Creating an SSIS project

Now that SSDT (SQL Server Data Tools) has been installed the next step is to create a project. First, open up Visual Studios 2015 or SQL Server Data Tools 2015 (SSDT is really just a set of modules added to Visual Studio).

Menu File -> New -> Project

Here we have a number of options. We want to select the template Integration Services Project. Pick a name for the project and solution (default for the solution name is the project name). Then depending on if you check Create directory for solution or not you will either find your sln file in one of the following two directories:

  • Checked: C:\Users\kenne_000\Documents\Visual Studio 2015\Projects\FirstSSDTProject\
  • Un-Checked: C:\Users\kenne_000\Documents\Visual Studio 2015\Projects\


And once the project is done being created (and it does take a few minutes) it is automatically opened and ready to have stuff added to it.

My name is Kenneth Fisher and I am Senior DBA for a large (multi-national) insurance company. I have been working with databases for over 20 years starting with Clarion and Foxpro. I’ve been working with SQL Server for 12 years but have only really started “studying” the subject for the last 3. I don’t have any real "specialities" but I enjoy trouble shooting and teaching. Thus far I’ve earned by MCITP Database Administrator 2008, MCTS Database Administrator 2005, and MCTS Database Developer 2008. I’m currently studying for my MCITP Database Developer 2008 and should start in on the 2012 exams next year. My blog is at www.sqlstudies.com.
