Visual Studio Add-in : BIDS Helper

BIDS Helper is a FREE add-in for BIDS/Visual Studio

As I’m currently working with Integration Services , these features are very much of interest >

* Create Fixed Width Columns
* Deploy SSIS Packages
* Design Warnings
* dtsConfig File Formatter
* Expression and Configuration Highlighter
* Expression List
* Fix Relative Paths
* Non-Default Properties Report
* Pipeline Component Performance Breakdown
* Reset GUIDs
* Smart Diff
* Sort Project Files
* Sortable Package Properties Report
* SSIS Performance Visualization
* Variables Window Extensions

Personally I’m particularly interested in the Performance Studio feature...

The Non-Default Properties Report is also excellent for when you lose track of what you’ve changed, sorry tuned :)
