Can't create a flat file source

Tarik Fathi 1 Reputation point

I'm getting an error when trying to create an connection manager for a flat file. All other types of data managers work fine (like Exel, OLE DB...) exept for "Flat File Connection".

I also noticed that all the flat file connection in my older packages are showing an error now. Is it a bug in Visual Studio ?


Thank you in advance.

    Hi @Tarik Fathi ,

    What's your version of the VS and integration service project?

    If you create a simple package and add the flat file source, will it fail?

    If the error still occurs, please try to repair the VS.
