Columns Page

The Columns page of the Bing Ads Destination Component allows you to map the columns from upstream components to the Bing Ads fields.

SSIS Bing Ads Destination - Columns

The Columns page contains a grid that consists of four columns as shown below:

  • Input Column: You can select an input column from an upstream component for the corresponding Bing Ads Field.
  • Bing Ads Field: The field that you are writing data to.
  • Data Type: This column indicates the type of value for the current field.
  • Unmap: This column can be used to unmap the field from the upstream input column, or otherwise it can be used to map the field to an upstream input column by matching its name if the field is not currently mapped.

Error Handling Page

The Error Handling page allows you to specify how errors should be handled when they happen.

SSIS Bing Ads Destination - Error Handling

There are three options available:

  1. Fail on error
  2. Redirect rows to error output
  3. Ignore error

When the Redirect rows to error output option is selected, rows that failed to write to Bing Ads will be redirected to the 'Error Output' output of the Destination Component. As indicated in the screenshot below, the blue output connection represents rows that were successfully written, and the red 'Error Output' connection represents erroneous rows. The 'ErrorMessage' output column found in the 'Error Output' may contain the error message that was reported by Bing Ads or the component itself.
