In SSIS, an example of how to identify and correct would be:

CODEPOINT(ColumnName) < MinCodePageValue || CODEPOINT(ColumnName) >MaxCodePageValue ? (DT_WSTR,26)NULL(DT_WSTR,26): (DT_WSTR,26)ColumnName



a T-SQL equivalent would be:

SELECT CASE
WHEN ASCII(ColumnName) < MinCodePageValue OR ASCII(ColumnName) > MaxCodePageValue THEN NULL
ELSE ColumnName
END AS ColumnName
.
.
.


Rather than use NULL here, mightn't it be better to find out what replacement character the mainframe app would have used if required to display this data and use that character?

very good question and discussion. Lots for me to learn from it.
