When I run a particular SSIS procedure I get the following message...
External column NextCertificationDate needs to be removed from the external columns. VS_NeedsNewMetaData. Can someone tell me how to go about getting to the external columns. The problem is obvious via the error message. But I am not sure how to get to the External columns that are mentioned. I am clueless about the reference to VS_NeedsNewMetaData. How do I refernce this?

Thanks in advance

In whatever data flow this is errorring in, delete the precedence constraints (aka green-blue-red arrows) that go from source to destination, and then map them.  

The likely problem is that either the source or the target was edited to remove this column, and it's still being mapped.  

SSIS is notorious for any minor change in a data flow requiring the entire flow to be remapped.
