To load data from a data source that uses Microsoft Office Excel 2007, use an OLE DB source. You cannot use an Excel source to load data from an Excel 2007 data source. For more information, see Configure OLE DB Connection Manager.

To load data from a data source that uses Microsoft Office Excel 2003 or earlier, use an Excel source. For more information, see Excel Source Editor (Connection Manager Page).

System_CAPS_ICON_note.jpg Note


The CommandTimeout property of the OLE DB source is not available in the OLE DB Source Editor, but can be set by using the Advanced Editor. For more information on this property, see the Excel Source section of OLE DB Custom Properties.

To learn more about the OLE DB source, see OLE DB Source.

  1. Add the OLE DB source to the Integration Services package, in SQL Server Data Tools (SSDT).

  2. Right-click the source component and when click Edit.
