If you run packages manually and want the ability to select a file
through a GUI, this is for you. This is a simple custom task that pops
up a standard windows open file dialog box when executed. It assigns the chosen filename
to a global variable for use within the package.
|Description||Type a description for the task. This description becomes the label on the design sheet.
|Dialog Title||Specify the text shown in the title bar of the run-time dialog.
|Default File||Specify a default file and path that will be selected when opening the run-time dialog for the first time. Optional.
|Filters||Add or Delete file filters from the list. The pipe character delimits between the display description and the actual filter.
|Default Filter||Select the default file filter to be used by the run-time dialog.
|Global Variable||Specify the global variable used to store the selected filename and path.
The Open File Dialog Custom Task is available for download here.
