SSIS: Use Variable in C# Script task

Hi there,

How can I pass the following user defined variable to a C# script task. It's basically the folder path:

User defined variable is:
User::Source_Folder = \\14.100.26.12\dashboard

Open in new window


and the C# code I want to replace it with is the path as indicated below:
        public void Main()
        {
            string[] files = System.IO.Directory.GetFiles(@"\\14.100.26.12\dashboard", "AGINGANALYSIS*.txt", System.IO.SearchOption.TopDirectoryOnly);
            System.IO.FileInfo finf;

Open in new window


Thanks,

OS

You are accessing the variables using the Dts.Variables collection.
Create a string variable in your C# code and access the variable using this code:
string sourcePath;
sourcePath = (string) Dts.Variables["Source_Folder"].Value;
string[] files = System.IO.Directory.GetFiles(sourcePath, "AGINGANALYSIS*.txt", System.IO.SearchOption.TopDirectoryOnly);

Thanks Chaau. I knew I had to assign the SSIS variables to a declared variable inside the script but was frustrated by the syntax.
