Hello i have a excel doc with the following data in in a column 31-JAN-13 15.04.51.590000000

how do i convert this in SSIS into a datetime column?

I got this error message
The conversion returned status value 2 and status text "The value could not be converted because of a potential loss of data.". "

A solution I have used in the past is adding in two Derived columns one right after the other. In the first pick apart your date in to a Year derived column and subsequently a Month and Day also using the date/time functions. Then in the next Derived Column reassemble the parts you need. This will probably work with the time also but with what I saw in your post it may be a little more difficult.

I have done similar with the derived columns. That is what I would recommend.
