    I had a question on how to move or copy a DTS package from one db to another one.
    Thanks

    If you wanna copy DTS from one server to another in the same network then
    open DTS in designer open save as dialogue box and enter the server details and click save to save it on another server.

    If another server is in diffrent network then read about structured storage file in BOL.
    Save DTS in file format and send it to another server then open that file on serverB and then save it.

    The best option is to backup MSDB and restore it on target server, thsi way you're easily managing all scheduled jobs.

    Refer tohttp://www.sqldts.com/default.aspx?204 for relevant information.

    Hi Satya
    But would this not overwrite the existing MSDB and hence overwrite the existing jobs and packages.

    Other option is to work with sysdtspackages, is msdb table.

    I will not incline towards loading a system table using DTS, otherwise refer to the link above.

    Use a VB script to save the DTS packages to a file (as ranjitjain mentioned) and load it (using another VBScript) into your destination server.
