If you had saved it in SQL Server you can restore it from a recent MSDB backup.

The DTS packages are kept in a table called sysdtspackages.  

As to how you restore it, it really depends.  For example we use Red Gate SQL Backup and SQL Data Compare we can use those tools to compare and copy the missing rows from the backup.

If all you have is MS backup than you will have to restore the whole MSDB database as a new database called say MSDB_Old.  You can then copy the missing row(s) from the sysdtspackages in MSDB_Old to MSDB.

I would appreciate if you or somebody can explain me the process in detail...as I am not following the above steps esp. :

"If all you have is MS backup than you will have to restore the whole MSDB database as a new database called say MSDB_Old.  You can then copy the missing row(s) from the sysdtspackages in MSDB_Old to MSDB."

Thanks.

Ok, it does not look like anyone can help you, so let me try.  Do you know how to restore from a backup?  If not ask your DBA to restore your last MSDB backup before you deleted the DTS package as a database called MSDB_Old.

You are nearly out of luck.

If you are using SQL Server 2000, you may be able to recover it from the Transaction log using some third party tool such as:
