Read DTS Log Status

Hi all,

I have the following code which runs a DTS package:

        Dim oPackage As DTS.Package = New DTS.Package()
        oPackage.LoadFromSQLServer( _
            ServerName:="SQLSVR1", _
            Flags:=DTS.DTSSQLServerStorageFlags.DTSSQLStgFlag_UseTrustedConnection, _
            PackageName:="CO_PRODUCT_IMPORT")
        oPackage.Execute()
        oPackage.UnInitialize()
        oPackage = Nothing

This DTS package simply imports a CSV file into an SQL Server 2000 table, appending the data onto existing data.

My question is, how can I read the DTS package log status (Success or Fail) from within my VB.NET Windows app?

I am using VS 2005 and SQL Server 2000.

Thanks.

Assuming this is DTS and not SSIS, there's a bunch of sysdts* tables in MSDB, including sysdtspackagelog and sysdtssteplog
If this is indeed DTS then I can go and dig up a view I have that lets you interrogate the logs (there's a bit of table joining required)

nmcdermaid,

This is indeed DTS. If you could provide me with those views that would be great.

For this u need to set the dts logging option

Package --> properties --> select logging tab and specify a table or text file (should be on the local drive) to log the dts activity andstores the details in the table or text file

I can't find the script and I dont have SQL 2000 installed. Luckily I think someone's already done it.
