Create a new package called Dinosaur recount. As the package name suggests, we're going to count the number of dinosaurs, so first create a variable called DinoCount to hold this information:
The variable to hold the number of dinosaurs.
Now create a data flow task for the package:
The data flow task will pipe the dinosaurs imported into a row count transformation, which should store the count of rows imported in the DinoCount variable.
Add a script control flow task which displays the number of dinosaurs found:
|The control flow ...||... and what it should show.|
Don't forget to assign the DinoCount variable to the script task as a ReadOnly variable, so that you can access its value in code.
Close the package down!
