Hi guys,

I've been trying to set up a package in SSIS to import all *.txt files in a folder. Here is what I've done:

ForEach Loop container with data flow task within
In the ForEach, I want the package to loop through all files and look for wildcard .txt files and offset columns based on a "|" delimiter. Have severe trouble getting everything to work. Can I get help specifically in the Expressions portion of the Foreach loop editor? I want to have a "connection string" property but it never populates.

Please explain how you would set this up step by step or if I'm doing anything wrong.
