I have to import data from a .txt file using SSIS package into sql server.

HOW CAN WE FIND(KNOW) THE

a) Format

b) Text Qualifier

c) Header row delimiter

d) Row Delimiter

e) Column Delimiter

of .txt file when defining the "Flat File connection manager Editor in SSIS"








Does SSIS autodetect these things when we select the file ??

You need to supply the information based on the layout of the text file. It is not auto-detected.

You need to open the file and take a look yourself.
Typically the analysis (if there is any) of your import should contain these details.
