Hi,<BR><BR>I&#039;ve created a ms-sql7 dts package to create and send a flat (txt) file from a couple of tables in my DB. HOWEVER, as this dts is run once an hour there could be times when the file is empty...in which case I don&#039;t want to send it. Is there a way to add in another step before the email send, to check if the txt file is empty or not? I&#039;m a bit new to dts....<BR><BR>thanks,<BR><BR>Patch
