Q about Data Flow Sources and ODBC

Hi,

after adding a "Data Flow Task", I would like to connect to an ODBC source but I can't seem to find an option for adding an ODBC data source.  How do I do that?

I see the usual suspects (i.e. Excel Source, DataReader Source, OLE DB Source, etc) but no ODBC.

Thanks

Most of the ODBC sources/functionality have been removed from SSIS. Microsoft is trying to force users to switch to OLEDB.

You can still use ODBC but most of the stuff has to be done using scripting.

Ugh...that bites.  By scripting, I suspect that you mean ActiveX scripts?  If so, do you happened to have an example of how to do that?

Yes I mean ActiveX scripting. Unfortunately I do not have an example..

for all it's worth, I have created the odbc connection using the import/export wizard, saved the package as a dtsx file and then opened it up using VS.  I think the provider needs to be .Net Providers\Odbc Data Provider.
