Before you can do this exercise, you'll need to download and unzip this file (if you have any problems doing this, click here for help).

You need a minimum screen resolution of about 700 pixels width to see our exercises. This is because they contain diagrams and tables which would not be viewable easily on a mobile phone or small laptop. Please use a larger tablet, notebook or desktop computer, or change your screen resolution settings.

Open the SQL script in the above folder in Management Studio and execute it.  You should be looking at an empty table:

Empty table of princesses

We'll aim to fill the table with the feisty princesses only.

Create a new package which gets its data from the Excel workbook in the above folder, then use a conditional split to divide the data into 3 streams:

Condition Send to
Feminist rating column equals Feisty The SQL Server table called Princesses
Feminist rating column is not Drippy A new flat file called Not drippy.txt
Everyone else Ignored (as indeed they should be)

Here's what the final package should look like:

Final package

The final package should look something like this.

 

Here's what the Princesses table should hold:

The princesses table

Perhaps Pocahontas should have been here too?

Test your package generates a text file of non-drippy, non-feisty princesses, then close it down.
