DTS Package Error Handling

Posted on 2006-10-25

I am writing a vbscript active script to generate some files.  I would like to stop the creation of file when it encounters an error. Are there any examples of that anybody can share with me?  Right now what happens is that it creates the file (probably in the middle) and then stops the DTS package...  I would like to stop if from creating the file at all...  I may have to move the save file code to somewhere else...

I think you can set up a workflow "failure" step and go from that step on failure and take action as needed. Sorry I cannot even open my old dts packages since upgrading to 2005.

ok.  I have a sendmail task if the active x script fails but I want to fail the dTS package if certain error occurs.

I suggest deleting the file in the process that fires when it fails... there should be a way to do that in activex. You may have to create a DOS command and RUN it or something like that.

If there is an error the file is not created.

That is not a bad idea to delete the file when an error occurs.  Any examples of vbscript in doing that?

set oFile = oFSO.GetFile(sFilename)
oFile.Delete(True)

I think this does it

wrong ... check this out

(without access to dts any more it is hard to help.. but for that same reason, I know there are not many dts guys left out there so I am just trying to help as much as I can)

Or simply:

Dim FSO
Set FSO = CreateObject("Scripting.FileSystemObject")
FSO.DeleteFile "YourFileNameGoesHere", True
Set FSO = Nothing
