Hi,

  We are migrating data from DB2 UDB 9.7 to MS Sql Server 2008, using SSIS 2008.
  Since DB2 is Unicode by default, we had to add a Data Conversion transformation between the DB2 source and the Sql Server target.

 Now, we are getting an error message from one of the columns and the error was in the lines of
Data Conversion Error: Data conversion failed while 
converting column xxx to column "Copy of xxx. 
The conversion returned status value 4 and status text "
Text was truncated or one or more characters
 had no match in the target code page.". 

So, we want to be able to ignore this error and move ahead with the load. But instead of ignoring that one error, it has not loaded anything into the column that was causing this issue. So, when we looked at the target table, there were all NULLs in this column.

Can someone kindly suggest a way to ignore the errors and load the rest of the data in the column, as is?
