Table Variable in Execute SQL Task SSIS

Yesterday one of my colleague ask me to resolve an issue with table variable in SSIS.

What was that issue, she was trying to use Table variable in "Execute SQL Task", everything was working but no data was loading in table.

After reading an article what we found that by just putting "SET NOCOUNT ON" statement on the top of TSQL script will resolve that issue.

Means when we simply run any SELECT statement then SQL Server returns two sets as an output , one is result of Select statement and second is "no of rows affected by a Transact-SQL statement".

SSIS treat last result as an original output which is not in actual , so by putting  "SET NOCOUNT ON" statement we can stop the last output .


Excel File Connection Manager Connection String Problem

Today I encountered a following error on Sql Server 2012 while creating a basic SSIS package to load multiple Excel Files in database.

[Connection manager "Excel Connection Manager"] Error: The connection string format is not valid. It must consist of one or more components of the form X=Y, separated by semicolons. This error occurs when a connection string with zero components is set on database connection manager.

I spent a couples of minutes to identify issue ,finally found solution:

Choose "Excel File Path" instead of "ConnectionString"while setting expression on Excel Connection Manager .

Hope this full help others who are facing the same problem.
