I want to import data in xls file into a table in my SSIS package. I created a ssis ConnectionManagerType = Excel (WC_Crosswalk) and gave a dynamic connection string to connect to the xls file. The connection string is copied below:
"Provider=Microsoft.Jet.OLEDB.4.0;Data Source="+ @[User::CrosswalkPath] +";Extended Properties=\"EXCEL 8.0;HDR=YES\";"

if the value of the CrosswalkPath = "S:\\Offload\\WC\\From Client\\Images\\WCNYE1.xls"
as copied from the watch window
I understand that the connection string would be:
Provider=Microsoft.Jet.OLEDB.4.0;Data Source=S:\Offload\\WC\From Client\Images\WCNYE1.xls;Extended Properties="EXCEL 8.0;HDR=YES";

When I run this package, my data flow task fails with the following error message:
[WellcareExcelsheet [89]] Error: SSIS Error Code DTS_E_CANNOTACQUIRECONNECTIONFROMCONNECTIONMANAGER.  The AcquireConnection method call to the connection manager "WC_Crosswalk" failed with error code 0xC00F9304.  "


Where did I go wrong?

I've never had to set the connection string explicitly: try setting the Excel file name in the expression list  as @[User::CrosswalkPath] - the connection string usually takes care of itself after that.

I also tried setting the expression property "ExcelFilePath" to [User::CrosswalkPath] . I still get the same error.

I changed the Run64BitRuntime value to False. Now it works.
