Currently for a data flow task in SSIS, we have the following issue with respect to a Excel destination. More often than not we work in situations where we actually create the Excel spreadsheet columns before inserting data into it. In such a scenario the SSIS package fails during the pre-validation phase as it would not be able to acquire column metadata from an absent Excel file.

Thank you for your feedback and support of the SSIS product. This issue doesn’t currently meet the requirements for correction in SQL 2008. We're going to keep it open for triage in the next release.

Again we appreciate your time and support.
