Excellent tool, well done! From my experieence, SCD always performs very slow if there are more than 9000 rows in the dimension to process. I have therefore had to customise it to use Conditional Split and Lookup tasks instead. For deletion, I have had to use EXCEPT() in the Execute SQL Task. I found out about this Kimball SCD later and it has simplied and sped up the warehouse development.

This is by far the best SSIS component that I have downloaded from CodePlex. I especially like the Auditing fields.

We're under the gun to complete our warehouse and have a very small team (2). This component saved tons of work and consulting expense. All we need now is an SCD2 range lookup transform for fact loads!

This is an excellent, stable and high performing component. If you are a follower of the Kimball dimensional methodology, then this is definately a time saving component for you. And, it will keep you honest at the same time by making you think about auditing and providing all the details you need to store in the Kimball recommended audit database. And, the forum feedback is always timely.

Opera does not support ClickOnce X
To install this application, save it and then open it. Opening it directly from Opera will not work correctly.
