Hi,
I have a pivot table that shows rev/mgn information of tablets selling in top markets in the world. My interest lies in getting to the entire dataset behind the pivot. The way I would do it in excel is to double click on any cell in the 'grand total' row. Is there a way I can do it in SSIS where I can just pass the file name of the excel file & it would extract the data & save it as another excel file.

Many thanks in anticipation
MH

I assume the underlying data is stored in an Excel sheet?
In SSIS, you need to specify the Excel file and the sheet to import the data.

Hi Koen,
Basically in the excel file, data has been downloaded in a pivot format from a sql server (to which I dont have access). And this pivot has high level details. The only way I can see all details behind the pivot is to double click and expand. There is no tab/sheet in this excel sheet that has all the data. Is it possible to do the same step in SSIS?

Hi MH,

is the connection to the data source still there?
If yes,
- either access the data underlying the pivot directly in Excel using the already existing connection (DATA -> existing connections)
- or you try to use the connection string (visible in DATA ->Connection ->properties) in SSIS respectively without using Excel connection manager.

Kind regards,
Conny
