    Hi All,

    Please be kind. This is my first post and I am new to Powershell.
    I am executing a Powershell script from my SSIS package by using the Process Task transformation.
    I am trying to Pass a SSIS variable to Process Task so it will use the variable to download the correct file.
    The download from a static or hardcoded file name works fine if it is already in the PS script. It fails when I try to pass the
    variable to the script. Can anyone explain or show me how to pass a variable to a PS script using SSIS?
    I commented out several attempts with the ## sign.

    Thank you in advance very much.

    Here is my code:
    ## File being downloaded is the Historic Weather text file – file format (DS3505)
    ## This will down load a file that was created by the NCDC (National Climate Data Center) because it was
    ## manaully requested for a specifc STATE, YEAR on the weather website.

    $shell_app=new-object -com shell.application
    echo "Error Creating Shell Application"
    exit 99
    $clnt = new-object System.Net.WebClient
    echo "Error Creating WebClient"
    exit 99

    ## inside varible works fine
    ##set-variable -name newfilename -value "3816995904168dat.txt"
    ##$file = get-variable -value newfilename

    ## trying to get it to pass from the ssis task Execute proccess task to powershell is the problem

    $file = $ssis.variables["User];

    ##$file = Get-Variable -value $SelectedFileName
    ###$file = $ssis Variables SelectedFileName

    $url = "" + "$file"

    $file_mypath = "x:\SQL\DATA\NDW\Weather\Historical\SelectedHistoricWeather" + "\$file"

    echo "Error Obtaining File Location"
    exit 99
    $clnt.DownloadFile($url, $file_mypath)

    ## END OF CODE

    It seem to me that you are not passing the parameter correctly. I would start looking here. I have no experience with SSIS jobs.
