I am building an SSIS package that will loop thru several Excel files, extract the data from the Excel worksheet, and put it in an Access table. The problem is, one of the columns has two different datatypes stored in it. The cells that are a number translate to NULL in the excel source component. Does anyone have any suggestions on how to get all the data into the pipeline?
Any help would really be appreciated!
