Excel Connection Manager: Use OpenRowset with Space(s) in Worksheet Name

Posted By:      Posted Date: September 30, 2010    Points: 0   Category :Sql Server
 

Is there a way to use Excel Connection Manager with OpenRowSet when the worksheet has a space in the name (e.g. "My Sheet").  I am using SQL Server 2008R2.

OpenRowset works fine without spaces in the worksheet name, but generates an error when a space is present.  I have tried multiple [] and ' ' combinations to bracket the worksheet name. 

JG4 documented the same problem in a posting titled "Skipping leading rows in Excel" (at the bottom of the thread):

Excel Connection Manager Problem

  
I am building a package that has 2 tasks that need to use the same excel connection manager. I use a execute sql task to dynamically build a table from the headers of the excel sheet  ,then I use an excel source component to load the data from the sheet. However when I try to edit the excel source and switch the data access mode to a variable and select the variable(for the path), when I try to close the editor I get this message 'S:\myfolder'.  It is already opened exclusively by another user, or you need permission to view its data. I need this package to access the same folder each time because the files will be placed in that folder. This package also has a branch for loading a text file into sql server. It access the same folder but uses a flatfile connection manager It looks like permissions on the folder are correct

SSIS Excel Connection Manager Data Type Conversion Issues with SS Agent Job

  
Hi All! I have an issue I've been trying to fix but can't seem to figure it out. I was hoping a kind person would point me in the right direction. :o) I have an SSIS package that uses an excel connection manager source, and I want to run this package through a job scheduled in the SQL server agent. The data types for the excel file fields are 2 (DT_WSTR) and 5 (DT_R8). When I run the package directly through the SSIS package (VS solution) all of the data fields are properly imported into the database table. But...when I run this package through the SQL server agent job, ONLY the string (DT_WSTR) fields in each row are being imported, all of the float fields are imported as NULL. I set the data types for these float fields as "float" in the SQL server import table (data type). Even though the excel source float fields are indicating a type of DT_R8 in the excel connection manager and I set the data types in the SQL server table to "float", I also used the data conversion component and set the type to "float" as a fail-safe. I guess I should add to that the data access mode in the excel connection manager is using a custom code to select only those columns that I needed and to trim rows that I didn't need. Here's my code that I have in the excel source editor: select f1, f2, f3, f5, f6, f7, f8 from [mdo$] where f2 <> 'Rep Name'

SQL Server Configuration Manager: Connection to target machine could not be made in a timely fashion

  
I have a SQL Server 2005 box that was moved from a domain environment to a non-domain environment and was never dropped from its original domain before moving over.  Subsequently a new domain was created at the data center this SQL Server box now resides in.  The machine was dropped from its old domain and joined to the new one.   All the while the service accounts were set to the local admin account.  When I tried to start the Configuration Manager I got the message "Connection to target machine could not be made in a timely fashion.".  I read some blog entries and tried changing all the service accounts to Local System and the error message still came up.   All of the SQL Server services run fine.  It is just this management console that I cannot open.  I wasn't with this employer when this box was moved to the data center so I do not know if it worked prior and there isn't anyone here that could give me its history.   Any help would be appreciated.

Connect to an existing connection manager from within a custom transformation?

  
I'm developing a custom data flow transformation and have hit a roadblock.  I need to create an ADO connection to one of the connection managers that's defined in the package already.  I can either hardcode the name of the connection manager, or define it as a custom property....the problem I'm having is accessing it at all.  What I've found is that ComponentMetaData.RuntimeConnectionCollection[0].ConnectionManager only has the connection managers defined by the component itself, not already existing in the package.  How do I create a connection to a connection manager that's defined at the package level at design time? Thanks

How to change connection string of a pivot table pointing to SSAS 2005 cube using excel 2003?

  
Hi All,I am not sure if I should have posted this query to Excel 2003 forum. But posting it here as it applies to SSAS 2005 as well.Ok, let me give the background before I tell the actual problem.We have users on ABC domain and the SSAS server is also on ABC domain. Users on this domain can acess the excel pivots by connecting to cube to browse the data. They leave the Userid & password field blank while they setup the connection string and it works fine. Thanks to windows authentication that takes the credentials of user logged in. Let's say I have two users A and B, they login to ABC domain with their own windows ids.  Now when user A creates a excel file having a cube pivot and then sends this file to user B, user B can refresh and modify the same excel file (he can select new measures to pivot, new hierarchies in filters and so on).Now, let's say I have another user, user C. He has excel 2003 installed on his PC and cannot migrate to excel 2007. He is on different domain XYZ but have a valid windows userid on domain ABC. The domain ABC & XYZ can not be setup to have trusted relationship. Now, when user A sends the same excel file to user C. When user C opens the file and try to refresh it or try to modify the pivot by selecting/deselecting any elements, he gets below error prompt:" An error was encountered in the transport layer." and "Errors in the

FTP connection manager

  
Hello, Does anyone know if SSIS supports SSH/SFTP connection? I have an FTP connection manager and I cannot seem to connect. I find it odd that SSIS doesn't ask for the connection. Any help would be appreciated and thank you all in advance.   DaveDave SQL Developer
