Task Factory – Replace Unwanted Characters

One of the most common tasks for SSIS developers is to replace characters or words in a column with a new set of characters, or a new word. Sure, you can use a derived column transform, then fiddle around with substrings, but geez what a pain that is. Fortunately Task Factory, a suite of SSIS components from Pragmatic Works, has a great tool to make this quick and easy: The Replace Unwanted Characters transformation. This video demonstrates how easy it is to use.
