Hi All,

I have created a ssis project and deployed it to the server. And after the deployment has been done, some of the datatypes of the table columns are to be changed. If i change the datatypes there could be some metadata mismatch in the package. So how can i fix this without going into the package.

Thanks in advance....

you cant. ssis cant change metadata at runtime. So you need to redesign package using new datatypes. Between are new datatypes compatible with earlier ones or entirely different?
