I can't seem to find the DTS option which in SQL2000 was listed right under the Databases tree in SQL Enterprise Manager.
Where did it go?
Thank you,

One other question...does that mean the tool is a legacy one where we should be using a more modern version of the DTS?

Yeah DTS is now considered a legacy product - still supported as people have so many packages that they will still need, but the replacement is SSIS.

(from http://www.microsoft.com/sql/prodinfo/overview/whats-new-in-sqlserver2005.mspx)
Integration Services

SQL Server 2005 includes a redesigned enterprise data extraction, transformation, and loading (ETL) platform, called SQL Server Integration Services (SSIS). SSIS enables organizations to more easily integrate and analyze data from multiple heterogeneous information sources. By analyzing data across an array of operational systems, organizations may gain a competitive edge through a holistic understanding of their business.

Enterprise ETL Platform

This new platform is the successor to the popular feature in SQL Server 2000 called Data Transformation Services (DTS). SSIS is completely new for SQL Server 2005. SSIS provides the breadth of features and very high-scale performance that is necessary to build enterprise-class ETL applications. SSIS is fully programmable, embeddable, and extensible—characteristics that make it an ideal ETL platform.

Thanks again! I am downloading SP2 for SQL Server 2005 to get the "Business Intelligence Development Studio " interface for Visual Studio to develop packages for SQL2005, which may be manipulated by SSIS. Now we're playing with fire!
