This is part 5 of the series of article on SSIS. In this article I have described how to build and execute a package in SSIS.

 Download source code for SQL Server Integration Services (SSIS) – Part 5 – Building and Executing a Package


In this article we will look into how to build and execute a package in SSIS. The idea behind this article is the reader should get familiar with the options available in executing the package to check for any errors or to see if the package is executed correctly or not and finally in the next article we will look into the deployment strategies for SSIS.


In order to see the building and the execution process of SSIS, we are first going to create a solution (project) and do some tasks which you can see in my Part 1 to Part 4 Series on the step by step process at the below URL’s

Part 1


Part 2


Part 3


Part 4


So Once we are ready with creating tasks and preparing a format to perform some tasks as shown in the below screen we will see how to build and execute the SSIS packages

I have performed 2 tasks here, one is from a OLE DB connection (SQL DB) Northwind Database in products table I’m taking product values > 25 to an excel sheet. Is there is any problem with the source then it will transform them to Flat File.

So once we are ready with the project tasks, go to Build menu and click on BuildDebugandExecute

At the bottom on the window (Status bar) you can see the status of the build as shown in the below screen

Now in order to do the execution debug and check if the process goes on step by step Go to Debug menu and click on Start Debugging or Press F5 directly as shown in the below screen

The execution process starts and the tasks will be executed step by step and the completed tasks will be shown in green color as shown in the below screen

If there is any error in the process tasks then the task will be shown as RED color.


We have gone over the process on how to build and execute the SSIS package. We will look into the deployment options and techniques in the upcoming articles.
