    I have used the File Properties Task before with a huge success in a similar scenario.

    Highly recommend it.

  • Check this link and check step 2 you will see code that reads the File properties something like

        Public Sub Main()
            ' Add your code here
            Dim LastSlashPosition As Integer
            Dim strPointer As Integer
            Dim strLen As Integer
            Dim strFilePath As String
            Dim strFileName As String
            Dim strLenFullFileName As Integer
            Dim strFileExtension As String
            Dim strPathAndFileName As String = Dts.Variables("uVar_CurrentFileName").Value.ToString()
            If File.Exists(strPathAndFileName) Then
                'FileDate = File.GetLastWriteTime(strPathAndFileName)
                strLen = Len(strPathAndFileName)
                LastSlashPosition = strPathAndFileName.LastIndexOf("\")
                strPointer = strLen - (LastSlashPosition + 1)
                strFilePath = Left(strPathAndFileName, strLen - strPointer - 1)
                strFileName = Right(strPathAndFileName, strPointer)
                strLenFullFileName = Len(strFileName)
                strLen = strFileName.IndexOf(".")
                strFileExtension = Right(strFileName, (strLenFullFileName - strLen - 1))
                strFileName = Left(strFileName, strLen)
                Dts.Variables("uVar_PathFileName").Value = strPathAndFileName
                Dts.Variables("uVar_Path").Value = strFilePath
                Dts.Variables("uVar_FileName").Value = strFileName
                Dts.Variables("uVar_FileExtension").Value = strFileExtension
                Dts.Variables("uVar_DateCreated").Value = File.GetCreationTime(strPathAndFileName)
                Dts.Variables("uVar_DateModified").Value = File.GetLastWriteTime(strPathAndFileName)
            End If
            Dts.TaskResult = ScriptResults.Success
        End Sub
