I created a DTS package that simply select values from a table and exports them to a .txt file.

The package runs just fine if I execute the package manually.

However, when i set it up as a schedule job, the job fails;  the job log details are as follows...

The job failed.  The Job was invoked by Schedule 71 (Horizon --> Midas \ sis$).  The last step to run was step 1 (Horizon --> Midas \ sis$).

You are getting the error.  Error opening datafile: Access is denied.     Most likely the user that the job is running as does not have permissions to something that you have permissions to.

the owner of the job is the domain admin - the job is being run as the domain admin manually - any thoughts?

The error you provided shows that in step DTSStep_DTSDataPumpTask_1.   There is an error "Error opening datafile: Access is denied."  

Try logging in as the user that the package is running as when it's a job and run it manually.   Otherwise, double check the files that are used in that step and verify that the user has permissions to the server/folder/file to do what needs to be done.

delted and recreated the dts task using the sql account for db connectivity and the domain admin as job owner...

It was set up this way previously - no matter it works now

Thanks,
