Failed to acquire connection "Excel Connection Manager".

I have just built a package which includes an excel connection manager.

It all works fine on my machine but when I deploy to the server I get an error reading

'Failed to acquire connection "Excel Connection Manager". Connection may not be configured correctly or you may not have the right permissions on this connection.'

I have read that the excel connection manager does not work with the 64bit processor.

I have the package link to an SQL Job.

How can I fix this problem.

Thanks....

I tried running the job as a 32 bit option as it was the easiest solution.

It did not work so I ran the job as an Operating System.

This worked.

Thanks.
