Trouble seeing source fields

SQL Server Development expert Greg Low offers a suggestion about invisible source fields.

I have created two connections then (in 2003) and then in the Transform Data Task Properties, entered a big query, went to the Transformations tab and had all of my correct destination fields but no source fields?

The last step of the query selects columns from a global temporary table, calls a user-defined function for formatting on some column data,and renames them (uses the AS clause).

Why can't I see my source fields? Do I have to create another temporary file with my selected data then reference the new table from Transform Data Task properties?

Do you have an alternative.

I have not seen this happen. Have you selected the source connection in the drop-down list in the properties of the transform data task?
