  • Enforce SSIS naming conventions using BI-xPress

    A long long long time ago (in 2006 in fact) I published a blog post entitled Suggested Best Practises and naming conventions in which I suggested a bunch of acronyms that folks could use to prefix object names in their SSIS packages, thus allowing easier identification of those objects in log records, here is a sample of some of those suggestions: ...

  • SSISReportingPack with usp_ssiscatalog v1.1 available – first release with integrated installer

    Since December 2010 I have been maintaining a suite of reports that can be used atop the SSIS Catalog in SSIS 2012, I called it the “SSIS Reporting Pack”. While building those reports I realised that there was also a need to make it easier to issue common but ad-hoc queries against the SSIS Catalog and that realisation gave rise to a stored ...

  • SSIS gotcha – Regional Settings can affect your expressions

    I recently stumbled across a nuance of the SSIS expression language which, when you think about, kinda make sense – but it does help to be aware of it. Its concerned with casting of datetime values using the SSIS expression language Take the following expression: (DT_WSTR,30) @[System::ContainerStartTime] That expression casts a datetime ...

  • sp_ssiscatalog v1.0.2.0 now available for download [SSIS]

    v1.0.2.0 – what’s in it? Things have been a bit quiet on the sp_ssiscatalog front since I last blogged about it three months ago in December 2012. Rest-assured development continues apace however and today I’m making available a minor update, v1.0.2.0 which is now available for download from Codeplex. For those that don’t know I describe ...

  • The current state of a MERGE Destination for SSIS

    Hugo Tap asked me on Twitter earlier today whether or not there existed a SSIS Dataflow Destination component that enabled one to MERGE data into a table rather than INSERT it. Its a common request so I thought it might be useful to summarise the current state of play as regards a MERGE destination for SSIS. Firstly, there is no MERGE destination ...

  • The perils of double-dash comments [T-SQL]

    I was checking my Twitter feed on my way in to work this morning and was alerted to an interesting blog post by Valentino Vranken that highlights a problem regarding the OLE DB Source in SSIS. In short, using double-dash comments in SQL statements within the OLE DB Source can cause unexpected results. It really is quite an important read if you’re ...

  • sp_ssiscatalog v1.0.1.0 now available for download

    13 days ago I wrote a blog post entitled Introducing sp_ssiscatalog (v1.0.0.0) in which I first made mention of sp_ssiscatalog, an open source stored procedure intended to make it easy to query the SSIS Catalog. I have been working on some enhancements since then and hence v1.0.1.0 is now available for download from Codeplex. What’s new in this ...

  • Querying the SSIS Catalog? Here’s a handy query!

    I’ve been working on a SQL Server Integration Services (SSIS) solution for about 6 months now and I’ve learnt many many things that I intend to share on this blog just as soon as I get the time. Here’s a very short starter-for-ten… I’ve found the following query to be utterly invaluable when interrogating the SSIS Catalog to discover what is ...

  • Should we be able to deploy a single package to the SSIS Catalog?

    My buddy Sutha Thiru sent me an email recently asking about my opinion on a particular nuance of the project deployment model in SQL Server Integration Services (SSIS) 2012 and I’d like to share my response as I think it warrants a wider discussion. Sutha asked: Jamie What is your take on this? ...
