Microsoft SQL Server 2012 Integration Services: An Expert Cookbook

Overview of this book

SQL Server Integration Services (SSIS) is a leading tool in the data warehouse industry - used for performing extraction, transformation, and load operations. This book is aligned with the most common methodology associated with SSIS known as Extract Transform and Load (ETL); ETL is responsible for the extraction of data from several sources, their cleansing, customization, and loading into a central repository normally called Data Warehouse or Data Mart.Microsoft SQL Server 2012 Integration Services: An Expert Cookbook covers all the aspects of SSIS 2012 with lots of real-world scenarios to help readers understand usages of SSIS in every environment. Written by two SQL Server MVPs who have in-depth knowledge of SSIS having worked with it for many years.This book starts by creating simple data transfer packages with wizards and illustrates how to create more complex data transfer packages, troubleshoot packages, make robust SSIS packages, and how to boost the performance of data consolidation with SSIS. It then covers data flow transformations and advanced transformations for data cleansing, fuzzy and term extraction in detail. The book then dives deep into making a dynamic package with the help of expressions and variables, and performance tuning and consideration.

Execution from SSMS

In a production environment, there will be some cases where an administrator or an authorized user wants to execute a package; and note that the production environment will not have SSDT installed in many cases. Hence, execution from SSMS is one of the easy options that is handy for users.

In this recipe we run an SSIS project from SSMS. We deployed the project on SQL Server in Chapter 9, Deployment.

Getting ready

We need to have the SSIS project deployed on SSMS from the previous chapter.

How to do it...

  1. Open SSMS from Start | All Programs | Microsoft SQL Server | SQL Server Management Studio.

  2. Connect to the database engine and set the server name as local (or if you used another instance or server name provide that as server).

  3. In Object Explorer, under your server name, expand Integration Services Catalogs and then under SSISDB, from R01_Deployment From SSDT right-click on P02_Child.dtsx and click on Execute.

  4. In the Execute Package window, just click on OK to execute the package...
