Your article discusses exactly the kind of question I'd be likely to post, and I'd love to follow your suggestions. And being brand new to a post-2000 SQL...

Obviously there's not a lot of enthusiasm for writing competing SSIS training books. Thanks for these suggestions. I'll just have to remember that I wasn't born knowing DTS...

Hi Gift Peddie,
Thanks to you and everyone else who responded. The decision has been made (like that passive tense?) to go with C#, mostly for the reasons listed here,...

Thanks for that suggestion. It's actually similar to what we're doing now, but here's the problem with that. We have a test instance and a production instance. ...

Thanks so much. This is exactly the discussion I was looking for.

Thanks for responding. We have a test instance on one server, and a prod instance on another. We want the file produced on the prod instance to be...

Thanks for responding. I have looked at that sp a dozen times, there's nothing in there. I even dropped and recreated it. I've attached the code for...

Thanks for responding. No triggers anywhere; not in SpotsWarrants, not in SpotsWarrantsErrors. I've posted the create statements for both tables below. And my first thought was 'I...

I've figured it out. The table I was retrieving the value from has the InvalidCharacter field defined as char(5), because of other uses of the table. Apparently moving...
