Scheduling SSIS Package in SQL Server

In this article I’ll explain how we can schedule a SSIS Package.


Suppose you have created a SSIS Package for updating XML files and now you want to update the XML files every 5 minutes. There are several steps for doing that. Those steps are as follows:

  1. First login into your SQL Server and click on SQL Server Agent and select Jobs:
