Text Qualifier property in SSIS

ssis transfer


Let’s assume that we are importing data from a  flat file and all the columns have some special characters in it. How to remove those while loading in to destination ? One of the solutions is using the property “Text Qualifier”. Let’s see an example here ..

Here is the sample CSV file as it looks in a text editor.  You can see that all of the columns have double quotes around the data even where there is no data.  The file is comma delimited, so this should give us enough information to import the data column by column.

To create the package we use a Data Flow Task and then use the Flat File Source as our data flow source.

When setting up the Flat File Connection for the data source we enter the information below, basically just selecting our source file.

If we do a quick preview on the dataset we can see that every column has the double quotes even the columns where there is no data.  If you open the text file in Excel the double quotes are automatically stripped, so what needs to be done in SSIS to accomplish this.

On this screen you can see the highlighted area and the entry that is made for the “Text qualifier”.  Here we enter in the double quote mark ” and this will allow SSIS to strip the double quotes from all columns.

If we do another preview we can see that the double quotes are now gone and we can move on to the next part of our SSIS package development.

Above this is a simple fix to solve this problem.  If you are faced with this issue, hopefully this gives you a quick answer to get your development moving forward.  This same technique can be used to strip any other text qualifier data from your files.

  6. This is helpful. Funny, I just bought some new brushes last week for the first time in forever. Inspired by Tarababyz on YT and so I got a Goss and Chikuhodo GS you have listed. I like them. So soft. I still have all my old school MAC brushes but I love that they went synthetic and cruelty-free. So I assume you can’t get squirrel cruelty free and none of those listed above are? I want cruelty-free. And so I’ve bought synthetic. I like IT cosmetics brushes for the face because they are synthetic, but also love the ones I feel guilty for- Tom Ford brush and bronzer brushes and the other two new ones listed above for the eyes. If I’m wrong about them being cruelty-free, please let me know. I used the Enhanced Eye Set 2.0 from Real Techniques. First, I start with an eye shadow primer that helps the eye makeup stand out, stay put, and helps prevent creasing. I used the Medium Shadow Brush to apply from lash to brow above the eyes. Now, use that same brush, uncleaned to apply Foxy all over your eye from lashes to brow. https://brooksvmao542197.blogspothub.com/14751987/designer-eye-patch Microblading is a revolutionary technique that can transform the lives of patients with hypotrichosis of the eyebrows, trichotillomania, eyebrow loss due to internal disease (such as thyroid disease), chemotherapy-induced eyebrow loss, or alopecia – or simply those seeking it for cosmetic improvement.
