SSIS Null value for Integers

Hi ,

I am trying to load data from a flatfile to SQL Table. I have a condition where if there are blank values for fields then I have to upload null in the tables and if there are values then i need to convert them to integer and upload to the tables.

I was using data conversion task but can any one suggest how to handle the null value in derived column.

Thanks, Kannan

I guess you can use the expression in the derived column something like

TRIM([YOURSTRINGFIELD]) == "" ? NULL(DT_NUMERIC, «precision», «scale») : (DT_NUMERIC, «precision», «scale»)[YOURSTRINGFIELD]

There's a new way to format code on the site - the red speech bubble logo will automatically format T-SQL for you. The original code box is still there for XML, etc. More details here.
