SSIS reports invalid character for cast specification

I am getting this error message after the package runs for a few minutes.
0x80004005  Description: "Invalid character value for cast specification.".

The script in my package has many lines like this:
      ,cast(RTRIM(LTRIM(d.ACTNUMST)) as nvarchar(35)) as AccountString

All the conversions are trying to strip away blanks. They are all nvarchar and there no conversions to float or int. I have tried looking for blanks in my database and there are plenty of them but that should not cause this error. How can I track down exactly which row is causing this error so I can root out the bad data?

Not sure about your situation, but you can configure the error lines to a table or csv file to for tracking down the issue. Assume that you're using Derived Column component in Data Flow.

Open Derived Column Transformation Editor --> Click on  Configure Error Output. At Error column, select Redirect Row for ACTNUMST.

Hi,

If you are getting this error while loading data to the destination in Data flow Task.

Then you can set the destination property to redirect rows to error output rather then failing the package.
And at the error output of the destination in Data Flow you can connect sql table with all nvarchar or to a text file.
At the error row output you will also have error code with that you can come to know that the error is which these limited rows.
