Excellent news.I have a question,when I save the excel file using the saveas function,will it save the excel as a 2010 version rather than a 2003 version?If that is the case then many of our clients would require 2010 office installed on their PCs.It would be great to hear from someone who has implemented the 2010 redist on production server.By the way Varun are you covered by microsoft support on a Beta release?Nice one Elliott and Varun.

I would guess that doing the "Save As" to 2010 would put the file somewhere the users can't see or touch. It would be a snapshot in time that you can load into SQL, and as a added benefit you won't have SQL locking the excel file on the users.

For those of you looking for more resources on this subject, I have two articles related that cover some of the same ground:

SSIS in 32- and 64-bits
Interacting with Office in SSIS

My #1 caution for those using Excel or other Office documents is to use the providers, and not the COM API, due to the Considerations for server-side Automation of Office.
For the ultimate discussion of problems, solutions, and workarounds for Excel issues in SSIS, you need to review Douglas Laudenschlager's series of posts.

Keep in mind when these articles were written and whether they still apply in light of the ACE 14 components. But definitely read them.

Hi all!

Found this thread while searching for posts that describe problems of using SQL 2008 x64 and Excel.

Here is an article I've written that talks problems and provides solutions for making SSIS work with the 64-bit Excel (ACE) provider.

Kind regards,
