I need to add an unreleated footer line to the bottom of a text file I'm already extraciting using a SSIS package.

The extracted file needs to look like this:

1321 | Cushions | CC1234/01| In Stock | £120.00 | Percentage Discount | 50 | etc.
1321 | Cushions | CC1234/01| In Stock | £120.00 | Percentage Discount | 50 | etc.
1321 | Cushions | CC1234/01| In Stock | £120.00 | Percentage Discount | 50 | etc.
1321 | Cushions | CC1234/01| In Stock | £120.00 | Percentage Discount | 50 | etc.
1321 | Cushions | CC1234/01| In Stock | £120.00 | Percentage Discount | 50 | etc.
FTR | ROW COUNT

The footer row has a differnet number of columns and different data type from the rest of the extract. So I can't just populate the first row of the source table. So:

1. How do I ammend the SSIS package to write a custom footer row to the text file after the rest of the data is written?
2. What expression will give me a number of rows in the data extract minus the footer row?

Dear User,
I made an example for you.
1. Create a new SSIS Solution or add the attached package to one solution.
2. Update the cmSQL connection and SSIS variable with filepath + filename.

Helped?
