one package is OK? Thanks in advance... - Charles

Text Search Strategy Question for the SSIS Gurus...

BACKGROUND: As I have mentioned in some of my other posts I am using SSIS 2005 to replace an existing MS Access 2003 / VBA based ETL engine which I developed some years back.   Part of my existing Access-based ETL performs a text search of the source records and I am now attempting to replicate that functionality in SSIS (replicate in terms of the end-result and not necessarily the methods used to get to that end result).  I have an idea of how I plan to go about this but since am relatively new to SSIS so would greatly appreciate the feedback of those more experienced... DETAILED DESCRIPTION: In the source (Sybase ASE15) database, there is an "object" table (not the actual table name but for illustrative purposes it will suffice).  Within the object table there is a "description" column which is a char(60) datatype.  The description column simply represents a description of the object as defined by the source system end-user. For my ETL solution I allow the ETL administrator to define one or many (1...n) key words or phrases which represent search criteria.  These search criteria are stored in a reference table in my target SQL Server 2005 database (the same database to which my ETL will transform results and store them).  My objective, is as follows:  For each of the 1...n search criteria defined, try and find th

Web Site to Web Application Question


I've been building web sites and for my next project I will be creating a web application.  I use a 'BasePage' class in all my projects but, since web applications do not contain the 'App_Code' folder, what is the best place/practice for the 'BasePage' class?



connection string question from a newbie


when publishing  in the webmatrix dialogue it asks for "destination connection string" for my "database.mdf"

I was not sure what it was so I pasted this from my web.config file :

Data Source=.\SQLEXPRESS;AttachDbFilename=|DataDirectory|\database.mdf;Integrated Security=True;User Instance=True

it all published ok, but wont run, so I guess it has somthing to do with this connection string or some kind of configuration issue.

My question is this, What should go in the field for "Destination connection string"

Security Question Answer Retrieval


I know there is a method built in for retrieving the encrypted password, but how do I retrieve the encrypted security answer?

What I want to do is have a member profile update screen that the end user can update their password and security question and answer. However, when they get to this page, I want to already be showing the security question (the easy part) and its answer (the not so easy part).

I have updated web.config with passwordFormat=Encrypted and have added a machineKey with the generator (forgot the link, but located on eggheadcafe somewhere).

I haven't done ANYTHING yet, since I already have a user store with hashed information. I wanted to get some functionality done before publishing, wiping the store and recreating users (only a couple developers).


Very Basic Question - Error message running first page


Hi Everyone,

I am running Windows 7 and I have gone into Control Panel and activated all of the IIS Functions.

The web application I am running was downloaded from the net (and has worked on other machines previously).  Once I downloaded it, I moved it into C:/inetpub/wwwroot/code/main.asp

I am a bit of a novice at this!  But I am hoping someone can point me in the right direction!


I get the following error when I try and run the web application through IE:

"An error occurred on the server when processing the URL. Please contact the system administrator. If you are the system administrator please click here to find out more about this error."

(When i click the "click here" button it just goes to the IIS site).


Appreciate any help I can get!




C#, LINQ: (List<>) Question???


Hi Everyone,

I have a strange problem:


There is an entity (Table) called "Filters" in my .edmx which has all my tables and stuff in it (to use it for LINQ queries)

I have created a class called "CustomFilters" which inherits "Filters". So now my cutom class has all the properties of the original "Filters" class (table) and 1 more additional property that i wanted which is a List of "CustomFilters":

List<CustomFilters> children = new List<CustomFilters>();

Now i get all my records into:

List<CustomFilters> theOriginalList = new List<CustomFilters>();

NOTE: first all records are tken into a List<Filters> and then these are added into List<CustomFilters> where List<CustomFilters> for children of that record is added, and then children of the child records, and so on......

so now, every record is an instance of CustomFilters which has a property named "children" which is a list again; and each child again has instanaces of "CustomFilters", and each instance again has children...and on and on and on.....

(basiacally its a data source for a treeview in my silverlight control)

every thing is good and working as expected.


linqdatasource parameters question



I'm currently getting to know the linqdatasource control. What would happen if several WHERE parameters are added to the linqdatasource control declaritively in the aspx page but no WHERE clause is defined? 

1. is there any issue with setting up multiple WHERE parameters in the aspx markup for linqdatasource but then deciding which ones actually get used at runtime by setting the actual WHERE clause at run time? Would the unused parameters simply be ignored and cause no issues?

2. when you need to modify WHERE clause or WHERE parameters at runtime do you need to do so in an event handler? such as linqdatasource.selecting?
I see from the above link it is possible, but is that the standard way to handle controlling filtering in code behind for linqdatasource?

2b. if you use an event such as linqdatasource.selecting to add where parameters and/or modify the where clause in code will that also break the builtin sorting and paging support of the linqdatasource with a gridview? 

Problems posting to a package


Hey Y'all

I'm currently creating a program that accesses a mysql package to add data to a few tables.  I'm currently getting an error that says  "

ORA-01403: no data found
ORA-06512: at "JESSE.PKG_WORKPLAN", line 42
ORA-06512: at "JESSE.PKG_WORKPLAN", line 177
ORA-06512: at line 1


These lines are


and 177:add_team_members(V_PROJECT_ID, V_START_DATE, v_FISC_YEAR, V_MEMBERS ,V_NUM_MEMBERS,'add');

Checking these variables in my asp.net page they are all receiving parameters.

Is there a  way to see what the database is actually receiving from the asp.net page?

Or is there another thing to be looking at?

SMTP not working if I use web deployment package to deploy my app.


Hi all

I use msdeploy to install my web app. deployment package. everything about web app works, but find out email was not working.

I checked telnet smtp is running.

I debug the project, and it was sending out email too.

So my solution was upload the whole project (not complied) to wwwroot, and email works too. Thats why I assume the deployment cause the problem.

at last, I also tried to copy the web deployment web.config to replace the project's web.config, and the email also work, so it wasn't the web.config problem.

Could anyone tell me whats going on?

Client ID basic question


Hi guys,

Is there any problem to use MANUALLY, within a Javascript, the client ID code?

Like that  ctl00_ContentPlaceHolderConteudo_pgtoiframe


I have one iFrame that need to access div style located in the parent page. So I've done that using manually the clientID code. The code works perfectly and It's still working fine right now.

Will I get errors or problems in the future using it in that manner????

Thank you
