.dtsx File Extension

Developer: Microsoft
File type: DTS Settings File
You're here because you have a file that has a file extension ending in .dtsx. Files with the file extension .dtsx can only be launched by certain applications. It's possible that .dtsx files are data files rather than documents or media, which means they're not meant to be viewed at all.

what is a .dtsx file?

A DTS settings file is classified as a database file that can be created and used by the SQL Server software, and these DTS settings files are stored in the DTSX format and are appended with the .dtsx extension. The "DTS" in a DTS settings file stands for Data Transformation Service. The SQL Server program is categorized as database management software under the relational database management system (RDBMS) program classification. The content entered in a DTSX file includes settings and configurations for the migration of stored data to and from multiple databases, and support for integrating external sources of data is implemented into these DTSX files. The SQL Server Integration Services (SSIS) application is a software component integrated into the SQL Server program, and this component application uses these DTSX files. Microsoft developed the SQL Server software and the DTSX format, and the SQL Server 2008 program version can be installed in a computer running on Microsoft Windows-based systems.

how to open a .dtsx file?

Launch a .dtsx file, or any other file on your PC, by double-clicking it. If your file associations are set up correctly, the application that's meant to open your .dtsx file will open it. It's possible you may need to download or purchase the correct application. It's also possible that you have the correct application on your PC, but .dtsx files aren't yet associated with it. In this case, when you try to open a .dtsx file, you can tell Windows which application is the correct one for that file. From then on, opening a  .dtsx file will open the correct application.

Microsoft SQL Server (2008)

Microsoft SQL Server (2008)

SQL Server 2008, formerly codenamed Katmai, was released on August 6, 2008 and goals to make data self organizing, management self-tuning, and self maintaining with the improvement of SQL Server Always On technologies, to give almost-zero downtime. SQL Server 2008 also includes support for structured and semi-structured data, as well as digital media formats for pictures, audio, video and other multimedia data. In present versions, such multimedia data can be saved as BLOBs (binary large objects), but they are generic bit streams. It also natively supports hierarchical data, and includes T-SQL constructs to directly deal with them, without using recursive queries. Basic awareness of multimedia data will permit specialized functions to be performed on them. According to Paul Flessner, senior Vice President, Server Applications, Microsoft Corp., SQL Server 2008 can be a data storage backend for different varieties of data: XML, email, time/calendar, file, document, spatial, etc as well as perform search, query, analysis, sharing, and synchronization across all data types.

a word of warning

Be careful not to rename the extension on .dtsx files, or any other files. This will not change the file type. Only special conversion software can change a file from one file type to another.

what is a file extension?

A file extension is the set of three or four characters at the end of a filename; in this case, .dtsx. File extensions tell you what type of file it is, and tell Windows what programs can open it. Windows often associates a default program to each file extension, so that when you double-click the file, the program launches automatically. When that program is no longer on your PC, you can sometimes get an error when you try to open the associated file.
