(i) Check the SQL Server connection in the DTS package the job is running...it may be pointing to the old IP address instead of servername

We didn't make any changes to the DTS.  DTS is running with Service account and it should be able to generate xls report which didn't happen.  This all started after we did fail over on cluster server.  
yeah..make sure you give the new ip address or hostname in the DTs package.....its definitely a communication issue

Thanks All.  Actually macros security on xls had some issues which are resolved now.  Thanks for ur help.
I'm not sure why you assigned points to the other poster - it was totally incorrect and misleading.

McAfee can prevent objects from being created such as CDO.message. We had the same problem and corrected it by configuring McAfee.
