Sometimes you get reminded that you don’t know everything about SQL Server and it’s various products Every time I run into something like this I am going to write a quick blog about it. It’s something new I’m trying
While recently examining an existing SSIS package before implementing some needed changes I noticed the connection manager for multiple flat files.
Normally, when processing multiple files, I use a sequence container and loop through them. It’s usually a cumbersome process to setup and you must configure variables. I was not aware the multiple flat file type of connection manager existed. No wonder because it’s notwithin the normal list. This handy thing could only be found when I looked under “New Connection”.
Right click in the blank space in the Connection Manager and select “New Connection” from the resulting dialog window.
Just a reminder that it benefits, at times, to click around to discover new things!
