Receiving error trying to load into SQL Server table - cannot convert between unicode and non-unicode string data types.  Destination table has varchar database.  Do not want to change data types in destination table, since they match other table definitions in database.  Source data is a query from Teradata.   Can I convert the data so it no longer errors out?

This solution did not help - I had indicated that I did not want to change the DDL for the table.  Found that I could run the data thru SSIS using data conversion and then it populated fine.
