I split the DTS package into two packages. The first one executes the second one IF there are records in the temporary table.
I have a C# program that sends an e-mail with an Excel attachment. The Excel file is populated with the results of a SQL stored procedure before the e-mail program is executed. The entire process is in a DTS package (populate a temporary table, export the table to Excel, then send the e-mail). It is possible that the stored procedure will return no results, in which case the Excel file will not be populated.
I'd like to know whether it is possible (and if so, how) to add some code to my e-mail program that will count the number of populated rows in the Excel file and if that number is <2 (the header row will always be populated), to quit and not send the e-mail.
An alternative would be for the DTS package to terminate if the stored procedure returns 0 records.
