File extension .DTSX
|DTS Settings Format
The DTSX file extension is used by Microsoft SQL Server Integration Services to store settings related to the integration services packages. These packages are created by a graphical design tool known as the Integration Services Designer, and store the data flow, control flow, parameters, variables, and package configuration information. The file content is an XML tree structure that includes specific elements for each of the components.
The Data Flow components define the source and destination of data and sets up transformations such as sorting or merging data from multiple sources. This layer of the Integration Services package allows developers to define how data is extracted, transformed and loaded from one or more sources into a data destination such as a table in a database.
The Control Flow part of the package defines what tasks need to be carried out and in what order. Potential tasks could be transferring files via FTP, running queries against a database or executing sub-packages. Conditions can also be set so that a task (or group of tasks) will only run if certain conditions are met. Control objects such as loops and containers group tasks together and can also help restrict conditions to only affect specified sets of tasks.
Other File Extensions
The format used for the DTSX file is specific to Microsoft SQL Server Integration Services, but other software may also make use of XML files contained in a .dtsx. Similar file extensions include: .dts, .xml, .dat, .tlb.
Programs for WINDOWS system
After installing the required software, the operating system will usually automatically associate an unknown file type (in this case .DTSX) with the new application. If this does not happen, we can help the system a bit by selecting the software for it, which it should always use to open files with the .DTSX extension.
When choosing the software we can select the system to use this software every time.
Using it for the first time it is good to check whether the .DTSX file opened in the application can be read by us and opens in a way that allows us to use it. If everything is in order, select this option the next time you open a file with the .DTSX extension. However, if the file has not opened correctly, we have to look for a different software, with which we can open files with the .DTSX extension. Select a different software from our list and install it on your computer. After the software is installed, repeat inspection openings of a .DTSX file. Sometimes you have to repeat the operation several times.
If none of the programs listed by us to work with the .DTSX file has not meet your expectations, you can try searching other websites. But remember to avoid downloading programs "that can open any file". These applications not only have very limited functionality, but may also expose you to expense tens of dollars when purchasing a license.
In the vast majority of cases you will find the program dedicated to support the .DTSX file, or any other file format. In addition, there is a chance that it will be a free program, and its functionality (concerning the .DTSX file) will be extended to the maximum.
It is also good to check
- if the .DTSX file has no errors
- or if it has been copied (or downloaded by the browser) thoroughly
