How to find/edit SSIS packages in SQL Server 2008


In SQL Server 2008, I have created a SSIS package by using the "Import Data" wizard.  I know that this package exists because when I try to create a job, I am able to reference this SSIS package when creating one of the job steps.

However, I am unable to find this SSIS package in the Object Explorer in SQL Server Mgmt Studio.  Anyone know where I can look?

It saves it wherever you tell it to. If you saved it to a file, try looking in your My Documents directory.

You could also create another similar (same source & destination) package using the wizard and look to see where it offers to save the package by default.

If you saved to SQL Server, you are not going to find a file. In that case you can see the package by connecting to the SSIS server ("Integration Services" option). Again, creating a similar package using the wizard can show you which SQL Server  was used by default.

Thanks, it now appears the problem has to do with the service not being started and/or logins not working, so I think the problem needs to be worked from that angle with our DBA's.
