The SSIS error code DTS_E_PRIMEOUTPUTFAILED is typically caused by incorrect data type conversion. Data type conversion issues can occur when the data type of the data being read from the data source does not match the data type of the data being written to the data destination. Data type conversion issues can also occur when the data type of the data being read from the data source does not match the data type of the data being written to the data transformation.

1. Check the data source connection to ensure it is valid and the path is correct

To check the data source connection, in SSIS Designer, open the data source connection and verify that the connection string is correct. If the connection string is incorrect, you can fix the connection string by editing the data source connection in SSIS Designer. If the path is incorrect, you can fix the path by editing the data source connection in SSIS Designer.

2. Check the data source to ensure that all required columns are mapped

The steps to check the data source to ensure that all required columns are mapped in order to fix SIS error code DTS_E_PRIMEOUTPUTFAILED are as follows:

  1. Verify that the correct data source is being used.
  2. Verify that the data source is mapped in the correct order.
  3. Verify that the data source columns are of the correct type.
  4. Verify that the data source column names are correct.
  5. Check the data source column data.

3. Check the data flow path to ensure that it is valid and that all columns are mapped

To check the data flow path to ensure that it is valid and that all columns are mapped in order to fix ssis error code dts_e_primeoutputfailed:

  1. Verify that all source tables have the correct data types.
  2. Verify that all columns in the source tables are mapped in the correct order.
  3. Verify that all foreign key constraints are satisfied.
  4. Check the data flow path for any errors.

If the answers above didn't work then you should also try:

  1. Run the SSIS package in Debug mode to identify the specific component that is causing the error
  2. Enable logging for the SSIS package to identify the specific error message
  3. Modify the SSIS package to add error handling for the specific component that is causing the error
  4. Contact the vendor of the data source or data flow component that is causing the error for assistance
