creating a SSIS package that runs a comma delimited file. Issue with field spliting due to space.

Last Modified: 2012-05-12
I am tryng to create an automated process for a user. I have created a sql script and I have used the SSIS tool to create a package which runs and appends the data in the selected .csv file.
My isssue is that when the address or name has 3 spaces in a row in seperates the information and it is not in line anymore. Please see my code below.. there might just be something easy that I can do to keep these fields together somehow.

Your help is greatly appeciated
