import multiple accessfiles in dts

P: n/a
Hi,

How can i import multiple accessfiles in sql server 2000 by using a dts
package?

The dts package should import files with the most current date in a
directory (not today's date). The date can be found in the name, e.g.:
<companyname>_20041214.mdb.

Also i would like to use the companyname from the filename to fill in a
empty column called companyname, so i can import all files into one
normalized table.

The files are placed in on a root drive.

If someone can help me on this i would be very happy.

Thnx.

Hi

The following should get you started:
http://www.sqldts.com/default.aspx?292
http://www.sqldts.com/default.aspx?248
http://www.sqldts.com/default.aspx?201

You can store the company name in a global variable, then use an activeX
transform to populate a column from that global variable.
