Can someone point me to a few good links that illustrate how to use SSIS to read an Excel xls file and then insert that data into a SQL table? First I want to check for the existence of the xls file and if it is there proceed with the import. I have started by creating a script task but I cannot see where the connection from that task is made to the FileExists variable I defined so I can determine whether or not to proceed. I have both the script task and the OLE DB Destination task started but I do not get the second arrow indicating failure. I have been scouring the internet for example but have not found any that provide a solution.
