Experts,

I am Extremely NEW to SSIS (I'm using v2010)

I have a csv file I've exported data into but the consumer of this file requires a footer record. Its just a static piece of text.   "end_of_file"
The csv is set up to put any text value in quotes and the header record is no exception, it needs to be in quotes.

I've been online and attempted many different methods to no avail.

This is the last piece to finish this assignment. Any assistance is greatly appreciated.

Thanks in advance.

You can use a couple of lines of .NET code in a Script Task to achieve that.

In your Control Flow, connect a Script Task with the Data Flow Transformation that creates the flat file.  You'll also need a package variable that contains the name and path of the output file.  Put that variable in the ReadOnlyVariables property of the Script Task.

Then click the Edit Script button and use code similar to this:

string outfile = Dts.Variables["outfile"].Value.ToString();
System.IO.StreamWriter sw = System.IO.File.AppendText(outfile);
sw.Write("\"end_of_file\"");
sw.Close();

Open in new window

This code assumes that the package variable is called "outfile".
