Hi All,

I developed and deployed SSIS package on a server for copying selected data from one table to another table. In the source table, I changed the length of a field according to the need and made the same change in destination table too.

Source Table
FieldOne VARCHAR (10) to VARCHAR (50)

Destination Table
FieldOne VARCHAR (10) to VARCHAR (50)

When the SSIS package executed it throw an error...
I didn't found alternate for updating metadata in the SSIS package. So I redeploy the package.
Is there a way a refresh/update metadata with redeployment?

Help in this regard would be highly appreciated!

What your suggesting isn't possible. If you change the data souce / destination you need to open the project and update the components. Mainly because SSIS is very strick on metadata. When it runs it validates the data sources, tables, fields, data types, lengths, etc...
All that is stored in the package dtsx file and if it doesn't match it won't run. This is why there is no way to specify dynamic data source / destination. This is also why the data flows are so fast.
