sql server 2008 r2

I'm trying to import a text file into a table and during the destination tab.
The destination field types are wrong. as shown in the pic below.

I have double checked the table in sql server and the fields in question are (nvarchar)
but they keep showing up as  date/time field types ? or some other field type..??

any help ?

Thanks

Look at the data that you are importing.  Is it possible that the source data looks like a Time datatype?  Try taking a couple of rows from the source data and putting quotes around the columns in question.

I suspect you are not looking at the right table or you have not selected the right table in your drop down box in the Transformation task.

ac, It is the right table. double checked.

I belive it is somewhere in the text file itself and will double check on that and get back

It can't be.  You are showing the Destination table.  This has nothing to do with the text file.

In an effort to satisfy any thoughts that you may be looking at the wrong table,could you please script the table (I am guesing that it would be CRS_CPIR_MASTER based upon your connection name) using Management Studio and as a CREATE?

The text file is pipe delimited...I found Pipes in the text file itself. So sql server thinks its creating a  new column and bombs out

I actually created a new table and then scripted from there.
