Dynamic columns mapping – Script Component as Destination (SSIS)


In Data Flow task of SSIS, we have to define a Data Source as well as a destination to extract & load the data respectively. And as per the functionality of data flow task (DFT), metadata of the source fields has to be defined at the design time. That’s the input columns from the source must be mapped to the destination columns and for that we must know the schema of the input as well as the destination/output columns.

But in many business scenarios we come across the requirement where at runtime only we come to know about the structure of the input columns and thus at runtime only we have to decide for the destination columns, this is called dynamic mapping.


This type of dynamic mapping for source to destination can be achieved using script component. This script component can be used in three ways in data flow task:

  1. As a Transformation,
  2. As a Data Source
  3. As a Destination

When we drag & drop the script component from tool box, a dialog box will appear to choose the required type.


















1.  Transformation: Script component can be used to do some transformations on the input data, processing each & every row one by one. We can write custom code/script in it to make the required operations on the data. In this case total number of output columns would be same as that of input columns.

2.  Source: If we select script component to be used as a Data Source, we can configure the component to generate the required number of rows as the output. In this case we can add as many columns we want in the output of the script component and then at runtime we can write code/script to add the rows in the output. We can also have multiple asynchronous outputs with different-2 names which can be loaded to different-2 destinations.

3.  Destination: Sometimes we don’t want to dump/load the input data directly to the destination like OLEDB destination or Flat file destination; rather we want to decide for the number of columns/rows somewhere before actually loading the data. Here we can choose script component as a destination.

Script component should be used as a source, in case we are sure about the schema/columns of the input records. But in the component’s script editor we can process the data & generate the output rows based upon certain conditions.  But here also we have to map the output of this component to the destination columns at design time only.

Now in case; we want to have dynamic mapping at runtime, we can configure Script component as a Destination. In this mode of component we can look at the input data & decide about the structure of the fields to be loaded into the final destination, based upon certain conditions which can be stored in database or variables.

Configuring Script Component as a Destination

Adding Connection Managers: Since in the script component itself, we are going to load data into the final destination, we need the connection manager(s) to connect to the final destination e.g. Flat File connection manager, OLE DB connection manager etc. On Connection Managers page of the Script Component Editor, we can add the already created connection manager or also can add new connection managers. All the added connection managers would be available in the script via Me.Connections. connectionname (vb.net) & this.Connections.connectionname (C#).

Input/ Output columns and Variables: We can configure the input columns, output columns as well as variables as is done in the normal script task or component.

Scripting the Destination Component: Its main configuration is the custom script (vb.net or C#) which is used to process the input data, decide over the number/ type of destination columns and then load them into the final destination.

There are many functions/subroutines which we can override in the script to acquire the added connection managers, process the input data, form the query at runtime & load the data into the destination etc.

Example: Let’s take an example in which we add one ADO.Net connection manager ‘myConnection’ to execute a query at the SQL server destination.

Note: Here we will connect to SQL Server via a managed connection manager (ADO.Net) because AcquireConnections function works for these only. Otherwise we’ll have to create connection in the script only; using the connection string of the defined connection manager.

Imports System.Data.SqlClient

Public Class ScriptMain

    Inherits UserComponent

Dim conMgr As IDTSConnectionManager100

    Dim sqlConn As SqlConnection

    Dim sqlCmd As SqlCommand

 Public Overrides Sub AcquireConnections(ByVal Transaction As Object)

  conMgr = Me.Connections.MyConnection

  sqlConn = CType(conMgr.AcquireConnection(Nothing), SqlConnection)

     End Sub

     Public Overrides Sub PreExecute()

         sqlCmd = New SqlCommand(“INSERT INTO MyTable(Col1, Col2) ” & _

            “VALUES(@Value1, @Value2)“, sqlConn)

        sqlParam = New SqlParameter(“@Value1“, SqlDbType.Int)


        sqlParam = New SqlParameter(“@Value2“, SqlDbType.Int)


     End Sub

     Public Overrides Sub MyAddressInput_ProcessInputRow(ByVal Row As MyAddressInputBuffer)

        With sqlCmd

            .Parameters(“@Value1“).Value = Row.ID

            .Parameters(“@Value2“).Value = Row.Count


        End With

    End Sub

     Public Overrides Sub ReleaseConnections()


     End Sub

 End Class

 Thus we can process the input columns, make connections and based upon required conditions; we can build our own queries to dynamically map them to the destination. In the similar way we can write to Flat file destination as well.

