Hello there, I have mapped a variable in a Execute SQL task,

The parameter name is 0

I am using the below script

declare @fileVariable varchar(100)
declare @file varchar(100)

set @fileVariable = ?

select @file = SUBSTRING (@fileVariable, CHARINDEX('r\cu', @fileVariable) +1, LEN(@fileVariable))

select @file = right(@file, len(@file) -charindex('\', @file))

delete customer_staging where filename = @file

and I get the following error

The query failed to parse. The batch could not be analysed because of compile errors.

The code works fine ssms, could someone point me in the right direction please.

Check ByPassPrepare property for Execute SQL Task.

Refer to ..

You may have ByPassPrepare set to false. Cannot parse due to parameter.

You may be better off making code batch a procedure and then making filevariable as a parameter Then call it as

EXEC Procname ?
and then map parameter 0 to your variable.
This worked for me
