I copied existing DTS package , DB from production server to local machine to add some columns in the table .  I change the columns and i imported data into .csv file. I gave newly created file as destination. Then i change the database connection in the existing package and also change the destination path too. And when i open the transfermation task , it shows source columns but it is not showing any destination column.So i can't map. If i click define column button , my sql server is closed automatically.

Please let me know how to fix this issue.

In SQL 2000 DTS, the destination columns should be the 2nd of 5 tabs of the transformation task.

If you have changed either the source or destination column names (even the case) of any of the mapped columns, you will have to start all over again mapping the columns.

Sorry for the bad news, but it is a lesson you learn early.