    HI, Munish

    Very interesting your article. I need to create some kind of Dinamic DataFLow, that reads from a configuration file
    the columns to recover and the table to load.

    Could You Help me with template .dtsx ?

    Thank you

    Hi Munish,
    I came accross your blog while searching for a solution and your article provided me with a hope that it can be done.

    Here is my problem.

    I have a CSV which provides a format.
    Table_name, Field_offset, Field_Length, Field_Name
    Table1, 1, 3, Column1
    Table1, 4, 9, Column2
    Table1, 13, 5, Column3
    Table1, 18 2, Column4

    This format file has about 200 columns.

    I have a flxed length flat file which holds the data. The name of this flat file changes daily.

    How do I set the FlatFile connection properties adding columns and its offset and length dynamically for the source and read the data from the flat file?

    Your help and any relevant example is much appreciated.

    Thank you in advance.


  9. @NewSSISUser

    See for making the flat file connection dynamic, you can use expressions in the connection string property of the same or using ForEachLoop for File Enumerator you can read the file.
    Now you can configure the connection to get the complete row of the file into a single column with pre-defined data type of say VARCHAR(max).
    Then by means of a SP or so, you can split the data based on the actual delimiter of the columns and put them into another table.

    Need an help in SSIS package as I am totally new. Requirement is simple. I have an SSIS package which sends out a mail once it is successful or failure. It accepts three flat files, does a minimum transform and loads into staging and production table. Once successful, sends out a email repprt to group.
    All email reports are generated using xslt file. It uses ADO.NET recordset, extracting data into an xml file. Pacakge then applies xslt template to the xml file to generate a
    Users finds these emails annoying. They want email only when there are errors. Errors could be either files not found or data constraint error between staging and production tables.

    how to achieve this?

  11. Hi Anand,

    The only modification, you need to do with your package is to change the places wherever you have placed ‘Send Mail’ tasks.

    So let’s say, if Flie not found error occurs, your ‘File System Task’ will fail and hence you can configure the precedence constraint for Failure and after that only put the Send Mail task.

    In other case, wherein you are getting errors in DFT (in between source & destination), you have two ways to track the error and send the emails out:
    1. You can use the Event Handlers. There you can select the OnError event and place the Send Mail task there. Or

    2. You can set one variable on occurance of an error in the DTF. And then after completion of the DTF, in Control Flow pane, you can check the value of that variable to know if some error occurred or not and send email accrodingly.

    Hi Munish ,

    I’m totally new to the SSIS stuff. I’ve posted my problem in the link below. I just want a simple data transformation/conversion component without changing much of my code in the link below (as i’m running out of time now).

    I ‘d really appreciate if you could please help me figure out how to do it.i’ve used this link also by customising my code, http://www.sqlservercentral.com/Forums/Topic554119-148-1.aspx#top

    it works but how do i map IDTSOutputColumn90 column (created in the above link) to the external metadata column?After getting the tranformed IDTSOutputColumn90 column in each loop …how do i map it to the respective destination column

    Please reply urgently…


  14. Kavi says:

    Hi munish,

    Iam calling the SSIS Package form .net code. I am passing a excel file each time. so my package has to create a table with a predefined table name with the columns from the Excel File and load the data in to that.

    Please help me to do this….



  15. Hi Kavi,

    I think you should pass path (with excel file name) where the excel with a pre-defined table/sheet name is to be created. And then in the package use an ‘Execute SQL Task’ configured with the path being passed as an Excel/OLE DB connection and in the query part, put the query as (as per the structure required):

    CREATE TABLE `TableName`
    `1Col1` Integer,

    You can also use a ‘File System Task’ before the Execute SQL Task to delete the existing excel file at the specified path provided.

