Hi All,

how to implement the below req in SSIS:

how to find out whether any file is present in the specified folder.

Note: we dont know about the file name. Just we need to check whether any files present or not.

Thanks in Advance.

Depends on what you will do next.

You might just be able to use a Foreach loop and put your 'file(s) found' processing inside it.

You may find xp_fileexists extended stored procedure useful. More information on this XP here

as another suggestion; the way we do it is to use a script task with the File.Exists Method

One of the suitable approach would be to watch the said directory using a FileSystemWatcher and fire appropriate events as associated. This seems doable as the system does not deems necessary for a filename to be known.

In any case, File.Exists() cannot be used
