The DataReader destination exposes the data in a data flow by using the ADO.NET DataReader interface. The data can then be consumed by other applications. For example, you can configure the data source of a Reporting Services report to use the result of running a Microsoft SQL Server Integration Services package. To do this, you create a data flow that implements the DataReader destination.
For information about accessing and reading values in the DataReader destination programmatically, see Loading the Output of a Package into Another Program.
You can specify a time-out value for the DataReader destination and indicate whether the destination should fail if a time-out occurs. A time-out occurs if the application does not ask for data within the specified time.
The DataReader destination has one input. It does not support an error output.
