Application Security Testing: An Integral Part of DevOps

Using DTS

Is it possible to create a DTS package that does an Update rather than a Select statement?

Also, when I save a DTS package in a file (*.dts as opposed to a repository or in SQL Server) can I view the syntax of the DTS, as in the query analyzer? Does the package use Transact-SQL statements?

Yes, you can get DTS to do an update, insert, delete, and select. You can also do creates of things.

I don't think the DTS internals are available for your perusal, though.

As far as Transact-SQL statements go, it's kind of a mixed bag. You do write some T-SQL for some jobs, but the data-driven query task (or any transformation really) requires you to use Microsoft Visual Basic for Applications (VBA) as the language.
