Alternate Title: Copying an Oracle 10G XE Table to SQL 2005 Using VS 2005 and SSIS

Data Transformation Services (DTS) which came with MS SQL Server 7.0 has now emerged as SQL Server Integration Services in MS SQL 2005 Server, an enterprise quality ETL (extraction, transformation, and load) program.  DTS as implemented in SQL 2000 was limited in its tasks and transformations.  The graphic user interface gave the package the required functionality by integrating workflow process with the integrate dataflow.  The Control and Script support by VBA were also limited.

SSIS is now a full blown service offering a complete solution featuring extensibility, a .Net interface to designing packages, a great number of tasks, transformations, logic, security, management, and improved deployment.  As you will see in this tutorial, you will encounter a multitude of wizards to get you to the intended goal.  However, going from DTS to SSIS for designing packages requires skills that may take time to get used to.  This tutorial is written in a minimalist style so that you will not be taken through hyper jumps unless that is absolutely needed.

Scope of this tutorial

Using the VS 2005 IDE a Business Intelligence Project will be created.  Using an Integration Services Project template, a single table from the Oracle 10G XE database will be copied to a database on the SQL 2005 Server which will be created by an SSIS task.  This step-by-step tutorial shows you how this may be achieved.

The Oracle 10G XE server, the MS SQL2005 server and the Visual Studio 2005 are all on the same machine running on the XP Professional Media Center Edition operating system.

Figure 1 shows the "Departments" table on the HR database in Oracle 10G XE that will be copied to the SsisEditor database created for this exercise on the MS SQL 2005 Server.  This table has 27 rows and 4 columns.
