-Edit- Right now, whatever string I put in returns a 0, even if the email format itself is correct. The syntax for LIKE is not the same as (and way less powerful than) regular expressions.
See also SQL Server Regular expressions in T-SQL But you can make the hop to . You can instantiate a CREATE FUNCTION Valid Email Format ( @Email varchar(100) ) RETURNS bit AS BEGIN DECLARE @pattern varchar(4000) SET @pattern = '[a-z A-Z0-9_\-] @([a-z A-Z0-9_\-] \.)

Check constraints are used to make certain that a statement about the data is true for all rows in a table.
The unique constraint ensures that no two rows have the same values in their columns.
Before creating a failover cluster, we recommend that you validate your hardware (servers, networks, and storage) by running the Validate a Configuration Wizard.
You can validate either an existing cluster or one or more servers that are not yet clustered.
When you validate an instance, Biz Talk Server displays a dialog box in which you specify the configuration to be validated in that instance, including separators and the syntax identifier.
Using SSIS and some error tables seems to me a bit inefficient since it looks as if I only can get one column checked at a time and the error handling (especially the column lockup in SSIS is clumsy at best).
I would prefer to have each record processed and right away have an overview of all errors that are in that record, so that I can provide a feedback of all issues at once to the people providing the data for import.
To do so, you use the XML Tool extensions to Biz Talk Server in the Visual Studio environment.
The instance that you validate can be a single transaction set (without interchange and group headers), an interchange with a single transaction set (with interchange and group headers), or a complete batched interchange with multiple transaction sets (with interchange and group headers).
SSIS is, indeed, clunky when it comes to importing data for all the processing prowess that it seems to tout.
