Release Notes

SQL Server can use the MERGE statement to perform an upsert operation efficiently, by batching rows of data instead of processing rows one at a time. However, Integration Services does not currently provide a built-in destination component that supports the use of MERGE. This sample demonstrates one way to encapsulate MERGE functionality within an Integration Services data flow component.

Reviews for this release

MSI setup exits by itself in the start. I do see progress bar and then it goes away without displaying any errors. I have Windows 7 Enterprise and SQL Server 2012 & SQL Server 2008.

Near every edit results in validation errors where the properties can no longer be edited via the normal interface, and the advanced editor does not appear to allow modification of the properties causing the validation issues, so you have to delete the component and start over again.

Pragmaticworks has similar production ready component call Upsert Destination. It supports 4 different type of Upsert and planning to add Type2 Upsert very soon.

It could be a very good component, but it doesn't work.

The concept is very good. Unfortunatly at this point, the component is in beta phase and got many errors. Hope the component will be developed finished.
