Excel Source Editor (Connection Manager Page)
Use the Connection Manager node of the Excel Source Editor dialog box to select the Microsoft Excel workbook for the source to use. The Excel source reads data from a worksheet or named range in an existing workbook.
To load data from a data source that uses Microsoft Office Excel 2007, use an OLE DB source. You cannot use an Excel source to connect to an Excel 2007 data source. For more information, see Excel Connection Manager Editor.
The CommandTimeout property of the Excel source is not available in the Excel Source Editor, but can be set by using the Advanced Editor. For more information on this property, see the Excel Source section of Source Custom Properties.
To learn more about the Excel source, see Excel Source.
