I have designed a DTS package which extracts a query into an excel file.
It uses a query that changes dynamically based on user preferences, so I have used the dynamic property SourceSQLStatement to feed the exact query into the DTS package.
The issue, however, is that the query can be run a multitude of ways, and return a different number of columns each time. On one run, the query could return a 3 column record-set, on the next it could return an 8 column record-set.
Currently, the DTS package errors on each attempt because it expects a certain column set.
Is there a way to tell it to auto-map the columns at the time it executes? I could not find a dynamic property which did that.
I would hate to have to set up a different DTS package for each possible column set.
I am sure I am missing something.
Thanks in advance.
