Just interested how the following can be handled?

One source, and destination speficied by global variable, i.e. Access, Excel or CSV.
Is the only way to accomplish this by disabling all Data Pump Tasks by default, and then depending on the global variable, enable for example only the data pump tasks for Access ?

Conditional workflow should work as well:

hmm, if I understand it correctly it would mean I needed 3 branches for a condition that could take 3 possible values, or more if it can have more than 3 values, correct?

For example;

If DTSGlobalVariables("exportTo").Value = "Access" Then
              Main = DTSTaskExecResult_Success
       Else

              Main = DTSTaskExecResult_Failure
       End if

Which really handles only Access if not true pass it on to the next branch which checks to see if we can match a value

If DTSGlobalVariables("exportTo").Value = "Excel" Then
              Main = DTSTaskExecResult_Success
       Else
              Main = DTSTaskExecResult_Failure
       End if

If DTSGlobalVariables("exportTo").Value = "CSV" Then
              Main = DTSTaskExecResult_Success
       Else
              Main = DTSTaskExecResult_Failure
       End if

Is this the idea?

Its workable, but not pretty...

not sure how pretty this is either, I got it to work as per above, but it returns 2 tasks failed, while in reality they did not really fail...

Right, you need ELSE IF statements--you don't want to fail on the else statements....Something like this:

If DTSGlobalVariables("exportTo").Value = "Excel" Then
              Main = DTSTaskExecResult_Success
ElseIf DTSGlobalVariables("exportTo").Value = "CSV" Then
              Main = DTSTaskExecResult_Success
       Else
              Main = DTSTaskExecResult_Failure
End if


You're thinking above is correct though!
