SQL Server 2005 - SQL Server Integration Services - Part 6

  • Article

In this article, we are continuing coverage of Foreach Loop container functionality, by discussing different types of loop enumerators. So far, we have presented methods for working with files in a folder as well as records in a recordset (using Foreach File and Foreach ADO enumerators, respectively). Our next enumerator is based on the SQL Server Management Objects technology (hence it is referred to as the SMO enumerator), which is the SQL Server 2005, .NET-based management framework providing replacement for COM-based DMO (Distributed Management Objects) that served an equivalent role in earlier versions of SQL Server.

SQL Server Integration Services - Part 5

We will continue our review of Foreach enumerators starting with Foreach ADO, since this one probably qualifies as the most popular choice in its category. This is due to the fact that ADO recordsets offer a convenient way of dealing with data sources, regardless of their type (for example, within SSIS, you can easily populate a recordset by executing a SQL query or by reading the content of a flat file)

Shredding a Recordset

  • Article

Shredding a recordset in this instance means that we are going to show you how to take a recordset produced in your SSIS package, loop over the rows in that recordset, break apart the columns and do something with them. This is really useful when you want to preform an action on a row of data for every row of data just like we are going to do here. Sure we could use an ExecuteSQL task to get the recordset as well but that does limit our choices of source data whereas doing it in the pipeline does not. Something useful we hope.
