SQL Server Compact Edition Connection Manager

A SQL Server Compact connection manager enables a package to connect to a SQL Server Compact database. The SQL Server Compact destination that Microsoft SQL Server Integration Services includes uses this connection manager to load data into a table in a SQL Server Compact database.

Note

On a 64-bit computer, you must run packages that connect to SQL Server Compact data sources in 32-bit mode. The SQL Server Compact provider that Integration Services uses to connect to SQL Server Compact data sources is available only in a 32-bit version.
