I've had the same problem before and the problem went away when I close BIDS and then re-opened it.

Have you tried going to the View Menu and adding the variables tab from there?

Try Window, Reset Window Layout.

As an experiment, I just tried undocking my variables window and moving it to the bottom right of my screen. After resetting the window layout, I right-clicked the background and selected the option for the variables window. It reappeared in the default location docked on the left side. I hope this solves your problem.

Jack I have tried using View Menu add windows but no luck

Tom I did try the reset window layout but it didnt work

The problem is that it doesnt give any error when I select variable by right click nor from the ssis menu it just doesnt show up.

Thanks you

No, I couldn't get my variables window to open unless it was in debug mode.
