Hello,

I am importing the following data into a table.

Country Acno ContCode SalesValue SalesDate
FRA S000 6030 151.64 2013-06-10
NLD S001 NULL 1315.53 2013-06-10
FRA S003 6027 29.39 2013-06-10


If i run the package manually in Visual Studio the fields/rows with Null import ok. However if i set a job to run from SQL Server Agent it doesnt import the Null row.

In the flat file source editor I have selected Retain Null values from the source as null values in the data flow.

In the OLE DB Destination Editor I have selected 'Keep Nulls'.

Anyone have any ideas?

Thanks.

How does the NULL appear in the flat file? Presumably one of

,"",
,,
,NULL,
