I have a similar situation. I am running a script against our DW database.
The script collects data from 3 different DBs and stores them in temp tables.
Joins those temp tables and slects required results.

I need to be able to put this script in SSIS to export it to a flat file. And I get the
'No available i/p columns' error.

As per your suggested options i tried to put it into a PROC , but was not able to since
a USE database statement is not allowed in a procedure, function or trigger.


How do i fix my problem.

Thanks in Advance.


Today is the tomorrow you worried about yesterday:-)

for crossdatabase stuff inside a procedure , you only got two choices;
1: can you adapt the specific script to use 3 part names?
you know, SELECT * FROM Production.dbo.Invoices

or
2: switch to dynamic SQL and EXEC a string: multiple commands are simply semi-colon delimited.
DECLARE @isql VARCHAR(1000)
SET @isql = 'USE SandBox; SELECT * FROM dbo.Invoices; SELECT @@version;'
EXEC(@isql)
