load package from .bas file

I created a couple of dts packages at work and need to load them onto my home server for further development.

I saved the packages as visual basic .bas files, zipped them up and brouht them home.

I'm now trying to load them on my instance of sql server. I haven't done this before.

How do I load them?
Microsoft SQL Server

Ah, okay...I understand.

I'll re-save them tomorrow as structured storage files and then load as you indicated.

Are there any caveats I need to be aware of?

Thanks for your help.

I do not believe so.  I have used them, but not all that much.

Thanks for the help.

I saved the packages as .dts file and they loaded fine on my server.

Thank you.
