Script ALL DTS packages on server to text files


This VB script allows you to search DTS packages for keywords, etc. It is also useful for quickly locating what server a given package is on. This is very useful for debugging. Example - you want to know the name of every DTS package the touches a certain table. The text files generated contain the text of every task (including the full text of execute SQL tasks and activex scripts, transformations, etc.) within a DTS package. This script could be run stand alone, or from an activex task within a DTS package or agent job. I personally created a new single DTS package with one copy of this script for each server I want to script. I scheduled it to run nightly. The date is included in the destination folder. This allows me to easily check what has changed in a package over time (i.e. versioning).

'  Author:	Darren Gordon
'  Purpose: 	To script all of your DTS packages out to text files.  
'		This is useful if you want to search all packages to find
'		a specific string.  All text from execute SQL tasks and
'		activex scripts is included in the output files.
'  Notes:	Set your servername and output folder at the top of
'		the script.  Also set integrated security on or off.
