Integration Services Sources

Sources are the data flow components that make data from different types of data sources available to a data flow. Sources have one regular output, and many sources also have one error output.

There are three types of sources:

  • Sources that Setup installs when you install Integration Services.

  • Sources that are available to download from the Microsoft Web site.

  • Custom sources that you create if the existing sources do not meet your needs.

The following table lists the sources that SQL Server Integration Services provides.
