breakpoints being ignored on child package

    I have an ssis package that calls a the same child package several times, changing a variable set in the parent package before executing the child package each time. I'm executing the parent package in the BIDS environment, not running it as a scheduled package. The first time the child package is executed, it stops at all the breakpoints. The second time the child package is executed, all the breakpoints are ignored. I don't understand why this is happening. Can anyone explain it?

    Thanks!

    Elaine,

    Have you made any progress on this?

    I have a similar/simpler problem.

    In my case, it does not seem to stop on any breakpoint in the sub package while it stops on the parent package.

    Any idea?

    :unsure:

    Thanks

    Hi Eric -

    My post was so long ago, that I barely remember the problem. I don't recall that I ever figured out the answer to my question.

    For my purposes, I think that writing out variable values in message boxes worked - kind of like doing response.write in old asp pages years ago.

    Not sure if that matters but I assign the file name of the child package dynamically based on data retrieved in a database.

    Could that bother the debugger?

    I can still see the green/red tasks in the sub package, though...
