This is for a migration from 9 to 10 and the .Net date format changes.

We use Sql Server 2008R2 for our BPA 9 server.  I need to locate the tasks that are using the Format Date function and the version 9 month and minute format characters before we migrate to BPA 10.

 I found the Task steps in the taskconstructs table but the table uses a resourceid.  Where is the resourceid associated with the task name so that I can open up the task builder gui and change the date format.  I don't want to change it directly in the database.

Thanks in advance

Jim,
ResourceID is the TaskID. It is actually better than the Task Name since Task name can be changed. I suggest you use this over Task name.

Easiest way: In SMC, go to Repository/Tasks and just switch the views to Grid, then right-click on any of the table headers and enable viewing the IDs. Then you can locate your Task.

Hard way: Right click on each task, and 'goto' -> Details and TaskID is available there.

Optional way: If you prefer to use names, then this can be looked up in the root automateconstructs table.

Hope this helps.
