SSIS Connection Manager

Introduction

After the proper understanding the BIDS it's time to understand the connection manager of SSIS package.  In this article I am trying to cover the connection manager and the purpose of it.

The Connection Manager

The Connection manager dialog box helps us to select the type of connection to add to a package. The connection contains connection string that point to files or databases.