    Munish Bansal

  16. Kavi says:


    i didnot get your solution.Let me explain my case.
    we have a predifined path of the xls file and a filename.

    everything is dynamically called from the .NET code, Even the SSIS package is invoked from the .NET code.

    The Columns in the excel sheet may vary.
    so how do i make my SSIS package to map my columns of the excel sheet to the dynamically created table.

    i create table columns of the excel sheet dynamically by reading the excel headers in the .NET code.

    I also have the path of the file

    Now how do i map my target table as the mapping for the SSIS requires the columns to be same as the excel sheets columns

    I need it ASAP. Actually my requirement is reading data from multiple Flat files (.txt) and import it into multiple tables. So I need do column mapping dynamically using script component.

    Thanks in advance


  21. nita says:

    Hello Munish,

    I think your blog will help me to solve my issue.

    I have similar kind of issue to solve. I need to read several .txt file(each text file has different number of columns) and these text files data to be loaded into sql server destination(temporary tables/table) dynamically.

    I took a for each loop and configured it and created a variable to store the text file names. And in the data flow task, I took single flat file source and single oledb destination. but I am unable to do the mapping in the scirpt component, as I am confused using the in using the script component. As you said, if I take the script e component as destination, do i need to give the connection magers property — destination connection manager? what do I need to give in the input/output or input of script component and I guess my flat file source should be as it is or do i need to do the flat file connection though the coding by editing the script.

    Could please help me doing this. I am trying alot, I am confused using script component and coding it it.

    Thanks alot

    I have package for validating the cube data of staging and publish db. Now to get the data from cube I have written an MDX query where I have an hierarchy which is ragged. I am using this MDX query in Datareader. There is different set of level for each year of the ragged hierarchy. If I am hardcoding the year in the MDX query it works fine. But when I change it to fetch the year value from variable, the column mappings for all the year is not same. Could you pls. help me how to go dynamic column mapping

    c ya takecare.
    Kp posting 🙂

  30. Hi Vaibhavi,

    As far as I understood your requirement, you can simply ignore the unwanted column(s) from the source’s (DFT) selection list. Also if you want to have some specific values (like null) to be inserted in the Data table (SQL Table) for those columns, either you can use ‘DerivedColumn’ transformation to add one more column with the desired value in the package or define the default value for such columns in the database itself.

    Hope this helps…

    Hi Munish,

    I have 2 csv files with different columns
    and the destination table is one.

    Csvone contains label,name,description
    Csvtwo contains label,parent,name,description…..

    Destination table is one.
    How do i go abt this.
    Also send me ur sample dtsx

  35. Hi Simran,

    Since you already know the structure of both of your CSV files…it can be easily implemented…but I did not get the exact requirement since the target table is the same for both of these input files.
    Please elaborate more on the requirement front…so that I may help you on the same.

  36. Pankaj Pathak says:

    HI Munish,
    I am new to SSIS . I want to FTP , unzip & import csv file in SSIS , occasionally there might be a new filed added in the csv file . I need to read the csv file and check in the database if this records in new record or if the record is existing with name change or if the record is existing record with status change etc. based on the these condition i need to generate the different output files. The newly added field should also go in one of the output file. What is way to model this in SSIS . Could you please share some sample dtsx on dynamically adding column and handing these type of conditions.

    Please help i am stuck ..

  37. Pankaj Pathak says:

    forgot to leave the email id in previous post .
    its pathakp@yahoo.com .

    1. FTP and unzip the csv file .

    2.make an entry of CSV file , so it should not imported twice

    3. CSV file in enclosed by ” we might have to remove those .

    4. Not sure if csv file should be loded in a table ?

    5. for each records in csv file , check if its a
    – New record ( i.e does not exists in one of the table )
    – If existng records is the name changed . ( one of the field in csv )
    – If existng records is the Status changed ( one of the field in csv )
    – If existng records is the salarychanged ( one of the field in csv )

    6. based on the above condition , the output should go the different output file ( flat file ).

    7. In case a new field added it should go in out put file as well .

    8. Send email and logging .

    i am not sure how do this is SSIS , being a newbie i tried playing , but no luck so far . any help appreciated …

    Please share the dtx sample project (s) . i will have a look and try to model something similar .

    Thanks & regards.


  38. Lina Li says:

    Hi Munish,

    I am asking how we can create “Dynamic Column” for the data transferring. For example, I have a couple of input files:
    1. input_1.csv
    John, Smith, 19800502, abc
    Joan, Garcia, 19700801, efg
    David, Yang, 19600901,xyz

    2. input2_1.csv
    Mary, Pippen, 19800601, abc, 6265551112
    Jason, Wang, 19800101, ccc, 8189991112

    3. output_table
    phone (Allow NULL)

    I have no problems if the input is a table, I can use a SQL sentence but I can not do for flat files. Please let me know if its possible.

    Thank you cery much!

  39. Hi Pankaj,

    Assuming, you are well aware of FTP task, so using that get the source CSV files to a local folder, probably by first deleting the existing ones.
    now you should dump the file data into some intermediatory/staging table (with one column as varchar(max)), by configuring the Flat File connection manager with column delimiter as CR-LF which to consider the whole row as one column.
    Here you can split the values based upon the delimiter and compare or examine the data as if it has changed or not probably using Lookup transformation etc.

    I could not get from your post whether you get CSV files with added/deleted fields or just with the changed values.

    Munish Bansal

  40. Pankaj Pathak says:

    Hi Munish ,
    Thanks a lot for the reply. Basically in the csv file the new field will be added. Also on can you explain little more on the look up transformation on how it will write to different files based on the condition checked.

    regards~ Pankaj

  41. Hi Pankaj,

    Since new fields are added, first using some T-SQL, you can be sure which output file it should be put to, and probably set some variable accordingly using script. Then based upon that variable’s value you can have diff-2 paths to destination thorugh the lookup transformation (by deciding using Conditional Split).
    In Lookup transformation, you can ref. some table (or output file if using 2008) to check for exisiting records or so.
    you can also select overwrite option in Flat File connection for destination or can first delete the output file & create a new one everytime.

    Munish Bansal

  42. Hi Lina,

    If you have got a very few no. of input file types, i would suggest you to create individual packages for all of them. That’s the best option if you are having huge data records in the input files.
    Else if you want to have one package for all of them, then as explained in some of my earlier comments, that you can dump the data into some staging table (with one column as varchar(max) having configured with column delimter as CR-LF and the using an SP, you can split them based upon the actual colum delimiter.
    And looking at columns’ number, you can then insert them into the destination table.

  46. Hey Munish

    I can handle as null in this case

    .Parameters(“@Value1“).Value = Row.ID

    for example something like that:

    if isdbnull(ID) then
    .Parameters(“@Value1“).Value = null
    .Parameters(“@Value1“).Value = Row.Id
    end if

    I have gone through your Article about Dynamic Column Mapping in SSIS.

    I will get 10 Flat files every day. I have 10 database tables whose schema is according to those 10 flat files.

    I am loading Data from Flat File source to SQL server Table (OLEdb Destination. I created a SSIS package with one data flow task, which dynamic flat file and OLEdb Destination.

    I want to change the name of the Flatfile Name and Table Name for every run through configuration File. When I change the Names of FlatFile and Database Table (of different schema ). I got an Error stating VS_NEEDSNEWMETADATA.

    So can you please provide me any suggestions or any dtsx package file to overcome this issue.

    Hi Munish Bansal,

    Looks like this is a great article. I have similar situation. Where I receive about 400 xml files daily. We have about 40 different varitey of xml files to be loaded in 40 tables. I was trying to dynamically create package, so that with one data flow task and configuration from a table can be done. Various attempts failed, but looks like your idea is good. Can you send me a sample package, that would be really helpful for me and saves time.

