ssis - execute stored procedure

I am trying to figure out how to execute a stored procedure from ssis. I have a working stored procedure. It has no parameters. I want to somehow execute it fro an ssis package. I found something at another site that says: Another option is to use expressions in the execute sql task editor.  You could create an expression for the SqlStatementSource property.  A simple example:"exec usp_SomeProc @somevar = '"+ @[User::strSomeVar]+"'"
but I could not figure out how to do that. I just want a simple EXEC dbo.usp_MAINTAIN_UDF_HISTORY.

if this is a data flow task, with ole db source,
set data access mode as "SQL Command"
and in sql command text, write like this:
exec mySP

instead of mySP write your stored procedure name,

if your stored procedure has any parameters you should use question mark as each of parameters. but if there is no parameter, just user exec mySP.

Try using

"
SET FMTONLY ON
SET NOCOUNT ON

exec usp_SomeProc @somevar = '"+ @[User::strSomeVar]+"'"

I was already using SET NOCOUNT ON. Actually I think I may have it figured out. I used execute sql task . And the trick was for the sql command, I had to spell out execute. So the command was
EXECUTE dbo.usp_MAINTAIN_UDF_HISTORY. It worked. Now I am trying to figure out how to make it send me an email if it fails.

Dear qbjgqbjg:

just use a simple Execute SQL Task and type in exec SP_name and it should work fine

check image below, i am using it to call a store procedure and its working fine.

I had already tried it with EXEC  dbo.usp_MAINTAIN_UDF_HISTORY in the execute sql task. It did not work. It produced an error.  EXECUTE dbo.usp_MAINTAIN_UDF_HISTORY does work.
We are using sql server 2005. So maybe there is a difference.
