SSIS  - loading different version of excel files

Hello Experts,
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.

Any Idea?

Thanks

Your best method to handle this might be a conditional fork.  If it is an XLS file, go down this path - if an XLSX file, go down this other path.

Assuming that the entire package does not require the Excel file connection in every step, this would reduce code duplication and the chance that you fix a bug in one package, but not the other.

whatever is the file extension .xls or .xlsx always select excel version -windows 2007 . It will definitely work with both xls and xlsx file. :)
