I am trying to create a SSIS package to copy one table in SQL Server 2005 to another table in SQL Server 2005. Both table have the same column definition (a varchar(50)). I am getting the "cannot convert" error. Beside sticking a Data Conversion task between the source and target, is there anything else I can do to get the package to work. I do not want to redefine any of the table columns to nvarchar. I also want to do the same from Oracle (a varchar2(50)) to SQL Server 2005 (a varchar(50)). Is inserting a data conversion task the only way to make this work as well. Thanks in advance for any and all comments/assistance. Jethro.
