Can we use .Xlsm (ExcelMacro-enabled worksheet) as a Excel data source in SSIS? Because while i am using this as a source it is throwing me the following error

TITLE: Microsoft Visual Studio

File path contains invalid Excel file. Please provide file with .xls extension.

If we cant use this, what is the soultion to change .Xlsm to .Xls?

What is your connection string?

Try this from :
Provider=Microsoft.ACE.OLEDB.12.0;Data Source=c:\myFolder\myExcel2007file.xlsm;Extended Properties="Excel 12.0 Macro;HDR=YES";
