Transactions in SQL Server 2005 Integration Services

  • Article

SQL Server 2005 no longer has DTS. Instead, the next evolution of ETL tools from Microsoft is Integration Services, with many enhancements and capabilities, far beyond what was available in SQL Server 2000 DTS. New author Jamie Thomson brings us a look at the transaction capabilities of SQLIS in Yukon.

Easy Package Configuration

  • Article

One of the age old problems in DTS is moving packages between your development, test and production environments. Typically a series of manual edits needs to be done to all the packages to make sure that all the connection objects are pointing to the correct physical servers. This is time consuming and gives rise to the possibility of human error, particularly if the solution incorporates many DTS packages. Many companies have provided their own custom solutions for managing this problem but these are still workarounds for a problem that is inherently DTS's.

For Loop Container Samples

  • Article

One of the new tasks in SQL Server 2005 is the For Loop Container. In this article we will demonstrate a few simple examples of how this works. Firstly it is worth mentioning that the For Loop Container follows the same logic as most other loop mechanism you may have come across, in that it will continue to iterate whilst the loop test (EvalExpression) is true. There is a known issue with the EvalExpression description in the task UI being wrong at present. (SQL Server 2005 Beta 2).

File Inserter Transformation

  • Article

SQL Server 2005 has made it a lot easier for us to loop over a collection and with each iteration do something with the item retrieved. In this article we are going to show you how to iterate over a folder looking at the files within and doing something with those files. In this instance we will be entering the filename into a SQL Server table and we will then load the actual files we have just found into another SQL Server table. You will note here that there is still the need to load the file names into a table as an intermediate step just as we need to do in SQL Server 2000.

Workflow Constraints (Logical OR)

  • Article

To do some of the stuff we wanted in SQL Server 2000 DTS we had put together some serious glue code and to be honest it wasn't pretty. One of the things that we used to have to do this way was if we wanted to implement using workflow constraints a Logical OR. Well that has changed and it is now really simple and this article is going to show you how to implement it.

The OLE DB Command Transformation

  • Article

In the newsgroups we have been asked on a number of occasions how to execute a stored procedure once for every row of input data. There's currently no really good way of doing this but in SQL Server 2005 DTS that is about to change. This article is going to show you how to take values from a source table and for every row execute a stored procedure which inserts values into another table.

Updatable Views II

I have this view:

CREATE OR ALTER VIEW dbo.City 
AS
SELECT TOP 10 
 cn.CityNameID, cn.CityName
 FROM dbo.CityName AS cn
 WITH CHECK OPTION
GO
How can I modify the view to make it is updatable with this code?
INSERT City (CityName) VALUES ('Dillon')
