ms sql agent and ssis issue - read only / permissions issue with excel file?

I have an SSIS file system package that:

1. drops table in an excel file to remove all previous data
2. creates the table structure from above #1 again
3. populate the excel file table with SQL query data

This SSIS package works fine when run from the Execute Package Utility.

When I run the SSIS package from the MS SQL 2008 R2 server agent, the job says "success", but the excel file doesn't get updated. The job history shows below. Is this some permission's issue with the user account running SQL server agent? The local account is part of USERS, SQLSERVERMSSQLUSER, and SQLSERVERSQLAGENTUSER. Thanks for any input.

The credential of the account requires ddladmin level to drop a table in the package.  You need to assign it on the database that the package is supposed to work with.

Hope this helps/
