I found the gold… no...no… I found the bug! J This mistake is because I never thought that a simple person like me, here in my small country with the name of Portugal, that sometimes people think the country is a state of Spain would found a Microsoft bug in SQL 2008 (SSIS)... ok… but let’s talk about the bug. Sorry for this introduction…
As I told you in a previous post, I’m developing a SSIS project for my master BI degree, using the new SQL 2008 CTPFebruary version. I found a bug, that I think is critical and very important.
If you already worked with SSIS 2005, you are probably familiarly with the warning messages that advise you for unused columns in your pipeline:
1. Add a dataflow “DFT TestBug” to the ControlFlow
2. Goto the dataflow created in the previous step
3. Add an OLEDB Source to get some data from AdventureWorks database:
SELECT Title, FirstName, MiddleName FROM Person.Contact
4. Add an OLEDB destination to insert the data into a #tempTable. Map the source and destination columns title and firstname and intentionally leave the column MiddleName without map.
I posted this bug in MSDN Forums
and James Thomson and Bob Bojanic kindly suggested me to submit this bug to Microsoft. I submit the bug as you can see for the link below:
