Hi All,

Could you tell me how to add database objects to BIDS Projects.

I am working on SSIS and have seen a project where the database object definitions such as the table names and the stored procedures are all listed in the project.

I have attached a small screen shot of the project explorer to show what I am trying to describe.

Hope you can help.

Thank you

I'm pretty sure that you cannot have a single project which is a mix of SSIS packages and database objects.

However, I see no reason why a single solution should not contain an SSIS project and a database project. Though I wouldn't necessarily recommend doing that.

This link shows you how to import the schema from an existing physical database into a VS database project. You may learn some 'bad' things about your database along the way

Managing objects is done in SSDT (SQL Server Data Tools). SSIS is done in SSDT-BI. Confusing right?
SSDT is a seperate but free download. Once you have installed this, you can manage your database projects in Visual Studio. However, you cannot add them to the same project - as Phil mentioned - but you can add different projects to the same solution. Doesn't necessarily make it a good idea though.

Thank you both very much. I had a look through the link as well.

It's not something I want to do but saw it in a example project so was wondering how they did it especially it being a 2008 project.

Thank you both again for your help!

In certain versions of Visual Studio 2008 (the more expensive ones) you had SQL Server 2008 Database projects (I believe it was nicknamed Data Dude). SSDT is the replacement of those kind of projects.
