SSIS Integration Services | Variables in script exercise | Use a Script Task to check if too many bake-off series exist
This exercise is provided to allow potential course delegates to choose the correct Wise Owl Microsoft training course, and may not be reproduced in whole or in part in any format without the prior written consent of Wise Owl.
You can learn how to do this exercise on the relevant Wise Owl classroom training course (sadly for the moment only in the UK).
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.
Create a new package called Stop Baking, and add a variable to it:
This variable will hold the number of GBBO series.
Add a data flow task to read in the rows from the workbook in the above folder, and count them using a Row Count transform:
Count how many series there have been, and store the results in your NumberSeries variable.
Now add a script task to check the value of this variable:
You'll need to pass the NumberSeries variable to your script task.
The script task should display one of the following two messages, depending on whether the total number of series made is up to 10 or more than 10:
|Up to 10 series||More than 10 series|
Add another row to your workbook and check that you then get a different message, then close your package down.
