SSIS job package is not connecting to MS Access

edrz01 used Ask the Experts™
I am experiencing an SQL 2014 Job Package that is not connecting to MS Access when the package is either scheduled or manually running it. The package connects and runs fine when I developed it in VBS with no errors. The package dtsx was deployed to SSIS in the Integration Services Catalog SSISB.

Connection String value:  Data Source=\\xxxx\xxxx\xxxx\Databases\Mmaster.mdb;Provider=Microsoft.Jet.OLEDB.4.0;
Server Name:  \\xxxx\xxxx\xxxx\Databases\Mmaster.mdb
UserName: admin
Password: [left blank as there is no mdw and the mdb is not password protected]
InitialCatalog: NULL
RetainSameConnection: False

These are the Connections available through the Connection Manager, once I select the OLEDB, then I selected the Microsoft Jet 4.0 OLE DB Provider. It tests and connects with VBS, just not in the SSIS Server Agent Jobs.

You have not provided any error message, but I suspect a permissions problem.  The service-account that invokes the SQL-Agent-Job probably does not have access to the folder containing the Microsoft Access database file.

Change your SQL Agent job to use 32-bit runtime

SQL Agent - Job Step Properties


PERFECT!!!! One very simple step. The Access is 32-bit and SQL is 64-bit, never took that into consideration. I was able to add Step-2 to the job and both jobs ran perfectly. Thank you very much for your assistance.
