How do we extract latest data from source system

Until SQL Server 2008 is released and implemented we all have to work with various work around to retrieve only latest data from source systems.

In the previous projects I was fortunate in a way that source system was either Oracle or flat files with only changed / new data. Oracle and other major DB vendors had Change Data Capture for a long time.

SQL Server 2008 is going to provide the same feature and functionality. You can find out more about SQL Server 2008 CDC feature here.

Each source table has either CreateDate and ModifyDate column. If these columns are there we extract all the records anything greater than we have extracted last. I store last extract datetime stamp for each table in a control table, which is used within SSIS package to extract only the latest record.

I use a SP similar to the one shown below to update the control table with the last extract datetime stamp.


CREATE PROCEDURE [dbo].[uspUpdateExtractionDate] (@LoadId INT)
AS
DECLARE @VarName VARCHAR(50)
DECLARE @ObjectName VARCHAR(50)
DECLARE @VarValue VARCHAR(50)
DECLARE @Tmp TABLE (VarName VARCHAR(50),ObjectName VARCHAR(50), VarValue VARCHAR(50))
BEGIN TRY
INSERT
INTO @Tmp
SELECT 'strLastExtractDate', 'pkgStgOpportunity',CONVERT(VARCHAR(23),MAX(CreateDate),121)
FROM scbOpportunity
WHERE LoadId = @LoadId
BEGIN TRAN
DECLARE Tmp_Cursor CURSOR FOR
SELECT *
FROM @Tmp
OPEN Tmp_Cursor
FETCH NEXT FROM Tmp_Cursor INTO @VarName, @ObjectName, @VarValue
WHILE @@FETCH_STATUS = 0
BEGIN
UPDATE BISystem.dbo.ConfigVar
SET VarValue = @VarValue
WHERE VarName = @VarName
AND ObjectName = @ObjectName
FETCH NEXT FROM Tmp_Cursor INTO @VarName, @ObjectName, @VarValue
END
CLOSE Tmp_Cursor
DEALLOCATE Tmp_Cursor
COMMIT TRAN
END TRY
BEGIN CATCH
ROLLBACK TRAN
EXEC BISystem.dbo.uspLogErrorInfo
END CATCH
