I have a field called something like TYPE & the values are variant in it. I want the SSIS to export the result to CSV & while exporting, if it finds the , in column TYPE only that line/value should be double quoted. Eg:

TYPE Begin Bag 1,000 mL Miscellaneous 20ml Final 2,000 mL Begin Bag 1 mL

the result should be (in the csv format exported): TYPE "Begin Bag 1,000 mL", Miscellaneous 20ml, "Final 2,000 mL", Begin Bag 1 mL

I tried using the Derived column "\""+ TYPE +"\"" but that just adds Double quotes to every value for column TYPE.

Please help!

THanks, Atulya

You should be able to use SSIS CASE syntax in your derived column node as follows:

FINDSTRING(TextLine,",",1) > 0 ? "\"" + TextLine + "\"" : TextLine

The expression basically says - if a comma is found in TextLine, THEN wrap it in double quotes ELSE just keep Textline
