    I have created an DTS that is supposed to import fields from an excel file into a sql table, but when I run the DTS I keep getting the following error message:

    Error Source: Microsoft JET Database Engine
    Error Description: The Microsoft Jet Database engine could not find the object. Make sure that the object exists and that you spell it's name and the path name correctly.

    Has anyone come across this before? How did you manage to resolve it?

    The table doesnt exist in the Access Database
    Make sure it is there

    I am not using access. I am using a Microsoft Excel file.

    The file name and location are correct.

    Try creating a fresh DTS pkg making sure the file name and the path is correct.

    Apart from DTS another option might be to create an Excel sheet using the Excel.Application object and an Excel macro. It is possible to invoke an Excel macro from TSQL (using sp_OAmethod) but DTS is really much simpler to setup unless you need to implement features that are only accessible via the Excel API.
