Consuming Sharepoint Lists via OData with SSIS

We recently needed to bring data from a Sharepoint list in to SSIS for use in an attribute lookup for a cube dimension.

As stated before, we don't care for third party dependencies or external non-standard assemblies of any sort in our packages. That means, as usual, we'll be writing a script component to take care of getting our data out of Sharepoint.

First, navigate to the list you are interested in and export it as a data feed
