connectionstring gets populated unwillingly

    Hi,
    I hav eplaced an expression for the flat file connection as below

    @[User::FileDirectory] + @[User::FileName]

    This is supposed to be used instead of the ConnectionString property of the flat file connection.

    You can see that I have created two variables.

    The variable
    @[User::FileDirectory] is set to the directory. i.e. I have hardcoded the path to it and assigned it to this variable.

    The variable @[User::FileName] is picked up automatically.

    The question is:

    When I go to the properties of the flat file connection, I delete the value inside the connectionstring property becuase there is now the expression which is set to the connectionstring.
    But when I come back to this property then I am not sure why the connectionstring property gets populated with the directory that I hardcoded to the variable.

    Many thanks

    Have you assigned any default value while creating these variables?
