I am new to SSIS.

I need to know how to create variables to be used in multiple packages of a project.

I am converting an Access application running on a local PC to be run as a SQL Server Agent job.

I need to create global variables to be used by many other packages in the project.

It appears I can create variables local to a package but not usable by any other package.

Would anyone be able to tell me how to accomplish this?

Remember I am new to this SSIS and do not know all the basic.

Presently I am using an Execute SQL Task Toolbox Control Flow Item's SQL Statement and a Connection Manager of Native OLE DB\Microsoft OLE DB Provider for Oracle (MSDAORA.1).

Cheers!

Read up on package configurations. This will allow you to set your package up to pull in values from environment variables, registry entries, xml files, etc. You should be able to create a solution where multiple packages pull from the save variable store.
