Hello Experts,

I have a VBA application that executes a SQL Server SSIS package. When it executes I get the this error (please see message box)

This is the code I'm using in my application:

Sub ExecutePackage()
    Dim oPKG As New DTS.Package
    oPKG.LoadFromSQLServer "MBC_Laptop", , , _
        DTSSQLStgFlag_UseTrustedConnection, , , , "MBC_Net"
    oPKG.Execute
    oPKG.UnInitialize
    Set oPKG = Nothing
End Sub

Please note that I can execute the package directly from the server. I can also execute it from VB.Net application using the following code:

    Sub RunSSIS()

        Dim pkgLocation As String
        Dim pkg As New Package
        Dim app As New Application
        Dim pkgResults As DTSExecResult

        pkgLocation = _
          "D:\VB Projects\My Test Procedures\Import New Media Stats\Import New Media Stats\bin\Deployment\MBC_Net.dtsx"
        pkg = app.LoadPackage(pkgLocation, Nothing)
        pkgResults = pkg.Execute()

        Console.WriteLine(pkgResults.ToString())
    End Sub

Could someone please advise me how to run SSIS from VBA application

Dear Friend,
I've posted some time ago in my blog a post abou calling ssis package from an ASP application. Maybe it help you... check www.pedrocgd.blogspot.com

just a tip : Calling a SSIS package from a asp application from a ASP siet requires SSIS installed on websserver... in your case you must have SSIS installed in machine you have the excel file...

I hop it helps you!
regards

Thanks Pedro,

You do have an interesting website, but unfortunately it does not help in my problem.

My problem is related to VBA not ASP.

On a separate note, I wanted also to go to BI Conference in Seatle, but couldn't afford. May be we meet next conference.

Cheers,
