1. You need 1 Data Flow Task, containing an EXCEL source Connection and a SQL destination connection
2. Script Task to get list of sheets within the excel file
3. For Each ADO Loop Enumerator to loop through sheets

You also need to dynamically set source connection using variables/expressions. Currently, I don't have a working example/sample of it. May be you can look BOL for information on above.

There is a reasonably useful article on TechNet that describes most of the work needed to import data from multiple worksheets in an Excel file with SSIS.

http://technet.microsoft.com/en-us/library/ms345182.aspx

However, the last step in this article leaves you with a number of assumptions. Once you have followed all the steps listed in the technet article, this is what you have to do.

1. Add a Data Flow task to the For Each loop container.
2. In the Data Flow container, add an Excel Source component.
3. Set the OLE DB connection manager to the Excel connection manager that you would've already setup.
4. Change Data access mode for the Excel Source component to 'Table name or view name variable'. This will allow you to use the variable name to specify the name of worksheet, instead of hard coding it.
Note: You may want to use a specific sheet within the Excel file first in order for SSIS to pickup the various column names. Once you are done with the column mapping, you can change this setting back to variable name.

Now you can continue on with whatever you want to do with the data that is read from each worksheet, one worksheet at a time.

Hope this helps.

Hi there,

Thanks for posting the link http://technet.microsoft.com/en-us/library/ms345182.aspx.

However, you also wrote that we can add an Excel Source task in the Data Flow afterwards. And in the Excel Source, select the excel connection that we've already made.

I think it's incorrect. If we follow the link, the connection we create is an ADO.NET connection, not a OLE DB connection, which is what the Excel Source required.

Could you please correct that and advise what to do after the Foreach Loop is configured?

Thanks heaps.

For anyone still working on this, I found out how to pass the table name gathered in the ADO NET enumerator to the Excel source in the data flow.

1. Inside the ADO NET enumerator, add a data flow task.
2. Inside the data flow task, add an Excel source.
3. Open the Excel source, and point to the Excel data source set up in the file enumerator.
4. Select one of the sheets that shows in the drop down.
5. Close the Excel source.
6. Select the Excel source.
7. In the properties window, copy the name of the sheet you selected. It's in the 'OpenRowset' property.
8. Set this as the intitial string in your sheet name variable created to gather the sheet name from the ADO NET enumerator.
9. Select the Excel source.
10. In the properties window, change the 'AccessMode' to OpenRowset From Variable. This will change the property 'OpenRowset' to 'OpenRowsetVariable'.
11. Change the 'OpenRowsetVariable' to the variable created to hold the sheet name via the dropdown.
12. Open the Excel source. You should see your variable as the sheet name.
13. Click the 'Columns' tab to verify you can connect and mess with columns.
