SSIS is the one of the best ETL tool available in market and it can load large amount of data from any heterogeneous data source whether structured, unstructured,application, cloud or real-time data. This post discuss the solution of a common problem that usually arise while importing data from excel data source.
For beginners while doing the extract, face some weird issues, which seems very fuzzy to solve at first. Such a problem is while doing extract from excel data source, after running the application shows error,
at Package, Connection manager “Excel Connection Manager”: 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.Error: 0xC020801C at Data Flow Task — Excel File, Excel Source : SSIS Error Code DTS_E_CANNOTACQUIRECONNECTIONFROMCONNECTIONMANAGER. The AcquireConnection method call to the connection manager “Excel Connection Manager” failed with error code 0xC00F9304. There may be error messages posted before this with more information on why the AcquireConnection method call failed.Error: 0xC0047017 at Data Flow Task — Excel File, SSIS.Pipeline: component “Excel Source” (1) failed validation and returned error code 0xC020801C.Error: 0xC004700C at Data Flow Task — Excel File, SSIS.Pipeline: One or more component failed validation.
And the extraction failed.
Reason for this run-time error is excel do not have 64-bit driver which is selected by default in SSIS running on 64bit OS. So solution is also hidden behind the reason, change the driver from default and you are good to go. Steps to solve is issue is,
Step 1: Navigate to Project-> [PROJECT_NAME] Properties.
Step 2: Navigate to “Debugging” option from left panel and from Right panel change Run64BitRuntime value to false.
