I have got an Excel spreadsheet with a Data Connection that I want to import into SSIS. The problem is that the Data Connection does not seem to run at the time the file is imported, so it only calls "old" data.
How can I set SSIS up to run the Data Connection first, or is there something I need to change in my Excel spreadsheet setup?
When a person opens the Excel file normally, they first need to "Enable" the Data Connection in the Security Settings. Once that is done the data will update immediately. I wonder if that is something I somehow need to change to make it work in SSIS?
Hi guys, I am trying to use SSIS for the first time. What I am hoping to do is set up a scheduled job that will get SSIS to read an Excel spreadsheet on a regular basis and import the data out of it into an SQL Server database. Now my Excel spreadsheet uses
a Data Connection to a different source and I want the data to be refreshed before SSIS imports it. Is that possible?
The problem I am facing right now is that the Data Connection does not seem to run before SSIS import the data. It keeps importing the old data that was sitting in the Excel spread sheet at the time it was saved last.
Is there any way I can tell SSIS to run the data connection first? Or is there something I need to do in my Excel file to ensure the connection is run?
By the way: the Excel file is set up to run the Data Connection immediately when it is opened normally in Excel, but the general user always first has to go into the Security Settings and enable Data Connections.
Thanks for the help!
I have an already developed SSIS 2005 package which can import maximum of 50 columns of *.xlsx file. The file format is same except with the column numbers. I have many components in SSIS package (e.g. unpivot data, derrived column etc) which are developed
for 50 columns. The package works fine for importing 50 columns. But sometimes it fails for excel sheet having 12 columns (columns < 50) it gives error for the source columns cannot be found. Surprisingly, if the contents are copied to another file it may
work but not surely. Please let me know if I can do anything in existing package.
Thanks in advance,

When I import data using Import and Export Wizard in Visual Studio 2008 for SQL Server 2000 DB from an Excel file, it only imports few rows and not all. It happens when I am appending to an existing table. The rows that are imported have correct data as
I want it to be.
It imports fine when I import to a new table, which is created while importing. Is there any way I can make the Import and Export wizard to Append all the rows from an Excel file? Is it a bug in SQL Server? I am not sure. I am using a .xls file.
