Getting import error when attempting to import files into sql server via deployed ssis package

Last Modified: 2018-05-23
I have created an SSIS package that import text and excel file from a central network location into tables on an SQL Server 2016 .  It execute flawlessly using the sql Data tools 2015. I then deployed the the project to the sql server.  The deployment went fine.  However, when I try to execute the import package I get the following error.  I've also attached the error report. I've checked the files and they are not open.  The Sql Server has been given the permissions to the file folder in question.  Just to cross my t's and dot my i, what types of permission does the sql server need in order to import files from a network location

RPS Import:Error: SSIS Error Code
DTS_E_OLEDBERROR. An OLE DB error has occurred.

Hello Jose,
I tried running it in 32 bit .  I went to the project menu, selected properties\Configuration Properties\debugging\ and set 64 bit runtime to false. I still getting the same results.  I'm new at ssis.


I just heard from the SQL server team and the package is being run  in 32 bit mode.


I have some more information.  I've been doing some testing and have found that the problem occurs when importing Excel and text files


Basically I found that the service account under which the ssis project was running did not have sufficient permissions
