Even Easier SSIS Package Configuration

Filed under: SSIS — COZYROC @ 3:42 am

We all know the standard hard-coded SSIS package configuration types like XML, registry, INI file, SQL Server. Our opinion is that the SSIS package configuration implementation in the SQL 2005 incarnation is half baked, with no way to extend it with other configuration types. We have used for a long time in DTS a different configuration setup based on Excel worksheets. It gives you better maintenability and flexibility because you can use the Excel engine as a powerful initialization model. We have created a small Script Task to demonstrate the concept. You can use it as a sample to create your own configuration mechanisms. Please install SSIS+ 1.2 to use it. Enjoy.
