Hi I have a DTS package that is scheduled to run on a server every hour. The package got deleted accidently and I created it again from a backup. I fixed all the file pointers and ran the package. The pacakge runs, but only three steps actually get completed. for the rest it just says

"Step '' was not executed".

If I run the steps one by one, they run fine. I started logging the result and was able to get one error which I fixed. But now The log doesn't get any error. but still those steps are not run.

anyone who would know what the problem could be?

here is the log out put:

Very odd.. .try this
create a new package

open the old package and start copying the steps one at a time into the new package.
and of course re-linking the flow steps.

it may be possible to just delete the flow arrows and re-create them too, give it a try.

hmm...I tried creating precedence arrows again but still the same.

I would try creating a new package from scratch, but that would be my last resort cause there is a lot of transformation in the tasks.

thanks.

go to workflow properties and make sure "disable this step is not checked."

try this too make a copy of this .. strip out everything except for one of the data pump tasks

and execute it ..
maybee you can make a bunch of little packages out of your big one that will work..

i think that the file you restored is corrupted in some way

data pump tasks are very touchy ..

I right click on a selected workflow item i.e. my 'On success' and 'On completion' and check properties. I cannot see a checkbox or something where we can disable the step. Same with my transoformation tasks.

Maybe I am missing where this flag is set, can you specify if I am not looking at the correct place?

ok the answer I accepted actually guided me in the right direction.

What happened was that all the workflow was screwed.

When I went to see the workflow properties of a task, I came to know that all other tasks are defined as precedence to it. Hence creating a cycle for all tasks thus none would get executed.

I fixed the workflow precedence and it is working fine now.

thanks a lot for the help.

Excellent ...

probably a corruption problem ...

Glad you were able to resolve it.

I have seen other similar problems that the package had to be recreated to fix
