Trying to import oracle data via sql server ssis

I'm trying to set up an ssis package to collect some data from some oracle tables. A few of the columns in the resulting query show up as System.Byte (with a trailing square). The data type on the oracle side is RAW (16) and shows as a 16 byte hex number when I view the data through toad (i'm a newbie with oracle).

The SSIS connection manager shows the provider as Native OLE DB\Microsoft OLE DB Provider for Oracle, but, I've also tried Native OLE DB\Oracle Provider for OLE DB. Both get the same result.

Any thoughts on how I can get the data to show up as 16 byte hex?

thanks
alan

ORACLE RAW(16) translates to UNIQUEIDENTIFIER in SQL without the acolades. You could transfer it  as varchar in SQL then varchar to GUID or UNIQUEIDENTIFIER in the SSIS via the linked server to ORACLE database.
