    I wanted to find out all the task that are there in a particular DTS package using a T-SQL query on msdb database if it is stored out there.
    I was able to locate a package using msdb.dbo.sysdtspackages table, but I couldn't find a table for tasks associated a particular package.
    My primary objective is to find a list of all tasks associated with a DTS package.
    Any Help will be greatly appreciated.

    The information you are looking for is stored in sysdtspackages.packagedata column in HEX format. I don't think you get anything out of it...
    Either you have open the package do it manually or you can save the package vb script and seach for it which very difficult to impossible...

    To addup MU, your best bet would be to export the DTS packages to clear text files and
    then import them into a SQL Table that you maintain. In fact, you could do all of this via a DTS package as well as a sorta, self-documenting package!

    Poster is interested in details of the tasks inside the package for documentation and I don't think there is any way to save DTS package(s) to clear text files to get the info.

    Clear text file means to .DTS files.

    I don't think we can read .dts files...
