Examples

The following example loads a package from the Samples folder, and then retrieves information about the package, such as its CreationDate, CreatorComputerName, and CreatorName.

static void Main(string[] args)  
        {  
            // The variable pkg points to the location  
            // of the ExecuteProcess package sample   
            // that is installed with the samples.  
            string pkg = @"C:\Program Files\Microsoft SQL Server\100\Samples\Integration Services\Package Samples\ExecuteProcess Sample\ExecuteProcess\UsingExecuteProcess.dtsx";  
  
            Application app = new Application();  
            Package p = app.LoadPackage(pkg, null);  
  
            //Retrieve creation information about the package.  
            DateTime createDate = p.CreationDate;  
            String computerCreated = p.CreatorComputerName;  
            String creatorName = p.CreatorName;  
  
            Console.WriteLine("Package creation date = " + createDate);  
            Console.WriteLine("Creation Computer = " + computerCreated);  
            Console.WriteLine("Creator Name = " + creatorName);  
        }  
Shared  Sub Main(ByVal args() As String)  
            ' The variable pkg points to the location  
            ' of the ExecuteProcess package sample   
            ' that is installed with the samples.  
            Dim pkg As String =  "C:\Program Files\Microsoft SQL Server\100\Samples\Integration Services\Package Samples\ExecuteProcess Sample\ExecuteProcess\UsingExecuteProcess.dtsx"   
  
            Dim app As Application =  New Application()   
            Dim p As Package =  app.LoadPackage(pkg,Nothing)   
  
            'Retrieve creation information about the package.  
            Dim createDate As DateTime =  p.CreationDate   
            Dim computerCreated As String =  p.CreatorComputerName   
            Dim creatorName As String =  p.CreatorName   
  
            Console.WriteLine("Package creation date = " + createDate)  
            Console.WriteLine("Creation Computer = " + computerCreated)  
            Console.WriteLine("Creator Name = " + creatorName)  
End Sub  

Sample Output:

Package creation date = 5/5/2003 5:46:00 PM

Creation Computer =

Creator Name =

Remarks

The DateTime is a variant data type VT_DATE, which is a Integration Services data type of DT_Date. This value can be overwritten. For more information about VT_DATE and DT_Date, see Integration Services Data Types.
