Hi,

   I am trying to convert a salary field (coming from a comma delimited txt file) into an int so that I can compare it to 20000 in a SSIS conditional split condition.
What I do in the conditional split is this:
Cast([Salary] as int) > cast(20000 as int)

However, I keep getting this error in the attatchment. How can i convert my text field Salary to an int and then compare to 20K?

thx

Derived Column task, create a new column,
   Derived Column = Replace 'the text column name'.
   Expression of (DT_I4) [the text column name].  
Then in downstream Conditional Split use the new column.

Error in attachement?

You must see that all input-record have valid input.  The IsNumeric()-function can be usefull to filter the invallid records out first. What to do with the others depends on your process: neglect with or without (I hope not) error, putting dummy 0 in the place ...

Try
Cast(replace([Salary],',','') as int) > cast(20000 as int)
