Thanks. We'll let you know when a new response is added.

You can change the password for the sa account using the sp_password procedure provided that you have sysadmin rights to the SQL Server. The syntax is:

<pre>exec sp_password @new=’Your New Password’, @loginame=’sa’</pre>

DTS is not normally used for user management.
