Can not get excel connection when calling an SSIS package from ASP

Posted By:      Posted Date: August 29, 2010    Points: 0   Category :Sql Server
I have an SSIS package importing data from excel. I have coded it and deployed it on the sql 2008 server. I then execute it via a stored procedure with the following: select @cmd = 'C:\"Program Files (x86)\Microsoft SQL Server\100\DTS\Binn\DTExec.exe" /sq "HRIS"' select   @cmd = @cmd + ' /SET \Package.Variables[User::path].Properties[Value];"' + @path + '"' exec   @rtn = master..xp_cmdshell @cmd   This works fine when  i execute it on my local machine. But when I try to call this Stored proc from my asp app (classic asp, not .net) I get the error: Code: 0xC0202009 Source: HRIS Connection manager "SourceConnectionExcel" Description: SSIS Error Code DTS_E_OLEDBERROR. An OLE DB error has occurred. Error code: 0x80004005. An OLE DB record is available. Source: "Microsoft JET Database Engine" Hresult: 0x80004005 Description: "Unspecified error". End Error   Any help would be greatly apprecitated

SSIS 2008 - Excel Source using SQL Connection cancels as soon as package runs.

Let me preface this by saying I'm brand-new to SSIS development. I'm using 64-bit SSIS 2008 and I'm trying to read an Excel spreadsheet using OLE DB. I've already run into and corrected the Run64BitRuntime problem.  Now when I invoke the Package it cancels immediately with the following output: SSIS package "Lesson1X.dtsx" starting. Information: 0x4004300A at Data Flow Task, SSIS.Pipeline: Validation phase is beginning. SSIS package "Lesson1X.dtsx" finished: Canceled. The program '[5400] Lesson1X.dtsx: DTS' has exited with code 0 (0x0). When I edit the Excel Source component itself there are no errors and I am able to Preview the results successfully.  If I use Table or View to access the file, the package runs successfully. Any suggestions will be greatly appreciated. Thanks

Loading Decimal Number From Excel into SQL Server 2005 using SSIS Package

If you have an excel spreadsheet that displays a number .02 (because it is formated) but internally it is stored as .2654329 and you want to load .2654329 how can you do that in the SSIS package?  When we load the spreadsheet it is loading .02.  Is there some kind of option in the SSIS package to tell the package to load the internal number?lcerni

if ssis package writes to excel file that might be open by a user

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'

Implementing Transaction in SSIS Package - [Execute SQL Task] Error: Failed to acquire connection "<

I have a simple SSIS package with three "Execute SQL Tasks". I am using ADO.Net Connection to execute SPs on a DB server. When I execute this package It works fine. So far so good. Now, I need to implement transation on this package. And problem starts now onwards. When I try to execute package after setting TransationOption = Required for the Sequence container which contains all the tasks, I get following error. [Execute SQL Task] Error: Failed to acquire connection "NYCDB0008.Export". Connection may not be configured correctly or you may not have the right permissions on this connection. "NYCDB0008.Export" is the name of the ADO.Net connection. I have been hunting for any solution but all in vain. I have tried changing all DTC settings on the dev as well as Database server. Please respond if anyone has any solution. Thanks! Anand

Create Excel file dynamically in SSIS package and fill it by resultset data returned by Stored proce


Hello Every One,

I have a scenario in which i am executing a Stored Procedure which returned a result set.

I want to create a Excel file [name_date_time] dynamically, and fill result set data into Excel file. And then finally sent Excel file to Specific user[Email ID].

Point is that the excel file should have unique name so i want to give name as name_date_time.

So every time when package run new file is created with unique name.


Can any one suggest me who to create Excel file and fill result set data into Excel file.

And then finally send that Excel file ?







Import Excel file with Data Connection into SSIS


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?

SSIS import Excel with Data Connection


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!

SSIS package which reads excel files fails on SQL Server Agent

Could you shed some light on it?



SSIS package to import excel 2007 with different column numbers



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,

SSIS Package Transaction locks entire table

Hello, I have SSIS package that using transactions and working as expected. But this locks all the tables involved in the data flow that are get inserted/loaded. If I query those tables during package execution the query waits till SSIS releases the lock. But I can still query those tables using NOLOCK hint. Is this possible SSIS will lock only the rows that it insert/update/delete etc? So that other user can still use that table or another instance of same SSIS Package can load data into those tables? My Package: In the package level I have TransactionOption = Required. The Sequence (Data Flow is inside this sequence) TransactionOption = Supported. I had some issue in my package that I posted here: http://social.msdn.microsoft.com/Forums/en-US/sqlintegrationservices/thread/dfb5a8b9-d43c-452b-bb21-d6aea192fc97 and also resolved. Now I descovered this issue and trying to resolve. Thanks, Prabhat

I will have a Package Variable and if that variable is True then some part should execute. REst all should execute every time the package is called. Like if I will have "2 Sequence Container" in my control flow, the first one should execute every time, but 2nd one only if the variable value = True. Thanks, Prabhat

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
