write excel invalid data to sql server table in ssis

Last Modified: 2020-03-09
I have ssis package that reads in excel file

I know there are some rows in the excel file that have non date values in cells that should have date values

I tried redirecting rows to an error table that has columns that are defined as varchar(255)

However package keeps failing saying conversion error

I know there is a conversion error just want the records to write to a table

not sure what I am missing
