I have a CSV file with numeric values that use a dot "." as decimal separator instead of the comma "," we use locally. When I try to import it in SSIS with a Flat File Source it gives me an error. I don't want to/can't change the regional settings on the server. How do I import this flat file without errors?
|The value could not be converted because of a potential loss of data|
10.5 should be 10,5 (or vice versa)

You can change the LocaleID of the connection manager to import this file. Right click the connection managers and choose Properties...
|Go to properties of flat file connection manager|
Then locate the LocaleID property and change it to English (United States), English (United Kingdom) or an other country that uses a dot "." as decimal separator. Or change it to for example Dutch (Netherlands) if you have the opposite problem.
Now run the package again to see the result.
