Loading data from multiple files

Loading data from multiple files

Loading data from multiple files

I'm still waiting for SQL Server 2005, but I'm starting to build my package in Visual Studio.

I'm wondering how I should choose between using a ForEach container to loop over all the input files or using a "Multiple Flat Files" connection manager.

Files are CSV with field names on first row.

I have to load a year's historical data.  After I do that and create the logic to produce reports, a secretary will be doing the updates as new data is e-mailed to her each week.

I'm hoping I can provide a way she can just drag all the file icons (five or six at a time) from the e-mail attachments panel directly onto the desktop icon for a Windows application.
