I'm running a DTS package on SQL 2000 that I scheduled to run under Agent.  It still has a connection open but it isn't progressing.

If it's hung in SQLAgent, you may not be able to do anything until you stop/restart agent (even with a kill).  Take a look in the SQL Logs and see if there are any messages about non-yielding processes.

If I right click the job, what would I choose to see why it's being blocked?

I'm going to split the points on this one.  The first answer had the magic word "kill" in it.  I looked this up in books on-line and found out how to kill a process.  But, I didn't know what the hold-up was until I knew what I was looking at with the sp_who.  Incidentally, I had been using sp_who to see the job but I didn't know about the block thing.  Thanks,
