Hi All, I'm attempting to import data into SQL Server from an Excel spreadsheet, but I consistently encounter an error message stating: "The 'Microsoft.ACE.OLEDB.12.0' provider is not registered on the local machine" from the System.Data namespace. I use SQL server management studio (v18.10) and microsoft excel (version 2302 Build 16.0.16130.20848) 64-bit Could someone kindly assist me with resolving this issue. Thanks

    Hi @Rajapriya Rajendran,

    It is a 32-bit vs 64-bit issue.

    You may try to install the Microsoft.ACE.OLEDB Provider for Both 64-bit and 32-bit.

    Here is a blog you may take a reference.
