In an SSIS package, I am attempting to copy data from a source where I am using the .NET provider for ODBC. The destination is a SQL Server 2005 table, and the connection uses the OLE DB provider for SQL Server.

On occasion, the data in a column called ADDR1 can contain a character at the end of the string that comes across in appearance as a box. When this occurs, the record makes its way to the error output. I've tried using RTRIM and TRIM, and a couple of things with REPLACE in a Derived Column transform, but I can't seem to eliminate this extra character.

If I don't configure the error output, then the package fails on a truncation error on the ADDR1 column. The error output shows that the physical number of characters in the string never excedes the allowable character length (30).

Any suggestions?
