How to make work around for SSIS "Excel Connection Manager is not supported" error msg in SQL Server 2008

I'm using SSIS in a 64 bit environment (Visual Studio 2008/SQL Server 2008) and the package failed at the Excel Source control saying  "The Excel Connection Manager is not supported in the 64-bit version of SSIS, as no OLE DB provider is available."
Is there a work around or could I use an OLE DB Source instead of Excel Source for this package?


SSIS package "Section1.dtsx" starting.
Information: 0x4004300A at Data Flow Task, SSIS.Pipeline: Validation phase is beginning.
Error: 0xC00F9304 at Section1, Connection manager "Excel Connection Manager":
SSIS Error Code DTS_E_OLEDB_EXCEL_NOT_SUPPORTED: The Excel Connection Manager is not supported in the 64-bit version of SSIS, as no OLE DB provider is available.
Error: 0xC020801C at Data Flow Task, Excel Source [152]: SSIS Error Code DTS_E_CANNOTACQUIRECONNECTIONFROMCONNECTIONMANAGER.  The AcquireConnection method call to the connection manager
"Excel Connection Manager" failed with error code 0xC00F9304.  There may be error messages posted before this with more information on why the AcquireConnection method call failed.

You may be able to use the ACE driver. I know this works on 64bit SQL Server using a linked server to all versions of Excel. So it should work with SSIS too.

You could try to executing it as 32bit package..

"In the Project Properties of an Integration Services package, you can select 32-bit or 64-bit execution by setting the value of the Run64BitRuntime property on the Debugging page."

=> In "BI Development Studio" (Visual Studio) Right-click on the project -> Properties -> "Debugging"
