Good morning,

I have three loops that i need to run to get files from folders. I have one variable called @table_name that i want to use to update the table, (thru a sp). and input the file name that i just looped thru in the table. The table name will change for each file type.  so, i'll use dynamic sql in the sp, and pass in the variable name (table). Initially this works fine, but i can't figure out the best way to update the variable. Would it be better to do this with a derrived column ? though, i though that would work, i keep getting an error (something about conversion).

>can't figure out the best way to update the variable.
Note quite following you, but to update a variable 'on the fly' in SSIS create a script task, pass the variable that has the value as read only, pass the variable name to be updated as read-write, and using VB code the script will go like this:

Dts.Variable("variable_name_to_write_to").Value = Dts.Variable("variable_name_to_write_from").Value

I don't understand? I didn't get the answer I was looking for... Should I give the credit anyway?

And you didn't respond to expert comments either.  So, please spell out how we would know 'what you are looking for' if there is no follow-up between asker and expert.  Vulcan mind meld?  The Force?   Most experts are not going to write a book based on a five line question with no follow-ups.

I'm not intentionally trying to be rude here, but askers have an obligation to work with the experts that are trying to help.
