Hi,
that depends on where in the SSIS package you want to count.
In the control flow area you will have to use a variable with type INT and a default of 0 and update this either through a script task or executing some kind of dummy SQL using expressions to set the variable.
If you want to count inside data flows you can use the built-in row count transformation where you also need a INT variable.
In the latter case you have to use script/execute SQL tasks in the control flow if you have your data flow run in a loop to get an overall count as the next dataflow loop will overwrite the RowCount variable.

1  Create a variable called iFileCount (or whatever floats your boat), and set it to zero.
2  In your For..Each File Loop create a Script task, with iFileCount as a read-write variable, that goes like this...

Dts.Variables("iFileCount").Value = Dts.Variables("iFileCount").Value + 1

Open in new window


3  If your package doesn't use a For..Each file loop, then spell out what you're doing.
