I have an Excel file that I am using as my source to create a CGL file in SSIS. I need to skip the first 5 rows every time and only want data from the following columns. F6,F7,F5,F64,F10,F86,F11,F61,F63,F167,F125,F87,F2 is there an easy way to accomplish this task in SSIS?

you can use the OpenRowset() property on the Excel Datasource. Something like Sheet1$A6:Z5000, check this link for more details:

Easiest would be to give each row a number (a bit like an identity in SQL Server) and then use a conditional split to filter out everything where the number <=5

Well, I'm not sure why the suggestion I given in the link on my first comment didn't work, but alternatively you can try this link:
