SSIS 2008 Configuration Files

SSIS 2008 Configuration Files


I have a SSIS 2008 package I want to run against test and live data sources and destinations.
The way to do this appears to be to use Configuration files.
I've tried to do this and come up against a problem.

I have created two configuration files. One for live and one for test.
I can see both of the in a BIDS/Visual Studio session when right clicking the Control Flow yellow background and selecting 'Package Configurations'.

I want to run my package in BIDS/Visual Studio to make sure it's all working and watch the control flow boxes turn yellow and green.
Where can you specify in BIDS/Visual studio to use one configuration file or the other from the list shown as available?

I would have expected a 'Use' tick box next to the list of possible configuration files
with one allowed to have a tick. At the moment I am not even sure a BIDS/Visual Studio session uses any configuration file within Bids/Visual Studio.
It might just use the settings available in BIDS/Visual Studio session?.

Dazed and confused.

Remember.. 'Depression is just anger without enthusiasum'.
