SSIS Troubleshooting

SSIS is case-sensitive and will remember the old column name even if it no longer exists. So say you have a column “CHANGE” and map it through. Then next time you use “Change” then SSIS will try to map “CHANGE” and throw errors. Try changing the column name to something completely different and then map through.
