Excel SSIS Source


Task Factory Excel SSIS Source

Reading data out of Excel can be a pain! The native Excel Source built into SSIS often has issues retrieving data on a 64-bit machine and can read the wrong data types from Excel.

The Excel Source in Task Factory reads data out of Excel even when running on 64-bit machines. It can read ranged data and gives you an easy to use preview to ensure you have the right amount of data. Most importantly, it reads data out of a spreadsheet with the right data type.

Feature Highlights

  • Reads data out of an Excel file on 64-bit machines
  • Can read from data ranges
  • Formats the data with the proper data types as data is read out

Excel SSIS Destination


Loading data into Excel can be a painful task. It's hard to control the formatting and many times, things don't work on modern day machines in 64-bit.

The Excel Destination works natively with 64-bit machines while writing in data with the proper data types. As the destination is writing data, it can append or overwrite the existing data. It can also create an Excel table with more stylized data.

Feature Highlights

  • Loads data into an Excel spreadsheet in 64-bit mode
  • Specify the format of the data
  • Insert, append or replace data
