SSIS Tip of the day

I’ve just learned a new tip about SSIS that I was not aware of. A tip that I think you all should know about,

When retrieving data via the OLE_DB connection, there are several options to how the data should be retreived. Often we just select “Table or View” option, mostly because we’re to lazy to write up the SQL that is needed for the operation.


Just be aware that when you do that, the SSIS engine will use the command OPENROWSET to get the data, but when you’re typing up the correct SQL to get the data and using the “SQL command” the SSIS engine will use the faster and more optimized SP_Executesql.
