Do you mean how to capture the file name of the files in the loop?  Have a look at the Variable Mappings page of the ForEach Loop properties.  Specify a package variable (of type string) with index 0.  While looping, that variable will then contain the name (or path + name, depending on what you selected in the Collection page)

Or do you really need an increasing integer?  In that case, create a package variable of type Int32 and use a Script Task in your loop to increase it by 1.
