trying to Imprt data from Excel to Table in SSIS.

One of the column in excel is in Date format. But this column is not populating in to the tables.
It's giving different numbers. I even use Data Conversion but still giving the wrong result.

Input column : 8/30/2012

After Execute the package the column in the table gives like

Output Column : 41151

What is the datatype in your destination? It sounds like it is doing some datediff which happens when the destination is an int instead of a datetime.

Ding ding. There is the problem. Your destination is not a datetime but you are trying to put datetime information in it. Make your destination be datetime.

To see an example of the problem, open Excel and type 41151 in a cell. Then format that cell and display it as a date. What is happening is that your destination is varchar so ssis pulls your data and converts to the destination datatype. Why would you not want to use datetime for date information?
