Multiple Flat Files SSIS Connector

John Morehouse shows that there are more SSIS connection managers than meets the eye:

While recently examining an existing SSIS package  before implementing some needed changes I noticed the connection manager for multiple flat files.

Normally, when processing multiple files, I use a sequence container and loop through them.  It’s usually a cumbersome process to setup and you must configure variables.  I was not aware the multiple flat file type of connection manager existed. No wonder because it’s notwithin the normal list.  This handy thing could only be found when I looked under “New Connection”.

    Perhaps a small demo on how to configure it would be nice. I have several packages that use multiple flat files, and it sure would be nice not to have to use loops and variables as you indicated.
