Hi,

I have an nvarchar(max) column in a table in a SQL Server 2008 database that contains html formatted message text. For a report, I have been asked to strip out all html tags so that only the plain text messages are put into the report.

Is there a community custom SSIS task out there that will do the job that anyone knows of? If not, can anyone advise on the best approach to this problem?

Thanks in advance.
