Troubleshooting: QuickBooks data return as NULL(NVARCHAR ONLY) with SSIS

Problem Description

     We are using the QODBC driver for connecting QuickBooks with SSIS. I can able to connect with QuickBooks through SSIS. But Quick books Ex: LIST ID) nvarchar data comes to the destination as NULL. (It's treated as NULL). We have checked in QODBC Support Wizard. It is working fine. It is just not bringing Unicode character (NVARCHAR) type column when using SSIS as below:

     Is there any way you can request the data as VarChars and convert it on your end? I think QODBC is returning NVarChars the same as it does for VarChars. (Simple C Strings).

I am having the exact same issue. Is there any additional solutions on this issue?

I am having the same problem. I tried the solution of converting unicode (nvarchar) to string (varchar), but I still get NULLs. Any other solution?

I just found an article that recommended doing a convert inside of the quickbooks query. For example: select {fn CONVERT(ListID, SQL_VARCHAR)} as NewID from Employee. This worked and now I see the words instead of NULL.

I would suggest to grab data , convert it to nvarchar using some variables and then push to your output.
