Sql Server Export errors

Experts - I am getting this error when attempting to export data from Sql Server 2012 Express:

Error 0xc020802e: Data Flow Task 1: The data type for "Destination - Export test_csv.Inputs[Flat File Destination Input].Columns[Title]" is DT_NTEXT, which is not supported with ANSI files. Use DT_TEXT instead and convert the data to DT_NTEXT using the data conversion component.
 (SQL Server Import and Export Wizard)


What is the correct method (and in what application - sql server or the import/export wizard) to implement the solution in the error message:

Use DT_TEXT instead and convert the data to DT_NTEXT using the data conversion component.

I have several columns that are nvarchar(4000) in my SQL Server table which I suspect are causing the error. The Export Wizard identifies these columns are Unicode string [DT_WSTR] data type.

3 other columns are numeric and it identifies them as either eight-buyte integer [DT_I8] or double-precision float [DT-R8).

Thanks in advance.

Assuming you are using the Export wizard you could do this:
Create a View and cast all Nvarchar columns to varchar, then export the view to the csv file.  If you are actually using unicode in the data you are going to lose it.

If you are creating a solution in the Business Intelligence Designer you can create a Data conversion item inside your data flow task.
