SSIS - Extract a Dynamicaly Created Zip File

SSIS - Extract a Dynamicaly Created Zip File

I have a third party application that generates a dynamically created zip file in the following format (<FileName>.csv_2015-12-09_21-17-47.zip) I want a expression or task that will extract this file in the same location, but each time this file is generated it has a different timestamp. How can I create an expression to do a "Like" each time it is put in this folder. The rest of my process will move it out of the folder so each day only one file will be generated. I have experimented with the Extract Zip File task, which does work if I can get the file name correct and constant. I have also experimented with the For Each Container but have not found the correct solution.

Any ideas will be appreciated. Thank You!

Just add script task and in VB or C#
if your file YourFileName.csv_2015-12-09_21-17-47.zip
In VB it would be


Dim fileFolder As String 
Dim dirDest As DirectoryInfo = New DirectoryInfo(fileFolder)

For Each f In GetFiles("YourFileName.csv*.zip")  
' unzip your file there

RE: SSIS - Extract a Dynamicaly Created Zip File

you can do this with for each loop using file enumerator

1. use wildcard to get your filenames
2. store filename in variable
3. unzip your file using filename stored in variable
