The problem is that it’s not entirely intuitive; the learning curve is steep. But you really shouldn’t let that stop you from trying it out: once you’ve got the basics, it’s really quite accessible. In this series of posts, we’ll do some basic, step-by-step data manipulation with SSIS, starting with importing data from a CSV file into a SQL Server 2008 database.
