Column <name> cannot be converted between unicode and non-unicode string datatypes

    Question

  • Need to run a db export from SQL Server 2012 to Access (can be 2003 onwards). on the export when creating the Access tables in the blank mdb file (or accdb) it creates any varchar corresponding column to a Short Text datatype in Access which gets actually converted to nvarchar. so the export fails with "Column <name> cannot be converted between unicode and non-unicode string datatypes". I tested this in SSDT 2013 as well, I know that I can add a data conversion //or derived column (and create the SSIS package) but can it not be some something more like out of the box? I run into this issue when run the export from SSMS (Management studio)

    Thank you
