SSIS Loop through folders with specific names

SSIS Loop through folders with specific names

I am attempting to loop through files in folders with the root of the name as tndlogs for example tndlogs, tndlogs0,
 tndlogs1. The problem that I run into is that the SSIS expression language does not support wild card characters so
 using tndlogs* looks for a specific folder named tndlogs*. My thought is to  read
 all directory names that meet this criteria into a recordset and loop through them but how would I go about getting this list?

RE: SSIS Loop through folders with specific names

What i would do is this:

Loop through all folders.  Then on each iteration run a small bit of VB script that checks to see if the folder name meets your spec.

If it does - set a variable to true, if not set it to false.

The continue within the iteration of folders but only do stuff where the variable is true (using a flow constraint).

Hope this helps

RE: SSIS Loop through folders with specific names

Thanks for all the help, I wrote a simple c# script task to pull the shared directories from the computer in question then looped through each directory and added to a collection object if it contained the criteria in its name.
