Hi,

I have some problem in Conditional Split Task in SSIS.

Suppose, I want to find the customers whose name starts with "ab" then I can use the SQL Query like this " SELECT * FROM Customers WHERE ContactName LIKE "ab%". But I have to use the Stored Procedure as a OLE DB Data Source. I have the permission to use the Stored Procedure but I cann't edit the Stored Procedure.



But in the Conditional Split Transformation in SSIS, it doesn't support the LIKE functions.I want to manipulate the same logic in Conditional Split Task. I want to filter those records whose name starts with "ab" in Conditional Split Trasnformation.



Please help me as soon as possible.

use SUBSTRING function

SUBSTRING(name,2,2) = 'ab'

Hope it will work out...

Thanks!

The substring functio should be:

SUBSTRING(name,1,2) = "ab"

In a more general way the FINDSTRING function might be usefull:

FINDSTRING(name, "ab", 1) == 0

You can also use the LEFT function in this case.

The substring functio should be:

SUBSTRING(name,1,2) = "ab"


Actually, the substring function should be SUBSTRING(name,1,2) == "ab".

If you use a single = sign, SSIS assumes you are assigning a value to something. == is the true conditional test of whether or not something equals another value.

Good catch on the single quote problem of the previous poster.

EDIT: I know this is an old thread, but I added my bit in here in case anyone else comes across this thread in a GOOGLE search and tries to use the solution in their package.

That's a tautology (aka always true).
-1 is never returned by the findstring function, so this expression always yields true.

Actually, I think you might be thinking of the word truism.

Tautology is where you say the same thing twice when once is enough - eg, any sentence containing "and also" or "opening gambit."

You are referring to the rhetoric tautology, I'm referring to the logic tautology.

a tautology is a formula which is true in every possible interpretation
