SSIS Package with ODBC Source and OLE DB Source

I'm trying to do what I think is simple...
Creating a package to pull old FoxPro data and put it into a SQL table.  The insert however should only pull in "new" records. The FoxPro table has a unique key (testid).  So I thought I would have the ODBC Source and create a second source (OLE DB) which was just a query to grab the max() testid from the SQL table.  But I'm having trouble trying to figure out how to get these two seperate sources to talk to put into a single destination.  I though 'union all' would work but no matter what I do I cannot get the types (yes I created a 0 as maxtestid in the ODBC query from FoxPro) to be compatible.

Any ideas?

Use an OUTER JOIN on the two sources and only pass through records where the SQLTable.uniquekey IS NULL.

BriCrowe...I tried but couldn't get it to work.

What I did to get it to work...I used a T-SQL Statment task and put max value into a user variable (thus deleting the OLEDB source).  Then used the conditional split on the ODBC source (inside data flow task) to filter out my results that I then sent to the OLEDB destination.
