Common Examples of SSIS Expressions and Variables


This article helps to enrich the functionality of SSIS. It is possible for example to set properties in tasks using expressions and we can assign values and create code to enrich the SSIS functionality.

This article is oriented to SSIS developers who have experience with basic tasks, but are not familiar with variables, scripts to enrich the functionality of the SSIS and to provide dynamic functionality.

This time we will talk about SSIS expressions, variables, and loops in SSIS. We will use expressions to set values in tasks using variables. We will also learn to create Script code in C#.

We will first talk about SSIS expressions and then we will use SSIS with the script task. Finally, we will work with Loop containers and the script task.
