Creating DTS Packages With SQL Server 2000


Data Transformation Services (DTS) were added to SQL Server 7 and allow us to combine several data-related tasks into one common object. In this article Tim shows us how to create a DTS package with SQL Server 2000 that will access a database and email the results of a query to some sales executives. He also shows us how to execute and error trap DTS packages from within an ASP script.

Creating DTS Packages With SQL Server 2000 - Conclusion
(Page 6 of 6 )

As you can see from the sample in this article, DTS packages are a quick and easy way to create reusable objects to work with data. I am currently working on a banking project, and we use DTS packages to distribute sales data to six financial processing servers, each running SQL Server 2000 and BizTalk.

DTS is one of the many features of SQL Server that can be used to create a professional set of objects to make your everyday workings with data easier and more streamlined. Just like databases, DTS packages can also be exported, so they can be shared amongst multiple servers.

If you've never used DTS packages before, then I'd encourage you to take some time playing around with all of the connection and task objects in the DTS designer. They're a bit tricky to figure out at first, but you should be able to come to grips with them quickly using this article and the links/books shown below.
