simple : insert row then set parameter to scope_identity

im trying to insert a new row inside an execute sql task and store the scope_identity() into a variable, this is proving harder than I would have thought.

I have amanged to store it to a result set by doing

Insert into &.. ;
Select scope_identity();

 But then I have to use a loop to get the individual column from the result set, I dont like doing this because I only have one row so seems silly to loop through one row..

If you have any ideas, it would be appreciated.
