    I have a powershell file (myFile.ps1) with this command (launch a dtexec):

    dtexec /DTS "\MSDB\mydts" /SERVER localhost /MAXCONCURRENT " -1 " /CHECKPOINTING OFF /REPORTING V /set \package.variables[x_TempFile].Value;$TempFile

    but I have this error:
    Argument for ""package.variables[x_TempFile].Value"" for option "set" is not valid

    Which is the correct way to set a variable (in my case the name of file)?

    In a .cmd I use
    set TempFile="C:\Temp\a.xml"
    dtexec /DTS "\MSDB\mydts" /SERVER localhost /MAXCONCURRENT " -1 " /CHECKPOINTING OFF /REPORTING V /set \package.variables[x_TempFile].Value;%TempFile%

    and it's ok, but I'm not able to do the same in powershell.

    I haven't tried this, but sometimes parsing problems are overcome by constructing a string outside the cmd. Maybe something like this could work:
    $pv = "\package.variables[x_TempFile].Value;'C:\Temp\a.xml'"
    dtexec /DTS "\MSDB\mydts" /SERVER localhost /MAXCONCURRENT " -1 " /CHECKPOINTING OFF /REPORTING V /set $pv

    I would recommend to use opening and closing single qoutes after the /set parameter including the semicolon ";".

    .. /set '\package.variables[x_TempFile].Value;'+$TempFile

    This will give the result which I think is what you're looking for:


    Hope this works for you.
