Excel SSIS import table on a different row

Hello Experts Exchange
I have a Excel spreadsheet that I want to automatically import into SQL Server 2008, but the table in the excel spreadsheet is on row 31, how can I configure SSIS to ignore the first 30 row and start on row 31?

Regards

Couple of ways to pull this off:

1.

If you can connect to this file as a .csv, then in the File Connection there is a checkbox 'Number of header rows to skip' that can be set to 30.

2.

In the data flow task, between the Excel source and the Destination, write a Conditional Split that splits any rows where {some column} IS NULL to do nothing else, and any rows where {some column} IS NOT NULL continues on to the destination.

3.

Import all rows into your Destination table, then write an update that deletes any blank rows.
