This SSIS article shows how to copy or transfer SQL Server tables from one instance to another using a data flow task with an example.
To demonstrate this, we transfer two tables (Union All and Unpivot) from Task Result Database to TrasferTasks.
The below screenshot shows the Object Explorer.

Double-click on the first Destination to open the Editor. Then, we have chosen the existing connection.

Go to the Mappings tab to check the input and available destination column mapping.
Do. the same procedure was for the second OLE DB destination.
