64bit SSIS Package run in 32 bit mode

Posted: April 11, 2012 in 64bit and Excel, BI, ETL

When importing Excel documents in SSIS on a 64 bit machine you may will encounter this error:

[SSIS.Pipeline] Error: component “Excel Source” (35) failed validation and returned error code 0xC020801C.

It may also tell you that it failed to acquire a connection.

This is because there is no 64bit driver for Access or Excel ā€“ with csv files you can use the Flat File connector.

To carry on working you need to set your project up to run in 32 bit mode. Right click on the project properties and go to debugging. Change the value in run64BitRuntime to False.
