  • Hi there,

    You can use SSIS Sort Transformation component to remove duplicates.

    As for removing special characters, I suggest using T-SQL functions alike REPLACE or combination of CHARINDEX and SUBSTRING. This helps you get better performance as it puts the processing burden on DB Engine before engaging SSIS.
