dts from ssis 2008

Is there a way we can access and run the DTS packages using SSIS-2008, as if we can do using SSIS-2005?

Yes, you can import legacy DTS in SQL Server 2008.

SQL Server 2008 has a limited support for DTS. If you have 64-bit installation then SSIS has to run in 32-bit mode. This [link leads][1] to the article explaining how to install run-time support for DTS [1]: http://msdn.microsoft.com/en-us/library/ms143755.aspx

Thanks for the add on Oleg. I have learned all to well the issues with 64bit OS and SQL with SSIS especially support with Excel. Not sure why Microsoft chose to not provide full 64bit support.

@TRAD The rumor has it that while there are no 64-bit drivers for Excel 2003/2007, Microsoft has developed 64-bit drivers for Excel 2010. The only trouble is that you can install either 32 OR 64-bit driver on the box, but not both. It kinda makes sense as they have to have some ways to enforce people to upgrade to the latest version of Office :)

The same compatibility components you use with SQL Server 2005 have been updated to work with SQL Server 2008.
