Win32::SqlServer::DTS::Assignment::INI is a subclass of Win32::SqlServer::DTS::Assignment superclass. It represents a DTS DynamicPropertiesTaskAssignment object that has the properties SourceIniFileFileName, SourceIniFileKey and SourceIniFileSection defined.

Unless you want to extend the DTS API is quite probably that you're going to use Win32::SqlServer::DTS::Assignment::INI returned by the get_properties method from Win32::SqlServer::DTS::Task::DynamicProperty class.




Inherits all methods from Win32::SqlServer::DTS::Assignment.


Extends superclass method new by modifying the source attribute.


Overrided method from Win32::SqlServer::DTS::Assignment class. It will returns a result depending on the context the method was invoked. in a scalar context, it will return a string with the results of the methods get_filename, get_section and get_key respectivally, separated by points and quoted with square brackets. In a list context, it will return a list with the three values of the methods get_filename, get_section and get_keys, in this order.

See Win32::SqlServer::DTS::Assignment method for more information about how a property is setup using a Dynamic Properties Task Assignment.


Returns a string with the complete pathname and filename of the INI files that will be read by the Win32::SqlServer::DTS::Assignment::INI object.


Returns a string with the section of the INI file returned by the get_filename method.


Returns a string with the key defined in the section returned by the get_section method.

  • MSDN on Microsoft website and MS SQL Server 2000 Books Online are a reference about using DTS' object hierarchy, but one will need to convert examples written in VBScript to Perl code.
