Hi,
in a 64-bit dev machine I've a SQL Server (64-bit) + SSIS 2016 + Visual Studio Community 2019 (with the template for the Integration Services projects) + Access Database Engine 2016 64-bit.
I'm trying to use the Excel source in order to read a *.xlsx file but I cannot see any sheets:

For the SSIS solution, the Run64BitRuntime debug option is true:

Now, how could I solve a such issue, please? Thanks

    I already answered a similar question here:
    excel-source-stopped-working-in-ssis

    As a pre-requisite, a 32-bit Microsoft.ACE.OLEDB.12.0 (or 15.0 or 16.0) Provider needs to be installed on dev. machine with Visual Studio (VS).

    You need to do 2 things in Visual Studio:

    1. Set the SSIS project in 32-bit mode via Run64BitRuntime to false.
    2. In Excel Source Adapter, specify SQL statement instead of referring to Excel's sheet name only:
      • SELECT * FROM [SheetName$A1:B3], by specifying a certain range
      • SELECT * FROM [SheetName$], whole sheet

    P.S. It seems that it started to happen with the latest ACE 12.0 update v.14.0.7015.1000

    Make sure that your computer does not have any previous versions if you already Installed Microsoft Access Database Engine 2016 Redistributable. Otherwise it won't work.

    Hi @pmscorca ,

    Please download 32bit Access Database Engine and then install 32bit Access Database Engine in CMD using the following command:

    I had the same problem. The solution is simple. Just resave your excel sheet in (97-2003) format and everything will be fine.
