DTS - Trouble converting Oracle Date columns to SQL Server DateTIme

I'm trying to copy data from an Oracle source table  (using the MS OLE DB for Oracle option) to a MS SQL Server 7  table. It works fine except for the two Date columns (by default
converted to DateTIme in SQL Server).
The only odd thing I notice, is that when I preview the Oracle source, some of the years look too old (1844 for example),but even those should convert to DateTime....
How do I approach this?

The minimum year supported by SQL Server is 1752, if your data has year older then this , then there is a problem. in that case you can use a char column to store the data

Thanks. That was my first thought too,  to change the destination to char. It didn't
work at that time, but it works now for some reason!

Great answer, and I appreciate your quick response!
