any sample .csv files with the name like 1234_abcd_20090402.csv ,i need the  package to check for the extension and  the filename part before first "_" (1234 in this example)to be numeric..and i am trying to execute a child package for such files...the rest to be archived before the child package starts executing..so i am trying to place an Execute SQL Task before execute package task and using conditional constraints..but i am not sure of the logic..or can i do that using script task also?  if so can you please explain how ...my filename always comes through a global variable named FileName..and i need dynamic flat file source connection to grab all the files from a particular folder...
