SQLServer 7 DTS calling from proc

So I have a DTS package which works fine from Enterprise Manager. I am trying to call from a stored proc. It all seems to execute ok (no return errors) but the package is not executing.

All permissions and file locations are fine. I've stripped the proc code down to this and running in QueryAnalyser which is also not executing...

DECLARE @errDesc VARCHAR(1000)

exec master.dbo.sp_OACreate 'DTS.Package', @objPackage OUTPUT
exec master.dbo.sp_OAMethod @objPackage, 'LoadFromSQLServer' , null, @ServerName = 'VME44WS45', @Flags = 256, @PackageName = 'DTS__PLclosesIn'
exec master.dbo.sp_OAMethod @objPackage, 'Execute'
exec master.dbo.sp_OAMethod @objPackage, 'Uninitialize'
exec master.dbo.sp_OADestroy @objPackage

Any ideas?
Thanks,
S

HI

try putting your loadfromsqlserver command into a string first with all the required variables and then executing it - this always works for me

eg:

declare @cmd varchar(500), @objPackage int
SET @Cmd = 'LoadFromSQLServer("VME44WS45", "", "", 256, "", , , "DTS__PLclosesIn")'
exec master.dbo.sp_OACreate 'DTS.Package', @objPackage OUTPUT
exec master.dbo.sp_OAMethod @objPackage, @Cmd, NULL
exec master.dbo.sp_OAMethod @objPackage, 'Execute'

This is kind of a lousy method of doing it.

Why don't you just use XP_CMDSHELL and DTSRUN to execute the package????

I need to call a different package depending on parameters sent to the stored proc.
Can I still do this with xp_cmdshell?

OK I can execute the DTS with xp_cmdshell but am getting an error:

Error string:  Error opening datafile: Access is denied.

I'm in QueryAnalyser logged in as sa (as would be in EM - where the file is accessed), and running the command with /E

Nearly there!

All sorted now.

Had to change the SQL server startup account.

Yes, you should make sure the SQLServer account and the agent account startup with Domain admin accounts (if your're on a domain) or local admin accounts....

So did you get this to work?