    I have got my result into a table in a server. Now I want that table data to be loaded into different tables present in different servers. For example- if I have data for a country – “Canada”,it should go to a server usftw209, if I have data for a country – “Hongkong”,it should go to a server usftw052 and so on.
    Do u have any idea, how we are going to do this dynamically?

    Hi munish,

    my problem is :

    1.Declare a variable called “Year” and value is 2010 (for a testing purpose)this may vary generally.
    2. using the Script Component in data flow i have to change the column names to have “Year” value at the end of each column i.e like _2010 i.e JAN_2010 FEB_2010 MAR_2010 … DEC_2010(2010 should come from variable)
    3. what needs to be coded inside a method called “ProcessInputRow” in script component.

    I’m also asking the same, can you please send the dtsx or the script for mapping to my id.

    Munish, would also very much appreciate email of package to gmelhaff@comcast.net

    Still unsure how the @Value1 isn’t merely hardcoding each column into the script component but very much need to study this solution.

    The need…Run over a hundred delta capture staging jobs where the Oracle source and SqlServer target tables and column mappings change for every package but other than that everything else is a follows just a few patterns.

    Goal…make just a few packages, 1 for each staging pattern where the source/target are totally dynamic so the metadata is populated at runtime, over 100 unique package executions could become just a few at design time. Maybe I’m dreaming but wanted to explore the possibility.

    I have a similar situation and will appreciate your help in that. We are storing source queries / stored procedure and mapping between source and destination column in a database and trying to create DFT which will execute the source queries and then map columns based on the mapping stored in the database. The number of source columns can vary in different sources. I was able to execute different queries when the source columns name were not changing but not able to find solution when number of source columns or their name are changing.
    Can you suggest any solution for this problem

    Hi ,

    Really goood article.

    I have a problem with Data flow task performace. It takes 45 mins to execute as there are 6000 rows. It works fine for lesser number of rows.

    This DFT contains
    -one OLEDB Source which is an Access dtabase.
    – two OLEDB Commands – to update SQL Database tables with the data in source MS Access database.

    Can I use Script component to update SQL table.

    If Yes, cold you please let me know the procedure?

    Thanks in advance!

    Best Regards,

  96. Nigel Harris says:

    Maybe I’m missing something here, but this doesn’t seem to me to be handling data sources with different column names. In the MyAddressInput_ProcessInputRow() subroutine in your example, Row.ID and Row.Count columns are read – what if, as your introduction said, you don’t know the details of the input columns until runtime?

    I have written some code for a script component to take different numbers of differently named columns and put them into a properly normalised format for insertion into SQL Server. That works fine for the example source table used in development. The problems start, however, when you try to change the source table to one with differently named columns. Is there any way to persuade SSIS to refresh its source table metadata at runtime?


  97. Hi Munish,
    I am a newbie to SSIS, just starting it off…I hv five flat files which needs to be inserted as it is to the Staging database….
    After this i need to insert these tables into ODS database with validations for date, amount, valid characters and all…log the error reports into another column.
    I need to schedule this job all at one go.
    I have been successful doing for individual tables but stuck coz i need 2 do this at one go.. your help will be highly appreciated….

    Hi Munish,

    I need to load data from an excel file that has following sheet layout

    Col A ColB ColC Col D ColE ……………..Col AI
    Header : month type TTL 1 2 3 4…………. 31

    Data: 1 Category
    1 Prem Room Type
    1 Tactics
    1 Forecast CS OCC
    1 Forecast ADR OCC
    1 eComm tactics
    1 Catering Seasonal Special

    2 Forecast CS OCC
    2 Forecast ADR OCC
    2 eComm tactics
    2 Catering Seasonal Special
    2 TBD
    2 TBD
    2 TBD

    I need to import this data unpivoted by Col E through Col AI and insert int o tabel structure listed below

    Columns E through Columns AI are transalated as F3, F4, F5……
    [PropertyCode] [nvarchar](3) NULL,
    [PropertyPID] [int] NULL,
    [PSA_TypeID] [int] NULL,
    [AsOfDate] [datetime] NULL,
    [PSA_Date] [datetime] NULL,
    [PSAValue] [nvarchar](255) NULL

    each of the unpivoted col wil be a row inserted in the table structure. I am getting the first 4 columns as derived columns the issue I am running in to is that I need to construct the PSA_Date using the value in column month + extrapolating the digit from column headers F3 thru F35 and only pick the date vlaid for that month + 4 digits of the year that I extrapolate from the file name in derived columns task. So for date validation I need to make sure that I pick up dates valid for that month meaning if month = 1 then 1/31/2011 is valid but for month = 2 it is not.

