I'm using DTS to export from SQL Server to text file(about 1,000,000 rows).
I want to change the target file dynamic from the VB Script on runtime, so i can put only 2,000 rows for each file.
Is there any easy way to do that?

You could write your transform to take as a source a Stored Proc that only returns a fraction of your data. Then, from VB or VBA you create a Transformation Object, load your transformation and fire a few times, passing different parameters to the SP
(and changing the target file-name).

I did already launch Packages from VB (Scrip), and change connection (including text file connections) settings like the filename.
You could combine this, in creating a DTS that opens your existing package, changes the target filename, and execute the package (your need to control the "next" 2000 rows using a Proc or View using TOP 2000 and a where clause to ensure rows are not returned twice).

To open and execute a package, you need to do somethings like this:
DIM objPackage
SET objPackage = CreateObject("DTS.Package")
objPackage.LoadFromSQLServer ( "here comes a series of parameters like server, packagename, username and password")
objPackage.Execute
Set objPackage = NOTHING

to access/change the connection settings, you need to analyse the package properties, check the Connections collections to find your file, and there you need to change the ConnectionSource (or similar)

Hope this helps
