  • Verify a connection before using it [SSIS]

    Just recently I've inherited some SSIS packages that were in dire need of fixing however, as is often the case, most of my battles were with connection string configurations. It always baffles me when I see packages that don't log information that would be useful for debugging purposes and when its me that has to debug those packages I tend to ...

  • Dataflow mechanics [SSIS]

    Once upon a time I blogged at http://consultingblogs.emc.com/jamiethomson but that ended in August 2009 when I left EMC. There is a lot of (arguably) valuable content over there however certain events in the past leave me concerned that that content is not well cared for and I don't have any confidence that it will still exist in the long ...

  • SSIS: Script component debugging comes to SQL Server Integration Services 2012

    One of the biggest complaints I see developers raising about SSIS since it was released in 2005 is that the only way to debug Script Components is the distinctly simplistic and old fashioned method of sticking up message boxes - there is no way to step through the code as it executes (something that Microsoft developers have ...

  • SSIS Reporting Pack v0.2 now available

    In December 2010 I announced in a blog post Introducing SSIS Reporting Pack for SQL Server code-named Denali that I planned to provide a series of reports that visualised information held in the SSIS Catalog in SQL Server Denali – I called these reports the SSIS Reporting Pack. At that time SSIS Reporting Pack was a precursor to what I really ...

  • Report Authoring on the SSIS Catalog [link]

    Just a short post here to let you know that the SQL Server Integration Services (SSIS) product team recently invited me to contribute a blog post about authoring reports for SSIS in Denali for their team blog. I was of course only too happy to accept and yesterday that blog post was published at Report Authoring on the SSIS Catalog, so if you are ...

  • SSIS Logging in Denali

    In my blog post SSIS Server, Catalogs, Environments & Environment Variables in SSIS in Denali from November 2010 I alluded to forthcoming enhancements in the logging infrastructure when I said: One final note on logging. The fairly limited information that gets captured in the current CTP is not the same as what will be in the product upon ...

  • Self Modifying Packages in SSIS?

    Many visitors to the SSIS forum ask if it is possible to modify an executing package using a Script Task within that package; this was a fairly common scenario in the predecessor Data Transformation Services (DTS) so its not surprising that people ask this. The simple answer is “no” and in days of yore I would direct people to a blog post written ...

  • SSIS enhancements in Denali CTP3

    The third Community Technology Preview (CTP3) of SQL Server code-named Denali is upon us and, although you would never guess from the official announcement, there is a whole raft of enhancements to SQL Server Integration Services (SSIS) and in this blog post I will take you on a tour of some of them. I must stress that nothing here is finalised ...

  • Why is there no CROSS JOIN component in SSIS?

    I saw an interesting question on the SSIS MSDN forum yesterday where someone was asking how to do a cartesian product (i.e. a CROSS JOIN) in a SQL Server Integration Services (SSIS) dataflow. Links were provided to various articles that cover this (see Performing a Cross Join (Cartesian Product) in SSIS which explains how you can fool the Merge ...
