_x003C_none_x003E_ | Flat File Connections

SSIS_FLATFILEDESTINATION

The following string “_x003C_none_x003E_” may be included in the output file.  If you are receiving this error or other strange flat file results when outputting xml results; it may be due to the values you have set in the flat file connection properties.

 

SSIS_GOTOPROPERTIES

 

1. Right Click on the connection manager icon and inspect the properties of the “Flat File Connection Manager”

The properties you need to review are:
1. HeaderRowDelimiter
2. Text Qualifier

Change your settings to match the ones below by selecting
1. {CR} for the header row delimiter
2. Clear the contents of the Text Qualifier
SSIS_FLATFILECONNECTIONPROPERTIESSET

 

You should not have values like these images show:
SSIS_FLATFILEPROPBAD1

SSIS_FLATFILEPROPBAD2

Two simple Steps

1-> create a variable “Test_qualifier” with empty string.
2->Go to Flat file connection Manager ;right click and select Properties; click on expressions and assign the above Variable to Text Qualifier Property.

It worked like a charm for me.

Had this issue getting a _x0022_ instead of a double quote character as a text qualifier in my output .csv file. Went into bids and changed the value in the properties dialog Text Qualifier field from the hex value to “. Re-committed to version control and deployed to production. Worked like a charm. Thanks for putting this post out there it really helped me!

Thanks,
Mike
