How to: Set the Properties of a Path Using the Data Flow Path Editor

Paths connect two data flow components. Before you can set path properties, the data flow must contain at least two connected data flow components. For more information, see How to: Add a Component to a Data Flow and How to: Connect Components in a Data Flow.

To set path properties

  1. In Business Intelligence Development Studio, open the Integration Services project that contains the package you want.

  2. In Solution Explorer, double-click the package to open it.

  3. Click the Data Flow tab, and then double-click a path.

  4. In Data Flow Path Editor, click General. You can then edit the default name of the path and provide a description of the path. You can also modify the PathAnnotation property.

  5. Click OK.

  6. To save the updated package, click Save Selected Items on the File menu.
