1. I am extracting a zip file in a folder. I want to read all the extracted file names from that folder in a script task (string[] file_names = Directory.GetFiles(@"c:\MyDir\", "*.pdf");)).
2. Now, I want to write the array file_names in an SSIS object type variable, so that I can insert each file name in a table and use it for my comparison and further processing.

How do I accomplish step 2 ?

You can do step 1 without a script task, using a "FOR EACH LOOP Container"

Anyway if you still want to use a script task, please post your current FULL script, so I can test and integrate step 2.
