Derived Column Transform RRS feed

  • Question

  • Using Visual Studio 2008, I am trying to pull "MemberID" from the root node of an xml file(sample below) and put it into a table.  I'm using an "XML Task" to put it into a variable.  The variable will then be used by the Derived Column to put MemberID in table(Later, I need all this to be in a ForEachLoop to enumerate through several hundred files. For now, I just want to get the Derived Column working.)  I've attached pics of my "Data Flow" and the resulting table. The problem is that I get "MS.Internal.Xml.XPath.XPathSelectionIterator"  as the value of my derived column instead of getting the "MemberID" value as shown below.

    A sample of my XML is:

    <?xml version="1.0" encoding="UTF-8"?>







            <PointName>Risk Assessment Completion</PointName>





    Any suggestions on how to correct this?

  • Hello,

    Thank you for your post.

    I am afraid that the issue is out of support range of VS General Question forum which mainly discusses WPF & SL designer, Visual Studio Guidance Automation Toolkit, Developer Documentation and Help System and Visual Studio Editor.

    I am moving your question to the moderator forum ("Where is the forum for..?"). The owner of the forum will direct you to a right forum.

    Best regards,

  • I figured this out.  The XPathOperation box in XML Task Editor must be set to "Values."
