SSIS Help

Whether you are having issues creating your first package or you are an experienced SSIS user but have been dealing with the hardest issue ever, know that you are no alone. The SSIS community has grown so much the last few years as the number of resources out there. Let me introduce a short list of places where you can go to get good information and answer to most questions you may have:

Books on line SSIS 2005. A great place to start, you can either follow the tutorials if you are a newbie, or use it as a reference.
Books on line SSIS 2008 A great place to start, you can either follow the tutorials if you are a newbie, or use it as a reference.
MSDN Forums: A Microsoft hosted forum and the most active one I am aware of, where several MVPs, Micorsot folks and other comunity members gather to ask and answer questions.

SSIS Live Search Macro. A Live Search macro created by Jamie Thomson that covers many SSIS relevant sites and blogs.

Update 11/19/2008: Douglas Laudenschlager blog. Doug is part of the SSIS documentation team and frequent blogger

  3. Douglas, I knew about that forum, and actually my intention was to provide a link to the main page of the SQL forum as, at some point, both 2005 and 2008 will be merged. Thanks for pointing that out, I have updated the link accordingly.

  9. James, I see 2 options. A) Modify the package and use package configurations or B) use the /SET option of DTEXEC to override the connection string values.

    Have you tried using the links provided in this post to research or ask questions?
