SQL 2005 Integration services

hi all

just trying out integration services for the first time -(looks great), but can i read an excel 2007 file into sql rather than just 2003 and previous versions?

our sql 2005 instance  does not have sp2/3 installed

cheers

"HDR=Yes;" indicates that the first row contains columnnames, not data. "HDR=No;" indicates the opposite.
