Andy,
Why have you referred to it as a Data Pump?

I have not actually read the article yet. I'm just asking about these paragraphs that seem to be a little jumbled.


First, SSIS will never store or save decrypted password fields. If your connection requires a password, and you check the Save My Password (or Save Password, depending on the version of SSIS you’re running) checkbox, and your SSIS package is encrypted.

SSIS will store your password internally and encrypted if you use Windows Authentication, the Connection Manager will connect to the database in the context of the user who executes the package.


I think that you really meant to say:

Jamie,

Uh oh. What's wrong with referring to the Data Flow Task as a data pump?



John,

Yep - I missed that. You worded it correctly.

Jamie,

What other than "that's not what it is called"? Nothing, nothing at all! :-)

Sorry, I'm a bit of a terminology zealot - I just think it could be risky using wrong terms because then people start to misuse them and that's where communication breakdowns begin (I speak as someone that has spent a lot of time on forums trying to understand what people *really* mean) :-)

Thanks Jamie,

I think you're being prudent and that I was sloppy with my terminology. It's ok to make analogies, but it's best to keep them out of the title of a major article. Good point. I will avoid this going forward.

Thanks!
Andy

Hi Andy,

I wish i had got your article back when I started working with SSIS 2.5 years ago. A great article. It covers great detail and is yet simple for all to understand. I also found myself looking for Step: 3. lol!!! In fact I will spread the word of your work. I'm certain my team member can benefit from your articles.

I'm definitely looking forward to the next installment.

Another great article Andy!

I found it very nice that you gave some attention to the layout of the package, as unfortunately, messy control and data flows do appear in books or blog posts. :-)
