I've got a SSIS package which extract data from a table and writes it to a flat text file nightly. I need the resultant file name to include the date it was extracted in the format YYYYDDMM

i.e. today's file would be called: Flat_file_20091507.txt

How do I ammend the SSIS package to dynamically name the file and what expression do I need to use to produce the date in this format?

Here is the example you want to follow (look for this section a little over half way down the page):
"Here is an example of creating a dynamic flat file connection in SSIS. Let's say that every morning we load a textfile from the Receiving Department's network share into a database (for this we will use C:\backups\). The file is always processed the day after the receiving process and is named "DataLoad"+"month"+ "day"+"year.txt" (i.e., DataLoad10112006.txt). We are setting up an SSIS package that retrieves the data from the file and moves it to the database."
