I have an SSIS package with 5 separate data flow tasks. They are not linked and run in parallel. I;m trying to figure out how to stop the other data flow tasks when one task fails. Anyone got any idea?

I tried setting Max Fails etc but doesn't seem to stop the other tasks.

Try to add a follow-up task (could be a script task or a ole command task that issues a SQL RAISERROR stmt). Connect your 5 parallel tasks to this new task but only upon failure.

Hmmm that doesn't seem to work. The other Data Flow tasks seem to continue to run in parallel.

I tried something similar with a Script task which returned a dts error and that didn't work either.

If they run in paralllel, they are independent of each other.
However, this is not 100% true. Say you have 7 tasks which can run in parallel.
But only 4 of time can run at the same time (due to the number of processors available). If one crashes, the other 3 will continue to run. But no new data flow tasks will be started since the parent container (package, sequence container, for each loop, whatever) has already failed.
