SSIS Creating Destination Table Dynamically From Source Table

Hello Experts,
When creating a Dataflow task within SSIS, the source is created and then a OLE DB Destination is added, there's an option to Create a table dynamically when you press the NEW button inside the OLE DB Destination Editor.

I'd like to build an SSIS package Programatically and I would like to create the destination table dynamically, just as if I press the New button within the code.  Would anyone know how to do this?

Your insight is appreciated.

Thank you.

you need to generate the CREATE TABLE command dynamically with an expression and run it in an Execute SQL Task right before the data flow task.
or you can use SELECT ... INTO ... command in an execute sql task instead of data flow task to create the destination table structure based on selected structure.

Reza_Rad,
Thank you for the comment, however, want I'm looking for is the code behind the "New" button.  Since the source is already created, how do I go about generating the CREATE TABLE command with the associated columns and column_types from the source?

the NEW button will fetch metadata information from INPUT COLUMNS and generate the Create table command based on it.
So if you want to do that you should write a script component to loops through input columns and generated sql script for create table and run it. and finally map whole columns together.
But note that you need to do all of those in SCRIPT and this will be hard.
your other ways are what I mentioned earlier, which are much easier and better because SSIS data flow is not designed for dynamic metadata.
If you need more help let me know where exactly in detail you need more information.
