Save and Execute Package (SQL Server Import and Export Wizard)

Use the Save and Execute Package dialog box to run the package immediately, save it to run later, or both.

NoteNote

If you stop a package before it finishes running, the package is not saved, even if you selected the Save check box.

To learn more about this wizard, see Using the SQL Server Import and Export Wizard to Move Data. To learn about the options for starting the wizard, as well as the permissions required to run the wizard successfully, see How to: Run the SQL Server Import and Export Wizard.

The purpose of the SQL Server Import and Export Wizard is to copy data from a source to a destination. The wizard can also create a destination database and destination tables for you. However, if you have to copy multiple databases or tables, or other kinds of database objects, you should use the Copy Database Wizard instead. For more information, see Using the Copy Database Wizard.
