Hi All,
I'm trying to access the MS access tables in SSIS using Microsoft Jet Ole db provider.

I'm trying to find the Null values and replace it by some value.

When i use Nz(FieldName,'') i'm receiving an error saying invalid function Nz. But if I use the same in MS Access db it is running successfully.

Is there any equivalent of Nz function that I can use in SSIS using Microsoft Jet Ole db provider for accessing MS Access data?

Try the ISNULL() function instead.

Hi thanks for your reply.
IsNull() function in MS access checks whether the values is null or not.
But I want it in a way that if it is Null i'm going to replace it by ~.

Something like IsNull(FieldName,'~') that we use in SQL Server.
Is there a function equivalent to that besides Nz(fieldname, '~') in MS Access?

you can use the COALESCE function in SQL server to perform a simliar opertion to Nz

  select coalesce(FieldName,'NewValue')

I thought you wanted to do this through SSIS? In SSIS the function is IsNull(FieldName,'~'). In Access it's Nz(). Which is it that you really want to do?

In SSIS, to replace a null value - used the Derived Column box with the following systax:

ISNULL( [FLDA]) == TRUE ? 'X' : [FLDA]

Relates to ' If FLDA is null, move 'X' to FLDA, else move FLDA to FLDA'.

This will check FLDA for nulls - it it is equal to nulls, it will replace it with 'X' (or any other character you specify), otherwise, it just keeps the content of FLDA intact.

For folks that come across this post...

NZ() function is not available outside of Access so you can't use it in SSIS. What I came across was having to do something like this:

SELECT IIF(ISNULL(Column1),'',Column1) AS MyColumn



I found the above by falling over this MSDN forum post from Google.

Caveat: I am working with SQL Server 2008 R2 so I have not tried this on SQL Server 2005.
