Cannot fetch a row from OLE DB provider "BULK" for linked server

Today I come across the error "Cannot fetch a row from OLE DB provider BULK for linked server" in one of my SSIS packages. So I research this error and I find that this seems to be a catch-all error for SQL Server Destination. Therefore it's not very useful as you don't know exactly what causes it. The fix for me is changing the MaxInsertCommitSize from 0 to 99. You can find this property in the Advanced Editor for SQL Server Destination on the Component Properties tab.

Update 2-21-2011: I found another set of condition that may be causing this error. I used a SQL Server Destination but the connection manager was OLEDB. Once I changed the destination to be OLE DB Destination the error went away. The odd thing is this combo worked until I added a Lookup to my Data Flow. [insert rolling eyes here]
