I have a situation wher I need to pass parameters to SSIS variables using stored procedure.

I am reluctant to us xp_cmdshell to run the package from stored procedure.

Is there a way to run ssis package from stored procedure using dtexec utility which avoids the use of xp_cmdshell?

Your comments and suggestions are highly appreciated.

No.  Normally dtexec is run from the command line using SQL Server Agent or some other scheduling app.

Thanks for your answer; But, I have managed to solve the problem by myself and ran it using sp_start_job with a custimized logic in stored procedure to implement with parameter values.

Right, that is what I meant by "using SQL Server Agent".
