this may be out of the scope, but what the heck...we are running a scheduled DTS Package on SQL 7.0 Server to load a text file into our dB. easy, no problems there. The problem is that we sometimes don't have a text file if we have no updates. There is NO text file and that crashes the DTS. Is there anyway to command to run at a scheduled time and only if a text file is also there? thanks!
