Public Function FolderExistsOnDtsServer ( _
    sFolderName As String, _
    sServerName As String _
) As Boolean
public bool FolderExistsOnDtsServer (
    string sFolderName,
    string sServerName
bool FolderExistsOnDtsServer (
    String^ sFolderName, 
    String^ sServerName
public boolean FolderExistsOnDtsServer (
    String sFolderName, 
    String sServerName
public function FolderExistsOnDtsServer (
    sFolderName : String, 
    sServerName : String
) : boolean


  • sFolderName
    The name of the folder you are looking for. For example, to see if a folder name myFolder exists under the File System folder, use the escaped string, @"\File System\myFolder".
  • sServerName
    The name of the server to search for the package.

Return Value

true if the folder specified exists on the server; false if the folder does not exist.


The following code example queries the File System to determine whether a folder that was created previously, named myFolder, exists.

class PackageTest
        static void Main(string[] args)
            Application app = new Application();
            Package p = app.LoadPackage(pkg, null);

            String folderName = @"\File System\myFolder";
            String serverName = "yourserver";
            Boolean folderExists = app.FolderExistsOnDtsServer(folderName, serverName);
            Console.WriteLine("Folder exists? " + folderExists);
Class PackageTest
        Sub Main(ByVal args() As String)
            Dim app As Application =  New Application() 
            Dim p As Package =  app.LoadPackage(pkg,Nothing) 
            Dim folderName As String =  "\File System\myFolder" 
            Dim serverName As String =  "yourserver" 
            Dim folderExists As Boolean =  app.FolderExistsOnDtsServer(folderName,serverName) 
            Console.WriteLine("Folder exists? " + folderExists)
        End Sub
End Class

Sample Output:

Folder exists? True
