On page 221, the first paragraph of the "Using the SQL Server Import and Export Wizard to Execute Packages" section should be changed.

Change:
"The SQL Server Import and Export Wizard provides the simplest method for creating and executing a simple package. You can start the SQL Server Import and Export Wizard from an Integrations Services package in BIDS, or you can start the wizard from SQL Server Management Studio; however, you can execute a package only if you start the SQL Server Import and Export Wizard in SQL Server Management Studio."

To:
"The SQL Server Import and Export Wizard provides the easiest method for creating and executing a simple package. You can start the SQL Server Import and Export Wizard from an Integrations Services project in BIDS or you can start the wizard from SQL Server Management Studio. There is a slight difference in the way the wizard functions when it is started from Management Studio versus when it is started from BIDS. If you start the wizard in Management Studio you are given an option to have the package executed when the wizard finishes. If you start the wizard from BIDS the package will not be executed when the wizard finishes. Instead, the wizard finishes and the package is saved in your Integration Services project. You may then execute the package from BIDS by right-clicking on the package and clicking Execute Package.

To start the SQL Server Import and Export Wizard from BIDS in Solution Explorer right-click on the SSIS Packages folder and click SSIS Import and Export Wizard. To start the wizard from Management Studio right-click on a database, click Tasks, and then click Import Data or click Export Data.

An exercise demonstrating how to use the SQL Server Import and Export Wizard is included in the “Using the SSIS Import and Export Wizard” section in Chapter 2."

Change:
"A package cannot be executed if you start the SQL Server Import And Export Wizard from an Integrations Services package in BIDS."

To:
"If you start the SQL Server Import and Export Wizard from an Integration Services project in BIDS the wizard will not execute the package. Once the wizard is finished, right-click on the package and click Execute Package."

Page 224: Additional information needed in the Execute tasks and containers and then disable the task and execute the package section

On page 224, a paragraph should be added before step 1 in the "Execute tasks and containers and then disable the task and execute the package" section that reads:

To:
"In SQL Server Management Studio click on the Table – dbo.sysdtslog90 tab. On the toolbar, click the red exclamation mark (!) (Execute SQL). View the additional log entries."

Page 234: Additional step needed

On page 234, an additional step is needed after step 4 that reads:
