new ACE Driver for 64 Bit can be used directly for handling the execl files in SSIS

Download this driver and install it (available in both 64 Bit and 32 Bit)

http://blogs.msdn.com/b/sqlblog/archive/2009/12/29/how-to-connect-to-file-based-data-sources-microsoft-access-microsoft-excel-and-text-files-from-a-64-bit-application.aspx

Only change that will be required in the SSIS is to change the connection string.

Thank you all for reading the article.
Thanks Varun for the information but isnt it a beta version of the the driver?
That should help resolve the first two problems.Does anyone know whether the Desktop folder is being created as part of the install?

Thanks for this. Was having issues with running x64 SQL Server and getting the data from the x86 Office apss into it. So, this would solve the issue I'm having with Excel, but any idea what to do with MS Access? Getting this error:


OLE DB provider 'Microsoft.Jet.OLEDB.4.0' cannot be used for distributed queries because the provider is configured to run in single-threaded apartment mode.


May not be the right thread for this, but if someone could point me in the right direction that would be great.

Thanks,
Ryan

Here is the MS download link for the ACE 14 files:
http://www.microsoft.com/downloads/details.aspx?familyid=C06B8369-60DD-4B64-A44B-84B371EDE16D&displaylang=en
I don't believe it is beta, I believe this is the release redist version.

And I would start a new thread for the access discussion.

Please review the link I sent, I don't believe it is beta anymore, I could not find a single reference either on the download page or in the install that referenced Beta.

The referenced blog post was from december, the redist files I pointed at are from May of this year..
And coincidently, the blog was updated to point at the redist package..