    My current dtsx layout includes:
    1) Execute SQL task to create table structure if it does not exist
    2) Execute task to get the value for first two columns and the file path
    3) For each loop task to loop over the recordset that has the filepath value to import data from the specific task
    4) Db connection manager used for my OLEDB destination
    5) Excel file connection to an existing excel file with the ExcelFilepath set up to look at the variable that get populated from the recordset.

    My DFT has th following tasks

    ExcelFileSource task pointing to the Excel file connection manager

    Derived Column Transformation task

    Data Conversion task

    Script Component

    3 unpivot tasks

    Union ALL task to merge data sets

    OLEDB Destination to insert data in to the table

    The thing I am strugglig with is to how do I get the PSA_Date and add as a row to the data set that will be inserted in to the table

    This is what I have been trying to do:

    In my script component I create three different
    outputs columns: O31 and associate it with 31 input columns, O30 and asscociate with 30 days not include day 31 and O28 for month Feb

    I then connect each of them to the three unpivots and then join the three data set using UNION.

    So long story short:
    How do i get the PSADate as a new row
    How do I configure the output colums in the script component to look at specific days based on the month being processed.

    Any insight wil be greatly appreciated.

    I can be reached at jdias@heihotels.com

    Thanks in advance for all your help

  119. Archana says:

    Hi Munish,

    I have a requirement to read a single date value from an excel file and store it to a variable in the package.

    I tried using the execute SQL task with a query of the format select [date] from [excel tab$]. This is however giving an error of some mismatch in data types. Tried different options of data types but not successful.

    Another option was to read it in a DFT. But how do I store it into a variable after this? Can a script task achieve this?

    Please suggest best approach.

  122. Diederick Langenberg says:

    Hi Munish,

    We are trying to rewrite a working DTS package into a SSIS package.
    It opens text files which have a dynamic count of columns; the column names are fixed for each text file (filenames are fixed), but their position within the header row is not.Every text file has the column names on the first row.
    For example:
    file A:
    column1, column2, column3, column4
    file B:
    column2, column1, column3
    file C:
    column5, column4, column3, column2, column1

    In a nutshell:
    The DTS packge reads the header row from a text file to determine how many columns there would be needed and add just as many transformations accordingly. The next step then uses dynamically added transformations to dump the data into a dummy table (which can fit all the data from all text files). After this is done, the final step is a stored procedure which stores all the data into the desired tables (relations and correct datatypes are put in place).

    How would I ‘transform’ the following script into a SSIS package ?
    I know there is no DTS.DataPumpTransformCopy anymore, so maybe I should be doing this in a completely different way.

    Function Main()
    Dim FSO
    Dim file
    Dim fStream
    Dim line
    Dim stringArray
    Dim colCount
    Dim task
    Dim transformation

    DTSGlobalVariables.Parent.Connections(“AuditBase Dump”).DataSource = DTSGlobalVariables(“gFileName”)

    SET FSO = CreateObject(“Scripting.FileSystemObject”)

    SET file = FSO.GetFile(DTSGlobalVariables(“gFileName”))
    SET fStream = file.OpenAsTextStream(1, 0) ‘ Open file for reading
    line = fStream.ReadLine

