Unable to prepare the SSIS bulk insert for data insertion

Minor point of annoyance to keep in mind, always run BIDS as administrator otherwise you’ll get some jacked up errors, Microsoft wrote an article about it here.


C# to move files in SSIS script task

Most of the time that I’m creating integration packages, I have a central working directory where all the action is taking place, at the end of the package execution is where I’ll archive files so that should they be needed to troubleshoot an issue I’ve got them in a handy place. ┬áThis is a script that I created for that process. ┬áNote that lines 7 through 19 are generated by the Visual Studio Tools for Applications in SSIS when you create the script task.
