Trying to put the final touches on a workflow I've been setting up and am running into a bit of a problem.
What I am hoping to do is as follows:
- Have an Excel spreadsheet with multiple tabs that I give to an "end user"
- Have one tab on which the end user inputs data and have another tab that has a bunch of values that are calculated based on the user input tab and some other lookups, etc.
- Have an SSIS package that imports non-blank rows from the calculated tab into a table in SQL.
The way the spreadsheet is currently set up is I have an IF check in the fields to either set them to a value or set them to nothing ('').
The problem I have is that when I do the import into SQL, the rows with '' fields are imported as empty rows, presumably because the fields aren't actually blank (they have formulas in them).
Anyone know of a way to fix / work around this? I tried changing the formulas to set the fields to #N/A instead of '', but if I do that, the import fails.
