I'm currently importing a number of excel files into a SQL database with SSIS

I have now added a field (draft) to the table.

Is it possible as part of the import in SSIS to get the user to input a number and add this number to the new draft field.

Thanks for your help.

Don't believe you can ask user to enter data in SSIS.

One way to include draft field is ..

Put the draft number into another text file or sql table and import this into a SSIS variable. If this is an incremental number you should be able to retrieve the number from sql table and increment for next run.

In your data flow you can use Derived Column task to include the variable as an additional column to export.
