    Hi @BK ,

    Welcome to Microsoft Q&A Platform. Thank you for posting query here.

    You can have your filename and table name mapping defined in some config table and then lookup that table using Lookup activity. use ForEach activity to iterate over that lookup data and inside ForEach activity use Copy activity

    Your datasets inside Copy activity(source dataset & sink dataset) should be parameterized to dynamically points your file and table.

    Since your are parameterizing your datasets you will use single dataset to point all files dynamically and single dataset to point to all tables dynamically.

    Hope this will help. Please let us know if any further queries.
