Update reference table in SSIS 2005 fuzzy lookup at runtime based on a variable

Can the reference table be updated based on some variable at runtime? In one of the SSIS I want a variable to determine what table to use as a reference table in the Fuzzy lookup. I was hoping to write multiple views and use those as reference table based on the value of a variable but I could not find a way to change the reference table name at runtime. Ideally, I would like to use the same table and have a filter (where ColX = Variable) but multiple views would be acceptable too.

I am using SQL Server 2005.

I would have to trim it down quite a bit as the problem area is just a small piece. However, the problem is very generic. In the Fuzzy Logic data step we need to pick a table/view as a reference table. This table is to be picked at design stage. I am trying to find a way to change it at runtime based on some variable.

We ended up using one of the reference table column as "Exact Match". That changes the similarity and Confidence but we could deal with that. I could not find a way to change the reference table name at runtime.
