Is it possible to use channel cache variables in a source file path?  For instance, I would like to use a path like this:  \\myserver\c$\Temp\DynamicFolderTest\{cc:FolderYear)\*.csv

I'm not having success with this method.

You can use a channel cache variable in a file path on the source node. The format that you have is very close, but it looks like you have a close parenthesis at the end, rather than a close curly brace.  Try this:

\\myserver\c$\Temp\DynamicFolderTest\{cc:FolderYear}\*.csv

Also, make sure that you have the channel cache variable set to something that is part of a valid path.  If you hit 'Test Path' it should substitute the current channel cache value for the entry in your path, and display if it found the path or not.
