Execute SQL task returning output variables

I am trying to use the Execute Sql Task to retrieve specific date values from the database that are assigned to package variables. Here is what I have set in the General Setting tab: alt text

The SQL statement is

Left(Convert(Varchar,(DateAdd(mm,-1,GetDate())),112),6) + '16' as ?,
Left(Convert(Varchar,GetDate(),112),6) + '15' as ?

The User::BegDate and Use::EndDate are defined as strings. Here is the parameters tab: alt text

I receive the error "Incorrect syntax near '@P1'.". Possible failure reasons: Problems with the query, "ResultSet" property not set correctly, parameters not set correctly, or connection not established correctly."

When I execute the statement like this in SQL Query window it returns the values I expect

Left(Convert(Varchar,(DateAdd(mm,-1,GetDate())),112),6) + '16' as BegDate,
Left(Convert(Varchar,GetDate(),112),6) + '15' as EndDate

I find lots of help regarding input variables, but not output variables. Can you help?

Thanks! paws27284

New code box

There's a new way to format code on the site - the red speech bubble logo will automatically format T-SQL for you. The original code box is still there for XML, etc. More details here.
