Prompt and pass parameter to a SSIS job

I have a SQL statement that I run manually each day and have to change one or more pieces of information such as the date when I run it.

The results of the statement generates a "|" delimited file.

Is it possible to set this up as an SSIS that will prompt for parameters?

Thanks

you want to pass the delimiter dinamically?!
Explain me better what you want!

If I have a SQL statement that has a where statement that selects based on a particular country code I want the job to display a prompt asking to enter the country code and when the user enters the code the statement will run and generate a file based on the country code entered.

Are you planning on installing SSIS on every users workstation?  That could be a lot of licenses.

No, only a couple of users need to run this process.

It is a little unorthodox, but you should be able to build a script task with some VB.NET code to allow for input from the user.  The value could then be assigned to a Global Variable.

A better aproach would be to automate this process by setting the value programatically without user intervention.  Failing that at least pass in the value as a parameter.

Thanks for the feedback.

I asked the question more as "could it be done" before I determined if that was a direction to go.

Clearly from your comments this is not the best approach to my issue.

A simple .NET app will will be a much better solution.

Thanks again!

Absolutely.  SSIS packages are for the most part best left unattended.
