when i load an excel sheet into the application. it is not getting uploaded .it tells to me that it is an invalid spreadsheet. i had created a table in EXCEL and i had loaded the data into the excel using ssis.

is there any way the user can import the data from excel to the appplication with out opening and saving the excel sheet. if the excel is opened and saved then the excel gets loaded into the application. but i dont want that.

How do you envisage a user initiating this job? Is it their own spreadsheet or one held centrally?

I'm assuming that your question is not just: "Can SSIS import data from Excel spreadsheets?" (to which the answer is 'yes', of course)

... and please clarify what you mean by "application."

Assuming the "application" is NOT Excel have the user attempt to open the sheet using Excel .... he mostly likely will receive an error message saying the the sheet is locked for edit by..... In which case it can only be opened in "Read only mode" ... In whcih case the opening by the application will have to be modified

If everything seems to be going well, you have obviously overlooked something.

this is how it is supposed to work

when the data gets loaded . the excel will be kept in a file share. then the users will upload the excel to share point.

right now i am loading the data to an excel and i am sending the excel to a user to check the excel if it is getting uploaded. he tells to me that if he opens the excel and saves it it gets uploaded .

if he tries to directly import the excel to the application.he gets an error that it is an invalid spreadsheet.

i want my excel to get directly loaded into the application with out saving it again at the user end.

Please help me.

How does SSIS fit into this equation?
