Truncate if possible

Truncate if possible

Truncate if possible

(OP)
Not sure if anyone can advise on a SSIS package that I have that joins 2 CSV files together.

In The first one I have a Custid of 11003349270
In the second file I have Custid of 3349270

The second file will always be like this the last 7 digits of the first file custid.

In my SSIS I have them with 2 flat file sources, 2 sorts which then merge join and then creates a flat file destination. It is falling on the 2 custid codes being different. I have no other way to match the two files other than the custid,

Have you any idea how I can truncate the File1 CustID field to the last 7 digits in the SSIS package

Any ideas please. Thanks

RE: Truncate if possible

Hi,

You can put the data into staging tables then in file one you can take the right 7 characters to match to file 2:

CODE --> sql

Select right(columnName,7) from tableName 

Thanks
Michael

RE: Truncate if possible

Glad you got a solution.

Thank you for the star.
