Lesson 1-9 - Testing the Lesson 1 Tutorial Package

In this lesson, you have done the following tasks:

  • Created a new SSIS project.

  • Configured the connection managers that the package needs to connect to the source and destination data.

  • Added a data flow that takes the data from a flat file source, performs the necessary Lookup transformations on the data, and configures the data for the destination.

Your package is now complete! It is time to test your package.
