In SQL Server Management Studio open the SQL script in the above folder and execute it to show a table of mentors for X Factor contestants:
In the UK version of the X Factor (a reality TV show) each contestant is assigned a mentor to guide them through the procedures. That's all you need to know about the show!
The idea behind this exercise is to find the contestants whose mentors don't appear in the list above, and report them as having mentor number 9 (Unknown) instead. To start, create a package called Mentors, and within this create a variable to make it easier to refer to the unknown mentor id number:
Create an integer variable, and set it to equal 9.
Create a data flow task to import the finalists from Excel, and look up for each the mentor id from the Mentor table:
What the final package could look like.
Check that in the Finalist table that each contestant has a mentor id (six of these will be 9, for Unknown), then close the package down.
