DTS - ActiveX script table lookup

Can I alter the following ActiveX script to
take the value currently in DTSDestination (an integer),
look up a name from a reference table and store that name
instead of the reference number to the destination table?

'  Copy each source column to the destination column
Function Main()
     DTSDestination("FinanceID") = DTSSource("Col001")
     Main = DTSTransformStat_OK
End Function

Yes you can.
The 'Lookups' tab of the datapump alows you to define lookup queries to other tables (even using other connections)
The syntax of the lookup query is simple: Select name from <yourtable> where <yourkey>=?
Each ? will correspond to a parameter when the lookup is called. Order is important as there is no parameter naming.
This lookup can be used in the activeX script by executing the lookup using the key value as parameter. probably looks something like DTSDestination("myName")=DTSLookups("MyLookup").execute(DTSSource("Col001"))
Don't know the exact syntac from the top of my head. Once the lookup is defined, use drag & drop to use it in the script.
