Readme_AWDataWarehouseRefresh Package Sample

This sample works only with SQL Server 2005 and SQL Server 2008. It will not work with any version of SQL Server earlier than SQL Server 2005.

This sample works with the SQL Server 2005 version of the AdventureWorks OLTP database. To install this database, see Sample Databases for Microsoft SQL Server 2008.

The AWDataWarehouseRefresh sample package illustrates how to create and populate user tables in the new AdvWorksDWX database, using data from the AdventureWorks database. Several Transact-SQL scripts are executed to create the tables, after which several Execute SQL tasks run to populate the tables.

Samples are provided for educational purposes only. They are not intended to be used in a production environment and have not been tested in a production environment. Microsoft does not provide technical support for these samples.

Running this sample package requires the following:

  • The sample package and data files that it uses must be installed on the local hard disk drive.
  • You must have installed and have administrative permissions on the AdventureWorks OLTP database.
  • If you intend only to run the sample package from the command line, you must install Integration Services.
  • If you intend to open the package in SSIS Designer and run the sample package, you must install Business Intelligence Development Studio.

The following files are required to run this sample package.

File Description

AWDWRefresh.dtsx

The sample package.

For more information about how to install samples, see "Installing Sample Integration Services Packages" in SQL Server Books Online.

If the samples were installed to the default location, the AWDataWarehouseRefresh sample package and data files are located in the following folder:

C:\Program Files\Microsoft SQL Server\100\Samples\Integration Services\Package Samples\AWDataWarehouseRefresh\

ms160706.note(en-us,SQL.100).gifNote:
If you changed the installation location of the project, you must modify the BasePath and DataFilePath variables in the package.

The package can be run from the command line by using the dtexec utility, or can be run in Business Intelligence Development Studio.

  1. Open a Command Prompt window.

  2. Use the Change Directory command, cd, to change the directory to C:\Program Files\Microsoft SQL Server\100\DTS\Binn, the location of dtexec.

  3. Type the following command:

    dtexec /f "C:\Program Files\Microsoft SQL Server\100\Samples\Integration Services\Package Samples\AWDataWarehouseRefresh\AWDataWarehouseRefresh\AWDWRefresh.dtsx"
    
  4. Press Enter.

For more information about how to run the package by using the dtexec utility, see the topic, "dtexec Utility", in SQL Server Books Online.

  1. Open Business Intelligence Development Studio.

  2. On the File menu, point to Open, and then click Project/Solution.

  3. Set the Files of type: to Integration Services Project Files (*.dtproj), locate the AWDataWarehouseRefreshfolder, and then double-click the file named AWDataWarehouseRefresh.dtproj.

  4. In Solution Explorer, right-click AWDWRefresh.dtsx in the SSIS Packages folder, and then click Execute Package.

The following table lists the tasks, containers, data sources and destinations, and transformations that are used within the sample.

You can browse the objects in the package by selecting any object on the Control Flow tab and then pressing SHIFT+TAB to advance through the objects one by one. You can also see a big picture of the package by clicking the four-way locator arrow at the lower right corner of the Control Flow design surface, and then positioning the view window over the package.

Because this package represents an example of a production database, there are many objects and containers, collected into logical groups. You can collapse the groups to make it easier to view the whole package, or expand a group to better see the items in a particular group. The tasks and containers in the package are listed here by their groups.
