Dear Andy,

followed your approach and it is working well.

However, on one of the SCD II pacakges, there has been a new requriement. I have to keep all columns as historical. Meaning there will not be any overwrite/updates on any of the columns.

Now, I thought, all I need to do is to remove the second OLD DB Command for updating records, and keep everything else the same.

That is:

1. OLE DB Data Source,

2. Lookup Task, set up as ignore faliure

3. Conditional Split, with only one condition: New Rows as ISNULL(primary key)

4. OLE DB Destination

Is this the best approach still?
