I have an SSIS package that I would like to open and see what it contains. I have never used an SSIS editor to look at what is in an SSIS package. (I have worked with DTS packages years ago).

Thus I have the following questions about looking at and possibly modify an SSIS package that is setup for a swql server 2008 or sql server 2008 R2 database:
1. What type of file should I open? Should I open a file called ssispackage.sln? Is the last node called *.sln?
If not, what type of file should I open?
2. Is there a certain type of visual studio editor that I should use? For example, for an SSRS reports I open a bids editor and for programming in C# I open up an editor that is setuyp for C# programming.
3. Basically can you give me directions on how to open and work with ssis packages that are for sql server 2008 or sql server 2008 r2?
