I have developed a Query in SQL Server 2008 which I am using with the SQL Im/Export Wizard.   My SQL Query works fine and the SSIS Package I created works fine as well.  However, every time I run the package, I want to change the date that is set in the WHERE Clause of my Query.  For instance, my package SELECTS the name, wages & check number WHERE checkdate = 2010-03-05 and this query runs fine.  Now when I run the saved SQL Server Integration Service (SSIS) package, it allows me to "Set Value" for a variable inside the Package.  There is a special syntax which needs to be observed in entering the path (i.e. it is not enough to say: C:\Data\Package Name\Variable Name). The syntax to run the package with the new value for the Variable is like this:
"dtexec /f mypackage.dtsx /set \package.variables[myvariable].Value;myvalue"

This is not working. What am I missing?
    -- SUM(case Type_
                 -- When 'E' then CAST(round(T.Qty * P.STDUNITRATE*100,0)
				 -- AS int)    
                 -- WHEN 'EB' THEN LEFT(CAST((T.TranAmt * 100) AS
                 -- VARCHAR(20)),10) 
                 -- Else 0
              --End) as Wages,
     SUM(case T.Type_
                  When 'DE' then LEFT(CAST((T.Tranamt*100) AS 
                  Else 0
              End) as Benefits,
              LEFT(P.ChkNbr,10) AS CHK
 FROM GLSetup G, employee E
	  JOIN PRDoc P ON E.EmpId = P.EmpId
		AND P.DocType = 'CK'
	  JOIN W2EmpName W ON E.EmpId = W.EmpId
	  --JOIN PayPeriod A ON A.LUpd_DateTime = P.ChkDate
