For Loop Container – SSIS 2012 Tutorial Videos

This Video Tutorial illustrates how to use For Loop Container to implement a simple loop structure.

For Loop Continaer provides a simple loop structure such as programming languages. It contains Init Expression, Eval Expreseeion, and Assign Expression. These three expressions makes the three main part of loop structure in programming languages as well, InitExpression is for initializing the loop. EvalExpression is for checking the condition for continue or exit from the loop, and Assign Expression if for setting the iteration seed based on expression.

As a sample in this video you will see that we use For Loop Container to loop through all integer dividers of a number. We use this structure to create a banding structure for time dimension which contains hours, minutes and seconds. In this sample we will create banding on Hours, which means banding on 2,3,4,6,8, and 12 hours duration will be created dynamically. same method can be used for banding of minutes and seconds.
