Microsoft Office Drivers (64bit and 32bit) on the same Server

Is it possible/OK to install the Microsoft Office 32bit and 64bit drivers on the same server. We have a database server running MSSQL with Business Intelligence. I need SSRS to connect to a 64bit access database but I also need SSIS to connect to a 32 bit MS Excel file.

What is the best way to do this..?

Thanks, Greg

Install the 64 bit on the server and the 32 bit on the Virtual Server or the Hyper/V

Sorry I do not understand what you mean, I need both set of drivers on the same server... SSIS and SSRS are running on the same server.
