Hi,
I can run an SSIS package from the command prompt using the following command;
c:\Program Files\Microsoft SQL Server\100\DTS\Binn>dtexec.exe /f c:\batch\writeSuccesWhenPackageFails.dtsx

Open in new window

I now need to call this package from a batch file.
What is the syntax I need to put in the batch file?
Any guidance appreciated
Thanks

Well, there is no reason why you can't just put that line in a batch file like this but you need to take into account the spaces in the folder names:

@echo off
cd c:\Program Files\Microsoft SQL Server\100\DTS\Binn
dtexec.exe /f c:\batch\writeSuccesWhenPackageFails.dtsx

Open in new window

You can use basically the same syntax in a BAT file, although you will need to quote the program name since it has spaces.  So a simple BAT like this would run it:

@echo off
"c:\Program Files\Microsoft SQL Server\100\DTS\Binn>dtexec.exe" /f c:\batch\writeSuccesWhenPackageFails.dtsx

Open in new window

Depending on what you want to happen to the BAT file while the SSIS runs you can also use the START command, but no need to go into that added complexity if it isn't needed.

Try a BAT file as mentioned above and see how it goes.

Hi Lee and Bill,
Thanks for your comments

Below worked perfectly.
@echo off

"c:\Program Files\Microsoft SQL Server\100\DTS\Binn\dtexec.exe" /FILE "c:\batch\writeSuccesWhenPackageFails.dtsx"
