Path Properties

The data flow objects in the Microsoft SQL Server Integration Services object model have common properties and custom properties at the level of the component, inputs and outputs, and input columns and output columns. Many properties have read-only values that are assigned at run time by the data flow engine.

This topic lists and describes the custom properties of the paths that connect data flow objects.
