    Hello All,
    I am using SSIS For Each File Enumerator in For Each Loop Container.
    I have created a folder and I have 60 text files into that folder which I want to integrate into one SQL server 2008 table.
    I can do so with ForEach Loop container.
    Now, at the end of the month I will have more 30 files into the folder which I will require to add to the same table.
    While doing so, I do not want the previous 60 files to get integrated again.
    Only the new files should get integrated into the table.
    How can I achieve this? Where will I need to specify the condition to take the newer files only?
    My datafile names are according to the date: dt7_08072009, dt7_08082009,dt_708092009 etc.

    Why don't you move the processed files to an archive folder?

    Could you please tell me how to do it?

    You already have a FOR EACH container where you go through each file and do the processing.
    Can't you add another FOR EACH container after the above container and go through each file and move to another folder.
    If you already have already processed files you may have to manually move them (only once)
    Hope this helps.
