Can SSIS package run in MS SQL 2008 express edition?

I have recently created an SSIS package using SQL 2008 R2 developer edition and I need to run it on one of our clients on a daily schedule. The client is using SQL 2008 express edition. The package has a really simple structure. An SQL command and insert from source to destination table.

Is it possible to schedule jobs on an MS SQL Server express edition to run an SSIS package? Are there any limitations to consider?

Thank you

Hi,

I don't think you'll be able to set up a scheduled SSIS package run in express as I don't believe the SQL Agent service is included in express and this is what SQL Server uses to schedule package runs


Thanks

Yo can not do this because express is free version with some limitations.

Hi Dave,

Is there another way, besides scheduling, to run the SSIS package on an SQL express server?

Hi, the only other way I could think to do this would be to use the DTEXEC utility and set up a windows scheduled task. However I don't think the DTExec utility comes with express either.

I'm pretty sure the only way around this is to upgrade the client to a proper licence, there's a reason express is free :)

Sorry I couldn't be of more help

Thanks
