SSIS : Move file from one folder to other RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hi Guys - 

    In a folder A i have 100's of pdf files. Below is the format:


    Sample file names : IronWorks_137_86678_20191008070511



    My question is, If the companyID in the file name has value of 1 or 7 or 141 or or 103 or 142, I need to move them to folder B. 

    How can i do this in SSIS ? Thanks

  • Hi kkran,

    We could use Foreach Loop Container, Sequence Container(Null), Precedence Constraint,

     File System Task to move specified files one folder A to folder B.

    1.Extract all the filenames of the .pdf files in folder A.

    2.Add expression in precedence constraint.

    • Expression:
    TOKEN( @[User::FileName] , "_",2 )=="1"||TOKEN( @[User::FileName] , "_",2 )=="7"||TOKEN( @[User::FileName] , "_",2 )=="141"||TOKEN( @[User::FileName] , "_",2 )=="142"

    3.Move the specified files from folder A to folder B.

    Best Regards,
