SSIS: get table names from source MySQL database

Last Modified: 2016-02-15
Hi experts,

I am learning SSIS (Visual Studio 13, SSDT).  I plan to populate a SQL Server database on my local machine with tables from a remote MySQL server.  

I connected to the MySQL server using an ODBC connection and successfully created and populated a single named table on my local MSSQL database (OLE DB connection).  

So far so good.  Now I want to iterate thru all the MySQL tables in the source database and do the same.  How would I do that?
