Delete folders based on values from recordset using File System Task

Hi,

I'm relatively new to SSISs.

What I currently have is a dataflow task which loads up my folder names into an ADO variable using an OLE DB Source to a record set.

I have a predefined path of where these folder names sit. e.g - "\\myServer\store\"

What I need to do is loop through my recordset and append each folder name to my path and delete that folder using File System Task? e.g. delete "\\myServer\store\Folder1FromAdoVariable", "\\myServer\store\Folder2FromAdoVariable" etc

I have had a look at a ForEach loop container but no success.

1. Path i sfixed, right?
2. Get Folder name from REcordset.
3. Assign reecordset to Foreach loop
4. Assign field value to variable.
5. Use variable in Folder Connection (Create dynamic connection using expression)
6. delete folder using File System Task.

I think I have followed your instructions.

I now get an error:
Error: Failed to lock variable "\\myServer\store\1471470" for read access with error 0xC0010001 "The variable cannot be found. This occurs when an attempt is made to retrieve a variable from the Variables collection on a container during execution of the package, and the variable is not there. The variable name may have changed or the variable is not being created.".

Folder "1471470" is coming from my recordset which is good.

Could be a scope issue on the variable.

See image (left side).  There's a "scope" section under variables.  Try setting to "Package" if it's not already.

Please make sure the scope of variable at PAckage level not to be at specific task level otherwise you will not get access of those variables define at task level and want to use at other task.

I was putting the file path into the variable name rather than the variable value for my source connection.

All appears to be working okay now.
