Debug a Script by Setting Breakpoints in a Script Task and Script Component
Applies To: SQL Server 2016 Preview
This procedure describes how to set breakpoints in the scripts that are used in the Script task and Script component.
After you set breakpoints in the script, the Set Breakpoints - <object name> dialog box lists the breakpoints, along with the built-in breakpoints.
Under certain circumstances, breakpoints in the Script task and Script component are ignored. For more information, see the Debugging the Script Task section in Coding and Debugging the Script Task and the Debugging the Script Component section in Coding and Debugging the Script Component.
