I have a SSIS with an OLE DB connection Manager pointing to an Excel File. In my OLE DB Source Editor, I have a sql statement that says : Select F1 as 'This', F2 as 'total' where F2 > 0

Column F2 is a Number, but yet when i execute the dtsx package I get
data type mismatch in criteria expression  (Microsoft Office Database Engine)

I am using office 12.0 access database engine OLEDB Provider

I tried to (CAST (F12) as int) > 0 but get null

Try this..
CAST (ISNULL(F12,0) as int)

Open in new window

and if there are any non-numeric values in this column,  you'll have to decide to either weed them out of the import..

Open in new window

or deal with it in the Excel spreadsheet before imporing.

Thanks I delt with the template in Excel. The Column was formated to a number.

I did have a formula in there, and said if column A was blank to make column 2 blank. Instead I made it = 0 if column 1 is blank, and even though it fills the column with zeros, it works. So I guess I will deal with that. Thanks
