Just to have fun with DS..

  • If you want to stop staring at the trace log and wait for it to show “JOB COMPLETED SUCCESSFULLY”.

        You can use an easy aid in DS..

         Go to Tools –> Options…
         Then break out Designer and click on General.

         Then click the box that says: Show Dialog when job is completed.

        Now whenever your job completes, you’ll get a little dialog box popping up to let you know.

  • One of the annoying defaults in Data Services is that all the names in Workflows or Dataflows are cut off after 17 characters.

            So to fix this go to Tools ->Options

            Then break out Designer and click on General.

            Where it says: Number of characters in workspace name. Change the number 17 to 100.
            Click OK when it asks you if you want to overwrite the job server parameters.
