I have an SSIS package that I would like to open and see what it contains. I have never used an SSIS editor to look at what is in an SSIS package. (I have worked with DTS packages years ago).

Thus I have the following questions about looking at and possibly modify an SSIS package that is setup for a swql server 2008 or sql server 2008 R2 database:
1. What type of file should I open? Should I open a file called ssispackage.sln? Is the last node called *.sln?
If not, what type of file should I open?
2. Is there a certain type of visual studio editor that I should use? For example, for an SSRS reports I open a bids editor and for programming in C# I open up an editor that is setuyp for C# programming.
3. Basically can you give me directions on how to open and work with ssis packages that are for sql server 2008 or sql server 2008 r2?

.sln is a solution, not a package. A package is .dtsx.

your best bet is to export the file from the msdn and open it up in VS 2k8 inside a project for SSIS.

2. Is there a certain type of visual studio editor that I should use? For example, for an SSRS reports I open a bids editor and for programming in C# I open up an editor that is setuyp for C# programming.

Open it up in either BIDS 2k8 or VS 2k8. Nothing else. 2k5 versions will not be able to view a 2k8 package, and VS2010 or SQL 2012 will upgrade the package and not allow you to downgrade it.


3. Basically can you give me directions on how to open and work with ssis packages that are for sql server 2008 or sql server 2008 r2?

And if that fails, you could also try MSDB
