DTS Packages from desktop

215 Views
Last Modified: 2013-11-30
hey folks,
 There's a customer that is still using SQL Server 2000 with a lot of DTS Packages.

I seem to remember that I used to have a desktop console that would show all the DTS Packages on that server and I could allow the end user to run it there.

Any ideas?

Hope you are referring to Data Transformation Services (DTS) tool in SQL Server 2000.
Is that what you are referring to..

You can't get that out of the DTS tool.
And you can write some basic application to achieve this one..
