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.

If you don't already have a table called BigBangEpisodes in your current database, run the SQL script in the folder above in Management Studio to generate one.

Create a package called Big Bang which loops over the CSV files in the above folder, importing each into the above table to get:

Final table

The first 3 episodes from the final table, in alphabetical title order.

You'll need at some stage to create an expression for the ConnectionString property of the flat file connection.  Note: you're not allowed to use the MultiFlatFile connection - that would be cheating!

When you've got this working, close the package down.
