I’m trying to import data from CSV to SQL Server 2012 and I’m using SSIS 2012.

CSV file data:
Field1,Field2
“123”,”abc “xyz” wxy”

The data should read into the database as
Field1 Field2
abc abc “xyz” wxy

The problem is in ”abc “xyz” wxy”
if I add another set of double quotes inside the field double quotes it will work.
”abc ““xyz”” wxy”

Anyway I can fix this without writing a text parser?

According to the official blogs, you indeed need to escape the qualifier inside the column (2 times double quotes).

What happens if you don't add the extra double quotes? Do you get an error message?
