Script Component Transformation in SSIS

This article shows you how to use Script Component in SSIS to transform a database column.

Assumption: You have at least Visual Studio 2013 with SQL Server Data Tool installed.

Scenario: Appending a “1” in all the product number and store in a new table.

1.      Create an Integration Services Project in Visual Studio 2015.

You can also use VS 2013


2.      Drag the Data Flow Task to the Control Flow.


3.      Double click the Data Flow Task. Drag the ADO.NET to Data Flow.


4.      Double click to data source to point to the database. In this example I used Northwind database.




5.      Drag the Script Component to Data Flow. Select Transformation then link the ADO.NET Source (blue color arrow) to it.


6.      Double click the Script Component to open the Script Transformation Editor.

7.      Create a Connection Managers. In this example, I name in DWConnection. You need to use this name in your code later.


8.      In the Input Column I choose ProductID and ProductIDNew. I created another new column in the Products table. Realize two things here.

a.      The Usage Type for ProductIDNew is ReadWrite.

b.      The Input name is Input 0.


9.      Go to Script and click the Edit Script… button.


10.   Insert the code below.

#region Namespaces

using System;

using System.Data;

using System.Data.SqlClient;

using Microsoft.SqlServer.Dts.Pipeline.Wrapper;

using Microsoft.SqlServer.Dts.Runtime.Wrapper;



/// <summary>

/// This is the class to which to add your code.  Do not change the name, attributes, or parent

/// of this class.

/// </summary>


public class ScriptMain : UserComponent



    IDTSConnectionManager100 connMgr;

    SqlConnection sqlConn;

    SqlCommand sqlCmd;

    SqlParameter sqlParam;


    public override void AcquireConnections(object Transaction)


        connMgr = this.Connections.DWConnection;

        sqlConn = (SqlConnection)connMgr.AcquireConnection(null);



    public override void PreExecute()




         * Add your code here




    public override void PostExecute()




         * Add your code here




    public override void Input0_ProcessInputRow(Input0Buffer Row)



         * Add your code here


        string strTemp = Row.ProductID.ToString();

        strTemp = strTemp + “1”;

        Row.ProductIDNew = int.Parse(strTemp);





11.   Save and close the script editor.

12.   Drag ADO.NET Destination to Data Flow.

13.   Connect the Script Component to ADO.NET Destination.

14.   Configure the ADO.NET Destination to point to the destination table (for this example the Products2 table structure is the same as the Products1 tables, these are the tables that I created beforehand).

15.   Mapping the columns.



Now you can test the project (click Start).
