SSIS - loading different version of excel files
Posted on 2013-11-08
I am using SQL Server 2008 - SSIS to load excel files to database.
SSIS excel connection manager, lets you specify which type of excel file, you will be connecting to either xls or xlsx, you can not use one connection manager for both types, this only allows the user to always change an xlsx file to xls, then process it,
Is there a way to dynamically change the connection manager, based on the type of excel file, or should i just have two different SSIS packages called, when a different type is processed.
Say i have 2 files - test.xls and test.xlsx --- i want to process both files without changing excel connection manager info in SSIS.
