I want to use SSIS Import/Export Wizard to append data to an already existing table. I tried the suggestions in my original question, however, When I am at the Destination selection screen it does not give me a chance to choose a table, only a database. It automatically gives the table the same name as the source. On the Edit Mappings there is an option to append, but it is greyed out. What do I need to do to make this work?

You first have to select the database you are importing data to first, then select the destinationation tables as shown here.

If Append Data is grayed out, it means the field types in your tables do not march

First, Make sure that the login under which you are trying have Permissions to connect to that database and have SELECT/ INSERT privileges on the tables involved to get it work..

OK, I will check on the permissiuns. I created that database, if that matters. It let me create the table with the wizard as a new table, copying data to it. Automatically named it the same as the Source.

I tried a different database, where I have used insert (in SQL) but it does the same thing. Would this be because my source is Excel?

Have you applied SP4 for SQL Server 2005. If not, then apply it and try after that once..
