Hello:

SSRS, through report parameters, has the capability to prompt the end user with a date range.  Does SSIS have this capability, when the end user executes a package?

ONLY if whatever 'executes a package' means captures user-entered dates, and passes those dates as parameters in the command line that executes the package.

SSIS command line switches, scroll WAY down to 'Set Option'

AND

The SSIS package has two variables for beginning and end dates, and those variables are used throughout the package.
