    Maybe you are assigning a different coloumn to it??

    Open Enterprise Manager >> Expand The Data Transformation Services >> Click on Local Packages >> Double Click on your DTS

    Now you will see a Gray line going between your Table and excel Double click on that and click on the transformation Tab and make sure everything is going where is supposed to
