Using file system task to check if file exists

Hi @mike01

I'm not in work till Monday now but will send you an email. I was still getting the script file activating the pass even though the file was not present, so it should have triggered a fail.I got so used to VB I just keep using it, everyone seem to use c#, I see the similarity with vb, can use it but would be a lot slower to build things.

Thanks

I now have this section of the package working, It seems the main issue was the file.exists bit where I was using the file name only variable, but you have to use the complete path.

I had some extra SQL tasks to add on the success section of the precedent constraint. It now works when a file is there and fires the fail section if the file is not there, so all good.

@mike01 I couldn't open you're package on my home pc as I don't have the application, and am not able to send it into my work due to security issues with file attachments, forgot about that, but thanks for sending that too me.

Thanks
