Create a package called Prehistoric Enumeration, and within this a source linked to the dinosaurs workbook in the above folder.

Dinosaurs list

The start of the list of dinosaurs in the Excel workbook.

Add a Row Sampling transformation and two Union All destinations to create this package:

Final package importing data

We send the 5 sampled rows down the left pipe, and all of the others down the right pipe.  Only include the dinosaur name, its period and its diet.

 

Add data viewers to each pipe so that you can see what's happening:

Data viewer for sampled data

This data viewer, for example, is showing the 5 randomly selected rows (don't forget that yours will select different rows).

 

Close this package down.
