Convert to CSV and import. Importing from excel has too many inherent problems. Back in 2002 I wrote a custom parser that had to handle this exact problem because even after hacking the jet drivers registry settings Excel still had problems. Just write it to a text file....It's very easy to write a simple .NET app to convert csvs to text automatedly.

thanks Dinesh but in Sql Server 2005 its easy too.. All you have to do is to use a data flow task and you are on!! BigGrin

Can you elaborate please? I thought what Dinesh described was a data transformation task. You mean there is an simpler more intuitive way? It's not obvious to me.

This is a year later, but maybe somebody finds their way here and encounters the "Test connection failed because of an error in initializing provider. Invalid UDL file." or similar UDL error. I got this and investigated other how-to-define-SSIS-Excel articles. This one
http://blog.tylerholmes.com/2007/12/walkthrough-connecting-to-excel-2007.html
mentioned that you must install "Microsoft Office 12.0 Access Database Engine OLE DB Provider" and gave this MS link:
http://www.microsoft.com/downloads/details.aspx?FamilyID=7554F536-8C28-4598-9B72-EF94E038C891&displaylang=en

When I install the MS component and follow the steps in the first link -- they are slightly different from this SQLServerCentral article -- the UDL errors go away.

If an additional download is indeed the fix, then that sucks -- MS gives us the option of picking a Connection Manager OLE DB Provider that is not loaded on the system...ugh.
