I wear a lot of hats - Developer, Database Administrator, Help Desk, etc., so I know a lot of things but not a lot about one thing. Experts Exchange gives me answers from people who do know a lot about one thing, in a easy to use platform." -Todd S.

Assuming that it creates a new file everytime you data pump into a text file (not sure as I can't test)

1. You could use an ActiveX task to append two files together


2. You can use the Execute process task to append two files using COPY File1.TXT + File2.TXT OutputFile.TXT

Let me know if you want more detail
Can't do it with the built in text file destination.  You could setup a Microsoft OLEDB driver for text files and do it or use nmcdermaid's workaround.
