The Informix Destination Component is an SSIS Data Flow Component, which connects to an Informix database and bulk loads data into Informix database tables. It is much faster than the standard loading using the OLE DB Destination. The configuration parameters are provided in the standard data flow destination component dialog. The component requires installation of the IBM Data Server Runtime Client.



    Use the parameters below to set up the component.


    Select an existing ADO.NET IBM Informix .NET Data Provider connection manager, or click <New connection...> to create a new connection manager.

    Specify the destination database table where the data is to be loaded.

    How to modify the destination table dynamically at runtime

    The destination table is available in the data flow properties list. Follow these steps to set up an expression:

    • Right-click on the data flow canvas and select the Properties menu.
    • Scroll down and find the property named like [Informix Destination].[DestinationTable]. This is the property containing the destination table.
    • Scroll down and find the Expressions property. Set up your expression to modify the statement dynamically.


    • To test the performance of the Informix Destination component against the standard OLEDB Destination, see this package. You must create a TEST_TABLE table with the following columns:
      • col1 INTEGER
      • col2 DATE
      • col3 FLOAT
      • col4 NVARCHAR (250)
      • col5 NVARCHAR (250)
      • col6 DECIMAL (16)
      The NumberOfRows variable controls the number of rows inserted.
