Bulks inserts and SSIS

SQL Server Integration Services (SSIS) really isn’t my thing. I like to get my hands dirty with code. But every now and then (not often enough for me to remember anything of what I’ve previously done) I have to bite the bullet and open an SSIS package in Visual Studio.

Today has been one of those days.

The goal of the package was simple: to import the contents of two CSV files from a network share into two database tables on a SQL Server. After a day of struggling to reason why I was getting various “Access is denied” and “The file … does not exist” error messages, I finally discovered this blog post that helped to clear the mist.

Bingo! I now have a package with two Sequence Containers with green execution results.
