hi
i have a dts package that ive migrated over to SQL 2005 and use it via the legacy section.

But id like to schedule it via SQL Agent in 2005.

Ive looked at the normal way you could schedule a job through the DTS package but of course think this is not possible via SQL 2005

Is there a way to do it ?

Hi thanks

Im not sure this will work
The server is only SQL 2005.
The DTS package was imported into SQL 2005 and runs in the legacy section of SQL 2005.

Your article mentions this is a tool with service pack for SQL 2k.

it is what used by 100s DBAs - > create sql agent job -> create step ->
read
dtsrun

test something like below code in SSMS: - and then copy it into step -> schedule the job -> run (if it is ok) -post result

declare      @Cmd                  varchar (200)
select      @Cmd = 'dtsrun /Syourservername /E  /NyourDTSpackName'
exec      master..xp_cmdshell @Cmd
