How to: Create a New Integration Services Project

This procedure creates a new project and a new Integration Services solution.

To create a new Integration Services project

  1. Open Business Intelligence Development Studio.

  2. On the File menu, point to New, and then click Project.

  3. In the New Project dialog box, in the Templates pane, select either the Integration Services Project or the Integration Services Connections Project Wizard template.

    The template that you select depends on the type of project that you want to create:

    • The Integration Services Project template creates an Integration Services project that contains a single, empty package.

    • The Integration Services Connections Project Wizard template also creates an Integration Services project that contains a single package. However, the package already contains the connection managers, data sources, and data destinations that you configured in the wizard.

    For more information about these two templates, see Integration Services Projects.

  4. (Optional) Edit the project name and the location.

    The solution name is automatically updated to match the project name.

  5. In the Solution drop-down list, select Create new Solution.

  6. To create a separate folder for the solution file, select Create directory for solution. This is the default option.

  7. If source control software is installed on the computer, select Add to Source Control to associate the project with source control.

  8. If the source control software is Microsoft Visual SourceSafe, the Visual SourceSafe Login dialog box opens. In Visual SourceSafe Login, provide a user name, a password, and the name of the Microsoft Visual SourceSafe database. Click Browse to locate the database.


    To view and change the selected source control plug-in and to configure the source control environment, click Options on the Tools menu, and then expand the Source Control node.

  9. Click OK to add the solution to Solution Explorer and add the project to the solution.
