public function CreateFolderOnDtsServer(
    sParent : String, 
    sNewFolderName : String, 
    sServerName : String


  • sParent
    Type: System.String
    The name of the top level folder to save this folder under.
  • sNewFolderName
    Type: System.String
    The name to give the newly created folder.
  • sServerName
    Type: System.String
    The name of the server running the Integration Services service.


To verify that the folder was created, the following Transact-SQL query selects all packages stored in the File System folder of the Stored Packages package store.

select * from sysssispackages

To view a list of folders, you can also connect to the Integration Services service, expand Stored Packages, and then expand File System. The new folder that has the name given in strNewFolderName will be listed.

To start the Integration Services service, open Control Panel, click Administrative Tools, and then click Services. The Services snap-in opens. Locate SQL Server Integration Services in the list of services, right-click SQL Server Integration Services, and then click Properties, and select a Startup type of Manual. Click OK. Again, right-click SQL Server Integration Services, and then click Start 


The following example shows how to create a new folder, myFolder, in the File system. To view the folder after creation, open SQL Server Management Studio, connect to the Integration Services service, expand the Stored Packages package store, and then expand the folder named by myParentFolder. In the example, the new folder is created under the existing File System folder.

        static void Main(string[] args)
            Application app = new Application();

            String folder = "File System";
            String newName = "myFolder";
