How to: Set Task Properties

Updated: 17 July 2006

Most task properties can be set using the Properties window. The exceptions are properties of task collections and properties that are too complex to set using the Properties window. Use a task editor to set these properties. Most task editors have multiple nodes and each node contains related properties. The name of the node indicates the subject of the properties that the node contains.

  1. In Business Intelligence Development Studio, open the Integration Services project that contains the package you want.

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

  3. Click the Control Flow tab.

  4. On the design surface of the Control Flow tab, right-click the task, and then click Properties.

  5. In the Properties window, update the property value.

    Most properties can be set by typing a value directly in the text box, or by selecting a value from a list. However, some properties are more complex and have a custom property editor. To set the property, click in the text box, and then click the build (…) button to open the custom editor.

  6. Optionally, create property expressions to dynamically update the properties of the task. For more information, see How to: Create a Property Expression.

  7. To save the updated package, click Save Selected Items on the File menu.
