Hi All,

I have an excel file with more than 256 columns. And the current driver (Jet OLEDb) doesnt supports that, it can read till 256 columns.

Please let me know how to load the data from the excel file to a sql table usiing SSIS 2005.

Thanks
Sam

You could try outputting to a CSV file and then importing that.

CSV files can also alleviate some headaches from newer versions of Excel, which don't always play so well with SSIS 2005.

The older versions of Excel also don't play nice with Excel

It's because Excel thinks it knows what you want: so that even when you ask for something specific, it gives you what it thinks you want, not what you asked for.

This seems to suit accountants

Hi Sam,

If you can use third-party solutions, check the commercial COZYROC SSIS+ library. It contains Excel adapters which support more than 256 columns.
