SSIS loading Excel validation error? RRS feed

  • Question

  • I created a package loading Excel file. I developed the package using test excel file c:\Test\Test.xls and use a config file to assign actual folder (the file names will be got from a foreach loop container) when run it.


    However, the package cannot run with a configure file which specify a different source folder and still ask for test.xls. It's not possible that it require reset the folder and file every time when it's used for a new folder.


    Information: 0x40016041 at Package1: The package is attempting to configure from the XML file "C:\working\Final3.dtsConfig".
    SSIS package "Package1.dtsx" starting.

  • Set DelayValidation = True on the connection manager and the data flow.

  • Hello jwelch,


    I have the same problem,  actually I change the property DelayValidation on the excel connection manage, the dataflow and over the package.  And really I still have the problem.  If I disable the configuration file in the menu SSIS>Package Configuration the package work fine.  I note that the problem begin when i try to change the user that run the package.  If I try to run the package with the user created the package work fine.



    Do you have some comment about that?

  • Have you verified that the new user account has permission to access the file referenced in the configuration account?

  • Can you post the complete set of error messages you are getting?

  • Hi there,

    If it still does not work, check to see if you have the package sensible information, encrypted to the user package creator (package properties), this inhibits another user to run the package (safety issues).

    Hope it helps,
