I am using SSIS script task to verify the structure of .csv files that are retrieved from an ftp site. My current implementation was developed on a 32 bit machine. It works fine when using Microsoft Text Driver. When running in our qa environment where the OS is Windows 2008 64 bit, I am receiving the following error: ERROR [IM002] [Microsoft][ODBC Driver Manager] Data source name not found and no default driver specified. Is there a workaround for this.

Regards,

-K

I don't believe there is a driver for 64bit. You need to execute the package using dtexec to call the package using 32bit. In sql server agent set the type to 'Operating system (CmdExec)' and then set it something like this...

Here is an example

"C:\Program Files (x86)\Microsoft SQL Server\90\DTS\Binn\DTExec.exe" /FILE "C:\TEST\Packages\TEST.dtsx" /MAXCONCURRENT " -1 " /CHECKPOINTING OFF
