How to: Add an Annotation to a Package

This procedure describes how to add an annotation to a package.

  1. In Business Intelligence Development Studio, open the Integration Services project that contains the package to which you want to add an annotation.

  2. In Solution Explorer, double-click the package to open it.

  3. In SSIS Designer, right-click anywhere on the design surface of the Control Flow, Data Flow, or Event Handler tab, and then click Add Annotation. A text block appears on the design surface of the tab.

  4. Add text.

    The text block does not provide word wrap, but instead scrolls the text as the text exceeds the width of the text block. Press Ctrl-Enter to add a new line to the text block.

    ms141156.note(en-US,SQL.90).gifNote:
    If you add no text, the text block is removed when you click outside the block.

  5. To change the size or format of the text in the annotation, right-click on the annotation, and select Set Text Annotation Font.

  6. To save the updated package, click Save on the File menu.