    Set task = DTSGlobalVariables.Parent.Tasks(“DTSTask_DTSDataPumpTask_1”).CustomTask
    While task.Transformations.Count > 0

    stringArray = Split(line, Chr(9))
    colCount = 0
    For Each str In stringArray
    colCount = colCount + 1
    If Trim(str) “” Then
    Set transformation = task.Transformations.New(“DTS.DataPumpTransformCopy”)
    transformation.Name = “DTSTransformation__” & colCount
    transformation.TransformFlags = 63

    transformation.SourceColumns.AddColumn “Col” & Right(“00” & colCount, 3), 1
    transformation.SourceColumns(1).DataType = 129
    transformation.SourceColumns(1).Flags = 32
    transformation.SourceColumns(1).Size = 255

    transformation.DestinationColumns.AddColumn “Col” & Right(“00” & colCount, 3), 1
    transformation.DestinationColumns(1).DataType = 129
    transformation.DestinationColumns(1).Flags = 104
    transformation.DestinationColumns(1).Size = 8000


    Set transformation = Nothing
    End If
    Set task = Nothing

    If colCount > 80 Then
    MsgBox “Meer dan 80 kolommen in DumpBestand niet toegestaan”
    Main = DTSTaskExecResult_Failure
    SET fStream = file.OpenAsTextStream(8, 0) ‘ Open file for appending
    fStream.Write Chr(10)

    Main = DTSTaskExecResult_Success

    02-01-2010 9 7,87 5,4 3

    I wanted to normalize it with unpivot task in an SSIS package:
    date | ArtCode | Value
    01-01-2010 ArtCodeX 8
    01-01-2010 ArtCodeY 7
    01-01-2010 ArtCodeK 6,4
    01-01-2010 ArtCode… 5

    My problem is that columns names are dynamic and moreover i could have different number of columns depending on the excel file i’m uploading.

    By using your script, is there a way to dynamically map columns in the unpivot transformation task?
    can you send me a sample of the script.

    My compliments and Best Regards,
    Enrico Milani

  136. Jason says:

    Hello! this looks very promising. I really appreciate the time you’ve put in. I too have a similar requirement. I am pulling data from a cube using a MDX script built using an expression. The resulting fields will go into an excel file. The problem I have is this.

    some of the field names can vary depending on which years are of interest. since the years can vary, and thus the field names, the excel connection bombs. I need to be able to dynamically build these fields and load them into the excel file.

    Would you mind sending me the dtsx?

    Hi Munish..
    i have number of flat files. and i have to load the data from these flat files to corresponding tables..

    in database i have created a table with two columns where i saved my flat files location in one column and corresponding table name in another column..

    i created the expression to get the file location dynamically.. i had done it using foreach loop container with data flow task..

    but i finding some difficult in mapping columns in oledb destination tool.. its showing error called *NEEDSNEWMETADATA*.

    how to map the columns dynamically.. And this dynamical process should load the data from different flat files into corresponding tables…

    is there any third party tool available for this?or can we do this through any script..?

    thanks in advance

    Hi munish,
    Very nice article .
    I am tyring to load 100 tables dynamically from one server db to another server db by using only SSIS with only one data flow task. Could you please help me on this. for any better solution.

  176. Hossein says:

    Thanks Munish for the useful post.
    But there is sth in your article I cant understand. At the beginning of the post you are saying it is meant to address dynamic source and destination scenarios. But looking at your code, the input to the Script is already determined and static. I am having the problem with running a number of queries that can be generated dynamically against Access db and putting the result into csvs and I am keen to know is there any way that I can dynamically do that.Say using a loop and feeding the query to the DFT in each iteration.

  188. sankar says:

    I have one requirement like , I have to copy the data from source server tables to destination server tables which are having same columns for all the tables. Server A is having X,Y,Z tables and Server B is Having same X,Y,Z tables… the data is not direct copy means to retrieve the A table’s data we have to do the some join operations with other tables like B,C..etc and the same for B,C tables data also. So i wrote one Stored procedure to pull the details from these tables (A,B,C) so the sp outcome is having 3 result sets i.e A,B,C. So to do this I took Script Component and calling this stored procedure and also i created output columns for all these tables and in the script i wrote the code to bind the sp data to these output buffers. So finally my script component is returning A,B,C tables result sets , now how do i bind these result sets to destination server A,B,C respective tables. Please help mee sirrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrr
