Dear Friend,
I made a simple SSIS package for you.
Create a new SSIS Project, add the attached package (rename it to dtsx).
Update the flatfile connection and join an see results.
Inside script you can use warning or error events.
Try to delete or rename the text file to test the package.

Hi coventri,
Your goal, if the file is not there, is to fail the SSA job. To accomplish this in SSIS you can simply create a Script Task that has a result of Failure. See below.
You can evaluate conditions in your Script Task to determine if you want to fail or continue. Like checking the value of a variable.
Make sure your SSIS package property, MaximumErrorCount is set to 1. In the Control Flow window, click in the open space and then open the properties tab.

 the option Failure is one property of DTS Result.
Check the last line of code... where you can set to sucess as I made in the script, or set as a failure.
As I told you, you have several alternatives, let me know if you have some doubts.
