	serverUserName : String, 
	serverPassword : String



The package to save.


The IDTSEvents object.


The path and new name to assign to the package. The parameter packagePath is in the format of \\folder\\packageName. If packagePath is specified without an existing folder, the package will be saved with this parameter as its new name.


The name of the instance of SQL Server.


The name of the account used to log on to the instance of SQL Server.


The password of the user account.

The following code example saves the sample package named ExecuteProcess.dtsx to the msdb folder, with a new name of myNewPackage. To verify that the package was saved, run the following Transact-SQL query against the msdb database. The query returns all packages stored in the msdb system table.

select * from sysdtspackages90

Or, connect to the Integration Services service, expand Stored Packages, and then expand MSDB. The package with the name specified in packagePath will be listed.

static void Main(string[] args)
           // The variable pkg points to the location
           // of the ExecuteProcess package sample 
           // that is installed with the SSIS samples.
            string pkg = @"C:\Program Files\Microsoft SQL Server\90\Samples\Integration Services\Package Samples\ExecuteProcess Sample\ExecuteProcess\UsingExecuteProcess.dtsx";
            Application app = new Application();
            Package p = app.LoadPackage(pkg, null);

           // Save the package to the SQL Server msdb folder, which is
           // also the MSDB folder in the Integration Services service, or as a row in the
           //sysdtspackags90 table.
            app.SaveToSqlServerAs(p, null, "myNewPackage", "yourserver", null, null);
