Please how do I get expired_flag to show either 0 for current or 1 for expired rows? I am migrating data from a table that has Position_Start_Date and Position_End_Date which I mapped to my new fields called Effective_Date and Expired_Date respectively in the destination table. I also do have a field on my destination table called Expired_Flag. I am having a hard time getting this field to either show 0 if the record is expired or 1 if not. How do I make use of the fields position_start_date and position_end_date to cause the expired_flag to respond accordingly?

Thanks for helping!

you can load the Expired_flag field using SQL or Derived column in SSIS.. i am not sure if i understand your criteria correctly to determine if its a 0 or 1. It would be good if you can explain the formula here..

Are you planning on an incremental load or is it one time load or Daily load ??

It's a one time load.

And I'm also trying to use derived column in SSIS to get the value. I want the field to show a value of 1 if the position_end_date is a date in the past (expired) or 0 if it's a date in the future or current date (current)

Ok..That should be simple to do.. All you have to do is compare the date in that Column with getDate() function

you can use the below exp:

position_end_date <= GetDate() ? 1 : 0

Make sure that the Data Types Match..let me know if you need more help
