SSIS Package EXCEL Connection Error: Solution

on June 29, 2012

Issue Description:

Package was running fine


[Connection manager “Dest File”] Error: SSIS Error Code DTS_E_OLEDB_EXCEL_NOT_SUPPORTED: The Excel Connection Manager is not supported in the 64-bit version of SSIS, as no OLE DB provider is available.


You have an Excel connection. The package will need to run in 32 bit mode. To enable 32 bit mode, right click the project in the Solution Explorer and go to properties. Under Debugging, set the property Run64BitRunTime to False.
