We receive a spreadsheet via FTP from a vendor and have to load the data into SQL Server. When I create the connection manager pointing to the spreadsheet and try to preview the data, I get the following error: SSIS Error Code DTS_E_OLEDBERROR. An OLE DB error has occurred. Error code 0x80004005. Error at Load the Excel Data to the Staging Table [Read all the Rows]; Opening a rowset for "CustomExtract$" failed. Check that the object exists in the database. If I open the spreadsheet in Excel and then go back and preview the data through the control, I can see the rows of data. We process other xlsx spreadsheets daily in SSIS so I think it has soothing to do with this particular spreadsheet. Cannot seem to get the Connection to read this particular spreadsheet. If anyone has experienced this behavior before, please point me in the right direction.
My plan B solution was to convert the spreadsheet to csv and then use a flat file connection to load the data. If anyone knows how to do this using a SSIS script task, it would be appreciated.
