  • Hello md-05,

    >>Could not find installable ISAM

    Could you please share how your connection string is defined?

    As far as I know, this error will usually be generated when the syntax of the connection string is incorrect. This commonly occurs when using multiple Extended Properties parameters. Below is a correct example:

    ConnectionString = “Provider=Microsoft.ACE.OLEDB.12.0;Data Source=E:\BMX\OPProject\2014\01\SavedFromExcel2007.xls;Extended Properties='Excel 8.0;HDR=YES'”

    If this does not work for you, please let me know.

  • Usually an indication that the connection string is incorrect. I would recommend posting your connection string so we can see the syntax you are using.
