Find or install SSIS

Find or install SSIS

Find or install SSIS

Hi, I hope you can help me. I'm a total newbie to SSIS but have written SQL stored procedures, used the job scheduler, and DTS packages at my previous job. I'm working on a new installation, and think some use of SSIS would help the users here get some information the rather lame ERP system holds but doesn't provide efficiently. My problem, and I feel really dumb about this, is that I don't know how to access SSIS. I am using Microsoft SQL Server management Studio, and it wouldn't suprise me if I have SSIS right under my nose but don't know how to find it. Any tips for me would be appreciated.

RE: Find or install SSIS

If you have management studio then you have installed SQL Server

If you have installed SQL Server then hopefully when you did so you installed all components

If you installed all components then it would have installed Business Intelligence Development Studio (BIDS)

BIDS is Visual Studio "Lite" - just the BI components of it

To use SSIS, open BIDS and create a new project. Select the option to create an Integration Services project and you are away

We could learn a lot from crayons. Some are sharp, some are pretty and some are dull. Some have weird names and all are different colours but they all live in the same box.

RE: Find or install SSIS

No, I don't see BIDS. I have worked in it at my previous job. Where I am now, we are trying to develop the knowledge and information sources to get out of a situation where a consultant has installed an ERP system and taken steps to lock us to their consulting services. I'll bet it didn't get installed. Many convenient features such as dbmail, are not enabled either. Last week our server vendor installed the piece I needed to write queries and SPs, so I'm sure they can install this too.
Thank you for confirming what I had suspected.

RE: Find or install SSIS

Go to Start>Programs>Microsoft SQL Server 2005>SQL Server Business Intelligence Development Studio. If it's not there, you most likely haven't installed it.
