How to: Set the Properties of a Data Flow Component in the Properties Window

This topic describes how to set the properties of data flow elements, which include sources, destinations, and transformations, by using the Properties window. The Properties window lists the component-level custom properties of each element, as well as the properties common to all data flow elements.

To set properties on inputs, outputs, and error outputs, or to set properties on specific columns, use the Advanced Editor. For more information, see How to: Set the Properties of a Data Flow Component Using the Advanced Editor.
