ADO NET Source Editor (Connection Manager Page)


Applies To: SQL Server 2016

To learn more about the ADO NET source, see ADO NET Source.

To open the Connection Manager page

  1. In SQL Server Data Tools (SSDT), open the Integration Services package that has the ADO NET source.

  2. On the Data Flow tab, double-click the ADO NET source.

  3. In the ADO NET Source Editor, click Connection Manager.

When you preview data, columns with a CLR user-defined type do not contain data. Instead the values <value too big to display> or System.Byte[] display. The former displays when the data source is accessed by using the ADO.NET provider, the latter when using the SQL Server Native Client provider.
