tMSSqlOutputBulk Standard properties

These properties are used to configure tMSSqlOutputBulk running in the Standard Job framework.

The Standard tMSSqlOutputBulk component belongs to the Databases family.

The component in this framework is available in all Talend products.

Information noteNote: This component is a specific version of a dynamic database connector. The properties related to database settings vary depending on your database type selection. For more information about dynamic database connectors, see DB Generic components.
Information noteNote: When building a Job as an OSGI Bundle for ESB, MS SQL Server drivers jtds and mssql-jdbc used by the SQL Server components are not included in the build artifact. To run the artifact in Talend Runtime, you need to deploy the drivers manually by copying the drivers to the <TalendRuntimePath>/lib folder and restart Talend Runtime.

Basic settings


Select the desired database type from the list and click Apply.

Property type

Either Built-in or Repository .

  • Built-in: No property data stored centrally.
  • Repository: Select the repository file in which the properties are stored. The fields that follow are completed automatically using the data retrieved.

File Name

Name of the file to be generated.

Information noteNote: This file can be on the same machine as the database server resides or on another machine. If the file is on the same machine as the database server resides, fill the path to the file in the form prompted in the field; if the file is on another machine, fill the universal naming convention (UNC) name (that is, \\{Servername}\{Sharename}\{Path}\{Filename}) of the file in this field. In the second case, you need to have the permission to write the file. See Bulk importing to SQL Server from a remote data file for related information.


Select this check box to add the new rows at the end of the records.

Schema and Edit Schema

A schema is a row description. It defines the number of fields (columns) to be processed and passed on to the next component. When you create a Spark Job, avoid the reserved word line when naming the fields.

Built-In: You create and store the schema locally for this component only.

Repository: You have already created the schema and stored it in the Repository. You can reuse it in various projects and Job designs.

When the schema to be reused has default values that are integers or functions, ensure that these default values are not enclosed within quotation marks. If they are, you must remove the quotation marks manually.

For more information, see Retrieving table schemas.

Click Edit schema to make changes to the schema. If the current schema is of the Repository type, three options are available:

  • View schema: choose this option to view the schema only.

  • Change to built-in property: choose this option to change the schema to Built-in for local changes.

  • Update repository connection: choose this option to change the schema stored in the repository and decide whether to propagate the changes to all the Jobs upon completion.

    If you just want to propagate the changes to the current Job, you can select No upon completion and choose this schema metadata again in the Repository Content window.

Advanced settings

Row separator

String (ex: "\n"on Unix) to distinguish rows.

Field separator

Character, string or regular expression to separate fields.

Include header

Select this check to include the column header.


Select the encoding from the list or select Custom and define it manually. This field is compulsory for DB data handling.

tStaCatcher statistics

Select this check box to collect log data at the component level.

Global Variables

Global Variables 

NB_LINE: the number of rows processed. This is an After variable and it returns an integer.

ERROR_MESSAGE: the error message generated by the component when an error occurs. This is an After variable and it returns a string. This variable functions only if the Die on error check box is cleared, if the component has this check box.

A Flow variable functions during the execution of a component while an After variable functions after the execution of the component.

To fill up a field or expression with a variable, press Ctrl+Space to access the variable list and choose the variable to use from it.

For more information about variables, see Using contexts and variables.


Usage rule

This component is to be used along with tMSSqlBulkExec component. Used together they offer gains in performance while feeding an MSSql database.
