You could try outputting to a CSV file and then importing that.

CSV files can also alleviate some headaches from newer versions of Excel, which don't always play so well with SSIS 2005.

The older versions of Excel also don't play nice with Excel ;-)

It's because Excel thinks it knows what you want: so that even when you ask for something specific, it gives you what it thinks you want, not what you asked for.

This seems to suit accountants :-D

Hi Sam,

If you can use third-party solutions, check the commercial COZYROC SSIS+ library. It contains Excel adapters which support more than 256 columns.
