I cannot access my Excel sheets in SSIS. The Excel version in the Connection Manager is Microsoft Excel 2007 (xlsx).
|Could not retrieve the table information for the|
connection manager 'Excel Connection Manager'.
Failed to connect to the source using the
connection manager 'Excel Connection Manager'
XLSX files don't use the out-of-the-box Microsoft.Jet.OLEDB provider, but they need the Microsoft.ACE.OLEDB provider. You either did not install it or you installed the 64bit version.
Download and install the 32bit version of the Microsoft Access Database Engine 2010 Redistributable. Because Visual Studio (SSDT/BIDS) is 32bit you can't use the 64bit provider for developing SSIS packages. If you already installed the 64bit version then you first need to remove it. You can't install 32bit and 64bit parts of office on the same machine. You will get an error when you run the installer (and you will get the same error if you have a 64bit version of Microsoft Office installed on your development machine):
However this means that you can't run packages with Excel Connection Mangers in 64bit on your development machine. You need to switch to 32bit, otherwise you will get an error like:

But since there is a 64bit driver... you could install it on your test/acceptance/production server and run the packages in 64bit (as long as you don't use Visual Studio on those servers).
