Test connection failed because of an error in initializing provider. Invalid UDL file.

Hi experts, When I try to open an xlsx file from the OLEDB manager it gives me this error"Test connection failed because of an error in initializing provider. Invalid UDL file.", I sued the same file before for few packages but I didnot have it before, I am not sure why I would have it all of a sudden.
Please help!

Hi Murli,
Thanks for the links, though I do it according to the link it does not work if the order is not maintained, the trick here is first give the path and next in excel 12.0 should be typed in extended properties, vice versa will not work.
