There Goes Your Data Now…

DTS Package Execution Dialog

Is it just me, or does this dialog box, which appears when using a particular part of Microsoft SQL Server 2000, present a very bad metaphor? One that says, “this arrow represents your data, and here it is being minced by some cogs”. Or maybe it’s just me that thinks that, and winces a little every time another animated grey arrow goes through the mangle.

Just a thought.

  1. Hehe. Assuming the cogs symbolise a process or algorithm being applied to your data, surely a straight copy shouldn’t really call for a set of cogs? How about two pieces of paper, with the second one being written by a pen copying the first one?
