Follow steps 1 to 3 on my first article to open the BIDS project and select the right project to work on integration services project.

We have configured the OLEDB Source to fetch the data which we are going to make a copy. Now lets configure the Copy Column as shown in the below screen


Clicking on OK will do the configuration of the copy column control. Now go to the OLEDB Destination control and configure to the correct Column as shown in the below screen


Once we are done with the configuration Press F5 to build and execute the package. Once the package gets executed successfully your screen looks like below



So in this article we have seen on how to use the Copy Column to transform a copy of column to the destination for particular columns in a table.
