I have an ssis package that imports data from text files to sql tables.
However there is also a single line text file that contains a unique value for that 'set' of text files I'm reading in.
I'm struggling with finding a simple way to read this value from a text file into a variable for use elsewhere in the package.

Suggestions?

You could use a script task to read a line from the file.

using (System.IO.StreamReader rdr = new System.IO.StreamReader(@"C:\Files\out.txt"))
{
Dts.Variables["User::TestString"].Value = rdr.ReadLine();
}

Thanks for all of the help. I ended up doing something like this:

If File.Exists(lstrFileName) Then

' Get the one line that has AS OF DATE
For Each line As String In File.ReadAllLines(lstrFileName)
If line.Contains("AS OF DATE") Then
lstrFileContent = line
End If
Next line

'Look inside the string for the date
Dim lintStart As Integer = InStr(lstrFileContent, "DATE")
'MsgBox("lintStart " & lintStart)

Dim lstrFileAsOfDate As String = lstrFileContent.Substring((lintStart + 11), 8)

Dts.Variables("strFileAsOfDate").Value = lstrFileAsOfDate

'MsgBox("datFileAsOfDate " & Dts.Variables("datFileAsOfDate").Value)

Dts.Variables("blnContinue").Value = True

Else

Dts.Variables("blnContinue").Value = False

End If

Since we are bring text into a table, is there a way in SSIS to read a certain column and then a certain row? This would work well for me.


THANKS,

You can read specific row or nth row using Script component. For where clause you have to use condition split.
