I have a variable which holds the path for an excel file.

I have set the value to work on my local machine.

When I deploy the package the hard coded value is no longer valid. I reset the value using a SQL Package Configuration table.

Is this the correct thing to, or should I map to a valid file path when deploying the package to the server?

It is always good to have configurable. Whatever you are following is correct, though there are different configuration ways in SSIS. Such as .dtsxconfig file, sql pkg configuration.
