If the value being assigned to the buffer column is not a string or the buffer column DataType is not a DT_STR, DT_WSTR, DT_TEXT, or DT_NTEXT, an UnsupportedBufferDataTypeException occurs.

If the value of the column is null, the PipelineBuffer produces a ColumnIsNullException. You can check for null by calling the IsNull method.
