How to you go back and look at the details of an Integration Services package that has been saved?

Open Visual Studio, File menu, Open..., File, and find your .dtsx file out on the file system, and Open.
in SSIS undo is not working for all the changes..

If you have them in the file system folder in the SSIS, you can also export the package from the server, save it in the File System, you can then create a new SSIS project and import it.

This could help when you don't have the original package files.

I created a new export package using the SQL server Import Export Wizard.
I checked the box that said "Save SSIS Package" and gave it a name when prompted.
After doing that, I can see it when I go into SQL Server Management Studio, Open Integration services and look under Stored Packages\MSDB.  It does not show up under "Stored Packages\File System".  Also, if I use Windows Explorer Search and look for "*.dtsx" it does not show up anywhere.  Do I have to right click on the package under Stored Packages\MSDB and do the "Export Package" option in order to create the "dtsx" file?
