    Hey "dude",

    Your keyboard seems to miss some letters

    You can't set and use variables reliably in the same transformation, you have to set them in a separate transformation.
    And when you set them you have to use some kind of "execute for each row" functionality to execute the rest of the flow (or you will not see many different values of the variable).

    Have a look e.g. at the "Process all tables" example in the samples\jobs directory in your local installation.
