      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.
