I'm converting an old SQL 2000 DTS package to SQL 2012 SSIS, so we can finally retire the older server. It's just an export to a pipe delimited text file, with double quotes around the text. Because we send this export file to another company, we need the new version to be formatted exactly the same way, so they won't have to change anything on their end.

One odd thing we've noticed is that the 2000 version says it uses double quotes as the text qualifier, but not all fields are wrapped in these quotes. It looks like only strings have quotes around them, while numeric and datetime fields don't. In 2012, all fields get the double quotes around them.

Does anyone know how to make the SQL 2012 export do the same thing that the 2000 version was doing?

I guess nobody has an answer to this one. We've decided not to worry about it. We've talked to the company receiving the export file, and they're making some minor changes to accept the new format create by SQL 2012. That seems easier than spending a ton of time researching this export quirk.

Thanks anyway.
