I have a SQL Server 2k8 with a couple of columns in few tables populated with predefined data. The predefined data is published by a 3rd party as MDB/XLS/CSV files periodically. I need to apply these updates to the corresponding columns in the tables. A simple example would be having tables for city, state and zip, which gets populated using data from a 3rd party.
To update the tables periodically, i want to run incremental updates by determining the delta and updating only those. I am thinking of writing a windows app to do this.
Are there any tools in SQL Server that allows me to do the delta between two tables and update only the delta onto the target? Does SSIS help in any way?
thanks for reading!
