Playing with Terabytes :-D

I am working on an ODS project, ETLing millions of records, I just realized that we’ll end up (when going live) ETLing almost 2 Terabytes of data, It feels soo good, for me it is like bungee jumping, no matter how good you are prepared for it, and how safe and calculated it is, it is still an experience that will make you feel raw adrenalin pumping through your veins!

SSIS DataReader Source Task


If you‘re looking for a way to assign an expression to the SQLCommand property of the DataReader Source task , you can do that from the properties of the Data Flow task that contains the DataReader (Not the DataReader itself)

I wanted to share coz it was painful for me to figure it out!

This makes me laugh soo much:

Natasha: drop table X.
SQL server: Cannot drop the table ‘X’, because it does not exist or you do not have permission.

Natasha : create table X( x int).
SQL server : There is already an object named ‘X’ in the database.

Natasha : ok sweety, drop table X.
SQL server: Command(s) completed successfully.

Natasha: :-) No matter how stupid you can be sometime, I still love you :-)
