How to Reject Already Loaded Files and Load Only New Files in SSIS Package - SQL Server Integration Services (SSIS) Tutorial


We get the files from our client that we need to load on daily basis to SQL Server Table. Sometime there are chances that the client might provide the same file again. In that case we want to move that file to Rejected Folder and don't want to load. If any new file will be received in the folder, we will load that after confirming the file is not loaded already.

What you will learn in this video

  1. How to read the files from Folder by using For-each Loop Container
