SSIS Package Execution on SQL Server


This is going to sound really silly, but how do I execute a SSIS Package stored on the sql server?

I looked in the help and found this:

dtexec /sq pkgOne /ser productionServer

However, when I run this, I get "Could not find stored procedure 'dtexec'."

Do I need to install something, or is there something I'm missing?

Also, I created the SSIS package, but where is it hiding in the Microsoft SQL Server Management Console?

Thanks in advance!

Ah, okay, I was trying to run it from a Qry.

Excellent, that does work running it from the command line.  Seems like a backwards way of doing it, and I would have thought that you could have run it from a qry window as a sql command, but...okay.  

Now, about the second part of my question, where is the SSIS package hiding in the Microsoft SQL Server Management Console?

Do you know what directory they will be in.
indy500fanAuthor Commented:
When prompted to save them in either the File System or SQL Server, I choose SQL Server.  Will they still be in a windows directory?

From Server Management Studio:

1.  Right-click on the database that the data is being transferred from, choose Export Data

2.  Choose the data-source

3.  Choose the data-destination

4.  Choose: "Copy one or more tables or views"

5.  Check the table that I want to transfer

6.  Uncheck "Execute Immediately"

7.  Check "Save SSIS Package"

8.  Chose SQL Server
