BUG #: 235895 (SHILOH_BUGS)
You may encounter the following problems in the Data Transformation Services (DTS) UI Online Help:
  • When opening a DTS package that was saved with a password, if you attempt to invoke Help in the Package Password dialog box, it may fail with the following message:
    Help topic not found
  • In the Execute SQL Task dialog box, when the cursor is in the SQL Statement, invoking Help brings up the "Calendar" Help topic instead of the "Execute SQL Task Properties" topic.
  • When editing a Transform Data Task and specifying SQL Query on the Source tab, if you right-click Select Font, the Font dialog box appears. Invoking Help from the Font dialog box brings up the "Transform Data Task Properties (Source Tab)" Help topic instead of the "Font" Help topic.
In the DTS Query Designer UI Online Help, you may encounter the following problems:
  • The Help button from the Add Table dialog box does not bring up a Help topic.
  • When an executed query results in an error, the Help button on the Error message dialog box does not bring up a Help topic.
NOTE: To invoke the DTS Query Designer, bring up the Transform Data Task Properties. On the Source tab, enable SQL Query and then select Build Query.
