Hi,

I am very new to all this.

I followed this link:
http://agilebi.com/jwelch/2009/11/29/ssis-101-viewing-variable-values-at-runtime/

I disabled the task within the package that I did not want included.

My question is how do you read this?
I am trying to understand
Why does it not show the values of what is being passed?

Please look at my snapshot.

Thanks

It looks perfectly fine! The first parameter User:FileIDS looks like it's received the ResultSet of the Execute SQL Task (GetFileID FromDtabase) fine. Of course it's an object so you don't see the actual result set but you can examine it further by expanding the variable (click on the plus sign) to see for instance the row-count etc.

The second parameter User::FileID doesn't show any value because it's used in the context of your Foreach Loop Container, so although it's accessible at the package level, but it won't be set until the first iteration of your loop is completed.

Hope that makes sense.

Ok,

If I copy the SQLStatement in the Execute SQL Task (GetFileID FromDtabase) to: SQL Server using Query

I can see that there are 3 with a 36 count = 108 records

Why I can not see that when I do this view variables?

I am selecting
Set Breakpoints:
Break when the container receives the OnPostExecute event

Is that the wrong event?
I am just trying to understand better

Thanks

No you're not doing anything wrong. The only thing is that in order to access individual rows in your result set you need to iterate through the set row-by-row. That's where the loop container comes into play. You can verify each FileID in each row by binding the User::FileID to the first column of your result set (index 0) within the loop container and and set a break point at entry to each iteration of the loop container.
