SSIS Job failed (0xC0202009)

Y Zhu 6 Reputation points

I have an SSIS package with a simple data flow task that moves data from an Excel file to SQL Server. The package ran well in the Visual Studio, but the job failed in the SQL Server Agent.

I used a service account to run this job. This service account has access to both the Excel source and the SQL Server destination table.

Does anybody have an idea?

    Does the service account do have also write permission on the folder? It's mandatory, because when you open/access a XLSX file a new log file gets created.

    Better use a proxy account with the required permissions: Create a SQL Server Agent Proxy

    Hi @Y Zhu ,

    Source: "Microsoft Access Database Engine" Hresult: 0x80004005 Description: "Unexpected error from external database driver (1).".

    Could you please share the connectionstring of the excel connection manager?

    Please download and install the ACE driver.
