SQL Server Snap Pack

Overview

Use the SQL Server Snap Pack to connect to your SQL Server database and achieve read and write access to its objects. 

Use Snaps in this Snap Pack to:

  • Get a list of tables in a database.
  • Lookup records in the target table and returns a selected set of fields.
  • Fetch data from a database.
  • Execute SQL statements to delete, update, merge or insert data into a specified table.
You cannot use pipeline parameters within your SQL statement. If you need to use parameters, insert a Mapper (Data) Snap before the SQL Snap and call them there. 

TIMESTAMP datatype in SQL Server is not supported. According to the Microsoft official document, "The timestamp syntax is deprecated. This feature will be removed in a future version of Microsoft SQL Server. Avoid using this feature in new development work, and plan to modify applications that currently use this feature."

The SQL Server Snaps express time up to the millisecond for date/time values, for example, 2019-11-05T00:34:55.007.
