In your data flow task that pumps table Customer add a Row Count control, and assign the resulting row count to a variable.

Then in the next control flow, add a precedence constraint that tests the value of that variable, i.e. @@variable_name >= 3, and have the 'true' arrow go to the part that writes the blank text file, 'false' arrow go to the part that SELECT *

Hi,

Take rowcount in Variable and using that variable create Source expression and add where condition to that

'select * from
Customer Where ' +
case when variablevalue > 3 then '1=1'  else = '1=2' end
