SSIS naming conventions in a nice copy paste format

I do love a naming convention 🙂 and I’m a big fan of the SSIS naming conventions for tasks and I tend to keep these inside a template package so I don’t have to try to remember them all.

Most sites list these naming conventions in tables and it doesn’t quite work for SSIS’ text blocks.
