SET @command_line = ' /Ser SRV21  /U "***" /P "*****" /SQ "Archive Data" /Set "Account_Number":"8"="' + @account_number + '"

/Set "File_Name":"8"="C:\Inetpub\wwwroot\output\' + @account_number + '.mdb" /Set "Begin_Date":"7"="' +

I wear a lot of hats...

"The solutions and answers provided on Experts Exchange have been extremely helpful to me over the last few years. I wear a lot of hats - Developer, Database Administrator, Help Desk, etc., so I know a lot of things but not a lot about one thing. Experts Exchange gives me answers from people who do know a lot about one thing, in a easy to use platform." -Todd S.

how are you converting the DTS?

more info needed for informed advice.

  With the above command i pass three parameters account number, begin and end date . I managed to get the correct format using the Ececute Pakage utility with SSIS .

This is the updated command line string

/DTS "\File System\Archive Data" /SERVER SRV21 /MAXCONCURRENT " -1 " /CHECKPOINTING OFF  /REPORTING EW  /SET "Account_Number";"'00001'" /SET "File_Name";"' C:\Inetpub\wwwroot\output\'" /SET "Begin_Date";"'04/03/2006'" /SET "End_Date";"'04/04/2006'"

I am no expert but,

Erm, not entirely sure, but there are already some suggestion in the error description that you posted, please let know if you have tried it,


1. Prefix Account_Number with your package name? For example, package name is ABC, do a "ABC.Account_Number"?
2. Prepend "\package" to the pacakage path?

Have you tried the above?
