You are implementing the indexing strategy for a fact table in a data warehouse. The fact table is named Quotes. The table has no indexes and consists of seven columns:

  • [ID]
  • [QuoteDate]
  • [Open]
  • [Close]

You work as a database administrator at ABC.com. The ABC.com network consists of a single domain named ABC.com. ABC.com makes use of Microsoft SQL Server 2012 in their environment. You have recently created an SQL Server Integration Services (SSIS) project catalog that contains two Environments. A single Environment Variable, named ConnectionString, of type string is specified by each environment. The project also has a project Connection Manager configured to link up with the data warehouse. You have been instructed to make sure that deployed packages are executed using any of the specified Environments. Which of the following suitably describes an Environment Variable?
An environment variable specifies the data that will be used by a package.
An environment variable can be used to manage Integration Services objects in the catalog.
An environment variable defines a literal value that can be assigned to a parameter during package execution.
An environment variable allows you to use folders to organize your projects and environments.
An environment variable is a container of variables that can be referenced by Integration Services projects.
You are implementing a SQL Server Integration Services (SSIS) package that loads data hosted in a SQL Azure database into a data warehouse. The source system contains redundant or inconsistent data. When the package finds invalid data, the row containing the invalid data must be omitted but it must also be written to a text file for further analysis. You need to establish the best technique to log these invalid rows while keeping the amount of development effort to a minimum. What should you do?
