You can also view the table properties in this tree and the metadata of the tables and columns in the Properties box. To ease query creation, you can drag a table from the Tables tree to the Edit Query box, and the query to the corresponding table will be built automatically. You can also drag a table to already created query in Edit Query, and the name of this table will be added to the query text.
Devart DB2 Source editor displays SQL Server Integration Services (SSIS) system variables, saving your time, since you don't need to search their names in the documentation any more. They can also be dragged to the query editor to insert their names to the query.
Devart DB2 Source editor allows you to quickly preview the data, returned by the specified query to make sure that you have entered it correctly.

Per-row Error Processing
Devart DB2 Destination component provides advanced error processing capabilities. It can return a set of columns, containing error code, error columns, and error description for the rows, that caused an error. Thus errors can be processed for each row that caused an error.
