I have a SSIS package that I have a field that is a Decimal now but it needs to be converted to a binary string for example.  One of the values is 152  and that should actual after it is converted look like 10011000.  I have had it figured out in an access database by using my own module,  But now we have ported over to SQL and i need  this to be done in SSIS.  Please help.
