SQL SERVER 2005 SSIS 'Copy Data from one or more tables or views' is greyed out. ODBC?

I'm trying to Import a database from an ISAM database using SSIS into SQL Server 2005 using the Import Export wizard.  It only allows the use of  ODBC provider for.NET (not standard ODBC) and I have entered filedsn=C:\Program Files\Common Files\ODBC\Data Sources\odbcfilename.dsn as a connection string but once I get to the Specify table copy or query screen in the wizard the option for 'Copy Data from one or more tables or views' is greyed out.

Can you please provide advice.  I think it may be a problem with the ODBC driver for .NET as the option is available when I use the OLEDB driver for SQL to the SQL Server for example.

Most functionality with ODBC drivers has been removed from the tools in SSIS. Microsoft is pushing the switch to OLEDB drivers. You can still use ODBC drivers but for the most part you have to write your own scripts to accomplish the same the things the tolls provide. Your best bet would be to see if there is an OLEDB driver for the database. Or you can export the data to text files and import the text files using SSIS.

The problem is with the Synergy ODBC driver which interrogates the ISAM database.  There is no OLEDB driver unfortunately and the software vendor who provided the system that runs on the ISAM database are not much help. We just have to live with the tables that we can access and that's that.  Very annoying.
