Please assist with error below:

Could not retrieve the table information for the connection manager 'Excel Connection Manager'.
Failed to connect to the source using the connection manager 'Excel Connection Manager'

This error occurs when I try to select the Name of the Excel sheet in the SSIS 2012 Excel Source Editor. I'm on a 32bit machine.

Thanks

Does the file referenced by the Excel Connection Manager exist?

This error has been sorted. I changed the debug option ‘Run64BitRuntime’ to False and it worked.

Thanks

Thanks for posting back the root cause so others can benefit. The Excel driver built-into SSIS is a 32-bit Jet 4.0 driver which cannot be used in 64-bit mode so your resolution makes a lot of sense. In case you prefer to have all your packages execute in 64-bit mode you can switch your package to use the newer ACE drivers which support accessing Access and Excel 2010 files in 64-bit mode:

Microsoft Access Database Engine 2010 Redistributable (includes ACE OLE DB Driver 12.0)

Please start a new thread. Preferably in either the SQL 2012 General or the Integration Services Forum.
