Write Variables To Simple Table

This Specification Flow Task gets data from a set of Variables, and writes them to a Simple Table.

The task relies on Variables having a common prefix. This is the portion of the Variable name after the default DWVariable, but before any distinguishing suffix.

For example:

DWVariableType1

Properties
