Copying large numbers of Oracle tables in SSIS

Last Modified: 2013-11-10
I need advice on copying a large number of tables from an Oracle DB into a MS SQL 2005 DB using SSIS.  

I noticed that SSIS seems to have a control flow Transfer SQL Object Task which allows copying any number of SQL tables in one shot including both schema (table design) and data.  

There doesn't seem to be an analogous task for copying from Oracle to SQL though.  It seems that I must define a separate SSIS data flow task for each table I want to copy.  Also, there doesn't seem to be an easy way to nuke the target tables and recopy the table design all in one shot.
