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.
