HI Expert, I am trying to create a SSIS package to go through a folder and export all the .xls files into SQL. The problem I'm having is that I'm not to sure which property of the Excel Connection Manager must be changed and how exactly it is done. I know it would be something to do with variables and then in the Excel Connection Manager expressions you change a property during Execution time

you have to use a foreachfile enumerator, with the filename being your variable to pass to the Excel Connection Manager. Then it loops importing each file into sql server
