Move DTS package to another server

P: n/a
I'm building a DTS package on my development server which I want to
move to my test server. I can save the file and import it, but there
are connections etc that will be named differently.

Is there a quick and easy way of changing the names of connections ? I
also have some CSV files used for import/export (quicker than table
copy for my needs), but again I will need to change the path.

How can I do this without having to check each component ?

Thanks

Have a look at some of these articles:

One possible approach is to define global variables in the packages for the
connection properties. Then at the start of the package, set the connection
properties with a Dynamic Properties task. Since you can specify global
variable values on the command line using DTSRUN.EXE, this is also a handy
way to pass in the properties from a batch file.
