SQL Server 2008 Job Fails but runs fine when package executed manually

Last Modified: 2016-02-10
Hi all.

I have a SSIS that has a vb script with the code below, it deletes and imports data into a linked server (the linked server is SQL Server 2000):

Dim con As New SqlConnection
        Dim cmd As New SqlCommand
        con.ConnectionString = "Data Source=myserver;Initial Catalog=Product;Integrated Security=True"


        cmd.Connection = con
        cmd.CommandText = "DELETE FROM [mylinkedserver].[mydatabase].dbo.BlanketOrder_ROP"

        cmd.CommandText = "INSERT INTO [mylinkedserver].[mydatabase].dbo.BlanketOrder_ROP(ItemNumber, ROP) SELECT ItemNumber, ROP FROM BlanketOrder_ROP"

		Dts.TaskResult = ScriptResults.Success

Open in new window

When I execute the package in SQL Server Business Intelligence Development Studio it runs fine with no errors (it actually deletes the data and then inserts the updated data). But when I create a SQL Server Agent Job it fails with the following error:

Source: Import into mydatabase database on mylinkedServer BlanketOrder_ROP table      Description: System.Reflection.TargetInvocationException: Exception has been thrown by the target of an invocation. ---> System.Data.SqlClient.SqlException: DELETE permission denied on object 'BlanketOrder_ROP', database 'mydatabase', owner 'dbo'

What do I need to do to have the SSIS run through the SQL Server Agent Jobs?
