FIX: SSIS package that contains German umlauts fails on execution after Incremental Package Deployment in SQL Server 2016 or 2017

Applies to: SQL Server 2016 DeveloperSQL Server 2016 EnterpriseSQL Server 2016 Enterprise Core


Assume that you have a Microsoft SQL Server 2016 or 2017 Integration Services (SSIS) package that contains German umlaut (ä, ö, ü) characters in the name of the task or the table that the package references. In this scenario, when you run Incremental Package Deployment for the SSIS package, you may notice that the deployment is successful. But when you try to run the package directly from the SSIS catalog, you may receive an error message that resembles the following:

PackageName:Error: Executing the query QueryStatement failed with the following error: "Incorrect syntax near '¼'.". Possible failure reasons: Problems with the query, "ResultSet" property not set correctly, parameters not set correctly, or connection not established correctly.

PackageName:The task, TaskName, failed.


This issue is fixed in the following cumulative updates for SQL Server:

       Cumulative Update 1 for SQL Server 2017

       Cumulative Update 5 for SQL Server 2016 SP1
