Create a New Integration Services Project
Updated: August 25, 2016
This procedure creates a new project and a new Integration Services solution.
Open SQL Server Data Tools (SSDT).
On the File menu, point to New, and then click Project.
In the New Project dialog box, in the Templates pane, select the Integration Services Project template.
The Integration Services Project template creates an Integration Services project that contains a single, empty package.
(Optional) Edit the project name and the location.
The solution name is automatically updated to match the project name.
To create a separate folder for the solution file, select Create directory for solution. This is the default option.
If source control software is installed on the computer, select Add to source control to associate the project with source control.
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.
NOTE: 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.
Click OK to add the solution to Solution Explorer and add the project to the solution.
In Solution Explorer, right-click on an Integration Services project and select Properties to open the property pages for the project.
On the General tab of Configuration Properties, select the TargetServerVersion property, and then choose SQL Server 2016, SQL Server 2014, or SQL Server 2012.
You can create, maintain, and run packages that target SQL Server 2016, SQL Server 2014, or SQL Server 2012.
