Save As (ssis sln ) project - Not Working

Posted on 2014-08-11

I am trying to create copy of a SSIS project and edit its contents (SQL).
For example – the SSIS sln file when opened, has a execute sql task where I am changing all 115 to 116 but that change (new) is getting done in all the sln files (different versions) within the3 same folder. How can this be done so that I can properly do a save as of the entire tree and the sln file will only be effected here with the new changes, no other sln versions.

    save as is doing changes all across other sln files. this is undesired.

    The sln file is an xml file that points at a dtproj file which is also an xml file that points at one or more dtsx files.  The dtsx file is where the data transformation details are stored, there may also be files that define data sources, etc.  When you copy the sln file it is still pointed at the original location so you are still editing the original dtsx file.

    I would suggest creating a new project and then using copy/paste to copy the objects from the old one into the new one.  There are other options but this is the one I use when I need to.
