Referring SSIS Variables from SSIS Script Task

Today I got a very valued feedback from a reader of my SSIS 2012 book, and based on that feedback I’ve found that I had a mistake in one of the exersizes of the book. an important note was not mentioned there.

So in this post I want to mention that and applogize for any inconvinence that it caused for readers of my book.


If you want to refer to a package variable from SSIS Script Task, the golden rule is that variable name is Case Sensitive!



In chapter 2 of the book Microsoft SQL Server 2012 Integration Services: An Expert Cookbook, in page 38 (the exersize starts from page 36), in step 13 the script mentioned, but we forgot to mention that variable name is case sensitive.

so if you get an error out of this script please double check case sensitivity of it.

in below I highlighted the part the I am talking about.


I apologize again for the mistake that we didn’t mentioned this important note there.
