SSIS Excel Connection Manager software requirement

Hi, I have an SSIS 2008 Package with Excel connection manager. However, my LIVE machine does not have Microsoft office.
Can anyone please let me know if my package can run without office  ? What softwares are required to run SSIS package with Excel connections ?

Any help is much appreciated.

Thanks

The driver is indeed required (sorry, I read your previous post too quick)... But you don't need a full MS Office installation.

It should run... The driver that SSIS uses to connect with Excel is installed with SSIS, and you shouldn't need to install anything for your packages to run.

Hi LionKing, what if my LIVE server does not have MS OFFICE 2007 driver installed ? I don't think the SSIS package will run then ?

gvamsimba,

We have SSIS packages running on a server that doesn't have Office installed. Some packages read from Excel files, and they have no problem whatsoever.

Give it a try.

but you must have that office driver installed ..hence you have no issues....I am 100% sure that you cannot run the package with excel connection without the office driver...it is called access database engine...
