Ok, lots of progress on the last solution.  I have the flow working now properly.  I am pulling multiple flatfiles from ftp, processing them, appending them to table in db.  Now I need to archive all the files that are processed with a FOREACH LOOP CONTAINER.  This is where I am stuck.

I have searched various things and have not found a working solution yet.  Any assistance is most appreciated.  

Here is a diagram of the working flow.

Add a ForEach Loop Container component in your SSIS project

Edit it and in the ForEchLoop Editor select Collection

Specifify Foreach File Enumerator as the Enumerator

Specify the name of an already created String variable in Variable Mappings

Insert a File System Task component into the center of the above ForEach loop container

Set the File System Task operation to Move File

Set IsSourcePathVriable = True

Set SourceVariable to the variable specified in Variable Mappings in ForEach Loop container

In the FileEnumerator specify the folder in where the files to be archived exist

In the File System Task specifiy the Destination to where the files should be archived

Ok, I have the FOREACH lOOP CONTAINER setup.  The job works all the way through without errors, however the files do not get moved to the Archived Folder.

Here is an image of the current flow:

I got this warning even though it executed:

"Warning: The For Each File enumerator is empty. The For Each File enumerator did not find any files that matched the file pattern, or the specified directory was empty."

GOT IT!   I just went back and checked all the variable paths again and it started working.  I must have had an extra space or dash in the qualifier perhaps.  

Thanks for the assistance!!
