The expected behavior for a post-source data pump phase would be that it is executed after the last row-by-row copying of data, transformation, and commit (rollback) process is executed. The post-source data pump phase functionality is an advanced feature. To enable the multiphase data pump functionality, follow these steps:
  1. Right-click Data Tranformation Services in the Microsoft Management Console (MMC) and click Properties.
  2. Select Show multi-phase pump in DTS designer.
To set the LastRow option, follow these steps:
  1. Right-click the transfer data task and click Properties.
  2. Click the Options tab and enter the desired number of rows to be copied in the LastRow box.
